    Griffin (too stupid to know when to quit)
    Nogueira
    Massenzio
    Silva (Rampage is done- unfortunately. One of the few good fighters there.)
    Kongo (worst matchup there)

    There's your winners. Though I hope Rampage wins, and I hope Griffin (terribly boring/average fighter that seems to have all the luck combined with pure toughness) loses.

    Griffin is like the KVB of MMA --- But I dont like him and he will probably get knocked out here.

    I hope so......after the Ultimate Fighter Series, I think Mir is an ***. He is tough though. Neither will be able to beat Lesner.

    Agreed, Rampage looked out of shape in his last fight, but damn he is fun to watch. I love his slams. But one of the few good fighters...lol...your silly.


    As for the others....some good match ups, tought to call. Could be a good card, but the best ever? They say that about all of them...I will judge it after the fight.

    Griffin is a changed fighter.

    Since he's stopped trying to have crowd pleasing slugfests he's turned in two very good technical performances.Evans is very tough to beat,should be a great fight.

    I don't buy how Mir was portrayed as arrogant & disrespectful on TUF8.Nog has always been one of his heroes.

    As only a casual UFC fan (but a fan of CQC/other martial arts), the card looks pretty damn good to me. I'll prob chip in for this one with some buddies.

    I agree with the outcome except for Griffin. I really think Evans will KO him.


    I'm really excited for the Noguiera/Mir match. Excited for the winner vs. Lesnar. Either winner, and I'll still be psyched for the match.



    This is a great card. Hope it lives up to its billing.

    And I really want to see what the guy Kongo is fighting looks like. Worst matchup, but still a decent opener I think.

    Rampage - Ready for this fight. I believe he just got to big headed and arrogant for Griffin.
    Griffin - He isn't too stupid to quit, the guy just has more heart (probably more heart than anyone in mma besides fedor) and gets smarter with every fight.
    Nogueira - Mir is a good fighter but his time has passed and not on the same level as the rest of the top heavyweights. (and yes i know Lesnar got himself beat in their last matchup don't ever expect it to happen to him again unless he comes across no other than the last emperor, Fedor Emelianenko)
