    Liddell vs Couture - Liddell by KO 2nd round
    Mir vs Cruz - Mir by decision
    Babalu vs Arsdale - Babalu by sub 3rd round
    Sakara vs Sinosix - Sakara by KO 1st round(I think this might be the fight I want to see the most because of the hand speed Sakara showed at 55)
    Vera vs Eilers - Vera KO 1st
    Buentello vs Aldana - Aldana KO in the 2nd
    Monson vs Hinkle - no idea on either fighter
    Diaz vs Riggs - Riggs by ref stoppage 2nd round
    Jardine vs Whitehead - Jardine by decision


    I'm still trying to decide if I even want to order this ppv. Having a hard time deciding if it's worth the $40. ​

    Do a group buy if you have friends who are into it. Doesn't seem like the best, but definately worth watching.

    $40?? I thought they were usually around $30... I was going to order it, but if they are going to try and price gouge us fuck 'em...

    My picks:


    Liddell vs Couture
    Liddell by KO - Not to take anything away from Randy is he is one of my favorites, but I think the 1st fight was a fluke in that Chuck underestimated Randy.

    Diaz vs Riggs
    Diaz by submission - Riggs has never really impressed me.

    I hate to say it, but these are the only 2 fights that I am familiar with both fighters and can thus make an educated guess on who will win...

    couture vs lidell is the only one that really excites me...lots of big boring heavyweight matchups on this card...im interested in seeing sakara again though

    Liddell vs Couture - liddell decision
    Mir vs Cruz - mir decision
    Babalu vs Arsdale - babalu sub 3rd
    Sakara vs Sinosix - sakara tko 2nd
    Vera vs Eilers - eilers
    Buentello vs Aldana - buentello
    Monson vs Hinkle - dont care
    Diaz vs Riggs - diaz sub
    Jardine vs Whitehead - dont care

    I have trouble believing your friend's cousin... Diaz is WAY too cocky to even hint at a possible loss...

    I also have trouble seeing how you guys are thinking Liddell will win by decision... I could see Randy winning this way, but I think Liddell will either KO Randy or lose...

    maybe just cocky for the camera :dunno:

    on-camera personas are different for lots of fighters


    and it can easily be a decision if randy just pins chuck against the fence forever and runs down the clock

    My best friend trains with Van Arsdale, he looks really good right now, and is really confident. I fully expect Van Arsdale to win in the 2nd

    When some of you make picks do you do any searching?

    Liddell over Couture, KO 2nd Round

    Mir over Cruz, Sub 1st Round

    Babalu over Arsdale, however he wants to win 1st round :)

    Sinosic over Sakara, rear choke 2nd round

    Vera over Eilers, KO first Round

    Aldana over Buentello, KO first Round (Aldana has knocked out every opponent generally within the 1st minute of every fight he has had, this dude is no joke, forget Paul's "past")

    Monson over hinkle, choke in 1st Round

    Riggs over Diaz, TKO 2nd round (could go either way, if Diaz wins it will be sub 1st round)

    Jardine over Whitehead, Ref Stoppage from Whitehead running out of the ring because he is tired of getting hit 2nd round :)

    oops :o

    it's a toss up right now IMO then. depends on both of their conditioning and both of their game plans. randy's one of the most intelligent fighters out there, so i would bet that he'll be prepared in that sense

    I agree with the person that said Chuck underestimated Randy the 1st fight, I don't think Randy could beat him again, but Saturday will prove that opinion to be true or false.

    Only fight I want to really see is Randy vs Chuck and Babalu vs Arsdale. The other fights... well what I'm trying to say is, not worth my $40. But I wish the best of luck for the other fighters!

    You should. They each hold one victory. It's not like it's Silva taking on Saku for the third time, this actually means something.

    liddell's arguably (and almost undeniably) the best LHW in UFC, and couture has beat him convincingly before.
