Booker DeRousse vs. James Wade

Pat Benson vs. Dave Lehr Cochran

Scott Ventimiglia vs. Lucas Lopes

Tyron Woodley vs. Sal Woods

Jesse Finney vs. Josh Baumgartner
Both are supposed to be decent, Baumgartner more so.

Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante vs. Mike Kyle
Cavalcante might be a star on the rise, Kyle is a shitbag of the highest order.

Phil Baroni vs. Joe Riggs
I'm going with Riggs even though Baroni isn't the chump that he once was. Should be a brawl but Riggs is better standing and on the ground - and cardio wise, which may be the most important.

Kevin Randleman vs. Mike Whitehead
I've not seen much of Randleman recently other than his ridiculous infection that nearly took his leg off. That said, Whitehead isn't good enough to beat anyone of any note, so he won't.

Andrei Arlovski vs. Brett Rogers
This should be an easy night for Arlovski, glass chin and all.

Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith
Diaz is just too good for Smith. He's a smarter striker, better on the ground and more experienced against top class opposition.


Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Shields
I see Lawaler getting the KO.

A decent card all in all - at first glance it's hanging onto the 'names' of guys the UFC let go, but Lawler, Arlovski, Diaz, Smith and Riggs are decent guys, the first three being top 10's.

The pre-lims though, jeez. I had to sherdog all but Baum.


EDIT: Just looked up the odds and Diaz/Arlovski are ridiculously favoured.

Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante vs. Mike Kyle

I hope Cavalcante/Randleman is a fight Strikeforce puts together in the future.

Phil Baroni vs. Joe Riggs

He's the best EVAH. I'm hoping his drop in weightclass will help him out. The guy's got tons of heart, hard to root against him, even though he's a dick.

Kevin Randleman vs. Mike Whitehead

Honestly, this is less like who I think will win than who I want to win. Much respect for Randleman. I want to see him come back strong from the staph infection/other injuries.

Andrei Arlovski vs. Brett Rogers

He's one of the best heavyweights there is. Rogers is a cool dude, and I hope he can come back after this loss.

Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith

Diaz doesn't get knocked out, and he's got better boxing than Smith.

Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Shields

Don't care much for this fight. But I see Shields winning via submission.

Wow, we suck at predictions.

Diaz/Smith sounds like FotY candidate, so I need to get hold of it.

Best news is Carano vs Cyborg!

I should have put up a WEC prediction thread up too.

Speaking on that, FABER vs. BROWN II totally lived up to the hype. The entire card was great - from start to finish. (Aldo is a beast!)

I didn't get to see STRIKEFORCE, but I did read the play-by-play on sherdog this morning. Nothing really surprised me from that card other than the BRETT ROGERS finish of ANDREI.... which was what I was actually hoping for.

I wasn't surprised about Rogers whatsoever. Maybe how quick it ended, but not the fact that Glass Joe Arlovski was put to bed early.

Arlovski's jaw must have got a lot worse over the year, when he was at the top of the game he didn't seem quite so bad, and I don't think hes coming across 'better' strikers.

Need to get a hold of the WEC show... sounded great.

Anyone pick Brown? Was he the favourite going in?

Watched Strikeforce - lawler got sloppy, he had that fight won. Diaz/Smith was good but not as good as it could have been. Smith is just wild and sloppy. Diaz through an insane number of punches.

Time for some UFC 99 prediction thread action!
