Wow, MMA is in a really messed up state right now. With noone knowing whats going on with the LW, WW, or HW belts. Things are pretty messed up. But all that doesnt really matter to me. Becuase there are a bunch of fights coming up that I want to see.
First fight is obviously Wanderlei Silva vs Chuck Liddell. This is one we have been dreaming about for years. A little luster might be lacking but this is still a HUGE fight for MMA. Ive gone back and forth thinking who would win this fight and Ive come to the conclusion that Chuck is going to give Wand alot of trouble. His style is perfect for a guy like Silva. As long as Chuck can withstand a few of Wand's flurries he will eventually catch Wand and put him down. Silva didnt look the same after Crocop put him to sleep. And it will only be worse after being knocked out by Hendo right after.
Next fight has to be Hughes vs GSP. You gotta love a rubber match with the 2 best WW's in the world. Granted a Hughes/Serra fight would have been fun to see, I just think this fight is alot more interesting. Can GSP fight as flawlessly as he did in the 2nd fight? Will Hughes get the takedown?? My answers are yes and no. GSP is a nightmare opponent for Hughes and nothing has changed. Look for GSP to pepper Hughes for 2 rounds, eventually finishing him off in the 3rd.
The last fight Im looking forward to is Joe Daddy and BJ. This fight is going to great as well. Bj is one of my favorite fighters to watch and Joe Daddy is a rising star. I favor BJ in this fight mainly because he is so well rounded. I look for BJ to keep this fight standing and pick Joe apart with his strikes. Joe may win a round but BJ wil be in control. I see BJ winning a UD
