    Week 8 is our first DOUBLE-HEADER,
    and marks a HISTORIC third time
    (in a row)
    the UFC has held an event on Friday!

    [​IMG]
    (Co-Main Event features the THIRD time Sam Stout and Spencer Fisher meet in the Octagon.
    The Canadian Stout, won the first matchup...The American Fisher, won most recently...
    )


    4-Fight Main-card Includes
    Featherweight Fighter Ross Pearson vs Cub Swanson.
    Welterweight Fighter Brian Ebersole vs TJ Waldburger.
    Lightweight Fighter Sam Stout vs Spencer Fisher.
    Lightweight Fighter (5 Round Affair) Gray Maynard vs Clay Guida.

    Synopsis:
    Both Ross and Cub have fought at Lightweight before and are not small FWs by any means. Both fighters are also accustomed to Fight of the Night bonuses...This is my pick for FOTN. Stout vs Fisher is a Trilogy fight; Sam's record in the last 6 fights being 4-2, Fisher's 2-4. Brian is the Australian hope, currently riding a HUGE 10-fight win streak. TJ holds a 3-1 record inside the Octagon, his lone loss coming to Jonny Hendricks. Last but not least, Gray and Clay face off in a very HEATED Lightweight match-up, which marks the FIRST time Guida will be fighting with braided hair...As requested by Maynard and his camp.
    :twotimes:
    &
    UFC 147: Silva vs Franklin II
    (Only featuring TWO American Fighters)
    [​IMG]
    ...I'm predicting some changes in the Rankings with this one...

    5-Fight Main-Card
    Catchweight Fighter (190lbs) Wanderlei Silva vs Rich Franklin (American).
    TUF Brazil Middleweight Finale: Sergio Moraes vs Cezar Ferreira.
    TUF Brazil Featherweight Finale: Godofredo Pepey vs Rony Mariano Bezerra.
    Heavyweight Fighter Fabricio Werdum vs Mike Russow (American).
    Featherweight Fighter Yuri Alcantara vs Hacran Dias.

    Synopsis:
    Silva vs Franklin and Werdum vs Russow are the only fights I can expect the average fans to know something about, other than that, most other fights on the card are filled with fighters largely unknown by the public.


    AS ALWAYS MAKE YOUR PICKS EASY TO READ AND GOODLUCK. THIS WEEK IS A BIG ONE WITH 9 TOTAL FIGHTS!!! UFC on FX 4: MAYNARD VS GUIDA THIS FRIDAY & UFC 147: SILVA VS FRANKLIN II.

    Featherweight Fighter Ross Pearson vs Cub Swanson.
    Ross is still new to the Div. but I have faith.
    Welterweight Fighter Brian Ebersole vs TJ Waldburger.
    Not a big fan of Brian but his record's impressive.
    Lightweight Fighter Sam Stout vs Spencer Fisher.
    In the last fight, Stout was getting beat to the punch.
    Hopefully he fixed that problem this time around.

    Lightweight Fighter (5 Round Affair) Gray Maynard vs Clay Guida.
    Can't believe I just picked Gray that fast.
    I don't think Clay has the Stand-Up to truly compete with him though.


    Catchweight Fighter (190lbs) Wanderlei Silva vs Rich Franklin (American).
    FUCK that was hard. I wanted to pick Wandy so bad :(.
    I think Rich has a good chance at finishing if he fights smart though.

    TUF Brazil Middleweight Finale: Sergio Moraes vs Cezar Ferreira.
    He earned his way to the finals.
    TUF Brazil Featherweight Finale: Godofredo Pepey vs Rony Mariano Bezerra.
    Heavyweight Fighter Fabricio Werdum vs Mike Russow (American).
    If this was anywhere else, I won't lie,
    Russow's name would probably be the one bolded.

    Featherweight Fighter Yuri Alcantara vs Hacran Dias.
    WOW...I can't lie I'm actually a bit excited for this card now.
    These two fighters could be stars in the making, WATCH OUT!



    Picks.

    I also want to let everyone know that for WEEK8, to enter the H.O.F. one would have to predict all 9 fights correctly (which is extremely possible!)

    It may seem like a bit much but I just want to clear up any confusion now. It makes more sense to me since this is just one big week of Predictions for us!

    I.E. Lungzz predicts UFC on FX 4 Perfect, then UFC 147 goes 2-3, no HOF will be awarded for UFC on FX 4 Perfect prediction.

    That is why I picked Glay. In my eyes he has seen the 4th and even fifth round before, whereas I don't think Clay has participated in more than a 3 rounder (maybe EARLY in his career once).

    EDIT: BTW, Miami Heat won, yay I'm rich

    i know what you mean grays was more recent but with clay it seems like his cardio is his confidence and i think he will have no problem going 5 rounds and imo gray looked horrible when the fight went to those rounds including the 3rd round

    clay doesnt get tired. This is actually a lot closer than it looks on paper. But I also think its quite obvious that clay will have to wrestle fuck to get the W

    I'd like to claim that everyone who picked Guida should get points seeing as he clearly won that fight.

    (I admit watching the fight, the sensible outcome looked to be Clay, but takedown/land rate/punches landed all went to Gray)
