GSP pulled from 137 Card - Diaz vs Penn now main event

UFC President, Dana White, addressed the fans over Twitter:
I just land in NYC and what do I always say!? I have to deal with bad shit everyday!! GSP is out with an injury!!! It's GSP'S knee. We will sit Carlos to wait for GSP. It's looking so far like he could be ready in a couple months. Still early to tell tho
I was looking forward to this, (mainly because of how exciting Condit is), so I'm a little bummed. However, the UFC 137 card should be wicked anyways. Speculation is out if the Diaz vs Penn will be 5 rounds or not.

Kimbo Slice's 2nd professional boxing match

Kimbo Slice had a rough time with MMA, mainly his conditioning and ability to take leg kicks. It seems boxing will be his combat sport in the mean time, and he's started off strong with two KOs in his first two fights, hope this second guy has medical insurance cause he got face-planted KO'd. Not to say his opponents are top quality, but he's still fun to watch.

Here was his first fight:

And this is the most recent one (actual fight around :29 into the video):

UFC moving back to 7PM PT/ 10PM EST start time

If you didn't know already, the UFC decided to test out a new start time - 9PM EST, and ran with it for 8 events. It seems the test is over because they have announced that it will resume back to it's old time, with the prelims starting at 9pm and the main card at 10pm.
Since I'm an east-coaster I'm kinda bummed out, I enjoyed the early start time because it meant more sleep for me on Sunday. I'm assuming the drop in times maybe dropped the ratings a little bit and frustrated the west coasters.

The 'new' time will resume for UFC 141, which will be on December 30th. So what do you guys think, for this new time or against it, or does it even bother you at all :P?
