Wanderlei will smoke Jackson (I hope!) I lost all respect for that guy after he ran from the cops in his truck and crashed into a bunch of cars...one of which contained a pregnant woman who miscarried! I think Noguiera will beat Mir. Mir just isn't the same after his accident. I have learned never to count Griffin out so I think he does stand a good chance...but Evans is just nasty!

Yes, no and yes. Silva by devastating knees because Rampage still can't defend the thai clinch; I can't see how Mir could win, Nog has better standup and ground game, Nog will take it easy IMO; and I think you're right on Evans, Forrest got lucky with Rampage and his chin is a bit suspect, Jardine knocked him out and Jardine isn't known for his devastating power.

I didn't hear about the Jackson incident, that is pretty crappy. You probably see alot of sad stuff in your line of work Praetorian. I agree with you on Griffin, he just seems to be able to take an enormous amount of punishment. Evans has had some NASTY knockouts lately though!!

It was in California...right after he lost to Griffin. That Liddell knock out by Evans was one of the hardest I have ever seen! ohmy.gif

I'm with you Monte on all but the Rashad/Forest fight. Rashad definitely has the power to knock Forest out, but let's not forget the fight between he and Bisping. Rahad ruled the ground but Michael was able to pass and get up. I think forest will present the same problems on the ground but, IMO, has a much better stand up.

I'm going with Forest.... biggrin.gif

Wanderlei - as history shows he has Jackson's number. Also Jackson right now doesn't seem to be in a good place mentally, if the fight had been scheduled a few months ago I may have chosen different but my money is on Silva for this one... maybe some more highlight reel knees smile.gif

Noguiera - I don't think Mir is back as good as everyone seems to think he is and I just think Noguiera is smarter and a better fighter at this point... also Mir has to contend with the "Fight Magazine" curse laugh.gif

as for Evans and Griffin it could go either way. Griffin is a tough bugger and can take a beating but he has been knocked out before, and Evans has shown he can knock a brother out! But Griffin is no fluke and he has some skill... not to mention that don't know when to quit attitude. This may get him in trouble but I think he's gonna retain the belt. Also I just hate that pinch the nipple thing Evans does... it's just weird.

laugh.gif I agree! I saw him interviewed about it...he said his trainer has him do that right before he fights to increase his sensitivity and awareness. GSP does it too lately I have noticed. Evans said his trainer has him doing all kinds of weird things. Like standing in the shower and forcing your eyes open to the water coming out of the showerhead. He said it trains you not to close your eyes when a punch is coming. Who knows!

I"M belive Jackson Finaly beat Silva...I'm see Jackson on Ficht with Griffin and he looks to me like slightly winner..i'm Realy like how he eat the painfuell leg kicks from griffin smile.gif

On case of Nogiera -MIR..here i'm slightly to Nogiera....specialy if Nogiera survive 1 round

and last more difficult Faith to chose for me...is Griffin-Evans
Evans is beast and he's undefeatable yet...Hi's Ko Chuck was amazing but i'm belive he never has oponet with so strong jaw biggrin.gif lot of guys punching and Kicking Forest face but he's still faith and never give up....so If Forest be able eat 1 clean bomb from Rhasad..He will won..Becouse Rhasad never was on so bad situaction like Forest and if Forrest Give him some trouble Rhasad will get upset for Punching Forrest with no Damage on Forrest mind...yeah they maybe Train Rhasad for this...but real Ficht is reall ficht

so Slightly here for Forrest smile.gif


so my Pick->to won
Jackson 75% to Silva 35%
Nogiera 55% to Mir 45%
Forrest 51% to Evans 49%

those last 2 faiths is verry dificuel to chose for me but i'm belive on the 1 faith Jackson will beat silva..He can't lose 3 times biggrin.gif

1-more thing why i'm slightly chose Forrest...i'm made the choise yestrday when i'm was see match Evans-Bispin
thats was close match and Bispin is also Guy with Good Chin...but i'm belive Forrest chin is mutch better like Bispin biggrin.gif

Silva should beat Jackson. He's on a roll. He's in a better place mentally. I also think Mir will beat Noguiera. Mir is surprisingly quick and agile at 255. He has a better ground game than Noguiera, in my opinion. I also think he is the stronger of the two.
The last one is a tough call. Evans has proven himself to be really good. I wouldn't place too much credit on him for knocking out Chuck, though. I think Chuck is on his way to retirement, and just got caught with a good punch. Forrest is amazingly tough. I honestly think he'll take the fight. He's a smart fighter, and I'm sure he's been studying Rashaad. His mental toughness coupled with his striking and ground skills should do it for him. Rashaad is really good, though. I still think Forrest takes it.
