    CroCop (He is my pick to win the tourney)
    Fujita (but would be suprised if wanderlei beat him)
    Nog (He will be in the Final)
    Hunt (Hunt is too powerful and has improved his ground game)

    I pick CroCop because I like him and I want him to win, but there's definitely a good chance he could win.

    Silva.

    Nog

    Barnett ( :fawk: if Aleks couldn't knock him out I don't think Hunt can, and Barnett's ground game is better than Hunts)

    i think silva is gonna get fujita, he really disappointed me against thompson last fight, he was useless in the clinch. Just wat for silva to get him in there and start dropping those knees. It will be the rampage match all over again

    Oh man Wanderlei is going to lose to Fujita, imo. That's a pretty big and skilled fighter for him. Much like Hunt was. He obviously doesnt have the standup and superhuman chin of Hunt, but is a better wrestler.

    I wonder if he could defend if Fujita took him down and started to pound on him.

    awesome card...to the people thinking fujita will beat silva...why? fujita is a physical monster...but his skills are really weak...his takedowns are decent...not excellent even

    i heard this was also official....

    There will also be a non-tournament bout with Japanese judoka KAZUHIRO NAKAMURA against Chute Boxe's EVANGELISTA "CYBORG" SANTOS.

    the bigger news from this press conference i was waiting for is a little disappointing...about PRIDE's big problem with Fuji TV terminating their contract...they announced they dont have any broadcast partner and now PRIDE is satellite only...even in japan...read here...

    I'm a fan of Wanderlei, I just think it would be a hard(er) fight for him to win. I do think he is a good wrestler, and will give Silva trouble on the ground. But he might try to stand with Silva, and I think Silva would win that battle.

    I think it'll be a good fight to watch.

    I'd agree to this, and would hope for a better CroCop v Fedor.

    That'd be a nice Silva/CroCop rematch. No draws this time.

    i can't wait for the finals, it would be awesome to see another
    nogueira vs. crocop
    or nogueira vs. silva that would be a good match

    i'm basically rooting for nogueira to take this GP, he deserves another shot at Fedor

    If they fight again I swear it will happen the exact same way. I do hope it happens though just incase Fedor decides not to take it to the ground and keep it standing.

    I'm picking CroCop, Silva, Nogueira and Hunt. I am looking forward to all 4 of these fights however I'm expecting all of them to go to judge's decision.

    Yoshida vs. CroCop will be the best of the night. I think it is going to be very difficult for Yoshida to take someone as strong as Mirko to the ground, not saying he doesn't have a chance though. But I don't think CroCop will be able to knock out Yoshida either. CroCop by decision.

    Silva will not make the same mistake he did with Mark Hunt. Wandy has a definite advantage in speed and that will be his biggest asset in this fight. When he gets Fujita to the ground he will make sure to do enough work to get the decision.

    Werdum vs. Nogueira will obviously be an all out ground war. I think Nog's boxing will give him the slight edge to get the decision.

    I agree that Barnett does have the superior ground skills, but I don't think Hunt is going to let this one go to the ground. Hunt's takedown defense keeps getting better and there is no question that he can out strike Barnett.

    In the semis I would like to see Silva/Nog and CroCop/Hunt just so there is a guarentee of seeing Wanderlei fight Nogueira. What do yall think???
