My picks;

Silva vs Jackson - Silva by TKO round 2

Nog vs Mir - Nog via Rear Naked Choke Round 2

Forrest vs Evans - Forrest via split decision

Wouldn't really say that Nog/Mir is for the belt, it's only the interim belt. We all know who the real champ is, and will be when it's all said & done.

I wish Lidell was fighitng tonite, it'd make that card all the sweeter. Or even GSP or whatshisname(MJ of mma?).

These fights are real close to call at least.

I got Wandy, Evans, and Nog for the big fights of the night. Looking at the card at first I was pretty excited because it seemed like a stacked card, but I thought about it and it really isn't that great anymore to me. Most people are thinking Mir/Nog will be a lopsided fight, early in the year who would've called Evans/Griffin main event worthy? Wandy/Rampage should be a good fight, but Wandy is a shadow of his former self and I don't think we can really know what to expect out of Rampage.

Not saying its a bad card, it's a really solid card but I don't think it's as great as I first thought it to be.

Nog is pretty much as close to a lock as you can get.
My gut feeling says Rashad over Griffin in a decision.
Rampage should be able to handle Silva.

I have the exact thing but I got Nog with the unanimous dec. Mir's strength will last the distance.

Silva over Rampage with a vicious knee to the skull
Griffin as long as it goes past the first round
Nog over Mir

Those aren't predictions, they're facts waiting to unfold

Default Re: UFC 92 Thread: Take your picks!!!

Evans over Forest (don't know why, gut feeling I guess)
Nogueria over Mir

The Rampage-Wand fight is tough to call for me. I know that Wand has had Page's number in the past but when Page is motivated its hard to count him out and Wand isn't as good as he once was.

Anyways, I guess I'll go with Page but it is 50-50 for me. Might also be a homer pick as well as Page is my second favourite fighter after GSP.

Kongo dominated that fight. That was some relentless GnP and I thought the fight would've been stopped earlier than it was.

It was pretty funny to see Kongo give the knee in the balls after he got kneed. You could tell he was pissed off and it looked like he was sending a message there.

Wand-Page is coming up next.

Damn, Page knocked Silva the **** out. Silva was out before he hit the mat.

Two dominant performances from Rampage and Kongo's camp. These two looked very good tonight.

So far I am 1-1 on my predictions of the three big fights (I also predicted Kongo would win but I don't think I posted that on here).
