I'm incredibly fired up for 79. I actually tried to get a package to go see the fight, but failed..

I'm calling:
Hughes over St. Pierre
Silva over Liddell
Sokoudjou over Machida


I can't wait for 81 too.
I want to see Lesnar get pummeled.

Ya I bought two tickets to the one in colombus where randy got the belt and they costed me 500.00 so I decided I would just stay home from now on.

Hughes by submission
Liddell by KO
Sokoudjou by KO

Lesner will get choked out, Mir is still very talented.

I'm surprised to see you think Chuck will win.
I'm even more surprised to see you say Chuck will KO him!

I say that because Regardless of Chucks Last Fight He still can throw a bomb and I think he will be more prepared for this fight than any other, also I have to go out and say that the Pride guys have not looked to good in the cage other than Rampage, Hendo and Anderson Silva.

Anything could happen, that's for sure. Just look at Matt Hammil and Bisping. Hammil got robbed!

Me personally, I don't think Chuck has it in him. I'm looking for the fight to go 3, but I think Silva is going to dominate.
I'm thinking that Chuck's done in the UFC. This may be one of his last real fights.
I don't think Silva is the future, but a man with that much hair on his shoulders is sure to be around for awhile

Here is my preliminary prediction:

GSP over Matt Hughes via TKO. GSP has great takedown defense even against a great wrestler like Hughes. I think Matt will get frustrated by GSP defending the TD and try to force himself to switch tactics. At this point, GSP will start focusing on hitting Matt and will start to connect some solid shots. I don't see GSP knocking Matt unconscious but I think the ref will have to jump in once GSP gets Hughes rocked and unable to intelligently defend himself. Might take the 3rd round before we see this.

I'm not up to speed on Wanderlei. I think Chuck knows he's had his 15 minutes of fame but will continue to train and fight to the best of his ability. He just likes to fight, he's a brawler. I don't know enough about Wanderlei to form an accurate prediction of that fight. I hope it's the fight everyone has been wishing for.

Now for Lesnar vs. Mir. Mir has beaten some big guys, he's won against Tank Abbot and Sylvia, and beaten Wes Sims twice. This guy has some great skills on the ground and in his fists. But, I think Lesnar has been training for like 2 years or something and if you have some good trainers, two years can do wonders. Lesnar has an excellent college wrestling background and that counts. He doesn't have the skills or experience that Mir has so I'm giving the fight to Mir. I think Lesnar can be a serious contender in the HW division with enough time, he's got the background and I'm sure he's got some money for training.

I reserve the right to modify these predictions as the fights draw closer. I usually make my pics the day of the fight and none of my friends will bet against me any more. However, I love how in this sport it only takes one punch! Anything can happen.

Find out who Couture is picking on these fights, he's ususally very spot on.

Honestly, I could see any of those top three fights going either way. Very competitive matchups

As for Mir/Lesnar, I actually think Lesnar is going to brutalize him. Why? Because Mir sucks and his cardio is one of the worst in the sport. He is highly overrated

BTW, another cool website for a little betting fun is www.mmaplayground.com. So far this season I am ranked #45 out of 11572 people!!!! The winner this season gets $2000, and I think I have a chance. I would be #11 except the website screwed up my picks for one event so I missed out on a bunch of points
