    Lyoto Machida (-500) vs Shogun Rua (+300)

    Cain Velasquez (-290) vs Ben Rothwell (+230)

    Rumble (-300) vs Yoshida (+220)

    Berry (-105) vs Hardonk (-125)

    Okami (-250) vs Sonnen (+185)

    Stevenson (-220) vs. Fisher (+175)

    Bader (-500) vs. Schafer (+350)

    Premise: Each participant will start with $1000 fantasy dollars to bet on any fight/s s/he wants. You must bet in multiples of 100. The week before each major fight card both boxing and mma I will post the lines of the major fights and you can bet on as many or as few fights as you want to. We will go through UFC 108 (the Jan 2 card). The person with the most money will win. If you lose all of your money you are out until the next cycle of the competition. Good luck.

    SeeSon's Preview:

    Machida vs Rua

    In this light heavyweight matchup Lyoto Machida enters the match up as the heavy favorite. Since entering the UFC, Machida has yet to lose a round. He rarely sustains damage and is considered one of the elite strikers in MMA. Shogun is still attempting to regain his 2005 Pride FC form. Since entering the UFC, Rua has been less than stellar. Taking a fight against Forrest Griffin while still injured, Shogun looked like a shell of his former self. His next match up with Mark Colemen led to even more questions about his gas tank. To Shogun's credit, he did look very impressive against an aging Chuck Liddell.

    Why Machida can win: Machida is an elite striker that is very difficult to hit and he can win either via decision or t/ko.

    Why Shogun can win: Shogun was once widely considered the best 205er in the world. If he can regain his Pride FC form, he has the ability to absorb Lyoto's strikes and land vicious strikes of his own.

    What will happen: Machida by rape :smile:

    Happy Betting

    Crazy thing is, I actually want lyoto to win. But I think Rua can at least give machida fits.

    Also, you guys can bet on the other fight. I just didn't include a preview because I'm not familiar with Rothwell.

    The sad thing is, you are going to be ahead after the event. Shakes head...if I weren't running it, I would max out on Machida too, but I have to stay in until the end.

    I think Machida's really, really good. Shogun doesn't really want it with him standing up. But I think he can hang good enough standing up to clinch him, take him down, and either submit or grind out a decision.

    The biggest questions for me are: will shogun play it smart? is his cardio back on track? how good is machida's ground game?
