09-15-2009, 04:08 PM
i have no faith in cro cop really even tho he looked fine against mustafa al turk but hes not good enough competition
i thought long and hard against franklin and vitor and i really have no diea but i think vitor is quick and could KO him. franklin has been rocked a lot in the last couple years and i think wandy was just to slow.

Main Card Bouts:
I'd like to see Rich never lose again only because he comes off as the nicest guy in MMA
-Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic -
Martin Kampmann (if Kampmann doesn't make an example of this guy we'll see Kampmann drop down to light weight for sure.)
-Josh Koscheck (Trigg could possibly lose his life in this match. Kos nearly killed his teammate, you think he cares about his opponent??)
Hermes Franca (really just excited for this fight in general. Not sure I'm even leaning toward HF)
-Rafaello Oliveira (9-1) vs. Nik Lentz (16-3-1) WHO??
-Rick Story (7-3)
-Jason Brilz (17-1) vs. Eliot Marshall (7-1) WHO
- Rafael Dos Anjos (11-4)
All of these are based on who I'd like to win more than who will... Rich may not come out with a W
09-15-2009, 11:00 PM
I love Rich Franklin man. Top 5 for sure. I hope hedoes win but I don't know if he has the speed and KO power. I would LOVE to see him get a KO over a guy like Belfort.
I also like to bet against Crop COp! But... I do think it would better for UFC if he won after the whole contract thing and hes a legend and superstar. I like to see new up and comers but I also like to see legends stay sharp.
09-16-2009, 11:59 AM
Indeed. I'm hoping for CroCop to come back from this boring eye jabbing UFC streak and pull a Nog, but he's had plenty of time to do that already.
If Belfort destroys Franklin it could make for a good match up against Machida or Silva depending on where he goes.
Did they ever make it clear whether the Kampman/Daley fight will be for #1 contender?
09-16-2009, 12:56 PM
I actually think Rich will win this. I think that he is a very technically sound fighter, who will frustrate the hell out of Vitor.
I cant seem to predict the CC/Dos Santos fight, could go either way IMO
I do have to say I am sort of pulling for Belfort just to add so0me new blood to 185
09-16-2009, 04:09 PM
Franklin will spoil Belfort's reurn to the octogon with a decision W
Dos Santos is going to show why training w/A.Silva,Machida , Lil/Big Nog is such a good idea . I dont even like Silva but that camp is F'n talented .
Kampmann makes Semtex eat a slice of "Welcome to the UFC mofo" humble pie a la' ground and pound .
Props to Trigg for making a run at it again but Kos will outwork him .
Tyson wins via decision - FOTN award
09-16-2009, 04:29 PM
i do like the whole new guy in 185 to have a match with silva or nate mar for the title. but i do want rich to win i hope he doesnt make it boring tho.
cro cop did look just fine tho before the eye poke he did rock him once before that.

09-16-2009, 08:50 PM
I still think Trigg should be fighting Daley and Kos vs Kampman. How would that not make sense to DW unless he wants some Ws for Kamp and Kos. Plus that just sounds like a great fight for both people. Dana must hate Trigg.
09-16-2009, 09:58 PM
well he did work against him hahaha. he might dis like him some but knows he can help put together a solid card for a return. yeah i think he wants kos to have more wins because of the early fight wqith thiago alvez and then the KO loss to paulio or whatev

hes one celeb i care about who has died. remeber red dawn? that movie was bad ass! when i was like 11 i used to play toy guns after that movie!!!
09-18-2009, 01:39 AM
I hope cro cop jumps on his old band wagon of training or something. All his appearances in the UFC have been crap. I miss the old CC. The same CC that kicked people with his freight train left leg over and over and not whatever the hell he has been doing in the UFC.

dude it was shocking. i dis like stuff like that. the fall of chuck after jardine and rashad hurt really bad. page was one thing. i knew before hand he was going to lose. then the wandy fight made me really happy but he didnt put him away. then sho gun happened....

I THINK BELFORT WILL WIN BY KNOCKOUT! I DON'T THINK HE'D COME BACK UNLESS HE WAS SERIOUSLY READY. AND REMEBER PEOPLE, THIS MAN HAS SOME OR HAD THE FASTEST HANDS I THE UFC. IF HIS HEADS IN IT AND HE CAN DO WHAT HE KNOWS HOW, FRANKLIN DOESN'T STAND A CHANCE. AND I LOVE JIM CARREY WITH MUSCLES!! LOL CRO COP LEG KICK KNOCKOUT!! KAMPMAN BY DECISION, KOSCHECK OVER TWINKLE TOES, KOSCHECK BY REAR NAKED CHOKE!! LOL POOR FRANK AND GRIFFIN OVER FRANCA, BY DECISION
09-19-2009, 03:24 AM
i doubt cro cop gets a leg kick KO. if he does its going to be punches TKO. or decision.
also vitor and cro cops body composition is nothing what it used to be. im not saying being ripped is what its about look at sokadju lol hes ripped and sucks im just saying might not be 100% cro cops body looked liek ****. fro mthe weight ins. i think hermes franka is screwed....he cut to much weight maybe and might gas.

09-20-2009, 03:45 AM
i got 6 out or 9 right. i got both main events so thats all that matters hahah.
Trigg got wrecked by KOS which made me really happy and i think trigg had no chance he was done. he should not have questioned that stoppage.
also tyson griffin did great so crisp with good footwork and leg kicks. not flayling punches like franca. good KO.
cro cop looked TINY. his legs are MUCH smaller and flabby chest. his striking was still scary but dos santos from the start looked much better. junior is just much younger and less beat up with not as much on the line way to easy to beat a much weaker and slower opponent with a lot to lose not to mention low testosterone due to age and most likley using steroids for a number of years.
rich looks like he has nothing on his punches he like leans over when throws a punch like i saw frank shamrock do. his punches werent terrible just not like a good boxer. i was hoping for a leg kick KO. vitor's speed good accuracy and power were fun to watch but not to my boy rich franklin.
that was a really fast UFC a lot of first round or early 2nd round. same with wednesdays fight night which i really enjoyed. what did you all think?
sorry im on my girls tiny ass laptop and my fingers are way to big.
09-21-2009, 12:03 PM
Kampman is dropping down to bantamweight along with Cro Cop and Rich Franklin in 2010 (not true sarcasm)
Paul Daley looks kinda solid. Get that man some Bas Rutten training and we've got some good 170 competition.
09-21-2009, 11:32 PM
kos fitch swick is a hard trio to beat to get in at a title shot. damn AKA and there 170's. oh yeah and anthony johnson(a personal fav) then you got thiago. i think paul could be very good soon. give him 3 more fights or medium comp( martin was def above medium even tho i dis like him)
speaking of franklin that made me sad i knew it was going to happen tho. whats next for him? fights loser or hendo and nate mar? or fights bisping or maia? dude look who he has had to fight latley. hendo vitor wandy. hes only had one easy fight which was matt hamill who did pretty decent but was def losing. and before that A. silva. damn tough road for rich.

saw UFC 103 live from great seats. the undercard fights were great. was really pulling for cro cop, but he just looked like he didn't even want to be in the ring. was dominated from start to finish and pretty much just gave up. franklin was outmatched. was pulling for him as well. even in his loss though, in the post fight interview the fans still stood and applauded him. just a genuine guy, hard not to like-
