    Dustin Hazelett [​IMG] Vs. Stevie Lynch [​IMG]
    My pick: Hazlett. He has far more experience in not only fights, bt big fights. This will only be Lynch's 5th fight in his career.
    Hazlett via TKO from punches in the first

    Scott"Hands of Steel"Smith [​IMG] Vs. Ed"Short Fuse"Herman [​IMG]
    My pick: Smith. Scott is a great wrestler just like Ed. I've been very impressed with Scott's takedown defense, and I think it will give Ed fits. Scott will keep this fight standing, and finish Herman on the feet.

    Smith via KO punch in the 2nd round.

    Eddie Sanchez [​IMG] Vs. Colin"Big C"Robinson [​IMG]
    My pick: Sanchez. This is a gift fright from the UFC for making him take a beating from Cro Cop.

    Sanchez via ground and pound TKO in the 1st

    Clay Guida [​IMG] Vs. Tyson Griffin [​IMG]
    My pick: Griffin. I basically flipped a coin to decide this fight. Griffin think will be stronger in thie fight, and will be able to control pace and position.
    Griffin by RNC in the 3rd. FIGHT OF THE NIGHT!

    Hector Ramirez [​IMG] Vs. Forrest Griffin [​IMG]

    My pick: Griffin. Forrest isa tough kid, and I expect him to come back in a big way after a very tough loss in his last fight.

    nice to see a prediction thread with pictures and what not, but I'd suggest not buying this PPV unless you are a die hard Rich Franklin fan

    the other fights are probably going to be scrappy-style entertaining fights but nothing too related to the rankings or too technical

    no, he'll choke him out, but MacDonald's stand up is fucking bad.

    my predictions:

    Franklin: 3rd Round TKO
    Forrest: Unan Dec. (i wont be suprised to see him take a beating again though)
    Tyson: Unan Dec.
    Jay Mac: 2nd Round RNC (he'll lose the stand up, and then get rory down, hit him a few times, and get his back)
    Smith: Unan Dec. (his takedown defense is not great, but hopefully he will outgame a man with terrible striking)
    Sanchez: 2nd Round KO (im guessing lots of feelign out in the first, then throwing leather early in the second)
    Hazlett: Round 1 guillotine
    Davis: Round 2 KO

    nah

    okami's best chance is obviously to GnP, but that would require taking Ace down and mounting which will be difficult

    Ace has better striking and submissions, and his cardio is VASTLY superior

    As much as I'd love to pick Okami, his striking and defense look disastrous against Swick. I believe franklin has much better striking than Swick and much more power and could put Okami away where Swick couldn't. Plus Rich has one hell of a Takedown Defense. On that note, I hope it's a good fight, but to make it that Okami needs to fight smarter on his feet than what I saw last time.

    I'll have to take Franklin.

    I wouldn't put Franklin's takedown defense that high. He will probably keep it standing for a little while. Get taken down a few times, but not take too much damage and eventually pull a decision after doing some damage standing. Just my guess, and I'll probably be wrong.
