    i think jardine will get the win but this fight could go either way and should be very competitive. This will show if thiago is the real deal or not.

    it should be good i agree dane this should show if he is for real, he was beating the low guys no problem and losing to machida who might be the best 205er dosn't mean he was fake but this should show where he is at in the devision.

    Forrest v Anderson, good job. Someone who will force Anderson to fight. most likely a second round TKO though for Anderson. Forrest is tough but tactical im not so sure if he can cope with Anderson.

    As for Jardine v Silva. Should be good but i think Jardine is due a win a got very well get it here. If Jardine loses this fight i think Dana will still keep him around. Jardine fights are exciting.

    Jardine looked terrible against an injured Rampage and even worse against Vera. In my opinion he should have been ousted after his loss to Alexander after he made a big deal about fighting someone who he thought was not worthy. Well he wins every now and again so i guess let him keep fighting for now. Make note that his paydays are as low as anyone who has fought as much as him and rightfully so.
