Rampage vs. Hendo: Hendo via nuthuggery. Both can be really sketchy fighters in terms of how they show up. I like both, so this is a difficult decision, but I think Hendo will pull out some sort of decision against Rampage. Hendo has one of the better chins in the business, and I think if he can put Rampage in a clinch situation with his Greco-Roman skills we'll see a pained Rampage with weakened ribs. Hendo by decision.Quote:

Hammil never keeps his hands up and will get absolutely punished if he even tries to stand. Bisping by KO rd. 1.
Cro-Cop vs. Kongo: Cro Cop via decapitation from a LHK rd. 1. If Cro-Cop remembers that his hands are for punching then Kongo is pretty much fucked. Kongo is a good striker, but I'm not sure he's at the same level as Cro-Cop. I would also die if CC takes him to the ground and proceeds to submit him, since I've seen 3 year olds who wrestle better than Kongo.
Alexander vs. Sakara: Alexander. I don't know anything about Sakara, but I know Alexander just took Jardine's head off in that last fight. Sakara's record indicates he isn't much above can level, so I call Alexander by TKO rd. 3..
Silva vs. Dwarl: Silva rd. 1 by KO. Neither has rolled with anyone extremely significant, so I'm just going to go with my gut.
Davis vs. Taylor: Davis via decision. Taylor has fought absolute nobodies, and Davis has fought guys that are better than that, and won. I think Davis will rock him punching (given that he is a former boxer) or take him out on the ground. I don't see it ending until the 3 rounds are up though.
Tibau vs. Etim: Etim 2rd submission because I like his name more and know little about either.
Torres vs. Liaudin- Torres by 1st rd sub. I once had a Captain Torres as my boss. He was a nice guy. That's why I'm picking this dude. Karma man, karma.
Kotani vs. Siver: I see Kotani taking this in the 1st round. Kotani has some losses under his belt, but his fight against Thavares was pretty good iirc. His other losses come to guys like Aurelio and Huerta who are both good lightweights. Siver has lost all of his fights by submission, and subs seem to be Kotani's strength. Also, how can you argue against a guy whose association is "Rodeo Style?"
