Now that Schafer is off the ufc 71 card and is being replaced with Alan Belcher who do you think takes it.

I think Belcher takes this by probably a Unanimous Decision or maybe a Ko/tko late, but he is taking the fight on short notice and Salmon is a good wrestler so he may lay and pray him to a decision.

What do you think?

IMO, Salmon still takes it. Belcher is 185 and is fighting a very good wrestler at 205. I see Salmon taking this by a unanimous decision or maybe a submission if Salmon brings the perfect game plan.

i dunno but Belcher's last KO was similar to the KO Rashad put on Salmon..

I think Salmon will be open to that kick again being a wrestler and all...wrestlers always have their heads exposed looking for a takedown.

the only way i see Belcher winning is by KO or sub ...i dont think he will win by decision

I'm giving it to Salmon, just because hes fighting a smaller guy whos taking the fight as a late replacement.

Salmon looked good in the first round against Evans and dominated him with ground and pound so I'll go with him to win a decision. Plus training with Rich Franklin and Jorge Gurgel has to have helped his all around game.

Im going with Salmon by sub in round 2. I think he was hanging right in there with Rashad until he got caught.

Salmon is too good of a wrestler to lose to like Belcher. Salmon will dominate by decision.

Salmon takes this probably by decision. He could pull of a sub, but he definitely has the advantage over Belcher who's taking the fight on short notice and is a natural MW.
