    I'm looking forward to this one a whole lot more than UFC 97.

    Rashad Evans Vs. Lyoto Machida - Light-Heavyweight Title Fight
    Matt Hughes Vs. Matt Serra
    James Irvin Vs. Drew McFedries
    Yushin Okami Vs. Dan Miller
    Sean Sherk Vs. Frank Edgar
    Brock Larson Vs. Chris Wilson
    Pat Barry Vs. Tim Hague
    Phillipe Nover Vs. Kyle Bradley
    Houston Alexander Vs. Andre Gusmao
    Yoshiyuki Yoshida Vs. Brandon Wolf
    Dave Kaplan Vs. George Roop

    Here's hoping Machida finishes Rashad, Hughes gets the beating he deserves and Pat Barry throws some more sick leg kicks.

    Only fight I'm really interested in Patrick Barry. That guy has a real bright future in front of him if he continues on his win streak. I feel that no one in the UFC has got leg kicks like him, and his striking overall is top notch. I, too, have fallen victim to the 'UFC doesnt have any great strikers' meme. Of course, that isnt without exception, but I feel like Barry striking is a level above most of that current lineup of fighters - and I hope he proves me right! Get Hype!!

    I'm also hoping Machida finishes Rashad. That should also be a good fight.

    I've got my money on Machida. Unless Greg Jackson puts something amazing together for Evans, which is a possibility, Greg's the man and a half. I've also got Sherk and Serra.

    I'll be nervous as hell through the whole Machida fight. Rashad seems almost like he's coming in as the underdog, which is a role that suits him extremely well. Machida could dance around and pick him apart for 4 rounds and then get KOd by a single well-timed punch because of Rashad's uranium-tipped hands.

    This is all the more worrying given the gameplans that Jackson's camp comes up with.

    I have to be honest. I haven't seen that much of Evans, but he does seem solid and explosive. Also I'm a Machida fanboy. Still it should be an epic battle of truly epic proportions.

    Rashad Evans Vs. Lyoto Machida - COuld go either way. So, this pick is really just who I'm rooting for.
    Matt Hughes Vs. Matt Serra - If Serra keeps fighting, he needs to drop to 155.
    James Irvin Vs. Drew McFedries - By freedom from pain killer addiction.
    Yushin Okami Vs. Dan Miller - Must win so he can face Anderson.
    Sean Sherk Vs. Frank Edgar - Really? I mean... really?
    Brock Larson Vs. Chris Wilson
    Pat Barry Vs. Tim Hague
    Phillipe Nover Vs. Kyle Bradley
    Houston Alexander Vs. Andre Gusmao
    Yoshiyuki Yoshida Vs. Brandon Wolf - Unless the Asian Man Curse strikes, of course.
    Dave Kaplan Vs. George Roop - lol
