I would love to see the Roger Huerta vs. Joachim Hansen matchup.

I was thinking the same thing. I figured because Huerta is such a fireplug, he'd overwhelm Hansen, but I bet both their faces would look like hamburger by the end of it.

1. Takanori Gomi vs. Hermes Franca- Franca by Gogoplata inRd 1

you are aware that a gogoplata has only been successfully executed twice in mma, right? one of them was diaz on gomi, so i doubt gomi will ever get caught with this extremely rare submission twice.
