I suck so bad at picks I'll just give you who I want to win and why where applicable.

Justin Buchholz Vs. Matt Wiman -
Handsome Matt because he trains up here in Tulsa. Wiman by sub.

Joe Veres Vs. Corey Hill -
I don't likek Hill. But I like that he trains with Pulver and MFS. Hill by TKO

Jeremy Stephens Vs. Cole Miller -
Miller by sub. He's gangly looking but seems fairly tuff.

Dennis Siver Vs. Gray Maynard
Double TKO! Actually, wouldn't that be something if Maynard knocked himself out again? Maynard by GnP

Alberto Crane Vs. Kurt Pellegrino -
Crane by sub. Batman doesn't fly with me for some reason.

Michihiro Omigawa Vs. Thiago Tavares -
Tavares by dec.

Alvin Robinson Vs. Nate Diaz -
I want to see Diaz and Manny rematch. I'd also like to see Nick and Karyo go at it again. Keep it in the family you know. Nate by dec.

Patrick Cote Vs. Drew McFedries -
I really don't think either have a chance in the MW division. But they both come out and swing. Should be good exciting fight. I'll take Cote as I think he is more technically sound. TKO in 2nd.

Mike Swick Vs. Josh Burkman -
I just want to see Swick pound the lights out of Burkman. I think Arriany (UFC mega babe ring girl) is or was dating Burkman. So I just don't like him. Jealousy? Absolutely.
Swick by Quick TKO.

I'll have to record the card. Going to watch Memphis beat the daylights out of TU tonite.

Justin Buchholz Vs. Matt Wiman :Wiman, though I really don't care for him.

Joe Veres Vs. Corey Hill: This is an interesting one. You know the UFC is hoping Hill does good. I know hardly anything about Veres, but his 2 losses are to pretty good fighters. I'll take Veres because I don't really think Hill is all that good. Wouldn't be surprised if he got choked out.

Jeremy Stephens Vs. Cole Miller: Miller, though I'm not a big fan.

Dennis Siver Vs. Gray Maynard: Maynard. I don't think he will knock himself out again like stun is hoping for. :hihi:

Alberto Crane Vs. Kurt Pellegrino: Pellegrino. Crane could submit him, but I doubt KP gets caught.

Michihiro Omigawa Vs. Thiago Tavares: I think Tavares is a little overrated, even coming off his loss, but I think he takes this one.

Alvin Robinson Vs. Nate Diaz: Robinson is a pretty tough test, but I think Diaz will catch him eventually. The problem with the Diaz brothers is they will take punches all day trying to get that submission. If they don't get it, they lose via decision.

Patrick Cote Vs. Drew McFedries: I think Cote continues his winning ways...though I don't know why I think that.

Mike Swick Vs. Josh Burkman: Swick-a-tine baby! Guillotine in late round 1. :hihi:

The last Fight Night...well actually the TUF finale...I was perfect on my winning picks. Since them I'm like 7-20 or something. Here's to getting back to the winning ways. :)

That's true. He was. She's single now though I hear...I still got a chance. :9:

How can you not like Miller? He's the least UFC looking dude I've ever seen, but he really uses his legs well when on the ground. I like him.

It's nothing personal, I'm just not a huge fan. I couldn't give you a reason why. Some people I just neither like or dislike. I've never been a Chuck Liddell fan or a Randy Couture fan, etc. No real reason. I respect them certainly, but I'm just not a fan. Miller obviously isn't at their talent level, but the same holds true for him.

Justin Buchholz Vs. Matt Wiman -
Wiman is average at best. I don't know who he is but... Bucholz by decision.

Joe Veres Vs. Corey Hill -
Hill was my favourite fighter off of my favourite season of TUF. Hill by TKO..

Jeremy Stephens Vs. Cole Miller -
Miller's way tougher than he looks. Miller by sub.

Dennis Siver Vs. Gray Maynard
I'm hoping Maynard tops the double TKO with the triple TKO... somehow knocking out the ref in the same blow that knocks out himself and his opponent. More likely... Maynard by decision.

Alberto Crane Vs. Kurt Pellegrino -
Weak. Crane by DQ.

Michihiro Omigawa Vs. Thiago Tavares -
Weak. Tavares by decision.

Alvin Robinson Vs. Nate Diaz -
A decent test for the talented Diaz. Diaz by sub.

Patrick Cote Vs. Drew McFedries -
I think Cote is really better than a lot of people give him credit for. This could be a very exciting fight. Cote by KO.

Mike Swick Vs. Josh Burkman -
IAdd me to the list of people who are put off by Burkman, but I think he's a better fighter than Swick. Burkman by decision.

-Spencer Fisher vs. Marcus Aurelio
-Clay Guida vs. Sammy Schiavo
-Tommy Speer vs. Anthony Johnson

Well....that was a bad main event. Diaz had a great sub...Pellegrino's lip was crazy...Cote is on a roll...shouldn't have picked against him....Tavares vs Omigawa was lacking...My favorite parts were during the Stallone interview, and Goldberg being corrected by Rogan about Japanese.

KP got caught alright.. Right across the lip with Crane's shin.. That was nasty.. He recovered nicely though..

Yeah, the main event was a little disappointing. I really felt like it was the type of fight that would end in a KO or submission, but there really wasn't a moment when either Burkman or Swick just laid it on the line. They both fought relatively cautious.

Time to give Diaz a true contender.

Was it just me, or did Swick look horrible at that weight?

He looked totally emaciated. Yeah, Burkman is big for that division, but Swick didn't look to have a strength advantage at all.

Yeah, no kidding. I really didn't know if he would make it out of those first 2-3 minutes. Of course after that you could kind of see the rage in his eyes and you knew the end was near for Crane.

Not only did Swick look tentative but also like he was zapped of his will to throw combos. Very strange fight.

Did Rogan say Goldies wife was Japanese too? and he didn't recognize the language? Maybe he was kidding him but still.

I was dissapointed they couldn't squeeze another fight in. Like the Miller/Stephens fight or the Wiman fight. They were quick enough right....

Yeah, that J-Lau/Ken-Flo card is looking really nice for a free one. I'll go on record now saying I hope Lauzon KO's Ken-flo
