Fights Where You Knew/Thought Your Favourite Fighter(s) Was Gonna Get Smashed.
I knew Jones was going to destroy Shogun. leading up to Jones/Bader i was hoping Bader might be able to win because of his wrestling but Jones completely dominated him. as soon as he tapped i went and made something to eat, then came back to the forum and saw "JONES VS SHOGUN!!" and just thought "Please Don't Be True" but i think i said Shogun would win for like a week or so before i finally gave into reality and said that Jones was going to maul him.

I thought Daley was going to KO nick but i like them both so i didn't really worry as much.

Probably the worst was Penn/Edgar 2. You could tell leading up to the fight that BJ wasn't all there. Whether that was a lack of motivation, a bad training camp or something else entirely I'm sure we will never know.

Another would have to be Machida/Shogun 2. Could tell from the beginning that Shogun was coming in for the kill, Machida almost looked scared. Although wasn't as bothered by this as I like them both a lot.

Got to agree with the Daley/Diaz fight, thought it was going to end in a Daley KO (may have been biased as I come from Nottingham). But props to Diaz, he looked very good.

Pretty much every Cro Cop fight in the UFC other than the Eddie Sanchez and Anthony Perosh fights. 30 seconds in and you can pretty much see that his heart & mind aren't in the fight and he's just in the cage to cash a cheque. I see that and know, just know that it's only a matter of time before he gets knocked out. Again.

Koscheck vs GSP II. I had no idea he was going to do as poorly as he did but I knew he was going to lose. I tried lying to myself that he was going to win but I never believed it.

Machida vs Rampage. I thought Machida was going to maul Rampage but Rampage actually ended up winning the fight. Granted it was a terrible decision by the judges but he won nonetheless.

Shogun vs Jones. I thought it was funny that people were actually giving Shogun a chance. Some were even complaining that he was the underdog. Shogun has nonexistent takedown defense and a terrible gas tank. No way in hell was he beating Jones.

Out of all of them, I thought Condit was going to potentially lose to Rory who had a lot of hype behind him.

Didn't though.

And I definitely thought Bendo would beat Pettis.

Fitch vs gsp.... It sucks because I still supported him through the while build up and everything, but like halfway through the first round I was just like "oh balls".

Then gsot and siver too. I thought siver was going to get wrecked, but the he put george on his ass twice in the first. Which also sucked becausei like both of them.

Shogun vs Jones was for sure number 1. I wasn't sure he was gonna get smashed but I was kind of leaning 60/40 towards Jones. But I was devestated at how extremely smashed he got.
Also worth mentioning are Alves vs GSP & second Penn vs Edgar.

I always expect Rob Emerson to get smashed and he always surprises with me with his grit, determination and ability to lose a decision.

Glass Chuck vs Franklin ... it was just inevitable, I was so pissed they let him back in the octagon for getting KOd again after his intense training on dancing with the stars.

Lesnar vs Cain also had me worried. Didn't know he would get smashed that badly in Rd 1, but I knew Cain would be his toughest fight and had a good chance of kicking his ass if he got past the initial bullrush donkeykonging.
