The Best Match up at UFC 89
 
Now this fight isn't one probably half of the forum have thought about but trust me it is probably the best match up talent wise on this card.

David Baron vs Jim Miller.

David Baron is a guy some of the international MMA guys know. He actually just beat Sakurai and he fought Gomi not to long ago.

And he's fighting one of the best young LW's in MMA.

Jim Miller has one loss to Frankie Edgar and is an amazing ground fighter. In fact he dominanted a good IFL fighter in Bart Palaszewski.

Personally I think Miller will be a LW contender in the next year so I'm picking him but both of these guys are good enough to compete with the top LW's in the UFC and this match up is IMO a big deal.

Personally I think of greatest matchups in terms of what fight will feature two contenders and lots of action. Though your thought is a good one and it is sure to be a great fight. I think the best matchups are between contenders. Such as Bisping vs Leben or Diego Vs Alves. I do get your point though......

Diego vs Alves is at UFC 90.

Bisping vs Leben talent wise IMO isn't even close to Miller vs Baron.

Too bad we wont get to see that matchup :thumbsdown: But maybe it will be really good and they will have time to put it in.

Yep I really wish they would show it. The Miller brothers are crazy talented better then the guys from TUF 5 and 7 IMO. And Baron is one of the most underrated LW's in the world.

For me it is Luiz Cane vs. Sokoudjou. I think Cane is going to take it in the first or second round.

bbjd7 09-24-2008 09:53 PM

Cane and Sokky is a close matchup IMO but I think Miller vs Baron is even better.

Cane vs soko is great, big soko guy, so pullen for him, but far from an easy pick

Yes I got my events mixed up for a second. My apologies. I do enjoy seeing evenly matches. But I would rather watch an action packed fight between contenders. And if those guys are so much more talented than why arent they where Leben and Bisping are.. I doubt either one of those guys can take a punch like Leben can. Leben has a granite chin and lots of heart. Bisping is very talented. They are both contenders. Maybe Miller and Baron will be one day. But right now. Leben and Bisping will be a more exciting fight that will actually mean something other than a spot filler....
