Why no Palhares? He's been looking like a great up and comer with potential and it probably adds alot that he's built like a brick shithouse.

And IMO he doesn't have the power to make up for a lack of technical prowess, Rothwell said he has pillow-hands.

He might not, but it still worked and he made Ben look like a newbie in that fight.

He's an honorable mention. He's good but 2009 was a slow year for him, he had an 11-month layoff and his big win was a decision over Horn about a year ago. Maybe next year he'll make the list if he's more active.

Pretty nice Top 5 there. Some good young prospects in the UFC. Who do you reckon'll prove themselves to be the most promising fighters into 2010? I'd go for:

Jon Jones
Junior Dos Santos
Paul Daley
Jake Ellenberger
Cain Velasquez

Jake Ellenberger's impressed me alot. Looked really good on his UFC debut against Condit, and was very good at 108, dominating Mike Pyle. Think he's going to have a very good year in 2010. Jon Jones is an easy pick also, incredible talent. To dominate a guy like Matt Hamill like he did was just superb. Gonna be a quality fighter if he continues to develop.

He was getting picked apart on the feet and doing so little on the ground... just pitter-patter punches. Ben gassed SO bad too, I don't see how we can consider him a quality opponent. I want to see Velasquez vs Yvel honestly.

And we all know it was an AWFUL stoppage. Rothwell has no visible damage, if he hadn't gassed who knows how the fight would have ended.


I'm waiting for at least one great, dominant victory over a top guy before Velasquez earns the hype he has.

Credit bet that Nog wins? If Nog wins, you give me 15k credits, if Valesquez wins... I give you the title to my cars? hahaha


Really though he has no chance in this fight and I'll credit bet ya whatever you want. Agreed though that Australia is beautiful.

I thought you'd at least be happy I put Cain behind JDS

15k lol come on khov I only have like 28k titel to youre cars? What do you mean by that

It will definitely be a very close fight, but I am confident in Cain that he can beat Nog! Antonio is washed up, he can still give us exciting fights but won't beat a top contender like Cain, Mir or JDS anymore. I think his time is over and this fight will show it to the world.
