three huge fights, some of the best match ups this year by far.

sherk vs penn,

not only a title match, but there is bad blood written all over this, will sherk have cage rust?? can penn's cardio last 5 rounds?? if the fight goes three it might just end up 5. i see sherk muscleling penn, trying to ground and pound him, while bj throws sub after sub at him. great match

silva vs jardine

silva coming off a hell of a fight with lidell now gets jardine, silva knows he needs to win, not only to stay in contention but also cause his star might be fading, jardine who i clearly think should have fought rampage next now is fighting for a title shot, with lidell fight off, simple if he wins he should get next shot. jardine might have beaten lidell but he ain't no lidell!! if lidell can't put silva away with his punches how will jardine?? if jardine sticks with same game plan as lidell he will win, stay away from knees of silva, both have knock out power i would bet my life that this fight will end with a knock out by either person

tito vs machida


machida might be one of the most underrated guys in the ufc, i think he could be fighting at 185, he is small compared to tito's size, but he is like anderson silva, he is very technical, precise, he doesn't get restless and swing away of get himself jams, machida needs to win, tito has nothing else to show, he is out, one of the biggest names in the sport and leaving the ufc is like joe montana leaving the 49ers. it just should not happen, will he find sucess out of the ufc?? where will he land?? the best 205 fighters are in the ufc, that actually might be good for him not to fight them, i am hoping tito will give his best fight in years, and go out with a bang, but i would also like to see machida win.

overall these are some great matches, which of these three are you looking forward to the most??

for me if it were just a penn vs sherk fight that is one thing, but with the grudge match maybe the worst since ken vs tito or hughes vs trigg. this fight will be the best!!

For me Is tied between sherk/penn and Jardine/silva, both very interesting matchups

Tito/machida is intersting, however its more interesting to see who wins, not so much the fight itself, since i think it will be a snooze fest (either is tito taking him down for three rounds and not finishing it, or its machida jabbing his way to a victory, however the outcome of this fight will determine alot about both fighters career.)

Sherk will beat Penn by a score similar to Franklin/Loiseau.

I don't think Sherk (or anybody) will get three 10-8 rounds against BJ.

Penn-Sherk. All the trash talk and buildup and they finally get to settle it in the Octagon.

Sherk vs. Penn is going to be an amazing fight. I haven't seen Tito fight in quite some time and he is taking on a very skilled opponent in Machida so that will be fun to watch. Jardine vs. Silva should be a fun fight to watch and I hope we see Silva get the KO.

Out of the three I can't wait tosee BJ vs. Sherk. Main reason because BJ is just so much fun to watch.

personally im looking forward to the jardine/silva fight becouse i think we may see the wanderlei we all no and love. i hope we see that man step back in and kick some ass. nothing against keith hes a game fighter and all but i wanna silva back on the winning path i dont think hes over yet. also i think he will have something to prove after three straight losses he knows hes gotta show dana somthing. as far as the sherk fight goes imo both fighters are overrated but the bad blood between them is not i see bj winnng a descion after 3 exciting rounds and 2 boring ones( now i no everyones gonna hate me for that) but the machida fight honestly i think tito wants to show dana hes making a mistake and machida really wants to show hes not overrated(not saying he is) both guys have talent but machida has technech out the ass and i see him weathering a early first round storm then comiong out with somthing sneaky 4 the win

These fights are all great but I will have to go with the McDonald's generation and say that I most want to see the Wandy Jardine fight due to the high chance of a 1st rnd KO!!! Instant satisfaction!!!!

I'm looking forward to Tito calming down all the Machida fans when he hands him that first loss!

well Sherk is absolutely no match for BJ sorry to say. i'm looking forward to seeing one of the most vicious KO's in UFC history when Wanderlei sends Jardine to the pits of hell with a right hook.

Hard to say as Sherk could turn the fight into a snooze fest same with Tito so I really want to see Jardine go toe to toe with Wand this fight I say has more potential than any of the three

for me Silva Jardine is my most anticipated fight from this PPV. Two strikers with top notch power neither too orthodox and can go all olut for three rounds. Its almost a guaranteed KO for the night, but who will it be? Very interesting matchup.

I'm always excited to see BJ fight. I'm hoping for a BJ KO of Sherk. Ppl seem to forget how possible this is. He has just about as many KO w's as sub. Sherk's standup is about on par w/ any other wrestlers. BJ is such an animal both standing and on the ground, Sherk is a worse version of guys like Hughes, This could be very one sided. Not likely to be boring.

The other two matchups are obviously great and I can't wait for the event as a whole, but they don't get me quite the way of seeing Sherk shutup.

In my opinion I don't see how anyone could say the BJ Penn is overrated. I am biased because he is one of my favorite fighters. A in shape BJ penn is the best pound for pound fighter in opinion, he is never in a boring fight, he has fought people in four different weight class,has beat some very good fighters and has never been dominated, and 9 of his 12 wins he has finished by tko or submission. Also he has held both the lightweight and welter weight ufc belts.


If you couldn't tell im looking forward to the penn vs sherk fight the most.

I'm most looking forward to Jardine and Wanderlei. Both guys love to get stuck in, so I expect and exciting fight. I'm hoping we'll finally see Wanderlei go at it like he used to back in the day, and get inside throwing bombs.

Not too excited about the Penn / Sherk fight. I love watching Penn fight, but Sherk is the epitome of boring to me, the whole LnP style doesn't make exciting fights imo, but as long as BJ doesn't let Sherk get his way it should be decent.

the fight that intrigues me the most is Machida vs Ortiz. I guarantee the other 2 fights listed are gonna be way more exciting, but it seems a little more predictable. We know for sure what the four fighters are going to do. In Machida vs Ortiz i'm seriously wondering what they are going to do. Machida has been training his takedown defense. Will Ortiz come back in old form? Machida is considered by many a babied star of UFC. Ortiz is the fading icon of UFC. It's going to be slow, but i can't wait to see the fighters show up and each of their game plans.

Tito vs Machida.

I still think Tito has it, he beat Forrest (absolutely destroyed him in the first round, should have been tko'ed), and beat Evans (Yes it was a draw, but its because he grabed the fence).

I see no reason to think he doesn't have it anymore. Its just that back in the day competition was weak, so Tito could just rip people apart. Nowadays its tougher, so Tito's matches are competetive. Forrest and Evans are top 10 (top 12 mayube for Evans) guys, and Tito can't just be expected to tear them to shreads...he won, thats what matters.

I think Machida will beat him, but I know Tito can beat Machida as well...

Im looking forward to all of the 3 main fights, mainly because they could all go either way.

I reckon Penn, Machida and Jardine will win, although i wouldn't be surprised if any of them lost.

Hopefully the fights will live up to the expectation.
