Chase, you might wanna watch this one...

Brock Lesnar vs. Frank Mir - I hope Mir breaks this guys arm off. Any moron who still refers to himself in the third person needs a serious beatdown. Come on dude, this aint WWE.
Mir via armbar round 1.

Sylvia vs. Nogueira - Tough one to call. Im rooting for the local boy. I hope Sylvia picks him apart. He'll need to catch him though, as Nogueira can take some punishment. Sylvia via decision.

Marquardy vs. Horn - This should be a battle. I think Marquardt will win, but I'm rooting for Horn. Marquardt via decision.

Almeida vs. Yandt - Have to take Almeida in this one. We'll see if he's still got it. Yandt is coming in on short notice so I have to think Ricardo has the advantage. We'll see.

Griffin vs. Tibau - I'm a little disappointed this fight is an undercard, I'd like to see it. But Griffin will end up winning, probably ground and pound out a tko in the second.

Terry Martin vs. Marvin Eastman - Terry Martin has one hell of a chin and is a good wrestler. I see him either knocking Eastman out, or going the distance ot get the decision

OTher than Rob Emerson getting knocked out, that's about all I know.

Looking forward to March. WAR HENDO!

My picks for this weekend...

Mir by arm bar. If this fight goes the distance, I could see them giving it to Lesnar just because of all the hype.
Nogueira by some sort of submission.
Horn by submission
Almeida by tko
Griffin by tko
Martin by tko
Nakamora by tko
Lytle by tko
Heath by tko

On a side note. I am rooting for Silvia, but I have this sneaking suspicion that Nogueira will take him.

One of the weaker UFC's I've watched. That Lesnar guy is a friggin animal. A bear. That stepped in the trap.

I think submissions make the fights suck. They should have to submit them two or three times. Its stupid... get ur ass kicked, get ur ass kicked, get ur ass kicked... win with one little arm grab, leg grab, neck grab. They should just call it jujitsu.

Or they could just let him break the dude's leg.

Submissions are what make it a chess match vs. a boxing match. It's also what levels the playing field for guys like Mir to get in the ring with beasts like Lesnar.

That fight came to mind the other night. I think it would be a good one.

Tanks just there to take some punches...it's not a real fight.

Put a real mixed martial artist in there, oh say, Frank Mir, and watch Kimbo's leg get broke.

I like him against Lesnar though.....Lesnar would chew him up and spit him out. I was amazed how quick 265 pounds could be.
