Wasn't it attributed to him having staff infection?
I'll make one when I can find one I like.

Are all those fights confirmed? I can't seem to find any hard evidence of Loiseau vs. Franklin anywhere.

Should be a good card. Lets see if it changes at all.

Anyone going to make picks? I'll start us off.
- Chuck Liddell vs Randy Couture
It breaks my heart to say this, as I'm just about the biggest Randy Couture fan you will find, but I think he's lost it. Yes, he won his last fight against Van Arsdale, but while he tried to close the distance he took some big punches from a guy who has at best mediocre striking skills. I see Chuck catching him again early.

- Paul Buentello vs Gilbert Aldana
I've never seen Aldana fight but from what I've heard he is a wild man who comes out throwing vicious bombs and always seems to eventually land some bone crushing "lucky punch". Buentello will look to brawl with him, so this too should be an early knockout. Based on the experience factor though, both for MMA in general and also in the UFC, I'm going to go with The Headhunter.

- Babalu vs Mike Van Arsdale
In his last fight against Couture it looked like Van Arsdale's solid wrestling base and intense strength allowed him to stay out of submission trouble early. Once he gassed in the third round though, Randy got the "gator roll". Babalu is undoubtedly slicker than Randy, but I see him fighting off his back virtually this whole fight. I think he'll catch Van Arsdale eventually though.

- Justin Eilers vs Brandon Vera
Eilers looked like a huge man in his fights at Heavyweight. Vera, on the other hand, looked incredibly skinny and small. I think that Eilers is going to overpower him in the clinch and do some real damage there, just like he did to Mike Kyle.

- Brandon Lee Hinkle vs Jeff Monson
Hinkle seems to have impressed people with a gruesome beating of Boston Cop and Kimbo Slice destroyer Shawn Gannon. He dominated, but didn't show any phenom like skills, just a matchup against a guy who had absolutely no position being in the big show yet. His record shows a string of cans with the biggest win I spot being Jorge Rivera, a solid middleweight, but definitely not someone to judge Heavyweight credentials on. Monson, on the other hand is a world class grappler. He hasn't had incredible success in MMA, but he is experienced. I see him getting tge takedown and eventually getting a sub later in the fight.

- Rich (not Rick) Franklin vs David Loiseau
Is this fight confirmed? I'm not sure. Regardless, I have to go with Franklin here. I think Loiseau is a stud, and incredibly exciting, but Rich can match him in the stand up and if he feels like it probably finish him on the ground. The Crow is going to be worried about the take down whereas Rich can just focus on his stand up. Eventually I think he'll take it to the ground though and finish Loisea there, though it won't be easy.

- Frank Mir vs Pe De Pano Marcio Cruz
What everyone wants to see here is an incredible grappling battle. What I want to see is for Frank Mir to get a limb destroyed in a submission. What's going to happen is Mir not being stupid and using superior strength, wrestling ability, and stand up to keep things on the feet and tee off on Pe De Pano.

- Mike Whitehead vs Jardine
Whitehead looked AWFUL on TUF but he has a reputation for being a tough guy. I think he'll get his head together and execute this time around. It's a hard right to pick though.
Whitehead by TKO Rd 2
- Sakara vs Sinosic
Sakara looked very impressive in his last fight against Faircloth before getting kicked in the balls. Sinosic was doing well in the stand up against Forrest, but I think that was just a question of Forrest having his usual height advantage nullified. I see Sakara getting inside and exploding with big shots there. He doesn't seem to have knockout power, but then again, Sinosic doesn't appear to have much of a chin.

Franklin and The Crow is th only fight not confirmed yet.
Posted On:12/16/2005 3:26pm
I've been looking foward to Franklin vs. Loiseau for a long time. Hopefully this one stays a stand- up match cause this has the makings to be an all time great stand up war. I would give the edge to Franklin but don't count Loiseau out, I could definitely see him KO'ing Rich.

So why did you post here?!

Isn't Loiseau the guy who just demolishes people with his elbows? I really like this fighter and I really like his training partner from Canda St. Pierre.
They are both incredible athletes and I think they have the capability to become top competitors in the MMA world.
When is the date for this UFC? I'd like to order it :)
