Walking paper for Sexy?


Every time I think that Marquardt has it in the bag, he gets tooled. I don't know what to think anymore.

I think I might pick Akiyama because I'm not really a believer in Nate anymore.

Its not a title fight or a #1 contender fight. I think the UFC must hate Sexy hes the only guy who gets tougher matches after a loss.

I agree. I'll probably go with him anyway though. Oh, and the UFC must really dislike Akiyama.

I think Nate will take this one. He will have a fire under his ass after Dana White's recent criticism of his performance against Okami. Marquardt will definitely be coming out looking to finish Akiyama.

At least he better. The way things have been lately I can see The Great getting The Cut if he loses. He is 1-2 in his last three......

Nate should win this...but if he doesn't he should be reduced to an undercard fight, Sexy however may be getting his walking papers for sure.

Nate should be able to take this however he wants. Akiyama puts on great fights and I love him for that. But in the UFC he's 1-2, and I think he lost the one win he did get. This should put the nail in the coffin for yosihiro, especially if Nate finishes it like I think he will.
