I'm really hoping to see a brutal slugfest! Anything else will disappoint me.

I'm hoping the future of Chute Boxe Thiago can win. It is going to be a real tough fight for him but he's defiantly got a shot.

Houston is a beast and Silva is being really cocky. I can't wait till Houston hits him on the chin once or twice in a row and he falls!

Acoustic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Houston Alexander in BIG trouble?

No matter how many ways I've looked at the fight between Houston Alexander and Thiago Silva, I just can't see how Houston Alexander can get past a refined and well schooled fighter like Thiago.

On all counts, from striking to grappling, in my judgement, Thiago wins. Unlike a sniper like Anderson Silva, whose entire arsenal of moves is carefully deliberated and coordinated, Houston seems merely a healthier and cleaner version of Tank Abbott, an eratic brawler - which you can't be when fighting a meticulous and intelligent Brazilian, much worse, an alumni of Chute Boxe Academy.

On top of that, Houston doesn't seem to have long range loops or far-reaching jabs in his arsenal - so that he reaches as though he were 5 ft 9 and not his actual height, 6 ft 0. I also doubt that he can out-clinch Silva, and certainly, if it goes to the ground, it's gameover even quicker for Houston. I'm basing this opinion on my observation of Houston's stiff and rigid manouvering on the ground on the Thursday night fight pre-show.

Anything can happen in MMA, but I doubt that Houston beating Thiago is one of those things - but who knows, we'll only know for sure in a few hours.

I think he can weather Houston's storm and go on to win. Thiago Silva's an interesting prospect.

Houston wil have a good strength advantage, and I think he will out clinch silva. He also beat Alessio, who is a great boxer.

Thiagos gotta go my friend.

Yeah, but Sakara is inconsistent, and he doesn't handle guys who are aggressive.

Yeah, but I thought he would win that fight. Stay outside, outbox Houston and keep moving. Luckily for Houston, hes stupid.
