Lol Akiyama lost to Leben then he gets Bisping he loses to Bisping he gets Vitor, if he loses to Vitor he will get Anderson Silva This makes sense but not logically.

For his sake, i hope Greg Jackson has Aki fighting the way he should, with his strengths. If he shows up and dosen't go full retard headhunter, and actually, i don't know, uses his Judo, he could make it a good fight. if not its gonna be another fun to watch 3 round boxing show.

special thanks to
Matt Hughes
Rashad Evans
Shane Carwin
Anderson Silva
and of course Gray Maynard

NPFFL: JDS, Bisping, Rampage, Kampmann

Very strange matchup. Why not Give Sexy a break? & why not just put Belfort against Bisping?

Does this imply that Sonnen and Bisping are likely being matched up?

I wouldn't call it a bad match-up exactly. Sexy can win if he turns this in to a judo match and dislocates Belforts shoulder.

Quite frankly, both men have to prove something here. Let's see what happens if Belfort's hands don't get a Rd 1 KO and it goes the distance.

Vitor may not have won a MW fight in the UFC but regardless, he is coming off a title fight and Akiyama shouldn't really be fighting him, he's lost his last two fights but a win over Vitor would propel him strongly.

Not saying I think he'd beat Vitor, but Akiyama has more to gain from this than Vitor does, undeservedly.

Judging by Akiyama's showing in the UFC so far, he is not going to be able to handle the striking of Belfort. He hits too hard and too fast...

On the other hand, we really haven't seen much of Belfort for a while. He was waiting for the Silva fight for a long time, and then we didn't see very much from him in that fight either due to the death kick.

If the Belfort that fought Franklin shows up, Akiyama is getting KO'd.
