That would be kind of funny but not going to happen. Phan wouldn't even have won that first fight if Paige doesn't break his hand.

Blah blah broke hand what ever that broke hand wasnt stopping him from getting up from Phan pounding his face in the 1st so that is just redonkulous........And if last season taught us anything ....picks take a back seat to match making......All Kos had to do was put Marc against Dane and an easy win for team Kos but no he got cocky and went after the only loud mouth that constantly goes after Kos. Bad match making will make a team lose no matter what your picks are,.

I see this coming down to two spots with three guys

Aaron Wilkinson

Pros

- Went three rounds
- Fought the top guy
- Is a well rounded fighter
- Is an international fighter
- We Didn't see him take any damage

Cons

- Was the 6th(11th) over all pick
- May have been injured in the fight and we haven't seen it
- Has been in the back ground for the comp
- Might have trouble beating any of the guys in the next round

Marc Stevens

Pros

- Was the Top pick overall
- Has the best knock out power in the house
- Has a great wrestling pedigree
- Is one of the most experienced guys
- Took no damage in his fight
- Is the most likely of Team Koscheck to win in the next round

Cons

- Was crushed in the fight
- Dana might want a GSP/Kos WC fight (I doubt it)
- He picked his fight and lost

Sevak Magakian

Pros
- Was the third pick overall and GSP's 2nd pick
- Lost to an amazing fighter(the plant) in Brookins
- Has a big personality and a set up for the next round

Cons
- He didn't get caught he got demolished by Brookins
- He doesn't see to be as well rounded as other fighters
- I don't think he would be able to make the semi's

It's going to be a tough call I think it comes down to eliminations.

Andy Main - lost a competitive fight to a middle of the road fighter in Kyle Watson, he's also the youngest guy there so it won't be him.

Jeff Lenz
- would normally be a prospect but he didn't lose to a great fighter, he lost to a guy who's 4-2 and he was the second to last pick.

Spencer Paige - is clearly injured and won't be able to move on in the competition.

Sako/Sayers
- Both guys are fighting right before the Wild Card match, Sayers was the last pick so he's got that going against him, Sako loses he lost to the last pick.

Keep in mind the last wild card picks were Uscola and McCray and they were the 2nd and 3rd picks from Tito...so pick order does matter. Henle and Hammertree were passed over even though they came closer to winning their fights.

Personally I think Wilkinson is a lock.

Koscheck did not pick a solid team

To be honest....I think Kos picked his team on physical characteristics rather than intelligence/credentials (sans Phan). The majority of his team seems to be stiff, brutish strikers with mediocre BJJ. Wilkinson (the Brit) seemd to be the most complete fighter so far, besides Nam Phan, with striking and somewhat of a ground game

These dudes look like a bunch of Bellator rejects.

Cmon man....2 subs back-to-back on Team Kos and they claim to have been focusing on wrestling and sub defense??

Both teams did a terrible job picking teams I mean look at the pick order and look at who's out. Of the top 7 only 2 guys might make the next round. The guys in bold where picked either to high or to low.

First pick Marc Stevens
Second pick Michael Johnson
Third pick Sevak Magakian
Fourth pick Jonathan Brookins
Fifth pick Sako Chivitchian
Sixth pick Spencer Paige
Seventh pick Andy Main
Eighth pick Alex Caceres

Ninth pick Nam Phan
Tenth pick Kyle Watson
Eleventh pick Aaron Wilkinson
Twelfth pick Cody McKenzie
Thirteenth pick Jeff Lentz
Fourteenth pick Dane Sayers

To be fair I think Caceres and Cody are both fighters with huge holes in their game so it's easy to see why Kos picked guys with a solid base.

just as i predicted! 5-2 for GSP in round 1, 3-1 in the semi-final, and my guess is he'll have his 2 fighters in the final. cody mckenzie got exposed for being a 1 trick pony against pham, so im guessing kyle watson wins the show. all the undefeated fighters who came into the show lost.

i see michael johnson and nam phan being a very close fight with michael johnson winning and pham dropping to 145, and i see kyle watson beating brookins, and brookins dropping to 155. final Kyle Watson vs Michael Johnson (with Kyle Watson winning).

I haven't been impressed with Michael Johnson. I'm picking Nam in that fight. I do think Watson will beat Brookins as Brookins has relied on his BJJ and Watson should be able to nullify that.

I'd probably go with Johnson and Brookins, I don't think Kyle offers much and I think Brookins will be able to stop the fight hitting the floor
