Houston Alexander has something coming to him, he probablly thinks he's the best in the world right now. People say there is no lucky wins, but I believe that win was pure luck. Sakara will make him look like a chump with his crisp technical striking.

Yeah because he was throwing loads of wild, ugly punches. Sakara has good boxing. rushing and throwing sloppy swings wont catch Alessio if he is on his game.


The Main card has some serious potential I think, I want to see Rampage destroy Hendo, and Cro Cop destroy Kongo. I think Rampage should be able to beat Hendo, and Cro Cop will mash Kongo. I wouldnt want to be Kongo right now, thats for sure!

I really enjoy both Hendo and Jackson, but I am rotting for Jackson in this one. Not only because I think he is a more dominant fighter, but I like him as a champion. He is good for the UFC. Besides, Hendo already has another title!

I can't wait to see Anthony Johnson and Houston Alexander make there encore performances. Kongo is gonna beat Cro Cop. I know it's a longshot, but I see him doin it. I'm willin to take bets!

i would wanna see hendo vs anderson silva.....afterall hendo is still the middle weight champ (welterweight in pride), but yea i wanna see bisping KO matt hammill, i dislike matt, he is cocky like tito sayin his wresteling is the best........nways kongo vs cro cop, exciting match, cant see this fight goin to decision, both being stand up fighters coming from kickboxing......cro cop for this one, i think alexander will loose for sure...

the only thing im worried about cro cop is the clinch, kongo seems to have a decent clinch and he has long legs,,,,,,,,

Looking at those pictures both Bisping and Hamill should be fighting at 185, they're the only ones in the whole event that aren't cut.

Gonna be a good card, like someone already said all of these fights have a good chance of finishing by KO.

I disagree dude, they are not that far apart in terms of striking skills, watch CC VS Aerts to see CC suffer at the hands of a top kickboxer, Kongo could beat him with those kicks to the body

Oh and this card is easily better on paper than UFC 70 was and im SURE it will prove to better afterwards as well

Main event is better
Kongo CC is better than AA Werdum on paper
Bisping fight is much better also
Houston Sakara beats the Machida fight also imo

R U KIDDING... U think he was throwing sloppy punches, every punch hit jardine's chin, every punch was powerful and it looked smooth, they were not sloppy punches at all! I say Alexander 1st KO!!!

Rampage 3rd KO
Cro Cop 2nd KO
Bisping 2nd KO/TKO

Alessio inst as cut as his picture makes him out to be and in his last fight was way out of shape and looked terrible physiclly but hopefully will come in shape this time and will use his superrior boxing skills to put down Alexander in the first round.

Are u kidding me Alexander was just winging punches wildly with jardine against the cage and hit Jardine very hard but they didnt look smooth at all, not to mention he had some of the worst footwork ive ever seen And was dropped by Jardine with one punch, Alessio's boxing is top notch compared to Houstons he will pick him apart easily and knock him out in the first or early second.

They updated the pics on ufc.com with Rampage and his new belt and Hendo copying his stance

This such a great main card, im so happy we get to see it LIVE for a change and all you yankydoodles will have to wait 5 hours to see the 1st ever unification fight, we are so lucky getting such big fights here, fight of the night will be Kongo CC tho fo sho!

Shame its still so long until 74 then just a 2 week gap until this, i wanna see what the wager odds will be etc

I hope Rampage wins, i think it kind of sucks when the belt keeps getting passed around.

Cro Who? Was supposed to be such a dominant fighter when he came from Pride. He's barely hanging in there from what it looks like.

Watch some of Crocop's fights before you say that hes an amazing fighter he just didnt take Gonzaga seriously and got caught in a great gameplan. Crocop will be back and will be impressive against Kongo its a same hes going to have to fight and lose to Nog after and not get his title shot though.

You do know Mirko beat Aerts right? He also beat Bonjasky(same size and a better striker then kongo), as well as sapp(bigger more agressive and hits harder), not to mention Lebanner and Bernardo. The reason I think Mirko will win is because kongo keeps his hands apart and around chest level, he's also slower then Mirko and not as dynamic on his feet. In the clinch he is dangerous but he's training with bonjasky, who's incredible with knees, and the clinch so....

Whoops i meant Hoost not Aerts, they were mainly body punches and CC just didnt love them, so it seems shots to the body could be a good way for Kongo to win, i will be picking CC but do think Kongo has a very good chance, he shouldnt be as bigger dog as GG was really, id say its 60/40 really

The Sakara Houston fight is too tough to call cos i just dont know enough about Houston, yeah he looked good beating Jardine but how will he fair against a smaller quicker boxer? Having said that Sakara may be too small and he seems to not like getting hit so im swaying towards Houston

I just think it would be nice to see Rampage throw out a damn powerbomb. Don't think it'll happen against Henderson but I can always dream.

I just wanted to tell you something, more of a how smart hoost is thing, Mirko came into that fight with severly injured ribs, hoost being the master tactician he is keyed on his ribs. Either way theres Hoost is on a totally different level then kongo, hoost is probly in the top 3 of all time best kick boxers. I think kongo's best chance to win is on the ground.
