    Picks (in bold):

    Heavyweight Tournament semifinals
    Sergei Kharitonov vs. Josh Barnett
    Antonio Silva vs. Daniel Cormier

    Main Card
    Muhammed Lawal vs. Roger Gracie
    Ronaldo Souza vs. Luke Rockhold

    Disclaimer: Not all picks made with any real thought or foreknowledge.

    Also, one must wonder, when a Gracie is given a name as common as Roger, is still pronounced Hoger? Seriously, I've kinda lost touch with the Gracies, and have never heard his name said out loud.

    Yeah, that Portuguese weird "r" is still in effect. At the front of a word/name, it pretty much always sounds like some type of "h".

    Silva beats Cormier, TKO 1st or 2nd. Cormier's good, but needs time to grow - they threw him at Silva too early IMO.

    Barnett beats Kharitonov by submission. Kharitonov is a very underrated fighter, but I doubt he will be able to deal with Barnett's grappling.

    Lawal has declared his intention to engage Gracie in a ground war. Gracie by submission/Lawal's overconfidence.

    Jacare because I like him.

    FWIW, I've heard his students in the UK call/refer to him with an 'r' sound.

    Really you picked Rockhold over Jacare!?!?!?

    Also, one must wonder, when a Gracie is given a name as common as Roger, is still pronounced Hoger? Seriously, I've kinda lost touch with the Gracies, and have never heard his name said out loud.
    It is pronounced HOGER but he will ask to call him Roger. Got to talk to him before and after his rematch with Jacare at the 2005 Euro Open in Lisbon.
