Three members of the "Lackzilians" - my personal name for Imperial Athletics - are on this card: Gesias Cavalcante, Carlos Augusto Filho (byname Guto Inocente), and Yuri Villefort - and only Cavalcante is apparently favored to win.

The Lackzilians are a combined 12-12, by the way. So much for Mike van Arsdale being better than Greg Jackson.

Jackson has been around much longer than Imperial and has had many high profile fighters which is good for business. Having a UFC champ at your gym is the single best publicity you can have. It leads to more talented fighters coming aboard. If you look at the entire picture besides Jones, GSP and maybe Condit Greg Jackson's camp is average. A lot of their guys are on losing streaks or have been cut from the UFC all together.

For example Jardine, Joe Daddy, Arlovski, Carwin, Joey Villasenor and many more low profile bums.

Every camp is in reality average. They have their fighters who are riding winning streaks and those with loosing streaks. It happens with every including Xtreme Couture which I love but they have winning and loosing fighters.

Yes, he dominates then Champ Lesnar for five whole minutes in a fight that could have easily been stopped then he gets beat down for fifteen minutes by the Heavyweight Champ but he's a total bum.

Never mind the fact he brutally KO'ed the current top contender.

I think SF needs a new intro video considering 90% of the fighters aren't fighting for SF anymore.


EDIT: Wow that was nasty Spang was just tee'ing off with those knees, some of the nastiest we have seen since Silva/Franklin.

Nate Marquardt looks sickly but he actually may look like he has a chance of making 170 now. That said, Marquardt will lose cause he is another guy who was never out muscled and was never to small he simply wasn't all that great.

I think Kyle will take this but god I hope I am wrong because the guy has zero class.

Damn that was quick.

Really would love to see Feijao in the UFC, I wouldn't give him a hope in hell of beating Jones but he'd certainly be an interesting addition to the division. Top ten for sure imo,

Holy shit that was awesome, Feijao looked better than ever. Such a good showing. Duck the right and bam that knee.
