Kongo has the best chance of upsetting CC just because it will be a stand up war, but I doubt it will happen.




What a stud

I agree with kds, Matt Hamill looked pretty bad in the Holman fight. I mean, Rex freakin' Holman? Is this the fight to build up Matt Hamill? Bisping's striking is overrated, but at least he knows how to set stuff up, sort of. Matt Hamill is still doing things he has done in the past, and if he keeps his hands down, then Bisping will knock his head off.

Bisping did get outstruck by Elvis Sinosic, but Sinosic isn't that bad, even though he had his head bashed in before delivering the knee. A semi-coherent Sinosic is better than a coherent Matt Hamill stand-up wise.

I'm thinking Hamil "could" upset also. Why? Becasue he has retard strength.

If he can get close enough to Bisping before getting his block knocked off, he could totally take Bisping down and either eeek out a decision or G 'n' P him. Although, even if it went to decision, Bisping would for sure look crisper and u have home town advantage

It doesn't happen too often but I gotta disagree with you there KDS13. I just watched this very short fight again and his strikes look okay to me. Two superman punches that landed, confidence while moving forward and besides the point, he could have been yawning while avoiding the takedowns. He only threw about 11 punches, which ones do you think were sloppy? There was a hook coming out of the clench that was wild but c'mon. It's not like I am calling him Anderson Silva or something. From this fight I think his strikes are adequate and I am adding that to his already established superiority in wrestling and avoiding the takedown. So I think there may be an upset.

Update...
Well I watched it again...I have to say about 50% of the strikes were wild and sloppy but still, the overhand rights he landed were good, he had his whole back and shoulder into it and I am not so sure some of his punches weren't bait to get Rex to go for the takedown.

When I watched Kongo fight at UFC 70...... I thought his striking wasnt that great. That little guy he was fighting (Assuario Silva) was taking his hits and they really didnt do much to him.

If "such a great striker" ( ) like Kongo couldn't put down Assuario... then I dont think he'll put down Cro Cop.

If thats the case here... Cro Cop is gunna knock Kongo back to the jungle.


I wouldnt consider Hamill beating Bisping an upset. Im kind of pulling for Hamill now because Bisping just seems like an a*shole.

Now regarding Hendo/Rampage.... IDK with that one. I want Hendo to go back to MW. But if he beats Rampage, he'll probably stay at LHW. BUt if he loses to Rampage and moves to MW... to me, it might tarnish him status a little bit. The hype up for his unification MW bout wont be as exciting.

I'd prefer Hendo to win the LHW title, then move to MW, and take on Silva/Franklin for the belt.

Could you imagin hendo holding FOUR titles at once!? The unifyed LHW titles and then the unifyed MW titles! That'd be freaking sweet!!!

If you consider it an upset, I think Hamill could beat Bisping. Probably by lay and pray decision. I don't think it's going to happen, but if I have to pick a most likely scenerio that would be the one. At first I was thinking Kongo would upset CroCop, but I think he will come back strong.

Assuerio hasn't won in a while but he is a good striker and not any easy guy to KO. He also has KO power of his own. That was a decent win for Kongo, Assuerio has a bad UFC record but really is a good fighter.

Though I think tomorrow is going to go pretty upset free, I think there are really only two fights that could end in upsets. Crocop and Bisping's fights are the only two where there should be a definite winner. Of those two, it wouldn't be terribly shocking to see either lose, so I'm not sure if this is the best PPV to get worked up over in regards to upsets.

Halebop, you had one of the best avys on the forum. i would have definetly rocked an Eilers Av myself, but I am not one to rip off other peoples stuff. I sported a Paul Varelans Avy for 2 months, half the people here probably had no clue who it was.

I'm guessing you lost a bet?
