    Its refreshing to see Ceasar not being a prick for a change. The fight sells itself and there isn’t a need for smack or disrespect by either camp.

    Doesn’t Ceasar take any responsibility for getting his guy on a plane not once but twice and making sure he wasn.t 40 mins late to the conference call with BJ after payingthe price with GSP. I seem to recall seing Ceasar at many a press conference with Nick. At the end of the day Nick is a grown man But no one in his whole camp or Management team or his Brother for petes sake didn’t have the schedule and impart the importance or magnatude or the situation toNickand give him a push to show up. Take responsibility for your falures Ceasar, You are one of the few people Nick actually listens to.
    I think it will only stay standing for about 2 mins of each round as Nicks reach may prove difficult for BJ. Its a pick em fight inmy book!
