Agreed...He has the most power of any fighter left....plus his cousin is Karo..You don't think this guy has tricks up his sleeve just like the "heat"...You don't train with the most talanted welterweight and not pickup a thing or too...IMO

Yes I love the match-ups as noted earlier I wanna see Nate make a big pretzel out of that loudmouth Hill.

Wiman/Manny is going to be a war-I think Manny has tho with his throws and if he is a smaller version like Karo was on Saturday then Wiman is screwed IMO.

Gray/Brandon hopefully Gray can take it to the gound and GnP out another one.

In conclusion I am really excited for these fights.

I think to set the matchups, they should've seeded the fighters and made the fights based on seedings as in a team sports tournament.

I'd seed them:

1.Joe Lauzon
2.Nate Diaz
3.Matt Wiman
4.Manny Gamburyan
5.Gray Maynard
6.Corey Hill
7.Cole Miller
8.Brandon Melendez

That would obviously set up the fights as

Lauzon vs. Melendez
Diaz vs. Miller
Wiman vs. Hill
Gamburyan vs. Maynard

My Favorites:

Kendall Grove
Andrei Arlovski
Nick Diaz
Jens Pulver
Spencer Fisher
Sean Sherk
Corey Hill


5-1 in Forum bets

I think your seeds are way off.

1. Diaz
2. Lauzon
3. Wiman
4. Maynard (tie)
4. Gamburyan
6. Miller
7. Melendez
8. Hill

You also have to look at at style match ups not just a pre seeded tournament. Because just because A beats B and B beats C doesn't mean A beats C. Also if you go to Spike TV's website you'll find that 2 of Jens' team got their picks and noone else did. Cole chose Joe and Manny chose Wiman. So, maybe Dr. Evil was taking everything into account and not just agreeing with BJ.
