meh I got ROckhold but will be rooting the other way. I think many of us overrated Consta. Hopefully it is a good fight. Another weak card...

I like Philippou in a three round fight but considering its a five round match up I'll take Rockhold because of his experience and more diverse attack I think he'll overall out point Philippou by being busier and landing a lot more kicks and knees.

I've never been sold on Costa. I expect Rockhold to pick up the win and get back on track.

Not convinced Philippou has what it takes to legitimately break the top 10, the win over Boetsh after countless fouls did little to sell me on him. Rockhold is to well rounded to lose this IMO especially considering Philippou has not shown one punch power.

Wow Rockhold made that look easy. He seems like a legit contender with that performance. I'd pick him over Bisping if that happens. Pretty sure he's getting Kennedy though.

I forgot the fights were tonight. That sucks. Just read the results online and was pissed since I wanted to watch it.

Nice to hear Rockhold put a beating on him. I was never sold on Constantinos as well.

A good, hard bodyshot is always a beautiful/agonizing thing to see.
