After watching that first fight, I can tell that there are going to be some brutal fights in the future. There will probably be quite a bit of injuries and concussions. Even though I am a proud american I do believe the Brits are going to do far better in this competition. Espescially after Nick's win, starting off the elimination fights with a head kick KO. Both my picks are from the UK Team.

My Early Picks to win:

WELTERWEIGHT: David Faulkner - He was originally training to represent Britain in the 2012 olympics for judo. His submissions are sick, and works out at the wolfslair, where he has worked with some of the best.

LIGHTWEIGHT: Ross Pearson - He reminds me of a 155 pound version of Wanderlei Silva. He absolutely destroyed that first guy he fought. His ground game is probably the best out of the lightweights and is one of the tougher guys on the team.

I like how the keep making the Brits seem like the underdogs. The problem with that is I think the US talent pool has been all picked over but the Brits are a new pool to pick from.


WW - Demarques Johnson

LW - Ross Pearson


I was also so happy to see them show Bisping watching millers fight and putting a game plan into effect. Much more interesting then who peed on my fruit. I think that showing the trainingwill give the causual fan a better understan ding of the sport.

WW - DaMarques Johnson or Dave Faulker. Depends on whether Dave can preform under the pressure.

LW - Andrea Winner or Ross Pearson. I feel Ross is slightly better overall, but if he gets into a kickboxing match with Winner he'll probably loose.

Dent and Faulkner

Pearson I'm saying will be a finalist

DeMarques Johnson and Andre Winner, just form their prelim fights I thought they were the most impressive, but lets not forget how good junie and david kaplan looked in their preliminary fights, should be interesting, this is one of the tougher seasons to call.

The UK is going to dominate at LW. Lawson, Pearson, and Winner are all really close in terms of talent. Winner defeated Lawson previously, but I think Jeff is going to take LW.

At WW, it was destined to be Che Mills, who was shockingly submitted by a heel hook. Anyone who has seen Che fight, knew he had legit skills to be in the UFC. Now, I would probably lean towards the good ol' US of A's DaMarques.

I'm not sure about welterweight, but my pick for Lightweight would be Lawson.
