    Is it sad that I get more nervous when Wand fights than when I do?

    I will throw mine in

    Hardonk by KO rd2
    Chonnen by sub rd 1
    Hamill by boring u.decision
    Okami TKO rd 2
    Dollaway via sub rd 1
    Kongo via tko rd 2
    Silva via TKO rd 3
    Nog TKO rd 2 (early)
    Evans via TKO rd 3

    I am torn on the FOrrest/Rashad fight. My feeling is that if Evans can be explosive early he will win within the first 3 rounds. However, if it goes past that, Forrest will wear him down

    I'll man up and post my predictions

    Mir over Nng, but for me it's a coin toss. I like them both and just not sure. I haven't seen their most recent fight for either.

    Silva over Jackson

    Rashad over Griffin

    and the rest I don't care

    If you are talking about Silva and Jackson then look above. I picked Silva. If you are referring to someone else then no I haven't seen them fight or do not realize it.

    -Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira by Sub (please make it happen)
    -Forrest Griffin by DEC
    -Wanderlei Silva by KO
    -Mustapha by DEC
    -C.B. Dollaway by DEC
    -Yushin Okami by DEC
    -Matt Hamill by DEC
    -Ryo Chonan by DEC
    -Pat Barry by KO
    -Antoni Hardonk by TKO

    I haven't done one of these in a long time. Hopefully I'll be lucky here.

    Rodja, I get nervous when Wandy fights, too...and I feel the same way when Rampage fights. I really like both guys, but it should be a great fight.

    Some of you guys are missing the point of this thread. It's contest with a point system to see who guesses the outcomes the best.

    Could somebody who usually participates in these throw up the rules? I never partake, so I can't remember he exact ins and outs of the point system.

    Winner is 2 points, method of victory is 1 point, tiebreaker is time for main event (I assume it's Nog/Mir).

    EDIT: Main event is Forrest/Rashad. Time of victory is tiebreaker.

    Jackson over Silva
    Evans over Griffin
    Nog over Mir

    I know they rn't the sexiest picks but I sure hope Rampage knocks out Silva. Hoepfully Rampage can end it with knees because I can't stand Silva. Evans impresses me everytime I watch him. The TUF coaches match doesn't really do anything for me. I don't care who wins to much.

    Rampage by knees, you got it backwards, the only thing you missed was the axe kicks.

    I picked rashad to but if it was for money i would change my choice to a forrest by dec. BUT rashad is undefeated, didnt help koshcheck when he ran into st. pierre tho.

    Sorry, here it goes, but it seems some are still too afraid to put themselves out there.


    - Mir over Nog by submission (I'm kinda hoping 4 KO(I like both tough)
    -Rashad Evans by KO
    -Wanderlei Silva by KO
    -Kongo by TKO
    -Mike Massenzio by decision

    Preliminary Bouts:
    -Yushin Okami by decision (are you kidding me this fight will suck)
    -Matt Hamill by decision (I don't not care I like Hamill!!)
    -Ryo Chonan by decision
    -Dan Evensen by submission (this fight will most likely suck as well)
    -Antoni Hardonk by decision (possible by submission)
    Last edited by CopyCat; 12-27-2008 at 05:31 AM. Reason: eddited Mir over Nog by sub instead decision

    Main Card:
    -Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira (#2 Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Frank Mir-TKO
    -Forrest Griffin (#1 Light Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Rashad Evans (#4 Light Heavyweight in the World)*-Dec
    -Quinton Jackson (#2 Light Heavyweight in the World)* vs. Wanderlei Silva (#6 Light Heavyweight in the World)*-TKO
    -Mostapha Al Turk vs. Cheick Kongo-Dec
    -C.B. Dollaway vs. Mike Massenzio-Sub

    Preliminary Bouts:
    -Yushin Okami (#5 Middleweight in the World)* vs. Dean Lister-TKO
    -Matt Hamill vs. Reese Andy-Dec
    -Ryo Chonan vs. Brad Blackburn-TKO
    -Pat Barry vs. Dan Evensen-KO
    -Antoni Hardonk vs. Mike Wessel-Dec

    A couple of these picks I had to go with my gut instead of my heart. My upset pick (and the line for him is great) is Al-Turk to defeat Kongo. Kongo has no ground game and Al-Turk is a solid GnP'er.

    FYI, Pat Barry is a vicious, technical kickboxer and Evensen is a brawler. Doesn't look good for Evensen. Barry is someone to watch out for in a few years if he can adapt the ground game. He's very athletic, so he has potential.

    Silva is vicious, but he is the definition of a warrior. People love him b/c he is the epitome of why many fans watch MMA--to see courage in action. You'll never see Wandy back down from one challenge for one second. When Mirko demolished his eye, Wand kept the all-out attack going. If you've read A Fighter's Heart by Sam Sheridan you'll see that Wandy fits Sheridan's definition perfectly.

    Before his string of failures he seemed untouchable. Beyond that, he is supposed to be a great human being. Why do you think he is so dedicated to helping Forrest train. After he fought Liddell he was seen offering any help needed to Anderson and Machida.

    Wandy has a great attitude, but Brazilians don't take trash talk well. Rampage talks a lot of trash, though he does it jokingly. Wandy doesn't get his sense of humor.

    How does he come off as ignorant? He has a hard time with the language and there is a bit of a cultural barrier, but everyone always says that he is one of the most kind, gracious, and courageous fighters. I highly doubt than any other non-HW would take on Mark Hunt on 4 days notice.

    it's not that he can't speak english, it's the way he says it, most fighters talk a gang of crap but come off as being hungry for the fight, it just seems when he says it that he think's he's gods gift to MMA, which isn't the case or he wouldn't have a 2-3 record in his last 5 fights, his days are past him and maybe he is a good guy but in this fight i'm rooting against him
