    P i c k s

    CHAMP José Aldo vs. CHALLENGER Frankie Edgar 4 the Featherweight Title.
    Aldo is a hard one to pick against.
    Unpredictable offense and great durability.

    Rashad Evans vs. Antônio Rogério Nogueira @ Light-Heavyweight.
    My favorite fighter since TUF 2 on SPIKE TV.
    Hopefully Rashad gets a big win here and calls out A.Silva/Gustaffson.

    Alistair Overeem vs. Antonio Silva @ Heavyweight.
    Good match-up here.
    Overeem is a bigger and badder Travis Browne in the stand up realm,
    I doubt Antonio pulls out another fluke.

    Jon Fitch vs. Demian Maia @ Welterweight.
    I like Maia LOADS more,
    and wouldn't even mind getting this pick wrong for him to win...
    That being said this looks pretty clear cut, grab the stitches.

    Joseph Benavidez vs. Ian McCall @ Flyweight.
    I didn't study any of the fights,
    this is clear cut too me.


    BONUS FIGHT(s): Jay Hieron vs. Tyron Woodley @ Welterweight.
    Woodley is younger and I feel he is more explosive at what Jay is good @.

    I was surprised this whole card. I can't believe two judges actually thought Aldo won 4 rounds. They really need to take some of these judges, sit them down, and really test how they are coming to these round by round points. I'm not mad, but I kind of felt like Edgar won the third, although I can certainly see people saying Aldo won the third. I'll need to rewatch.

    The Nogeiras have really underrated boxing. Bigfoot Silva is top 5 in the Heavyweight division. I think that should make people question how stacked this division really is. Same with Welterweight. The Welterweight division is getting ran through by Demian Maia. Face it, none of us would have called that last year. Welterweight is really perfect for him.

    I think a part of Maia's strength is that he isn't bullshitting anymore. He started getting complacent at MW a bit. If his performance tonight was what he attempted when he faced Silva.. we might have had a new champ. Previous to tonight.. he was never really the aggressor like that.

    the maia fight didn't surprise me at all. i think people have forgot that he is one of the best on the ground. i was actually kind of happy to see fitch get held on the ground the whole fight. YOU SEE HOW IT FEELS JON!!!

    what the hell was rashad doing? he needs to go back to his wrestling because that was an embarressing loss. not to say little nog isn't good, but theres no reason you should let a southpaw stand in front of you and take away your jab. he wasn't moving like he should be and has kicks he should show off more.

    LMAO at OverROID getting smacked up. he just became a meme for life.

    aldo vs. edgar went exactly how i thought. i gave frankie the last 2 rounds but aldo really did dominate him. but needs to work on his stamina, i dont think he could handle a wrestlefuck at lightweight. those leg kicks are scary
