    Those picks are looking damn good. I think I might pick Rothwell to upset Arlovski, and Fedor to finish Timmy earlier.

    Is our bet on for Sat night? Silva/Irvin, 50/212, I've got Silva?

    Yes sir. And I have a feeling Rothwell might pull the upset as well, If he does it would put him in the top 10. You just never know if vagina Arlovski is gonna show up.

    Yeah, I think Arlovski needs to see a sports psych like GSP did. His head hasn't been on straight since Sylvia 2, and he didn't even get brutally KOed or anything, just dropped and ate a few arm punches afterward. Now he grows a huge beard to protect his chin. He might as well fight Criss Angel because he's been Mind Freaked. Damn, I'm bombing real bad.

    He needs his body hair back. Ever since he started waxing his balls have left him.

    I have this weird feeling about this one. I had a weird feeling before CC-GG and Wand-Hendo too, but picked the typical way. This time I'm going against the grain or flipping last minute like usual.

    RED = WINNER


    Hominick vs Young

    Belfort vs Martin (I like Belfort with an easy victory. I hope Martin gets punished for at least a little while though, bcuz I cant stand the guy.

    Aleks vs Buentello (sucks that its off)

    Levens vs Lazama (think it'll be a good fight but I give the slight edge to Lazama)

    Pyle vs Ambrose ( A shot in the dark, Ambrose by triangle)

    Lil Nog vs Dewees (I think Nog wins this one with a quick SUB)

    Lindland vs Negao (Lindland on the experience and how well rounded he is)

    Babalu vs Whitehead (Too much BJJ for him. Ol' Ron by SUB)

    Barnett vs Rizzo (Pedro is one my fav. old school fighters and I still think he's topnotch. I know he beat Barnett the first time, but I think Barnett takes this time due to 2 things: his conditioning wont SUCK this time and his standup will be way better. )

    Arlovski vs Rothwell (I think Arlovski will win and if a gun was pointed at my head, Id pick Andre all freakin day. However, I do not like him and I detest the way he fights. If he likes running so much, then he should quit fighting a be a sprinter or something. Just on hope alone, I'll take Rothwell by knockout. Maybe Arlovski will trip and actually put himself close enough to an opponent to actually be hit)

    Fedor vs Sylvia (As yes, the time has finallly come. Tim Sylvia is overrated and my LEAST favorite fighter of alltime. Before I get into my rant, I will say that Tim is a good, solid fighter with some serious skill. Im not in the group that thinks he's the worst fighter thats alive, but I dont think he's anywhere near the top heavyweights in the world either. Now, to the fight, I like Fedor via DEATH. Fedor, to me, is the best fighter that ever lived and the M.Jordan of MMA. I would be happy to see him fight anybody, but the fact that he's fighting the FatassIAC or wateva, makes it that much sweeter. I know Tim will stay on the outside and throw his straight punches and coverup, which is what he should do. I just think that eventually Fedor will rock him a little and we all know how Fedor finishes. He finishes like a damn starved lion on a bleeding 3 legged bison. If Fedor cant ever get on the inside and hurt him, I think Fedor will take him down and finish him. Tim's takedown defense is solid, but when you're trying to protect yourself from that caliber striking and you're opponent is one of the best judo fighters in MMA, I think it goes to ground if that's where Fedor wants it.
    In summary, it is a fight so anything can happen. I will just say that I dont think Fedor will lose regardless of what happens. He's has an insane ability to recover and to adapt to all sitiuations. He transitions from one fighting style to the next and puts it all together better than anyone ever has. Say goodnite Mr. Sylvia!!!!!!!!!! Fedor's hungry!!!

    Tonight from 8pm-9pm(Im in SC), you get to see an hour of free fights, and then at 8:30(might as well wait til 9), you can order the PPV event that Fedor will be headlining. He and Sylvia's fight will be the main event, so depending on how the night goes, it could be late before he gets to kill Tim. I would guess around 11, but who knows?

    I would like to see Arlovski win. He was one of the better HW's in the old days. UFC will be hating themselves if he starts kicking ass again. It will take a miracle for Tim Silvia to win his fight. Anything can happen though. Babalou will win his fight. Overall, the fights look pretty good. Affliction Banned will be alot better than the UFC tonight. Gotta give them credit for that.

    AWESOME event I thought. I was real happy to see Arlovski get back to his old self. At the end the of the second round the threw some awesome knee kicks I thought were going to end it, overall very explosive. The fight with Lindland went on longer than I expected and was interesting to watch. Babalou was very controlling and impressive.

    I love to watch Fedor fight, and part of me was sad this lasted only 36 seconds, but at the same time I am glad it will help shut up all the nay sayers.

    Damn, I have Downs. Awesome performance by Fedor. So hes back to #1 P4P.

    Alrovski really looked great and seems to have that killer instinct back. Gotta love the guy when he's fighting up to his potential. Rothwell can really take a punch.

    Nice KO for Barnett, but I didn't think he looked that great.

    I missed the free undercard fights, but it looked like Belfort had an impressive KO.

    Something seemed off with the production. It didn't seem to generate excitement or hype. Also, they need to work on their ring design because guys were falling out too often. Glazer needs to chill. He goes way overboard. Overall, the last 3 fights really made that an exciting night and I hope they did well enough to put on another one.

    No. The Emelianenko's and Sergei used to train together at RTT, but Arlovski has never trained with RD, that I know of.

    The affliction website has him listed as a member of red devil. Could be a typo, btw Alex, I owe you 50 big ones.
