I'll be watching at my buddy's house.

ST Pierre will win
Bisping will win
I think Lesnar will win(Mir can definately beat him though)


Forgot about Danzig - Miller-should be an exciting fight.

And

Coleman - Bonnar - should beat the hell out of each other.

Im really worried about Alves' power ... hopefully GSP plays it safe and takes him down and pounds him out.

Im picking Henderson over Bisping. Lesnar over Mir. Fitch will avenge Koshchecks loss to Paulo Thiago. And hopefully my boy "Sexyama" Akiyama destroys Belcher.

Cant waiiiit.

Tiago is used to overpowering his opponents, I dont think he will be able to do that against GSP.

I have to laugh at the previews for the fight, they keep saying that Tiago overpowered and destroyed Matt Hughes, GSP did that months and months ago.

Alves is like a bigger Penn, trying to overpower opponents in the same weight class
if GSP gets him to the ground then all should be well
still a bit weary b/c Alves can knock him out
I think Lesnar learned how to position himself so he won't get caught off guard again
wonder if Mario will be the ref for the fight

Lesnar/GSP/Henderson

Well to be fair, Alves and GSP both also fought Koshchek, and Alves dominated him much much more than GSP did.

Both fighters won a convincing 30-27 decision, but ive never seen Kos as damaged as he was after the Alves fight. Complete domination and great takedown defense.

That said I still think GSP takes it with superior wrestling. but im a bit worried he might get caught with some big shots.

.....

Also ... Lesnar will not ... I repeat will not get caught in any submission other than a leg lock, ankle lock, knee bar. Any upper-body submissions wont work because he is just too powerful. I also think he wont be as careless as last time with his donkey punches ... and cruise to a 1st or 2nd round TKO.

But .. that said ... Mir is a sneaky fuck and can always pull off the upset with a slick (or lucky) submission like last time. I just think his chances of surprising Bock like last time are much lower this time around.

Only way I see Alves winning is if he makes quick work of GSP. The deeper and longer the fight goes the more of an advantage GSP has. I hope its a great fight, but I don't see GSP losing this one. *knocks on wood*

GSP tried to outwrestle koschek, not beat him with punches.

I think he viewed at as an opportunity to hone his wrestling skills. He never really did anythiing near what he is capable of on his feet in that fight.

Alves = GSP on the feet.
GSP>>>>>>Alves wrestling
GSP>>>>>>Alves bjj.

Gsp will take him down at will and dominate on the ground.

Why doesnt that Brazilian asian guy who won the title last UFC99 and is undefeated(name please?) face GSP? Or are they not in the same weight class? Thatd be an awesome matchup.

From what Ive watched of the UFC those 2 are pretty much far and away better than anyone else in their weightclass, they should go at it.

I hope Lesnar gets fucked up.

I think you're talking about Machida and the last time he fought was UFC 98
he's 2 weight classes above GSP

GSP is gonna own Alves, Henderson is gonna pound Bisping and Brock is gonna outstrike Mir. I'm really lookin forward to see Jon Bones Jones fight.

Everybody here should watch out for Michael Bisping.

He's going to demolish Hendo tomorrow.

People don't know how much he's improved in the lsat 12-18 months.

alves has a punches chance, nothing more, Jon Fitch dominated him, stood with him, took him down and owned him, and eventually finished him, the same Jon Fitch GSP easily dismantled.

Horrible comparison saying alves is a bigger penn.... not so at all, penns bjj is a level above black belts, world class, bj loves boxing, alves is more muay thai, bj isnt particularly big for his class or strong, alves hasnt made weight 2x and is really a middleweight that walks around at 200 pounds. Bjj is better then alves at almost everything except muay thai.

alves will be destroyed barring 1st or 2nd surprise ko

bisping didnt beat matt hamill, and henderson is like hammil 10.0, unless bisping can keep it standing somehow, it will be a lay n pray scheme.

brock in the 1st round, fuck mir, one win over a staph infected, medicated Big Nog doesnt impress me

Ur just dumb lol

That said ...u better be coming over tomoro or I will beat the ever living shit out of u.

Now to ur previous post once again ... how do u see Bisping finishing the fight? He doesnt have the power or the jiu jitsu to put Hendo away. As a matter of fact, people with ridiculous power (Rampage and Wanderlei) have landed flush shots to Hendos face without ever putting him away.

Unless Bisping backpeddals the whole 15minutes and peppers Hendo with quick jabs, he wont win this fight. Decision win or big loss for Bisping on this one. He most like will land more shots but will cause much much less damage than Hendo in this fight. If that happens Hendo will continuously put him on his ass, and when Bispings keeps getting up like he usually does, Hendo will put him on his ass again...and again.

Bisping at this point has world class Jiu Jitsu.

A lot of fighters have been hyping him up a ton lately. I see a 2nd round finish.
