    Roli Delgado looked like a fucking hobo during the weigh in this morning :rofl: and the shove that he put on Kelly was pretty bad ass. Should be a good fight

    Denis Stojnic looked fucking fat

    Silva's stare @ Franklin was badass

    Man, i really don't know who to pick in any of these fights. Davis will likely win his fight but the rest are pretty close matchups imo. Obviously i wanna say that Cro Cop is gonna fucken destroy mostapha but who fucken knows these days man lol.

    I'm glad Crocop is on the main card :bowdown:. I really hope we get to see glimpses of old Crocop, he was one scary fucking dude. I can't even imagine the power behind those kicks, and he makes it look so fucking effortless. I kick pretty hard, but he throws his whole body perfectly into it and has amazing speed. I just wanna see him demolish someone again :wtc:

    Rich and Wandy look :eek3: at 195.
    CroCop is either going to be :bowdown: with all this added weight, or he could be done :wtc:
    Hardy is going to get destroyed by any strong grappler, dude just looks small at 170
    Winner of Swick vs Saunders should get a cheeseburger. Loser should get two.
    Fischer looks smaller than usual, I think coming light for this fight is a good idea.
    Uno has the smaller abs on earth.
    And if AKA expects Velasquez to be the #1 HW in the world, they should get him a nutritionist. Just sayin.

    Agreed. And it's great to see Mirko and Uno back in the UFC. I'm hoping they both win big.

    Rich Franklin vs. Wanderlei Silva (Franklin is much more technical and Wandy doesn't have the chin, recovery or stamina he used to)

    Cheick Kongo vs. Cain Velasquez (Velasquez should be able to take Kongo down with ease and then beat him into mud)

    Mike Swick vs. Ben Saunders (this could be a close one, but I pick Swick based on being better technically and having superior experience)

    Marcus Davis vs. Dan Hardy (Even if he is a "fake Irishman" and a "Plastic Paddy", he's stronger and has faced stiffer competition)

    Spencer Fisher vs. Caol Uno (Another very close one. Fisher is tough, but not the most skilled fighter out there while Uno is determined and very skilled. I just hope Uno doesn't catch a big punch early on.)

    Mirko Filipović vs. Mostapha Al-turk (Mirko is bigger and more determined and has apparently gone back to working on his hands. All good things.)

    Terry Etim vs. Justin Buchholz (Another one that's VERY hard to predict. Honestly, they're so close I'm just going on a vague feeling here.)

    Dennis Siver vs. Dale Hartt (Sityodtong training and gameplan ftw)

    Paul Taylor vs. Peter Sobotta (I don't know much about Sobotta, but I've never been too impressed with Taylor. I like his attitude, but he makes a lot of mistakes.)

    Paul Kelly vs. Rolando Delgado (strength and experience advantage... Delgado beat the guy who'd only fought Olaf, big deal...)

    Denis Stojnic vs. Stefan Struve (honestly, no clue who these guys are... but, wait. I remember Struve got blasted by Dos Santos, right? Ok, I'll pick against him. Why not?)

    John Hathaway vs. Rick Story (A step up for Hathaway. We'll see if he can handle it. Something makes me think it'll make him sharper.)
