Im thinking this is his last shot at making 170 if he doesnt hell be "forced to move up". That being said i think Johnson will take it, his reach is ridiculous at WW.

If he doesn't make weight this time round he might be lucky to have a job with the UFC at all!

Silva does it again with the matchmaking. While this doesn't completely save the card, it still makes it buyable. It's no lesnar-carwin but it's better then nothing

now, onto the fight. I have Johnson with a vicious KO victory. I have a feeling Kos is gonna want to test his standup and will pay for it. Johnson is on a class of his own with that reach and power. The only way Kos takes this, maybe, if he uses his wrestling for a decision. I just don't think he will though and will pay for it. Johnson for a title shot in 2010 anyone???

i cant see the UFC firing him if he doesn't make weight. he's too big of a prospect to let strikeforce pick him up.

i like kos and aj. this is a good/scary fight for me. i want kos to win, but wouldn't mind all that much if it went the other way. kos by gnp or decision or aj by t/ko.

I would think so if he does beat Kos as definitively as some are suggesting ie Brutal KO. The casual fan will be sure to ask, how comes it took GSP 3 rounds to beat that guy? Although winner of Hardy/Swick gets next title shot.

The winner of this fight would make a better contender IMO than the winner of Hardy and Swick

Awesome fight. I guess we'll finally get to see how Rumble would do against an inferior version of GSP.

I still don't think this card is back on the same level as it was with Brock vs. Carwin, but it is a lot closer now.

Kos has a decent gastank, not sure about AJ yet... i think the best plan would be to take AJ to the deep 3rd round waters and see if he can drown him, in fact, i think that's Kos only chance

ppl love Rumbles KO power since he is so huge, but fail to realize he prob has half the gastank of true elite WWs, the prob with cutting so much imo
