I see it going like this

GSP over Hughes (but will be rooting the other way)
Liddell over Silva (should be a duesy)
Sokoudjou over Machida
Gulliard over Clementi

I don't know much about the rest of the fighters

I am rooting for Hughes as well, but I think GSP will take him again unfortunately. GSP Wins

The Lidell vs. Silva is a toss up. I think Chuck has the advantage in this though in that Silva is not use to the cage so much anymore. Plus you can't knee or kick to the head while an opponent is down, like you could in Pride. Lidell Wins

I am hoping Soko will live up to his hype. But we have seen how the hype has been just that lately. Machida Wins

I am rooting for Clementi vs. Guillard, but Guillard might be too physical for Rich to handle. Clementi Wins...best post fight commentary I have heard in a long time. :D

I would look for Eddie Sanchez to take out Palelei by KO in the first round. Sanchex Wins

James Irvin will wipe the mat with Luiz cane. Irvin Wins

Manny Gamburian will KO Nate Mohr. Gamburian Wins

Dean Lister will submit Jordan Radev with ease. Lister Wins

Tony Desouza will submit Roan Caneiro. Caneiro Wins

And the last fight...not a clue because I don't think I have ever seen either of them fight before.

Yeah, the fights were a little lack luster. The TUF finale a few weeks back was pretty good though. There was one of the best fights I have ever seen that night. The main event fight was pretty good too that night.

I thought the Liddell fight was worth the price of admission, even if they were gassed by the end of 2. No way either of them should get a title shot very soon.

Looking forward to Shogun vs. Tito. If Shogun is in shape, he should win. Hell he almost beat Forrest when he was out of shape.

Right, right....nothing worse then the best fighters in the world matching up. Wish they would show all the fights though.

Thats your opinion. My opinion is that its weak 90% of the time. Theres usaully one good fight per pay per view. I dont think they are the best fighters in the world, I think they are overrated.

You got a few guys in there that can whip ass, the rest are just filler. Nothing but a bunch of tatted up HGH junkies that throw haymakers. Nothing like a glorified bar fighter, thanks Chuck Lidell.



GHEY

Besides Matt Linland and Urijah Faber, name one other non-UFC MMA fighter worth a shit. And Fedor doesn't count because he is fighting no-name hacks. Once Fedor steps into the ring with the likes of Randy C., Arlovski or Silvia, then I will say he is worthy of such stature. Until then...he is just another hype...like the pride fighters and your boy Kimbo.

Faber is pretty much UFC. He's a big reason WEC content is on the the UFC website.

Josh Barnett :P :P :P

Barnett is ok, but he hasn't really faced much competition. He hasn't fought for over a year either. So that kind of downs him in the rankings a bit.

Then where are they?




Sitting next to you at resturants, walking past you in the streets, everywhere. Im not saying that all the fighters are weak, just about 85% of them. Most of these guys train for a year, with some limited background in something, hop in the ring for thier fixed fight and there you go. Then, in two months when everyone is talking about them, they get hammered by some nobody. Why? Because its all hype and its basically rigged. Some lucky chump comes in and lands a giant haymaker, and then down goes your "27th degree blackbelt in ju-junksu and college wrestling phenom that has been training for this his whole life" ( With, mind you, a 10-6-2 record. ) Its junk man, plain and simple. The next UFC you watch, put on your sheep suit, like everyone else.
