Dan Henderson vs Rampage Jackson
BJ Penn - Diego has shown me nothing that would led me to believe he would win a rematch.

Ben Henderson - I believe he has gotten 10 times better since losing to Pettis.

Anderson Silva - Hendo would get smashed badly, Anderson is too quick and accurate.

Roy Nelson - The stand-up in the first fight was a bullshit move from the ref.

Rory MacDonald - He was basically winning the first fight until he got caught, or at least making it a close fight. And he since has shown great improvements in his game, something I haven't really seen from Condit.

Dan Henderson - IF his cardio holds up. Rampage has become a slow, plodding unmotivated boxer.


Fedor, Mir, Lytle, Serra, Hendo, Chuck, Minowaman, Maynard, Forrest, Hunt
Pickett, Cerrone, Matt Brown, Bisping, Weidman, Barnett, Lawler

BJ Penn vs Diego Sanchez: Sanchez, Penn's body is just done, he can barely take a single body-shot.

Benson Henderson vs Anthony Pettis: This is a hard one, but I can't see Pettis pulling off that kick again, so Henderson would probably pull a decision.

Dan Henderson vs Anderson Silva: Anderson hasn't slowed down at all since they last fought, and Henderson's gas tank is running on empty.

Andrei Arlovski vs Roy Nelson: Nelson, Arlovski needs to retire.

Carlos Condit vs Rory MacDonald: I'm super biased, but MacDonald all the way.

Dan Henderson vs Rampage Jackson: Henderson, Jackson's head isn't in the game, he'll probably get KTFO by Glover.

D. Cerrone | R. Souza | F. Werdum | R. MacDonald | M. McDonald | D. Maia | J. Mein | C. Condit
M. Coenen | S. Kaufman | A. Davis

I have he's done well against poor comp, though Cole was punching bag, and Fulton was a terrible fight. But do I think he's turned the corner...if wins a rematch with Kharitonov then I know he's UFC calibur.

Yeah I tried to give you +1 on you post but I guess I have done that too recently and it won't let me.
I'm not saying AA has been looking great, just that he has taken some solid shots square on the jaw and stayed awake and won the fights. His chin was a punchline at one point but just like you mentioned he has looked better recently.
I think Roy is going in reverse right now and his best moments are also behind him. He can land that KO punch or even get the take down and sub. But IMO right now AA is fast enough and his ground game is solid enough for him to get the win.

Where's this came from?

I understood statements like this after UFC 137 but after the Georges fight? What gameplan was he over-relying on in that one?

Carlos tried some of the same shit he did vs Diaz. Backing up instead of being aggressive. He didn't have that killer instinct IMO. I thought both GSP and Carlos were a bit gun shy and definitely both looked rusty in that fight. It was far from their best performances. Just how I saw it.

Struve vs Nelson- I think Struve is getting better while Roy is starting to fall off a bit. But Roy still has the chin and power. I see a late KO for Roy.

Okami vs Franklin-Okami made it tough the 1st time around. But I think Ace can stay landing long enough to score on the feet and get another dec.

Marquardt vs Kampmann-I think Martin makes it competitive this time, but I think he loses a tough dec. this time around.

Daley vs Kampmann-I think Martin underestimated Daley who came in as a late replacement last time. I think Martin dominates and gets the sub.

Koscheck vs Alves- I think Kos would be very motivated and put Alves down at will. But hopefully he gets caught standing. But Kos by UD.

Struve vs Nelson

Nelson again. Struve still not any better defensively.

Okami vs Franklin

Okami via improved wrestling and size.

Marquardt vs Kampmann

Nate again. Kamp is still just as slow a starter and nate looks quicker and stronger at 170

Daley vs Kampmann

Daley for the same reason he beat him the first time. Better defensively more power and faster starter

Koscheck vs Alves

Who cares? Probably Kos Alves hasn't looked the same since gsp.
