If all the fighters who are "supposed" to win won all the time, I wouldn't bother watching MMA, all I'd need to do then is download highlight clips of my favourite fighters.
The unpredictability and potential for upsets is a big part of what makes MMA exciting and worth watching. That's why I think this has been a great year for MMA even though most of my favourite fighters lost.
As an added bonus, I bet Dana White's pissed that all his plans are getting shot to hell.
What I don't get is why people bother predicting stuff.
Even more amazingly, why do people bother with crap like "Rampage by 3rd round TKO" or "Werdum by first round RNC"? We can't even predict who is going to win: how are we going to predict what round? And by what method?
