    I'm picking Penn over Sherk, I think Penn has turned his work ethic fully towards Cardio in the last year and has enough gas to work the entire 5 rounds if he has to. I honestly don't think it will TAKE 5 rounds, I'm calling Penn to win by submission in the 3rd. I think Sherk will try to stand and trade with BJ for the first round, after he gets rocked a few times he'll start trying to work the take downs. He'll get a takedown early in round 2 and it will be a round full of laying while BJ takes stock of Sherk's skillz, then in round 3 it's gonna be all BJ all the Time.

    I'm hoping to see both Wandy and Jardine coming out ready to bang, but I see Wandy coming out on top in that exchange. That fight will either go to a very boring decision, or have a very early and spectacular KO, depending on which version of each man comes into the ring.

    I hope Machida dominates Tito in spectacular fashion.

    Is Clementi really fighting in consecutive UFCs? Would have thought he wouldn't even be un-suspended yet.

    I'm surprised you guys are picking Machida over Tito. It's obviously going to be Tito by boring decision.

    BJ Penn Vs. Sean Sherk - Sherk. All you people going for Penn are blind. Sherk is going to out strike and out wrestle the cardio WRECK that is Penn. Sherk G&P round 3

    Wanderlei Silva Vs. Keith Jardine Keith is gona have the game plan for Silve. Perfect distance and timing with strikes are going to keep Silva off. What game plan can silva have against Keith? A lucky Houstan punch is about all he has. Jardine by descision and fight of the night.



    Tito Ortiz Vs. Lyoto Machida Lyoto is on a roll. Tito is my bitch. Machida by decision

    E-van: You on MMAplayground? I'll take a wager with you on the Penn fight, I say Penn by round 3 sub, you say Sherk by R3 GnP?

    Giving Sherk until the third round may be too generous. BJ usually finds his domination rythym in the second round. Plus Sherk won't be roided up this time.

    LOL at Jardine beating Silva.

    Tito will go out with a bang, which for him means being extra boring, but he'll probably win anyway.


    edit: E-van: You're way off your rocker. If this were the Penn that fought Hughes at UFC 63 and if Sherk were still on steroids I would agree with you.

    I want Sherk to win. Just because BJ Penn fans are the most annoying fans in the world. "He's never last a first round!" "He was won the GSP fight he did he did he did!" The Boy from Hilo will probaly take it, but I'll be praying for another "rib injury" a la the second fight with Hughes.

    And when did Clementi get suspended?!?
