    Who WINS and LOSES not HOW and WHEN correct.


    UFC on FOX 3 I believe has a couple fights that should of been on the April card. Good night of fights though and it should be more entertaining then tonights fights, though they were great as well. Pickett went at it.

    EDDIE YAGIN vs MARK HOMINICK

    Rashad was my easiest choice. Not picking my favorite fighter would be crazy. Rory/Michael/Alessio were much harder decisions. 2 were picked due to age coupled with skill, but in Alessio's case, I'm just going out on a limb.

    Update:
    Just to keep every1 posted, there's now a HALL OF FAME in the Rankings thread (that can be found in my Signature); may not be much incentive, but your name and the card/week you perfectly picked will be placed there for bragging rights!

    My bad!!


    ^^^This pretty much reflects my thoughts...although nostalgically?I'd like to see Miguel Torrres win his fight. I've always liked that guy. I also think that in all honesty if Brendan really REALLY comes to fight? His scrap with Ben will be too close to call; any mental lapse on Brendan's part? Ben takes the W. Yall sleepin on Eddie Yagin, but Mark SHOULD have too much experience [ at the upper skill levels ] and skill for him.

    Much as I want Rashad to win, I see Jones by Unanimous or Majority Decision. All that noize about Jones finishing Rashad in 1 round is crap. I predict Jones will try to kickbox Rashad, using his range movement kicks and combos to dictate the majority of the fight. He won't sprawl or clinch up with Rashad for any length of time, and he will try to mix aggression with defense and escape tactics. I do predict that Jones will go for takedowns of Rashad, but it won't be til later in the fight...middle of round 2 and round 3. If he does it earlier? It's cuz Rashad forced his hand by clinches and takedown attempts. Jones will definitely try to gnp Rashad.

    Mark my words: Rashad will kick in this fight, if his corner has ANY sense at all. On top of that? Jones shouldn't be able to submit Rashad. Maybe get a TKO ref or doctor stoppage due to bleeding from gnp'in Rashad...but Rashad's ground game is much underrated.

    I think everyone would be better off if Rashad won this fight. Rashad would finally get the respect that he deserves, he'd fight Hendo which would increase the anticipation for a Jones rematch...and Rashad and Jones would have a trilogy that would surpass Chuck and Randy insofar as skill displayed is concerned [ not PPV sales though I would think ]. Jones would get better as a result, and the UFC would have more marketable fights at LHW to display. If Jones wins...especially if he DOMINATES Rashad...then the LHW division will be in a state similar to that of the MW division: no real challengers for the champ. Either Jones would have to drop to a catchweight and fight [ lose to ] Anderson or he'd go up in weight and fight the HW champ. Dana might try to push Jones into being a HW after another fight or two at LHW because there's nobody for Jones to fight. If he quickly disposes of Rashad? He'd murder Hendo, and then it gets boring. There's nobody who can really sell a card with Jon because nobody's a challenge. Nobody.

    It's basically Rashad beats Jon or the LHW division is turned into a barren landscape...which wouldn't be a bad thing for the lighter divisions like welterweight lightweight and bantamweight. Those divisions have better fighters overall anyway imo.

    Real shocker that Miguel lost by KO and that Hom lost AT ALL. I thought that for once, Alessio listened to his critics and went out and got a wrestling pedigree after all that raggin he took and after being booted out of the UFC for a lack of ground game and consecutive losses.

    I need to STOP putting my training philosophies in the heads of MMA coaches.

    How's Schaub doing?
