    couture(), koscheck, grove, stevenson, sobral, huerta and guida ftw.

    Too awesome lightweight fighters in there, Guida and Huerta. They should be facing off. Or maybe Tyson Griffin v. Roger Huerta someday.

    I've got:
    - Gonzaga
    - Koscheck
    - Grove
    - Stevenson
    - "Babalu"
    - Huerta
    - Aurelio
    - Lutter

    Looks just as good as UFC 73, if not better IMO.

    ^ I think on paper 73 looked better on paper than this card, but if these guys push the fights for a non-decision, then it could def. be better.

    I'm really on the fence about Randy vs. Gonzaga, but I'm leaning toward spectacular 2nd round KO for Zags. I see Grove choking Cote out early on.

    I almost didn't post a pic for either of these, but I like Randy and want him to win. A popularity pic isn't exactly a good way to place my money but I will. I'd also say that he's is in a great place mentally and has no issues with training for this ... his last big hoorah in MMA. I think he can withstand Gonzaga's striking with the same strat he used on Dorkboy. Strike, damage, and move. He's a damn smart fighter.

    It will either be a TKO from Cote or a sub win for Grove. I'm thinking with the sub losses Cote has endured he's been working his ground game in expectation of Grove so I gave Cote the nod.

    I'm with you, I really, really, really, REALLY want Randy to win so with that mindset I decided I'd go with Gonzaga. I like Cote a lot too, so I'm hoping your theory is right but Grove's size coupled with the improvements he's made over the past year makes him tough for anyone @ 185 IMO.

    Grove is one of Tito's guys isnt he? Pics arent showing up on the computer again. (Ephedra has me on edge today like a mofo)

    I want Randy to win too. I watched what I could of Gonzaga and I still dont know how good/bad he is. The fact that he knocked out Cro Cop is overshadowing my decision on this one.

    I guess the biggest possible disappointment I am awaiting is the GSP/Kos fight. I want GSP to win, but I cant see it happening.

    Jesus, and I see Frank Mir is fighting again? Did he lose his last one or win it?

    There are no pics. I had all of the fighter's pics up but apparently there is a 10 image limit on posts.

    Mir got beat down by Brandon Vera his last match. I don't expect much from him, but he should pull out the win.

    I would imagine GSP will be a pretty decent sized favorite in this match-up.

    Favorite yeah, but do you think hell win? I am hoping he does!!

    I think everyone likes a modest fighter, but I guess they cant win all the time.
