If I recall Koscheck vs Alves correctly, Kos ate a ton of devastating leg kicks before trying to takes Alves down. Hopefully he sticks to his strengths this time.

Koscheck VS Daley
I think Koscheck will win by submission or ground and pound. He's far too good of a wrestler for Daley to prevent the takedown(if he chooses to go for it) and I think is a good enough striker to defend himself against Daley's power. He did well in the exchanges against Johnson(I'd say it was about even),withstood everything Alves hit him with and I don't think Daley will be able to attack the legs as Alves did.
I am really not a nut-hugger though I have to appreciate his style a lot for obvious reasons, but Machida won the previous fight 3/5 rounds IMO though I could see scoring it 3/5 the other way as two of the rounds were very close. Regardless, either way, anyone who thinks it was a travesty needs to (in addition to rewatching it on mute) remember that while Shogun did indeed look better by the end and probably would've won if it was an unlimited time fight, judging is about how many rounds you win.
Edit: come to think of it, not that it'd work with ppvs, but I'd like a special no-time-limit, someone-must-be-finished ruleset for this fight.

Silva might actually fight his opponents then.....at some point when he is tired and wants to go home.

Lyoto 'The Dragon' Machida vs Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua - Light Heavyweight
I cant decide, I want Rua to win but ive got a feeling Machida is gonna knock him out. **** it, I'm going with Rua.
Josh 'Kos' Koscheck vs Paul 'Semtex' Daley
Daley to be taken down like 50 times then to win by typical brutal knockout.
Kevin 'Kimbo Slice' Ferguson vs Matt Mitrione
Seriously? What is this Crap?! who wants to see this?
What's the point in 'winning' the Ultimate fighter if even the guys who get their asses kicked get contracts?
Patrick 'The Predator' Cote vs Alan 'The Talent' Belcher
Rua to beat Machida: by way of Machida having no defence to hooks and leg kicks
Daley to beat Koschek: by way of Kos being a fucking idiot and standing

Shogun v Machida
I thought Shogun should have had him the last fight. I don't think he'll make the mistake of letting it go to a decision again. Then again, if he ups the aggression he could easily end up having his sh!t ruined by Machida. I just want Shogun to win.
Joshcheck v Daley
Maybe I just haven't been paying attention, but a lot of the Brits seem to be lacking a ground game, or at least some defense against it.
Mexicutioner v Corvin
How can you bet against a name like that?
Alves has much better takedown defence than Daley. Shields already showed how Daley should be fought.

Its good quality wrestling instruction thats much harder to get in the UK.
(Saying that though watch out for John Hathaway at UFC 114, the guy has GREAT Wrestling.)
Still think Daley will do it though, the guys a monster.
