Kerr vs Taktarov

These 2 guys are fighting at Yamma pit fighting. Kerr has gotten back on the winning track with 2 straight 1st rd submission wins, against total cans, but for Kerr it's a start. Oleg has always been very tough, he hadn't fought since 1998 before coming back and beating John Marsh last November by kneebar.

I really like both fighters and this is definetly an "Old School" fight between 2 very strong guys who both have very good sub games.

If Kerr puts away Taktarov It will be his 1st win over a quality opponent since 2000. Oleg has something to prove as well, because aside from Marsh, who is basicly a can, he hasn't fought in almost 10 years.

I'm picking Kerr to win this, hopefully he can string a few together and get back into the UFC. Kerr has the skills and the physical ability to compete at a high level, but his biggest obstacle has been himself. I would'nt mind seeing Oleg make a return to the big stage either, but I'm hoping Kerr pulls it out.

Discuss....

I'm going to have to go with Kerr. I think he has to much size on Oleg. Oleg really hasn't ever been much of a stand-up threat and Kerr should be able to pin him on his back and keep him there. Oleg is a mad man though and doesn't give up in a fight, so Kerr is going to have to pound him out or snap a limb off...

Oleg's slick with the leg-locks, but I think I'd pick Kerr to win a decision.. he's nothing without chin submissions.

I think Oleg's going to catch him. If you asked me this ten years ago, then I would've picked Kerr.

Man, I'm a big Oleg fan. Gotta go with the Bear. I'm hoping, anyway. This will probably be tough, but either way, I don't see either guy coming back to the big show.

A motivated Kerr at the top of his game could do big things in the UFC. He is one of the best wrestlers to ever compete and has a very good offensive and defensive sub game.

It seems like he is off the drugs, if he beats Taktarov, and then maybe another name fighter, I would not be surprised if Dana came calling.

In Pride he was, but before that he was exciting. Lately he has been winning by sub pretty quick, granted they were against total cans.

Kerr was very boring, but I've always been a big fan of his.
