Whos watching this saturday, and who are you picking? I'm gonna say Forest, but he'll probably get slaughtered just because I want him to win.
Silva will win IMO. He is just too good of a fighter, I can't see him being beat, even when moving up a weight class
You gotta like Forrest, but I don't think he's ever met anyone like Spider. I think Spider will win.

I'd really like to see St. Pierre put on some size and meet Silva in the middleweight division. That would be a good matchup...
pierre vs silva would cause the earth to crack in half, thats just physics lol. forrest can take a beating better than anyone, thats a fact. silva is just too good though. ill try and find the youtube link to where he actually knocks a guy out while on his back by kicking him in the head, its unreal.
Should be a pretty good fight since Forrest can take a punch, and he will take several that night. I think Silva will take it, but I don't think it will be quite as easy as some of his other fights.
I think Silva wins... But Forrest is going to take a beating and keep on coming. Forrest is a definite badass. But, Silva is going to win it.

Silva. Forrest is one of my favorites, but like everyone mentioned before me, Silva is just too good. Definitely gonna be a great fight to watch though!
I'm not going to count Forrest out on this fight. He's a BIG 205'er and he can take **** tons of punishment and has lots of stamina. He's been training with Drysdale and his ground game has gotten a lot better(used to be his bread and butter in the old days). I believe that if the fight goes to the ground, Forrest would out wrestle silva and get position due to size and strength. If it stays standing, I give it to Silva. Its going to be a great fight to watch. Its hard watching 2 fighters you fans of fighting each other, but somebody has to win. Its gonna be hard to watch the Rua and Machida fight as well.

Silva has been lackluster his last couple of fights, but he still is a better fighter than forest. But I like forest, even if hes not the greatest fighter hes a die hard and gives 110% every fight, I do hope he pulls off and upset.
Success is achieved by doing a little more than you thought you could, and a lot more than anyone else.
I have a feeling this is gonna be a massacre. Both fights actually. Yes Forrest beat Shogun and Rampage when no one thought he would(I actually thought he would beat Rampage), but Anderson would smoke both of them too.
i think it'll be worth watching at least. cuz forrest is known for upsets, not to mention as ive said before, he may not be the best at fighting over all but he'll take a beating that none of them could stand.

This is one of the fights that I'd love to see, but then again I'd hate to. I'd love to watch these two go at it, but I'm afraid for either one to lose to make me think less of them. It's like a lose-lose situation.
I think it'll depend on whether or not Forrest can defend against knees and roundhouses. The highlights I've seen of Silva (I'm acknowledging I haven't followed him for very long) almost always show him controlling the fight.

You will have gotten stronger when the weight that feels heavy is actually heavier than the weight that feels heavy now. Then the weight that feels heavy now will be a warmup for the weight that feels heavy then. But the weight will always feel heavy or you're not lifting enough weight. Clear? -Rippetoe
I think UFC.com has live feeds and yahoo sports also. Unless you mean free, can't help ya there bro.
If you want a "decent" free online stream, TVU is a pretty good program. There's a channel called mma-tv on the network that will always have them live. Nothing beats a good BBQ and HD TV + Drunken alcoholics though to watch it with .
Anyone buying the fights tonight? I want to see the Silva fight, but don't see this card worth the money. Outside of the top 2 fights it is a UFN level card. They are putting on too many shows a year imo. You get some great and then some weak.

Not buying it either. Some cards are better than others, this is one of those weaker cards. Thanks to Strikeforce though I look forward to seeing some free UFC in the near future LOL
im going to buffalo wild wings tonight with some buds to watch the fights. Also i thought i would tell you guys this but rick lamas my mma coach is going to be fighting tomorrow night on WEC on VS. channel. I thought thats pretty cool.
