    i really hope Ausserio wins...i like him, and i hate Sylvia

    Ausserio's pretty well rounded, but he's only like 5'11-6'. pretty good at finishing too

    :werd:

    Sylvia is just too big though, i bet he's outweighs him by 40lbs ontop of his 8 inch reach advantage.

    yeah, but hopefully Silva uses his BJJ and takes him down early. i hope he doesn't stand toe to toe, even though he packs a punch

    For some reason I really can't imagine Sylvia being all that good at bjj.

    tim sylvia. He looks so sluggish when he throws punches/kicks. When hes on the ground, it probably isn't much better. He is someone who NEEDS his size/reach.

    Tim Sylvia(KO)
    James Irvin(brutal KO)
    Chris Leben(sub)
    Aaron Riley(KO, hopefully it's a kick like he had in the last Bushido he fought in)

    Don't really know anything about the other fighters that are fighting on that night. I want to see the Goulet vs Hieron fight from the last UFN after reading the story about how bloody it was.

    silva.. because he survived with aleksander who is much bigger than him. He actually did decent, and mounted aleksander and almost choked him from the back at one point.

    Irvin.. Bonnar is good but irvin is a monster standing up.. and he has good wrestling.

    Rivera.. His standup is more advanced than leben's. I have no clue while youre all pikcing leben

    Riley.. because i know nothing about fisher.

    Goulet.. his ground game is very strong. And ludwig has been going downhill.

    Fickett.. I wasn't impressed with josh's ground game at all on TUF

    Guillard.. I dont know anything about neer

    Von Flue.. He has a good reach advantage

    I'm picking leben because he has a solid chin and I don't see Rivera knocking him out if Cote couldn't. Rivera really doesn't have a ground game either he got sub'd quick by Lee Murray and once Franklin brought it to the ground it ended pretty quick. Leben showed he has something when he submitted Dewees.

    Leben has a hard head and strong punches

    i think that is bad news for Rivera
