        Bummed as hell because this is the first UFC in Michigan since 96 and I don't have tickets. Ah well, guess I'm watching in a restaurant again.

            Machida is a freaking horrible style matchup for Rampage. Machida via TKO in round 2.

              Quinton Jackson vs Lyoto Machida My brain is telling my Machida is gonna win this but i've got a funny feeling Rampage is going to cause an upset.

              Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn.

                I just cant see Machida losing, and I have to root for J-Lau.

                I'm surprised Dana brought Karo back...I thought he had said he was done with him after the last fiasco?

                  Isn't Hallman the guy who holds two submission wins over Matt Hughes? I'm picking him over Karo, just because of the problem's "The Heat" has with mental focus. Would be great to see Parisyan return to form, though.

                  Machida over Rampage...QJ's at his best when guys want to stand and bang, he has trouble with people darting around throwing kicks (see Forrest and Jardine fights). And what does Machida do? Yep.

                  Matt Hughes over BJ Penn. In his last two fights, Matt STOPPED Renzo Gracie and the Big Dog. In Penn's last two fights, he got beat up by the Situation.

                  Boetsch. Because BOETSCH!

                    Honestly, I think Sotiropoulos will beat Lauzon, but I really, really want J-Lau to win.

                      My prediction is that Machida and Rampage just circle around eachother for three rounds.

                        I really hope Rampage has a good camp coming into this fight, because I think his choice of the Wolfs Lair was a major error last time as there just isn't the same calibre of sparring partners and tactical/ strategic coaching in the Wolfslair as at Greg Jackson's gym. Does anyone know if he's still at the Wolfslair?

                          Pretty sure he is, as per this article- http://www.sherdog.com/news/articles...air-Pack-14363

                          Subsequent reports from leading MMA news sources in the United Kingdom confirmed the former champion had parted ways with manager and trainer Juanito Ibarra and signed a three-year contract with The Wolfslair Academy in Widnes.
                          Article is dated from September of '08, so unless he broke his contract, he's still with them until next year.

                            Quinton Jackson vs Lyoto Machida: Machida will get the KO if Rampage comes at him, or pick him apart if he hangs back.
                            Matt Hughes vs BJ Penn: Based off his last few fights, Hughes is still a serious threat.
                            George Sotiropoulos vs Joe Lauzon: Pretty much a tossup. Picked George because everyone always picks Lauzon on this site.
                            Matt Brown vs Brian Foster: Just don't like Matt Brown.
                            Karo Parisyan vs Dennis Hallman: Just like Karo. Hope he's turned things around.
                            Nik Lentz vs Tyson Griffin: I love the way Griffin fights. He never slows down.

                              If I did have to pick a winner, though, it would have to be Rampage.

                              My reason is that boxing is better than karate.
