    Predictions:

    -Penn (more focuesed/ training harder than ever before in his career)

    -Lyoto (Elusiveness will come through stron as long as he satys away from the takedown!!!)

    -Wandi (if he fucks this up I sawre to god…! He is now training with extreme couture and will become more well rounded and is doesnt want hiss career at lhw to be over)

    i think you got it right brandon, even though i would like tito to win just to stick it to dana on the way out i don't think it will happen.

    i think brandon is right but wrong wit the title fight..i would like to see tito win but he is overrated now and washed up..

    Tom, why do u think Sherk will win…? I feel all he can do is hold his opponent down and pick him apart with a few shots, all he has going for him is his strentgh and conditoning because just being a good wrestler doesn't make him a threat to BJ. Lets say Sherk has got him on his back the entire fight, that will simply open up a world of oppurtunities for submissions…

    i know that..i think sherks speed and strentgh and conditioning will be to much for bj but i could be wrong bj looked really good with joe but sherks my boy and i think he is going to win it..but i hope sherk strikes with bj cause i think he can win that

    tom- gsp stopped sherk in 2 rounds with strikes why do u think the result with bj will be much different? maybe gsp and penn arent a good comparison because thy are both completely different fighters but the two people who have beaten sherk 1.)matt hughes: has had his title taken from bj and would have lost a second time if bj's rib didnt break 2.) GSP: was battered by bj for the first round and can be argued that he lost the fight even tho i think gsp won.

    i dont think bj's conditioning (even tho he has looked in phenominal shape, and u can see his abbs for the first time in his career) will even come into play. i see him battering shrunk on the feet and either tko'ing him or subbing him.

    i think tito vs lyoto will be a more evenly close match than people think and while lyoto is the favorite i will be pulling for tito to stick it to dana but i definetly wouldnt bet on it.

    im also pulling for wandi… he needs this win badly and i think he has more talent that jardine. jardine should feel lucky… if the inshape, motivated chuck lidell that faught wandi faught jardine he wouldnt have lasted three rounds with the iceman. that being said jardine might be a tough matchup for silva because he has the same kinda build as chuck but i dont think jardine will be able to stop the axe murderer. especially now that randy has agreed to coach him.

    i think you nailed it there dane,tom i respect that your sticking with your guy and he is a tough fighter but i see his only way of winning being his cardio and wrestling and in no way should he stand with b.j.

    See Im glad we can disagree on something and not have it turn into an entire thread fight like some of these ass holes make it on this site…GO BJ, LYOTO, AND WANDI!!!!!!

    I agree that Wandi needs this fight though I don't know if he can pull it off. He just better bring his A game. Wouldn't look past Jardine though he can be a little flaky early in his fights.

    bj is insane. the only way sherk will beat him is decision if he smothers him like he did hermes franca. i hope tito will be lyoto but im not gonna hold my breath. and i think wanderlei is gonna beat jardine down like a little boy. takin nothin away from jardine cuz he did knock forrest out but if they fought again forrest would whoop his ass.

    bj over sherk

    probably machida over ortiz – dana is a dick so he picked the best unknown technical striker cause he is petty enough to want ortiz to lose his last fight even after all he's done for the sport – not going to b easy for machida although he sure makes it look easy.

    51% chance for jardine as wanderlei hasnt looked his best. prime wanderlei is second to no one though.

    jardine is better than liddell though.

    this. the winner should go after rampage's belt

    Tito is more than a has been.. It will be good to be rid of him. He trys to monopolize events, even when hes not fighting. When he does he sucks. Whos this guy fought of real substance and won? Its up to Tito to win a fight that really matters. he cant! Danna's a dick? Why does anyone care. he puts on great fights, and fighters arnt forced into their contracts. He ( Danna) has made quiet a fiew millionares out of these guys. You have a choice as well, watch something else!

    the guys at the top 20 level (not top 10) make about 10 G's or less usually. x 3 or 4 fights a year….

    that's barely enough to live on and pay for training.

    health plan insurance.

    any average skilled laborer is on par + he can do that for more than 10 years

    a few token millionares dont make up for this.

    and dana sucks because he abuses powere of the port. yea i could let it go.

    but, sport (root word of sportsmanship) is about gentlemanlike conduct and respect, not centered around one nation.

    not a spoiled american punk picking faves.

    that there are good fighters in the UFC is partly a coinidence although he deserves some credit for

    being a great busnessman

    Bj is a very talented fighter without arguement but he is also know to be a slacker when it comes to training. If he will take Sherk lightly then most likely we can see him losing the belt.
