UFN 29: Maia vs. Shields is now in the rear view mirror, all that is left to do is check out the medical suspensions list. The obvious concern in the fallout of the event is how Mike Pierce’s leg is doing, turns out it may not be too bad.

    I think Dana should give Palhares another fight in Las Vegas and we invite Frank Mir, Mark Hunt and a few others to beat the living sh-it out of him….

    People hate Palhares huh? seems like a bunch of haters. I'm switzerland to the guy. I don't really like him all that much but man he's got a gift. Plenty of guys on Steroids, Plenty of Guys on Steroids win fights, Not many can pull off non stop leg locks which have grown mostly ineffective in MMA. Steroids or not he's a monster
