I think both finals are amazing match ups and there are some really interesting matchups in both Grand Prix's for me, overall i preferred the BIG HW match ups that Trollking has gone for, especially in the later rounds and that was my reason for voting for Trollking.
2/9/11 3:36:34PM
I really like both cards, but i think Trollking edges it out with the main event

A lot of these match-ups, on both sides, seem pretty one sided on paper, but Silva vs. Machida is a fight that I would give my left nut to see happen. De facto, that's going to get my vote.

Close Match. The Match-ups were tit for tat in terms of compelling.

Achilles Heel -
1. Rampage v. Anderson
2. Brock v. Machida
3. Anderson v. Machida
4. Anderson v. Lil Nog (think he'd beat couture)
5. Rampage v. Gonzaga

TrollKing -
1. Fedor v. Velasquez
2. JDS v. Velasquez
3. Fedor v. Carwin
4. JDS v. Kharitonov
5. Fedor v. Barnett.

In the end i go with Achilles, as Rampage and Machida are personal favorites and the competitiveness throughout the tournament is just a tad-bit higher. All the favorites still have tough Match-ups. Where Fedor gets Rothwell, Anderson Silva gets Mitrione, and that match-up is still tough as hell for Anderson Silva.

I give it to TK by a very narrow margin for cleaning out the HW division.

Achillesheel advances to the final 11-8.
