    I know its old news but for those of you who didn't hear, these 3 are fighting in the UFC soon. I think that Wand will have trouble, to me he is a good fighter but highly over-rated. His wrestling is weak and coincidentally chuck liddell is an awesome wrestler (Div 1 if I remember correctly). Baroni... didnt' do so hot at 205 but now that he is fighting down one class, maybe he will prove to be successful. And Fujita, this guy I have to see against the UFC heavyweights. Although he lost against Silva, I think he will have an impressive fight to say the least against whoever he gets matched with, hopefully Tim Sylvia :mamoru:.

    As far as I know Baroni has always fought at 185.

    Wandy has faced some good wrestlers, Henderson and Arona come to mind and he's beaten both. I do agree Wandy's weakness is wrestling but I don't see this fight going to the ground at all. The fight should be awesome I still don't know who I think will win.

    when baroni beat kondo i was like...wtf kondo you really suck. You've had more experience than so many active fighter, but you have failed. Then baroni kept rolling on, he's really getting alot better.

    since when has chuck used wrestling? hes hopeless on the ground, only skill is his ability to stand up against the fence.

    hasnt needed to, his fights rarely go to the ground with the exeption of

    couture/liddell 1 , rampage/ chuck , and the first horn/ liddell .... not that it

    matters for the silva fight i doubt it will go to the ground much, however,

    the sobral fight might be a diff story .... chuck has a really good sprawl, he

    just has to be in shape so he doesnt gas out and can stay focused.

    wandie and chuck is gonna be a slug fest chucks not gonna take a BJJ black belt to the ground and silva's take down is sloppy compared to chucks sprawl.

    Baroni meh he hasnt impressed me ever.

    Fujita is a tough guy and can take a beating I think he would be HW champ if he fought in the UFC.

    Fujita only have one thing going against him in the UFC, early stoppage. Fujita can eat shots and keep on comming, but if that does happen in the UFC the fight might stop. But even then I dont see anyone catching Fujta as much as Silva did.

    chuck could probably beat fuj, just cause of his style.

    as far as wandy and chuck go, neither want to bring it to the mat -- i guarantee they'll both do everything they can to keep it standing

    wandy has better conditioning and better combos. no kicking/stomping grounded opponents is a huge disadvantage

    chuck has better KO power, but his conditioning is questionable. he's better suited for the cage, so he has an advantage there


    i think it's a complete toss-up. there's absolutely no way to predict a winner here
