As for the others I have no idea.
I wouldn't bet money on this fight (for Edgar to win). But it was more of a 'Edgar MADE BJ Penn look bad in that fight' then BJ simply fighting bad. Edgar controlled the pace of that fight for 5 rounds.

Didn't you hear? Toney is gonna knock him out from the bottom? Also I forgot one fight prediction, Florian by, you guessed it, sub (RNC judging by his last three wins).

yeah, that was what I was thinking when I was watching it. Penn this time.
I was amused by the Subway reference but then I remember Toney as MW and his sacrifice to make weight. He was missing his "Whopper" - well, he's eating a few of 'em since.
Well, for a Fat Boy (ahem), he still retains surprisingly elusive skills with subtle Head Feints and is always in a position to strike. I can't believe that Randy is dumb enough to try to outbox him so it'll be a leg shoot for Takedown as per Gene Lebell v Milo Savage all those years ago. Unless Lights Out catches him with a knee as he's coming in.
Hmm. The Natural. The Great Reg Gutteridge (UK premier Boxing commentator) was quoted as saying that a wrestler would beat a boxer - his cousin was Jackie Pallo so that's good enough for me. And Mr Lebell. :toothy10:
Randy Couture - James Toney
I never thought Gabe Ruediger would get another shot at the UFC, but being that he's on a six-fight winning streak I guess he's got his head in the game now. Even if he wins, though, I'll always remember him as the fat guy who wallowed naked in a puddle of his own tears trying to cut weight for TUF.
Really good there. You know that Ruediger came from a surgery and I believe some kind of bacterial infection trying to cut for that fight, right? He didn't go around using it as an excuse and just took the criticism like a man.

So, it's looking more like a case of Toney playing up the "I'm just going to box" angle while really doing the full training. Anyone know anything on this?
Penn via submission or TKO(whichever he feels like, see BJ V Pulver 2)
Couture via easy submission
Miranda via TKO
Kflo via UD
Davis via KO (this is the only one I really care about)
