I was looking over my picks for this weekend's UFC 78, and I realized that I really want to see every single fight on this card, darn it.

Naturally, we're only guaranteed to see four of them on the pay-per-view broadcast, but we'll more than likely get 5. I guess there's a small chance we'll get 6, but not likely.

So... If it were up to you, which 5 fights would you choose to see live?




My choices...

Main Event: Rashad Evans vs. Michael Bisping - wouldn't miss this one

Main Card:
Ryo Chonan vs. Karo Parisyan - Chonan should be dangerous at 170
Houston Alexander vs. Thiago Silva - could be over in 9 seconds, one way or the other
Frankie Edger vs. Spencer Fisher - you have to go 12-15 fighters deep to find an uninteresting matchup in the '55 division

Swing Bout: Ed Herman vs. Joe Doerksen - don't underestimate Doerksen

Undercard:
Joe Lauzon vs. Jason Reinhardt - Reinhardt's 18-0, but against "no-names"
Akihiro Gono vs. Tamden McCrory - Gono fights to a lot of Decisions
Thiago Alves vs. Chris Lytle - the toughest choice

UFC Jeopardy question of the day:

Answer: Diego Sanchez, Paulo Filho, Georges St. Pierre, Dan Henderson, Phil Baroni, and Ricardo Ameida.

Question: Who are the 6 fighters to have defeated Karo Parisyan and Ryo Chonan in the last 4 years? That spans 22 total fights, incidentally.

your list is exactly what i would want to see, but every fight on the card is intriguing to me and im hoping none go to decision so we can see as many as possible on ppv so i dont have to dig em up online.

LOL WTF Dude you have picked the exact card as it is already

But you missed out the Aurellio fight, i just thought this thread would be making the point there are some good prelims we wanna see over the main card but i guess you are happy with it as it is, im like a few of the other guys here and think id rather see the Alves Lytle fight over the Herman Doerksen fight tbh

I'd much rather see the Alves/Lytle fight then Doerksen/Herman Alves/Lytle deserve to be on the main card more in my opinion.

Dude why the hell would you choose that lop sided quick beatdown over the Alves Lytle fight!!!!!!!! im shocked that anyone would do that, thats the 2nd last fight i wanna see tbh

The Gono McCrory fight will really good as well so fingers crossed we see that

Really only 1 prelim will be shown, if that! All the main card fights go long in my view

Lucky me, then.

But you missed out the Aurellio fight[...]


You're right, I did. I'd put that on the undercard. I've never been impressed with Aurelio.

i just thought this thread would be making the point there are some good prelims we wanna see over the main card[...]


Yes. You don't think that point was made? I thought I was pretty concise.

Yeah, that's the decision I had the hardest time making. It was something of a mental coin toss, in the end.

Nope. And definately not concise
Key word in my quote being "over". You did the exact opposite and listed the main card as wanting to be main card and the prelims as wanting to be prelims Youre right though, lucky you
I meant having a prelim shown INSTEAD of one of the existing main card fights, i thought that the majority decision would be to see the Alves fight over the Herman fight tbh
