Great card. I'll be pulling for;



Diaz over Henderson.
Penn over McDonald.
Shogun over Gustafsson.




And I love watching Siver fight. He has some dope spinning back kicks.

Well, the UFC owns Strikeforce, so I don't see a real problem with them bringing in Rousey as the UFC Women's champ... considering there is no UFC Women's division.


I don't see the women's division lasting anyways. There simply aren't enough elite and attractive women in the sport... and the truth is, not enough people want to watch two ugly girls fight.


I could see Rousey taking out a few opponents, and then the hype will die, and the UFC will run out of worthy opponents. I hope the division stays, because I don't mind women's MMA personally.

I really like Ricci, I hope and think he will win. The UFC has made it obvious at certain points that they want Ricci to win.

He's by far the best fighter on the show and Colton isn't really that good of a fighter. Outside of having a decent wrestling base, he doesn't have much else. His BJJ was average and his striking was bad.
I think they clearly want Ricci to win too. I can't blame them either. I'd rather have more civilized (and still very talented) fighters representing the sport than a lot of the meatheads that you see. This season has been edited heavily to make the drunken idiots on the show look like total fools.

Benson Henderson vs. Nate Diaz
Rory MacDonald vs. BJ Penn
Alexander Gustafsson vs. Mauricio Rua
Mike Swick vs. Matt Brown
Jeremy Stephens vs. Yves Edwards (Holy shit) I want Yves to win but Jeremy Stephens is rigged tough dude with a better chin.
Mike Easton vs. Raphael Assuncao
Ramsey Nijem vs. Joe Proctor
Daron Cruickshank vs. Henry Martinez
Dennis Siver vs. Nam Phan

This is one of the better UFC cards in awhile alot of even matchups.

I want Bendo to win, but I think Nate will pull out a decision.
I want Gus to win (since Bones/Shogun already happened) and I give a slight edge to Gus. Shogun is too dangerous to count out of any fight.
I want Penn to win, but I think Rory will take it. I'm hoping for some Penn magic here. I like Rory, too, but he won't fight GSP.
Swick over Brown. Never thought Brown was all that good.

side note: has it really been such a shitty year for MMA that we don't even make threads anymore for big events? okay, okay... stupid question.
