Liddell - Silva -- (I picked Silva.) I kept wondering about the leg kicks too. It think that could have turned the fight for Silva. He's great in the clinch but you could tell he was being very wary about Liddell counter punching while backing up. Also, I think the cage threw him off a little. On a few occasions he drifted back toward the cage and let Liddell come in on him. That might have worked on the ropes, but it seemed like the cage limited Silva's mobility somewhat when he tried to explode on Liddell at close range.
Guillard - Clementi -- I got this one wrong too. I thought Guillard would pull off a LnP victory, but I guess the combined factors of being too emotionally involved and sucking on the ground screwed this one up. Can't say I'm unhappy about the result.
Sokoudju - Machida -- Wrong again. However, I knew picking Sokoudju was a shot in the dark--I figured either round one KO or decision for Machida. Ooops. He really really needs to get a ground game. He seems like a natural athlete and I'd guess he could pick it up pretty quick... so why didn't he already?Anyone who has the power to make you believe absurdities has the power to make you commit injustices.

I think Soko's has a "be on top" ground game, very wrestling / Judo orientated.
With his Judo, wrestling and strength I don't think he expected to be fighting off his back.
Machida impresses me a lot.

This impressed me, is Hughes calling for help?. I picked Hughes...
