I like Mayhem, but he's a submission fight going into the ring against a guy who's a much better submission fighter. If he tries to stay standing with Jacare, Jacare will take him down and catch the sub.

As for the rest of the card:

Aoki by triangle, duh
Overeem by destruction
Manhoef by repeated breaking of Sakuraba's face
Tokoro and Ferreira by sub
Zelg by TKO via cool name
Mousasi by knockout
My original post was this..

"Mayhem vs. Jacare is the toughest fight to pick on the card for me, I do believe that Jacare is in a different world on the ground which is why I expect him to sub Miller, but who knows maybe Miller can knock him down and finish up, I think Jacare's stand up is to the point where he can avoid just enough damage before getting the takedown and winning this fight. The guys coming over from sub grappling, guys like Maia, Jacare, Roger Gracie, Werdum recently over Vera, Vera was just no match at all for Werdum on the ground, none what so ever. These guys are so elite and that much better when it comes to the ground game. Jacare avoids strikes, gets the takedown and wins."

So yeah, like I said - there are levels and Jacare is on a different level when it hits the ground.

EDIT: And I take back what I said about it being the toughest pick now, the more I think about it, the more it becomes my easiest pick :O

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..
