Anderson Silva vs Chael Sonnen.
Sonnen is getting KTFO.
Matt Hughes vs Ricardo Almeida.
Clay Guida vs Rafael Dos Anjos
Roy Nelson vs Junior Dos Santos.
This is potentially the fight of the night, Nelson's goy heavy hands and is very dangerous on the ground. Santos is a monster though, Im expecting another knockout.
I'm hoping to see some ground 'n' pound, especially from Hughes. Y'know, Hughes vs. Gracie style.
But Almeida is one heck of a fighter: 3rd degree BB in BJJ + boxing and wrestling. He's gonna give Hughes a run for his money.

UFC in Oakland and the card is Diaz free? Oh the humanity!
Glad they gave Rodney Wallace another shot despite going 0-2 so far in the UFC. Haven't seen his fights but heard both decisions were close.
Here is why I am cheering for Rodney.

Fun fact: I saw a Diaz brother in the Whole Foods on Telegraph Ave once.
Probably running out to buy tofu for Shields.
