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 motorcyle crash Mir? Although Vera has impressed alot of people, I'm not one of them.
Mir: Submission, second round
  • Alessio Sakara vs Wilson Gouveia
Gouveia recently had a win over Wes Combes in UFC 62 taking his record to 7-4-0. Sakara (Legionarius) was beat handily by Dean Lister in UFC 60
Gouveia: By submission, round one
  • **Nick Diaz vs Gleison Tibau**
My pick of the night. If Diaz is fighting I'm watching!
Diaz: TKO, second round
  • Brad Imes vs Antoni Hardonk
I konw nothing about Hardonk, but I do know that Imes is a big sum b*@ch.
Imes: KO, third round
  • 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 (ground), third round

Eh, why not?

Matt Hughes vs Georges St. Pierre.

GSP by split decision.

I normally wouldn't see this fight going 5 full rounds, but seeing how Hughes survived a vicious onslaught by Penn, I see him surviving Georges offense. GSP won't make the same stupid mistake again.

Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson.

Sylvia by second round KO.

Yea, so I'm giving Monson the benefit of the doubt. He'll get battered throughout the first, and finally be put to sleep by Big Tim. I like Monson, but the reach is just way too much here.

Brandon Vera vs Frank Mir.

Vera by TKO second round.

Mir will gas. Vera will capitalize.

Alessio Sakara vs Wilson Gouviea.

Sakara by unanimous decision.

Gouviea will fade away as the rounds go by. I seriously don't care about either guy, but I see Sakara pulling off the D.

Nick Diaz vs Graison Tibau.

Nick Diaz by TKO round 3.

Diaz is a guy who is not afraid to oppose his will. He uses his reach to his advantage, and is great on the ground. I see Tibau being overwhelmed in the third.

Brad Imes vs Antoni Hardonk.

I seriously don't care.

Ditto for the James Irvin fight.

Nick Diaz

When I tell people that Nick Diaz is my favorite fighter they usually respond with, 'why?' or 'who's Nick Diaz?'

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.

He's in the wrong weight class. He's not going anywhere anytime soon in the welterweight division. GSP/BJ Penn/Matt Hughes will all crush him. Karo and Diego will probably beat him over and over again, and Jon Fitch and Josh Koshcheck are just as good as he is. Sucks to be nick diaz.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

I think he's got a chance at lightweight, if he can make weight.

I also think lightweight is his only chance for a title shot. I like ND but he's in the wrong place at the wrong time. LW would be his but I believe Ken Flo would give him a good fight to start at.

Matt Hughes vs GSP
Hughes: By submission, fourth round unless GSP can pull a miracle out of his a$$.

Tim Sylvia vs Jeff Monson
Sylvia: First round KO unless Monson pulls a miracle out of his a$$. Were talking bibilical here for Monson to win this match!

Brandon Vera vs Frank Mir
Vera: First round knockout. Mir will most likely retire after this! Hate to see it but if he can't get his crap together he will never get his belt back!

Alessio Sakara vs Wilson Gouveia
Sakara: Submission in the second round

Nick Diaz vs Gleison Tibau
Diaz: Second Round Knockout

Brad Imes vs Antoni Hardonk
Hardonk: Knockout in the third

James Irvin vs Hector Ramirez
Ramirez: Knockout in the first

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I agree. Also conditioning is a factor. It's noticable with ND, when he's in excellent shape or somewhat less. For instance when he fought Robbie Lawler compared to when he fought Diego Sanchez.
