Who do you guys have winning and WHY.
I'll only talk about Main Card fights.
Noguiera vs Cain
-I have Nog winning this by submission and I know most avid mma fans will most likely have Cain winning. My reasoning is I'm very sure Cain can keep Nog on the ground, but Nog works great off his back and his BJJ is years ahead of Cains. If the fight stays standing, I believe Nogs striking is better than Cains.
Wanderlei vs Bisping
-I think if Wanderlei has kept up his new strength and conditioning routine, he can get the TKO/KO for this fight. If Wanderlei tires out, I see Bisping taking this to decision. I'm rooting for Wanderlei for sure.
Joe Stevenson vs George Satiropoulos
-I have no idea how this fights going to go. Both these guys have a great ground game and equal striking ability. I do believe Joe has the better cardio and can grind out a win. This should be a great fight.
Jardine vs Bader
-I have Bader winning this fight via TKO on the ground and pound.
Mirko Filipovic vs Ben Rothwell
-I'm not gonna lie, I REALLY want Mirko to win this one since he is my #1 favorite fighter next to Fedor. If the old Mirko of the Pride days shows up I see a murder happening in the ring. A lot of people say he's lost the will to fight mentally and I don't blame them. Ben is pretty desperate for a win and desperate guys will do crazy things.

Nog by submission or heck, even knockout.
Wand by whatever he wants. I don't see how people piss on Wand. He has lost to really good guys in all his recent fights and other than Rampage, looked competitive.(Cro Cop was out of weight class and Vitor was years ago) The one good guy Bisbing fought almost killed him.
I like Joe Daddy, so I will go with him.
Jardine wins. Again, all his recent losses are against good people, and he has beat some very good people. Not sure Bader has fought anyone as tough as the Dean yet.
It pains me to say this, but Cro Cop is dead. Rothwell might even stop him.

I hope Bisping gets desecrated again like he did against Hendo. That's all I am really looking forward to seeing at 110. Noguiera is gonna be awesome too.
Nog by submission and maybe even standing KO as well. I do believe Cain is a future contender though. I'll say this though I would not be surprised to see Cain win, I just think his GNP style is to wild and will get him caught in a submission. Then again I could be completely wrong and what looks wild to me could actually be control for Cain so who knows.
Wand takes this Bisping was KO'd against Hendo and then almost KO'd against Kang. Wand will finish him in the first or second.
Joe Daddy wins by whatever he wants
Bader beats Jardine either standing or with some GNP.
CC vs Rothwell who knows I'll go with Rothwell since he probably wants it more.
I think nog will beat cain, either standing or on the ground, not that i think cain is bad just nog was on top form against courture and if he fights like that again i cant see im losing.
wanderlei will knock out bisping in the first round as bisping always seems to leave himself wide open.
Jardine will pull off a win against bader, maybe decision.
I see rothwell has pulled out of the fight with cro cop so anthony perosh has stepped in, so can see cro cop winning that.

That was a huge win for Velazquez. I was impressed, but I still don't think he is as great as Joe Rogan wants to tell me he is.
Bader had a huge knockout. It seemed like Jardine was frustrating him. He looked tired by the third round. He may have to change his strategy of throwing bombs with each punch. It could cost him a fight. He has great potential.
Happy with Wanderlai, but wish he would have exploded in the third round.
That Satripoulus guy did a great job controlling Joe Daddy. Wasn't that exciting except for the few near submissions Stephenson had. George got great positioning. Did really do much with it.
Cro Cop should have retired after Gonzaga beat him. He doesn't have it anymore.
Best moment was Chris Lytle's knee bar.
Really hard to tell with Cain. Nog is a huge win, but this isn't the same Nog that fought in Pride and recovered from everything. I think the hard battles he's been in are taking a toll on his chin and his recovery.
I'm still thinking they might be rushing Cain through the ranks, but who else is really at the top of the UFC, right now? Mir, Carwin and Cigano are the only guys I would put on the same level as Nog, or above.

I think the reason why Wanderlei was being a bit cautious is because he NEEDED this win. If round 2 would have had 5 more seconds at the end of the round, he would have finished bisping. I'm sure once Wandy gets another W under his belt, we'll see the all out Axe Murderer come back. He definitely finished Bisping off in the 3rd.
Its good to see Mirko utilizing the elbows in his game now. Even though he fought some nobody, he looked a lot better in this fight than in his last ones.
I love nog and have a lot of respect for him, but i think he needs a break. Good win for c.v.
I was really surprised with Cain he improved his stand up a lot. I'm glad he won in all honesty the HW division needs new contenders.
George impressed me against Joe Daddy he schooled him on the ground. I take BJJ classes so the fight was awesome to watch for me. Joe just had no answer for anything against George. He looked embarrassing in the stand up almost everything he threw missed.
Was glad to see Wanderlei beat Bisping. The ending to the third round was perfect. I kept telling my GF that if Wanderlei would just rush Bisping he would finish him.
Glad to see Bader win another contender in the LHW division is always great. Jardine didn't look to good in that fight he was getting tagged in that fight left and right.
Overall great card another loss for Bonnar though which wasn't surprising.

I actually thought Crocop looked really good. He looks like he put on some good size, but man could the other guy take a shot. I think if Crocop combines his newfound power with his old school explosiveness everyone could be in for a surprise. Of course this could all be wishful thinking, but i can dream lol right?
