Damone, While I do agree it could go to Judges, Horn in his prime countered everything a person like Dean Listler threw at him ground game wise. Or Knocked out Chuck Liddell. I would say from early '99 to mid '05 (in his style wise.)?

Fight Night 15.....good fight card

...There are some good match-ups on this card. Man...a year ago, I thought as well as many others, Houston Alexander was sure to be a title contender. His last fight with Irwin was an 8 second embarrassment. Alexander's ground game is a weakness that has been exposed. Houston had better be careful with Schafer's Jiu Jitsu. Alexander needs to avoid the takedown. Schafer is dangerous on the ground. I think Houston's key to victory would be to stay within striking range and overpower Schafer with his Muay Thai strikes getting a TKO or KO.
...Nate Diaz is one tough cookie. Nate has a sick ground game and like his older brother- not afraid to strike. Neer has a good ground game as well and Neer will be Nate's toughest test...he may even lose, Neer has a lot of experience and is a pretty good striker. Should be a great night of fights.

Houston Alexander is a pathetic fighter, all he has is some power in his hands, he's not precise, not quick, has very bad footwork and, most of all, he makes pathetic ugly faces when Bruce Buffer presents him...

Hmmmmm, heres what I have....

Guida by Una Dec
Diaz by 3rd round Sub
Schafer by 1st round Sub
Lauzon by 1st round TKO
Herman by Una Dec
Gouveia by Una Dec
McFedries by 1st round TKO
Kimmons by 3rd round TKO
Sakara by 1st round TKO
Brilz by 2nd round Sub


Danzig/Guida: I know Danzig is an all around gifted fighter, but I just feel that Guida will be to much for him as he is for a lot of fighters. Guida can take a punch and he is very active on the ground. Danzig was having a lot of problems in his fight with Bocek in the beginning and I just picture Guida pushing the pace for all 3 rounds.

Diaz/Neer: No matter how I look at this fight I picture Diaz winning, but the method of the win is what I can't make a final decision on. He is great at subs and thats about it, but Neer is a hard person to stop, so I've been going between a late sub after they both get tired or by decision. Right now I'm leaning towards sub.

Schafer/Alexander: Well I originally had Houston by first round KO, but I feel that Schafer will be able to take a couple punches and avoid any big hits early and get this fight to the ground where he will probably either get a triangle choke or rear naked choke.

Lauzon/Bradley: I didn't get to see much of Bradley in his last fight, but I think Lauzon will take the same approach as Lytle and just stay in Bradleys face and eventually getting a TKO late in the first.

Herman/Belcher: This fight has a potential to go both ways. Herman is hard to finish and Belcher is a pretty tough guy. I think this will be a back and forth battle on the feet and ground which could get FOTN in my opinion. I give the win to Herman by decision.

The rest of the fights I don't really feel like talking about. I would rather see McFedries on the main card than Gouveia and Horn.

MMA Warrior has a little shameless behaviour in the past
IMO Jeremy Horn vs Wilson Gouveia will be an interesting fight

It will show if Horn still has "it" and if Gouveia can hang with someone of Jeremys experience

I hope Horn wins, if not im guessing thats him out of the UFC

Horn hasn't shown he still has "it" in his last 5 fights.

Why is everyone saying that Neer is hard to finish? Most of his losses are by him being finished rather than him losing by decision.

Diaz is always working off his back and I can see him adding another submission loss to Neers record.

The only way I see Neer winning is by decision. Although I don't think he can go 15 minutes with Diaz without getting caught in something.

Look who finished Neer, though. Bigger guys and a sick striker. Neer is a durable guy, and this won't be an easy fight for Nate Diaz.
