Fedor- Age: 31
Silva- Age: 33
C.B.- Age: 24

My point is C.B. is still very young (especially for an MMA fighter), and on top of that, he isn't even a dick; he's just pretty cocky. C.B. still has a lot of learning to do and he isn't even in his physical prime so he can only get better...unless someone cripples him

Amir is some inexperienced muay tai fighter that dished out arm bars, triangles and brutal knock outs on TUF. Of course he'll get more fans. Not to mention he's humble, actually lacks confidence and has no cocky traits at all.

That said, I think with the necessary preparation and proper cardio CB will control the fight and get the decision.

Amir appears to have more raw talent considering how inexperienced he is, in a couple of years I think he could be something special. He just needs a good cap to go to.

I still really like Amir, and if he wins I won't be too upset because I like both of them. I just wanted to publicly state that I am a true C.B. fan, so when he wins on Saturday and all of the ban wagoners are jumping on, you guys know who was with him from his HD Net fights.

And if Amir wins, I will most likely sound really stupid. I got to agree with you guys though, Amir is probably more like-able than C.B. is.

Fedor is 31 now, he wasn't cocky when he started either, when he beat Nog and became Pride HW champion which is a lot more than what CB has done, he was 26.

I really don't think CB is that cocky of a fighter. Of course when you compare him to Amir, he looks like the cockiest fighter in the whole world. He just seems real confident to me, he doesn't seem to degrade his opponents, I've seen 100 times worse from other UFC fighters.

CB is a wrestler who when faced with a threatening fight, will take it down, bury his head in the guys chest, and grind out a UD.

Amir isn't anything yet, which means he does a bit of everything....and he's fun to watch.

No brainer who im rooting for.

Demian Maia may be the Fred Astaire of jiu-jitsu, but it’s too bad Silva is the Gene Kelly of kicking everyone’s ass.

I'm going to go out on a limb and say that I will never be on CB's bandwagon, win or lose the finale. Like everyone else is saying, he's got a crappy attitude and needs to be brought back down to earth. Getting armbarred by Amir should have taught him a little bit but he doesn't seem to be bothered by it.

As for Amir, in no way am I saying that he'll be a champ but he's a great guy to root for. He's kinda silly looking, a lot of the things he does in the octagon are sloppy, he is just different from the norm (reminds me of a goaltender). With that said, the guy doesn't know the meaning of the word quit and is extremely humble. He slugs, he works for subs, pretty much an all around exciting fighter to watch.

If I had to pick which bandwagon I would be on, I'd be on Amir's win or lose.

I know that a lot of people are on the fence about C.B., but let me plead my case here.

I don't like him, I never will. Unless of course he gets one of those brain tumors that can't be removed and because you have it in a certain part of the brain it completely changes your personality. You know, that kind of tumor.

He refers to himself in 3rd person and is WAY too cocky. Strike one.

He really doesn't mind a lay n pray fight. Strike two.

He has a squishy face. Strike three.

For a few MMA fans, sportsmanship and positive character hold little value. To many others, however, these are as defining and important as the skill displayed in the cage or ring. A balance of these defining characteristsics are the ingredients necessary to become a "beloved champion" vs just a "champion".

Although I enjoy watching great fighters, if they lack sportsmanship and class, I almost ALWAYS find myself hoping they get destroyed by their opponent. Simple case of good vs evil. CB has yet to demonstrate good sportsmanship. And that's being nice.
