Nyet, Wandy makes for exciting fights every time he steps into the ring/octagon. I don't see him ever being put on the undercard. Not like he's Fitch or something.. lol

Favorite fighters:
BJ Penn
Nogueira Bros
Anderson Silva
Lyoto Machida
Demian Maia
Andrei Arlovski

You can't really count Wands old fights from back in what? 2000?

For all intensive purposes, Wand is new to the UFC.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

This is not exactly my point, and Fitch is a great fighter. Wanderlei will never be put on the undercard no matter what happens next. He's still an icon and I'd like to see him fighting (Liddell vs Silva was awesome) even if he loses to Jackson. Although, for some reason I am certain that Wanderlei is not that strong mentally, it takes a lot to come back after 3 huge loses to people who rapidly fall down in terms of ratings themselves(Cro Cop, Liddell and even Henderson to some degree). Very few fighters can do that, but all the others like Hughes, Liddell, Cro Cop and Sylvia fall into obscurity and never come back. Maybe this Saturday Wanderlei will prove me wrong but that's how I see it.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

Rampage has proven he can outstrike the striker but because the two previous loses will be in his head he should take him to the ground but I think Rampage will win based solely on recent track record. Wandy has only won 1 of 4. I'm looking for Mir to bring the upset, I think we are going to see the best Frank Mir ever. I wouldn't put money on it though. Rashad is going to destroy Forrest. Their hands are about equal, but Rashad is much faster and Stronger. Rashad has not shown much in the way of submission skills so I'll give that to Forrest. I think Rashad's Wrestling will negate it though. This fight comes down to two evenly skilled fighter but Rashad's Athletisim will win the day.

Did you see the Chuck and Jardine fights? With Chuck he stood there and took a ton of punishment throwing back at the Iceman, something few have ever done-the exceptions I know being Ramp and Sugar. Then he beat Jardine down like he slept with his wife and sister at the same time. The untested weak one will be Rampage. He lost the title and cried like a baby about it, went on a rampage(pun intended) wth his huge truck, and changed camps. If all that doesn't make someone wonder about how mentally tough he is I don't know what does.

Villian, glad too see trolls still hang around this board.

Rashad is not stronger than Forrest, and if he plays the clinch game he's going to be outmuscled by the much larger man.

Dude are you kidding Evans is only 5'11 and Forrest is 6'3. Forrest comes in ripped and heavy as ever. I really dont see Evans being able to control Forrest that well in the clinch simmply because of the height issue.

Not to mention its a title fight which means Evans wont be allowed any room to have his weight even slightly above Forrests on weigh in day and that does have an impact regardless of how much he puts on beofre the fight.

Even if Evans was stronger than Forrest. Forrest would be able to use is lanky body to shift and make controlling the clinch tough for Rashad.
