What is your upset pick of the night?

Let me know, your upset pick of the night.

If you are not picking any of the dawgs, just let me know who you think has the best chance.

I only put them on the poll if they are 2/1 or more on bet365..
Pete Sell, Marcus Aurelio, Rich Clementi and Thiago Alves were all lower than 2/1, so I've left them off the poll.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

2007

I think if there's going to be an upset, it'll be Dos Santos over Werdum, just because I'm really not confident in Werdum's conditioning for this fight.

Tyson Griffin


although I don't really understand why he is the underdog. He seems to be to be the better all around MMA fighter.

I think Griffin was a bad idea for Sherk coming back from a loss to BJ

Not only that, people are really overlooking Dos Santos because they've simply never heard of him.

If you look at the guy and his credentials, not only is he in great shape and very large, hes the Brazilian Muay Thai Heavyweight champion with an 18-0 record, a BJJ black belt, and trains with the Noguiera's and Silva at black house.

Werdum is one of my favourite heavyweights, but Dos Santos is being seriously overlooked and has the best chance on the entire card for the upset.

I had Werdum by submission, but I've changed to Dos Santos by UD, should be a very interesting fight.

Really? It's pretty obvious to me at least that he's the underdog cause he's fighting the former LW Champ whose only losses have come to 3 of the best WW ever (GSP/Hughes/BJ), with way more experience. There's no doubt Tyson is skilled, and he'll give Sherk a tough fight but when you compare their credentials it is really quite clear why he is the underdog in this fight.

I'd have to go with Dos Santos, I don't know if it was just me or did Werdum look a bit pudgier than usual at the weigh ins? I got a feeling that if he did look over Santos and not do a full camp in preparation...he's going to regret it by tomorrow.

I went with Griffin over Sherk b/c I really hope he pulls it off. While I think dos Santos will be a bigger challenge for Werdum than some are anticipating I am hoping Werdum pulls off the win b/c I want to see him get a title shot.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21
