Why is Hughes still fighting? Hopes he loses, badly.
Someone has to root for Maia, so I will. Scientific Jits FTW.
Anderson "The Spider" Silva vs Demian Maia - Middleweight Title Fight.
Actually this is pretty exciting because Maia's Jiu Jitsu is beyond awesome and he's capable of submitting anyone, even Silva.
However i think first round KO and some more comedy showboating is more likely.
BJ "The Prodigy" Penn vs Frankie "The Answer" Edgar - Lightweight Title Fight.
Boooring!! BJ's too good at Lightweight but not big enough to really challenge GSP at Welterweight. He'll dismantle Edgar standing up without even having to resort to using his awesome ground game. I wanna see BJ stop boxing everyone and start submitting opponents with Gogo's and flying armbars.
Matt Hughes vs Renzo Gracie. Douchebag wins.
Terry Etim vs Rafael Dos Anjos
Kendall "Da Spyder" Grove vs Mark "The Filipino Wrecking Machine" Munoz
Paul "Relentless" Taylor vs John "Guns" Gunderson
Nick "Slick" Osipczak vs Rick "The Horror" Story
Paul "Tellys" Kelly vs Matt Veach
The main difference though is that Anderson is more than capable of beating anyone in the LHW division.

And possibly the HW division as well.

He has walked around at 215ish I think.
One arguement against this is he has always fought being big for his class, so he would not be used to fighting larger opponents. Aside from the 250 guys I dont know.
None the matter, he is hard to bet against.
GSP seems more visible in the pfp because he is truly superior in a thickly talented class.
There is talent in Andersons class, but they are nowhere near his level IMO, so it has been awhile since we have seen him overcome difficulty and have to work hard.
This fact doesnt help his abilities appraisal but in reality it should double it. IMO. nutride over.
All simply superfluous hypothetical fantasy of course.
It is a predictable card...but it also has big names. You got huges,penn and silva on one card which I think is cool. The wins may be predictable but theres always a chance.Really Good card considering 111 just happened.
These easy-ass picks should redeem me from the last one where I picked Mir.
