who are your favorites tel?
I'm thinking of doing the same thing.
I haven't made my picks yet for the event, but I know some right now.
I have Chuck by knock out. Probably in the 2nd round, maybe 1st.
I see Shogun beating on Forrest for 3 rounds, but only because Forrest has a lot of heart.
My other thoughts at this point . . .
Fitch vs. Sanchez: Should be a war. I'll have to give it more research to make a pick. Normally I'd pick Sanchez, but he had such a terrible showing against Koscheck. Then again he had a staph infection at the time too . . .
KazNak vs. Machida: Machida is very good fighter, but he hasn't really fought top competition in his weight category. Nakamura is a very skilled judoka whose lackluster record can be attributed to his fighting top competition. I mean he's lost 6 matches. Twice to Big Nog (top 3 HW in the world) with one by decision. Once due to injury to Dan Henderson the former simultaneous LHW and MW champion of Pride. Once to Wanderlei Silva, a Pride superstar. Once to Josh Barnett, considered by many to be Fedor's top challenger. And once by decision to Shogun Rua, a serious Pride star. Now I am biased a bit toward grapplers, but preliminary research has me leaning toward KazNak.
Thiago Tavares vs. Tyson Griffin: Thiago seems like the more complete fighter to me (maybe it's his early childhood judo
). Griffin seems like a hard-hitting wrestler (which isn't a bad thing). Early research has me leaning toward Thiago.
I'll have to do a lot more research to pick the other fights. Though I kinda like Omigawa of course (judoka), plus Wiman had trouble with Manny Gamburyan (another judoka) on TUF.
