Im hoping for a highlight reel KO of Schaub.

If that happens I'll laugh my ass off.

Wait, did Court realize he's in the wrong weight class and FINALLY drop down to 170? That's good to see.

I'm not sure how I feel about this fight. I picked Neer to win because it seems like McGee is the same fighter he was when he was on TUF. He hasn't really shown improvements since then. I like the guy, he's been through a lot and he's apart of the pit, but he hasn't impressed me since he won TUF. Neer is a veteran of the sport and won't make this easy for him. Hopefully, McGee looks better at this weight class because I want to see the guy improve and reserve his spot on the UFC roster.

Glad to see Chiesa back in action. It showed how much heart he had on his season of TUF when learning about his father but still winning the tournament despite that. I think most people would have wanted to leave after that, but he kept going strong knowing it's what his father would have wanted and he won it all. Such a feel good story and I found myself cheering for him throughout every one of his fights. I think he should win this fight against Anton comfortably.

Lavar should knock out Schaub early. Schaub has a very suspect chin, and Lavar is one of the hardest hitting heavyweights in the UFC. He may not be the best striker, but his brick hands make up for it. Schaub better play defensively for a while in my opinion.

Have you guys ever seen them set up something like this for fans outside before the prelims? Almost like a football pregame out there in Anaheim...

Kind of a big pic:

The only ppv shows I've been to just had a big crowd outside the doors with nothing to do but wait for them to open up. Glad, Bud's OP has the link to watch these fights on youtube so we don't have to rely on facebook's sometimes good/sometimes shaky streams.
