Nice. One of the few "zombie threads" I approve of. It's interesting to see people's picks, 5 months later. HW:
Fedor isn't a UFC fighter - yet - so I'm not going to pick him. Meanwhile, I can't believe no one's picked Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
. Shame on you people.
I think he'll run over Herring and then get a title shot (because Arlovski's title shot has been taken away); and I think he can take either Couture or Gonzaga. I don't think Cro Cop will get back into title contention before the end of the year. LHW:
Dan Henderson is legit, no question, but I'm still going to pick Rampage Jackson
. He could have another title defense before the end of the year - in a New Year's Eve show, maybe? - but I don't know who it would be. Maybe Liddell again. Maybe Tito. I think only those three guys can give him a fight right now. Rashad can beat Tito, but I think he'd get beat up by Rampage. MW:
I haven't completely made up my mind, but I'm leaning towards Anderson Silva
defending his belt against Marquardt and Franklin. WW:
The poster up the page is entirely correct - it has to be one of the Matts, simply due to logistics. I'll be pulling for Serra to win, but I think Matt Hughes
will regain the hardware in time for the holidays. LW:
I don't see anyone beating B.J. Penn
this year, and maybe not next year, either (yes, I think he's that good). Bonus Pick - WEC FW:
I'm already looking forward to Jens Pulver giving it a go, but I think Urijah Faber
's wrestling will be too much for him. Bonus Pick - TUF 6:
Without knowing any of the other contestants, former KOTC champion Mac Danzig
has to be a top contender, even at 170 lbs.
