    Evans vs. Bisping: Evans by Decision
    Evans just has too much better conditioning and wrestling. I see him being able to hang on his feet, but i think he will be smart enough to take him down when he needs to and pound on him in a very un-entertaining manor. I hate both these cocky pricks, and Bisping really should be able to pick him apart on his feet. But who knows.


    Karo vs. Chonan:
    Karo by Decision
    Ryo will make this a tough one for Karo, but i think Karo will just out point him and outlast him.


    Fisher vs. Edgar:
    Fisher by Decision
    Edgar cannot hang with Fisher on their feet and Fisher is too good on his back to lose the fight there.


    Alexander vs. Silva:
    Alexander by KO in the 2nd
    Silva is gonna play it smart for the first, if he cant get Houston down then i think he;s gonna play it very safe. Until Houston lands some random shot and puts him down.


    Doerkson vs. Herman:
    Herman by Decision
    I honestly dont think Herman is the better fighter, just fresher and younger and less beaten up. He should be able to avoid taking too much damage on his feet, even though his stand up is awful, and out point Doerkson on the ground in the 2nd and 3rd.


    Alves vs. Lytle:
    Alves by Decision
    Dude's an animal and Lytle is as tough as nails. Should be an amazing fight.


    Gono vs. McCrory:
    Gono by imes-oplata
    really dont care about this one.


    Aurellio vs. Cauldillo:
    Aurellio by rear naked in the 2nd


    J-lau vs. the dude who looks like he's 50: J-Lau by vicious GnP in the first

    Wanderlei by ko in the first, and Matt hughes by decision

    oh dammit! I'm already totally overlooking this card for the next!


    The only fight that really intrigues me is Houston vs Silva.

    Bisping by tko
    karo by decision
    fisher by...whatever
    Silva by knockout, chute box always has a place in my heart(which is no good for betting, I know this)

    The rest by... unforeseen occurrences that I dare not speculate upon because I am losing interest in my own opinion of this card.

    All that matters here is that Bisping loses

    Hopefully if he does he will drop down a class. But then again Rashad is so small that I dont think either one would over power the other into considering a drop.

    I'm guessing his wonderful attitude and show of respect after his last pitiful fight.

  14. Michael Bisping vs. Rashad Evans

    Evans standup sucks, Sean Salmon's domepiece notwithstanding. He can take Bisping down, but can he really punish him there? Matt Hamill has the bear-like power to knock bisping around with his slop punches, and I don't think Rashad does. If Bisping can stay active, he could gas Rashad out and otherwise get busy on his head. I pick Bisping by decision.


    Houston Alexander vs. Thiago Silva

    I'll get back to you after re-watching Silva's last fight. I'm not totally sold on Houston yet, although the man definitely has some power.


    * Ryo Chonan vs. Karo Parisyan
    Parisyan produces the most exciting decisions around. Chonan is an awkward fight for almost everyone, although he does have a tendancy to get controlled. Ryo has a shot because he's well-rounded and I expect he has more lasting power than Karo, but I don't know if he can take what is likely a slight advantage in the standup to the winner's circle. Karo will control him and beat him up. Karo by decision.


    * Frankie Edgar vs. Spencer Fisher
    Dynamite here. I have to go with the wrestling clinic Edgar put on vs. Tyson Griffin. If Edgar can come in and keep putting Fisher down, he can keep from getting the shit knocked out of him on the feet. Edgar by decision.


    PRELIMINARY CARD

    * Thiago Alves vs. Chris Lytle
    I predict punishment for Lytle. Lytle has just come up short too many times for me to believe he can hang. He's never been knocked out, but there's a first time for everything. Alves wins, one way or another.


    * Joe Lauzon vs. Jason Reinhardt
    J-Lau vs. Drag On impersonator. Reinhardt has never lost, never gone the distance, and only ever fought someone worth a shit once. Joe has little more experience than Jason does, but he does have some experience with real fighters instead of weekend warriors, and will most likely have a size and strength advantage, that he can use to get aggressive and keep Reinhardt on the back foot. J-Lau TKO round 1.

    * Marcus Aurelio vs. Luke Caudillo
    75% of Luke's 8 losses were due to submission. Aurelio has dropped 3 in a row, but he looked okay in all but the last one, where he fought a very dumb fight. He should be able to monster a sub in this one and the fanboys can again pretend he's top 5 in the division.

    * Akihiro Gono vs. Tamdan McCrory
    Gono is too crafty and experienced. Tamden is going to get frustrated being unable to do anything to him, and will start really reaching and making mistakes, which gono will exploit to his advantage. Gono TKO round 3.

    his only two wins are off of the same guy :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:
     
  16. Jason does have 18 wins in a row, and is undefeated. It's good for Lauzon if he smashes some tard that's 'undefeated' and it's good for UFC if the undefeated tard turns out to be a real fighter.

    Now I am thinking Doerksen will win this decision. He's a lot younger than I thought he was.

    I just havent seen him get any better over the past couple years.

    Evans vs. Bisping: Evans by KO, i still think Hamill won the fight.

    Karo vs. Chonan:
    Karo, don't really have any idea how this can end.


    Fisher vs. Edgar:
    Fisher by KO


    Alexander vs. Silva:
    Alexander by Decision


    Doerkson vs. Herman:
    Herman by Decision
    i agree, herman isn't that great of a fighter, but he's got the skills to dominate. i see it as a unanimous.


    Alves vs. Lytle:
    Lylte, he'll eat some punches, then get compossed and knock Alves out with a good punch combo.


    Gono vs. McCrory:
    don't know enough about them.


    Aurellio vs. Cauldillo:
    don't know enough about them
