Can't wait for this, this weekend is such a good one for MMA - first possibly the first time there's UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator and Dream on the same weekend.

Every fight is so close and could go either way.

These are like mirror images of each other, with one a bit younger than the other. Warren's last 3 have all been close - Freire fight was split, Soto destroyed him that first round, and Galvao should have been awarded the decision. I havn't seen much iof Vila, but he's an olympic medalist who is 9-0 and never been to a decision. I just think the edge will be the cardio of Warren - i can see Vila getting success early on by Warren fighting back to get a decision. Warren Unanimous Decision

Mr semi-final meets the prospect Dantas. Dantas is a beast, only dude he's lost to is Ueda, i really rate him. I like Reis too, and wouldn't be too suprised if he won a decision using his top control, but i think Dantas is just the better quality fighter, and think he'll win the decision. Dantas Unanimous Decision

Another really good fight which could go either way. I actually like West to get the upset here though. Nogeuria is a great prospect like Dantas, but West is a guy i like, he has good submissions and good wrestling, and i can see him holding Nogueira downj for much of the 3 rounds to get a decision. West Unanimous Decision

Galvao v Beebe
I've never really been impressed with Galvao except his 'loss' against Warren, where he looked great. Beebe is a confidence fighter - when he's on a roll he's hard to stop. He is now - having won 7 of 8, so i fully expect him to finish Galvao within the distance. Beebe 1st round Submission
