    UFC 56 is Saturday night, who are you guys picking to win?

    - Matt Hughes vs Joe Riggs - Riggs by cut stoppage
    - Rich Franklin vs Nate Quarry - Franklin by KO
    - Jeremy Horn vs Trevor Prangley - Horn by sub
    - Sam Hoger vs Jeff Newton - Newton hopefully by KO
    - Sean Sherk vs Georges St.Pierre - I think this one is a total coin flip. no idea who's gonna win

    why not? The guy has some serious power, if he can stop a takedown by Hughes or 2 he has the ability to stop the fight. I like Hughes and all, I just want to see a new champ haha. Fight of the night is going to be either GSP/Sherk or Horn/Prangley

    I predict Joe Rogan will say "He's Rocked!!" at least 40 times, and have to pull the mic away from at least one fighter desiring to thank his sponsors.


    As for the fights.

    Hughes, Franklin, Horn, Hoger, and Sherk (cause 'Muscle Shark' is a cool ass name)

    It's not as much that I'm a huge hughes fan, it's more that i'm not a riggs fan at all.

    I could be wrong though of course. Afterall, just a few nights ago I predicted diez against diego, but boy was I wrong there as Rommel will point out :)

    I'm basically going with all the obvious picks. Is it wrong that I'm rooting for Hogar, though? :hs:

    I'm not going to really disagree with you as I'm not familiar with Riggs. Maybe he will destroy Hughes, but I just can't really imagine it.
