Aldo/Grispi to co-headline UFC 125

Scoop McGillicutty breaks the news:

It didn’t take long for the UFC to start working on getting Jose Aldo his first opponent as an official member of the organization.

Versus.com has learned that the UFC is targeting a featherweight title fight between Aldo and top contender Josh Grispi. Contracts have been sent out to both camps.

The fruits of this are bearing early.  Let’s play a game, Jackals – and I promise I won’t share it with another website, since some of you are like high school girls with your jealousy (I promise you like I promised them, only your hate really matters to me): match make with the new rosters.  I know Cerrone and Guillard are both Jackson fighters, but I literally salivate over that match up.  Shalrous/Sherk?  Varner/Miller?  What lightweights can you see making a journey down to 145?

The countdown to signing Omigawa and Fernandes begins now.

    Damn, that’s pretty fucked up to Koch. I hope he knocks out Grispi just to fuck up the schedule haha.

    I am excited to see how Cerrone and Varner do in the ufc. As well as Pettis. They’ll probably get humped to death though. Benson will get killed by Frankie.

  • mamoru says:

    I want them to bring in Hioki, personally. And Omigawa, and once Bellator goes down in flames, Warren and Soto and them too.

    As for fights, make Guida cut and put him in there against Vasquez or something. Also, Diego at LW vs Bendo.

  • agentsmith says:

    Cerrone vs Florian.

  • mamoru says:

    If Griffin decides to cut down to fw him vs Hominick could be fun too.
    But really, more than anything I want to see Diego fight Bendo to figure out once and for all who jesus loves more.

  • Carcass says:

    Omigawa is a fucking joke. Hioki deserves it way more. That decision was a fucking robbery and Omigawa only got it because his manager ALSO RUNS THE FUCKING PROMOTION.

  • mamoru says:

    Omigawa and the sengoku judges certainly did their best to make me hate mma in 2009. I don’t think he’s a joke though, far from it. He started out as a joke, but somewhere along the way he turned into a good fighter.

    But yeah, Hioki is top 3 stuff, and is incredibly fun to watch, just a shame he sometimes fights really stupid.

  • iamphoenix says:

    urijah faber vs anderson silva.

  • Makinal says:

    cerrone vs kenflo
    varner vs jeremy stephens
    shalorus vs guida

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    They asked Grispi to step out of his fight against Koch. Pretty fucked, but cant blame Grispi.

  • Nachtfalter says:

    The multitude of matchmaking opportunities this merger creates are truly staggering. One match-up that immediately popped into my mind for some reason was Cerrone vs. Guida. On the other hand, Guida finally dropping to 145 would be interesting too, of course.

  • subo says:

    Yeah, they “asked” Grispi if he’d rather fight for the belt. Dude already beat Hominick – it’s the right call.

    I hate the idea of putting Donald against a good wrestler but he could sub Clay. Can’t believe I forgot about the Iron Broomstick – sign him too.

  • GoldenArms says:

    subo is a fag

  • subo says:

    Golden, how does it feel to know that your most hated entity is getting stronger and will never die?

  • G Funk says:

    Ridiculous out of left field post haha!

  • SST says:

    Gomi vs Cerrone keep it standing bitches.

  • SST says:

    No, that’s a typical response to Subo posts

  • mamoru says:

    Grispi is the right call for the title shot, I think.
    Hominick can catch the next beatdown.

  • subo says:

    yes, I seem to anger homophobic idiots. go figure

  • GoldenArms says:

  • iamphoenix says:

  • YEAH RIGHT says:

    The last 10 comments hit it right on the head.

  • subo says:

  • YEAH RIGHT says:
