St. Pierre
Silvia
Vera ( only because I'm not sure about Mirr yet)
Sakara (I think he brigs alot more than we saw with Lister)
Diaz
and maybe Imes
Sakara...thats the guy that fought lister for his debut??? That guy was pretty good I thought. I didn't realize it was him that was fighting in 65. I think Monson is gonna take Tim down pretty quick. GSP is gonna sprawl so well I bet. Hughes is gonna get frusturated

Nick Diaz will never be dominate at LW. He's not quick enough.

You see what sean did to him in stand up alone? And seans not even a real pure stand up fighter, he's good at it, but if Nick Diaz went up with a guy like Kenflo (whos a better BJJ fighter, sharper elbows, and more of a well rounded stand up with kickboxing) he'd loose. Same thing with guys like Spencer Fischer, Melvin Guillard, Joe Stevenson.

I think all those guys could pumble diaz.

Diaz has the attitude of an assclown, but i still give the guy credit for talent, because he does have some.

Updated UFC 65 Fight Card Predictions

Matt Hughes vs. GSP: Should be a good, fast-paced fight; Hughes, by submission, third round

Tim Sylvia vs. Jeff Monson; Sylvia, first round KO (guaranteed)

Brandon Vera vs. Frank Mir; Toughest pick of the night: Will we see pre or post motorcycle crash Mir? Mir looked focused and ready at the weigh-ins Mir: submission, second round

Alessio Sakara vs. Drew McFedries: (originally Sakara vs. Gouveia) Sakara (Legionarius) was beat handily by Dean Lister in UFC 60 by submission but Mcfedries is a stand up fighter, somebody’s getting KTFO; Sakara, KO, second round

Joe Stevenson Vs. Dokonjonosuke Mishima: Good luck to Mishima but I think Stevenson’s got this one in the bag: Stevenson, TKO (g&p) first round

**Nick Diaz vs Gleison Tibau** My pick of the night. If Diaz is fighting I'm watching! Diaz: TKO, second round

Antoni Hardonk vs Sherman Pendergarst: Brad Imes dropped out due to an injury so my new pick is; Pendergarst, TKO (g&p), decision

Jake ‘Irish’ O'Brien Vs. Josh Schockman: Gotta go with the Irish: O’Brien, decision.

James Irvin vs Hector Ramirez: I don't know a whole lot about either of these fighters but I heard an interview with Ramirez in which he was asked who his favorite fighter was. He replied, 'Randy Couture'. That's good enough for me; Ramirez, TKO (g&p), third round

So here are the answers:
Why and Who: ND is far and away the most talented scraper I've ever seen fight. He frustates his opponents with his motion (side to side) and his footwork is exceptional. I've never seen a ND fight that I did not want to imediately replay and watch over and over. The UFC should stop f@#king around with him and try to position him for contention. He has lost a few dramatic battles (most recently to Diego Sanchez) but his opponents look like they got hit by a train. He is cocky, no doubt about it, but he's not Tito Ortiz cocky (a-hole). I know I'm all over the f@#king place here but its hard to describe such an unusual fighter like ND.

I'm curious what others think.
Nick Diaz is an awesome fighter ... he is one of the most talented guys with one of the worst records. He goes the distance with everyone even in his losses - Sherk, Diego, Karo ... and, he never gets "beat up" so to speak. He's tough, for him to come in and do the things he's done at his age, he's got my respect

Now, who will win the 2 title fights - If GSP keeps his mental game intact I believe he'll seriously take it to Matt and could not only win but dominate. I say he wins by TKO round 2

As for Monson-Sylvia, I see Monson having a very hard time with Tim's reach and Tim has no doubt worked incredibly on take down defence so I see a first or second round KO for Tim
