    That card is looking good so far. Swick is dangerous, that's a good match-up. Can't wait to see McFedries, one of the most exciting fighters in the world. That guy has thunder in his hands.

    Yeah, I'm psyched about that event. Thiago Tavares is a sick fighter--stick standup and ground game. I need to watch his fight vs. Griffin again. 155 consistently produces the best fights.

    I hope he smashes Wiman. Anyone who calls himself "Handsome" deserves to get battered.

    Here's the rest of the card:
    * Josh Burkman vs. Mike Swick
    * Patrick Côté vs. Drew McFedries
    * Nate Diaz vs. Alvin Robinson
    * Gray Maynard vs. Dennis Siver
    * Cole Miller vs. Jeremy Stephens
    * Thiago Tavares vs. Michihiro Omigawa
    * Corey Hill vs. Joe Veres
    * Alberto Crane vs. Kurt Pellegrino
    * Justin Buchholz vs. Matt Wiman
    Top to bottom it is a great card.

    Swick should be a beast at 170.

    Cote vs. McFredries = two sluggers, though Cote might try to take it to the ground. Cote looks much better since he started training with my Boston brethren.

    Diaz vs. Robinson = ground war.

    Maynard will probably kill Siver. Maynard has a huge future. He may be the best guy from that season of TUF. He overtrained.

    Stephens put up a good fight vs. Din Thomas. Should be a war vs. Miller.

    Tavares vs. anyone is worth watching.

    Corey Hill ?????????? We'll see what he's learned.

    Crane vs. Pelligrino will be a battle of BJJ masters.

    Hopefully Vika's boy will maul Wiman.

    That's right. You have to admit Wiman's reaction to Cole Miller turning into a queer when getting drunk was priceless.

    swick/burkman could be a FOY candidate. At 170 Swick could be trouble for a lot of the guys there, explosive KO power and solid ground game

    GSP would beat the p*ss out of Swick. Swick is a good striker, but he is nowhere near the level of GSP. Also, he trains with 2 of the best WW in the UFC, which will really limit his options for top-tier fights

    Swick has potential at 170, and I can also see GSP (after getting the belt back) moving to 185, he is huge at 170

    Huge at 170, but he would be avg at 185, unless he took about 8-10 months off to bulk up.

    Nowhere near the level of GSP in striking or overall? Overall, not close. Striking, maybe close. I think GSP's striking is over-rated personally.

    There are very few WW's with above-average striking and GSP has the most dynamic and explosive striking in the WW class (assuming he doesn't slip on water).

    GSP would make 185 very interesting. GSP vs Hendo/Anderson=dream matches. Hendo vs Anderson is hard to beat, can't believe it's gonna happen.

    well i dont know about GSP's striking (hes got good striking) if he got knocked out by a pretty much JJ fighter and lost his belt, as for swick well frist 2 fights in the octagon under a minute and both knockouts , says enough for me he got good stand up.

    BJ made GSP look like Hughes in the standup. He owned him. I mean it is BJ, but I wouldn't expect a good striker to get destroyed that badly. Maybe I should re-watch that one though.

    GSP-Swick = Swickatine victory, well okay no.

    well look where he got all his recognition.....Matt Hughes? not really a good fighter to strike back. He does put together some nice combos.

    I have to agree with an earlier post that GSP's standup is overrated, you could see it in the BJ fight, and Serra exposed some issues as well. As an overall fighter, GSP is light years ahead of Swick, but Swick had KO power at 185 and will be even more devastating @ 170 IMO. I think Burkman is solid, but I think Swick will KO him.

    In terms of @ 185, GSP could be very dangerous based on skill and speed. Also at 185, I dont think anyone can say Silva will KO Henderson as he has never been stopped. Also, Bisping at 185 should be good for him, he will be more powerful.

    All I wanna know is why hasnt there been a WW title fight since April 7th? And when can I see a good title fight at 155, Sherk against Roger Huerta would be a monster fight, every fight that guy has had in the UFC has been the best fight on the card.
