    Main Card Bouts:
    -Chuck Liddell (#1 Light Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Quinton Jackson (#8 Light Heavyweight in the World)*
    -Karo Parisyan (#7 Welterweight in the World)* vs. Josh Burkman
    -Ivan Salaverry vs. Terry Martin
    -Keith Jardine vs. Houston Alexander
    -Chris Leben vs. Kalib Starnes

    I'm excited for all the main fights, save maybe the Jardine fight...I have no idea about the H. Alexander guy that he is fighting. Except that he's from the midwest and has a good record but has fought a lot of scrubs. I wish the rumour that he was fighting Shogun was true.

    Martin versus Salaverry..is going to be great. Martin is explosive, I hope he gets to fight Swick before/if Swick moves down to 170 lbs. Salaverry is a very intelligent and tricky fighter...I am really curious to see what he does to counter Martin's raw power.

    Also I hope Karo humiliates Burkman in a devastating fashion. That will teach him for calling himself "The People's Warrior"...which is another topic all together. Hopefully Kalib Starnes will also submit Chris "The Red Rooster" Leben. :bowdown:


    The main event is also going to be sick! I don't even really care who wins really, I like both of them. Should be a great event!

    Also, Kalib Starnes beat Jason Macdonald who also beat Chris Leben. However, I have a bad feeling that the MMA math won't work here...Leben has a decent shot of beating Starnes by TKO or whatever. Even though Kalib has his black belt in BJJ.

    I really hope Rampage pulls an upset and Karo throws Burkman on his head over and over again.

    alls I knows is I wants to sees some fuckin JUUUUUDOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    and also I think chuck will win which by current standards means rampage is gonna spike chuck on his head a couple times and then finish him with a toe hold.

    Yeah he sucks, I really hope Starnes chokes him out like MacDonald did. I loved seeing that.

    It blows my mind how many fighters out there have their Black Belt in BJJ. When I was training my instructors were brown with 2 stripes under Machado brothers. My instructors were INSANE and were close to 35 years old. How do these young guys get their black belts so quickly. I think it is because of 2 reasons.

    1. They are prodigys
    2. They go to a school that promotes you quickly and hands out black belts like they are skittles.


    I mean I thought you had to be "one with nature" and all that crap to get a black belt....I mean you gotta really be INSANE on the ground....

    Yeah, some schools give belts out easier than others...for some reason I can't find at the moment who gave him his BB but I think he trained at the good Gracie school in Torrance for awhile :dunno:

    except for leben i want to watch all those fighters fight, i can think of about a million people to watch other than leben but i guess since there are so many TUF fans who only know fighters from those shows, his silly hair color and tats make him popular even though he's junk
