Camp: Nutthuggers Suck
We had our in camp fight card draft with our own specialized rules, and we need your help picking the winner. All cards are anonymous, and the guys who didn't do a write up are posted first . Instead of the usual game we came up with a way to make it fairer IMO. Instead of just picking a fighter, we pick an entire fight. That way the snake draft is fairer as well. Since the guy stuck picking last gets to pick 2 good fights in a row. We picked 10 fights with on in at least each weight class.HVY, LHVY, MWT, WWT, LWT, and FWT. You could also pick extra fights in any weight class you wanted to fill out your 10 fight card at any time. So if you wanted to select 3 WWT fights with your first 3 picks you could, but you still have to have at least one in each of the 6 weight classes we listed . In addition you could pick one catch weight/ open weight bout once you had picked at least one fight in all the other weight classes. So please do us all a favor and vote

Skill & experience vs raw power and unrivaled athleticism . Finally the question of " Who is the baddest Mixed Martial artist on the Planet" is answered!

The Main Card

Melvin " Marvelous" Manhoef vs Cung Lee at middleweight

Who is the # 1 contender to Anderson Silvas middleweight title? Who can actually stand with him?These 2-The winner of this bout will make him fight, and challenge his claim for the best standup in MMA. Will the Jiu-Jitsu truce hold? Or will the first one to go for a takedown be considered a wussy!

Chuck " The Iceman" Liddell vs Ricardo Arona at Light Heavyweight

Chuck has always had his best fight against guys who are considered grapplers. Arona has is finally in the UFC and with a cage and elbows to help him win.

Norifumi "KID" Yamamoto vs Hatsu Hioki at Featherweight

Who is the best featherweight in Japan? We will know after this battle. Maybe the winner of this fight is actually the best 145er in the world

Brian Bowles vs Miguel Torres at Bantamweight

The rematch is now for the UFC Bantamweight Title .Bowles shocked the world the 1rst time around. Torres has vowed revenge, but so did Faber. We know how that went. Was it a fluke? Or like Mike Brown is Bowles just better.

Takanori " TheFireball Kid" Gomi vs Kit Cope at lightweight

Once considered the best 155er in the world, it's best standup fighter, and it's hardest hitter vs the 4 time Muay- Thai world champ. Power punching and a granite chin vs brutal standup in every way. Who really wants to stand and throw?


Matt " The Terra" Serra vs Donald "Cowboy" Cerone at 162 lb. catchweight
Spencer ' The KING ' Fisher vs Chris Horodecki at lightweight
Goran Reljic vs Ryan "DARTH" Bader at Light heavyweight
Hayato " Mach" Sakarai vs Anthony " Rumble " Johnson at Welterweight

CARD # 4


Georges St. Pierre vs BJ Penn III

In their first meeting: a controversial split decision. In their second: the infamous grease gate scandal. But now, the two consensus top 5 p4p fighters will put all that in the past to settle their rivalry once and for all in welterweight contest. No more talk; JUST BLEED.

Rashad Evans vs Luiz Cane

Fresh off his loss to 205 pd kingpin Lyoto Machida, Rashad Evans knows he's in desperate need of a win to get back into title contention. In his way is Brazilian wrecking machine Luiz "Banha" Cane, who has tore onto the LHW scene. One seeks redemption, the other ascension to the top. Stay tuned for this one as two heavy-handed warriors prepare for battle.

Shinya Aoki vs Sean Sherk

For years, Aoki and Sherk have dominated the lightweight division on opposite sides of the earth. Fans have often wondered who would win had these two men ever collided. They will get their answer when American wrestling meets Japanese jj in what promises to be a war of technicality. Who will emerge victorious and bring their nation victory?

Frank Shamrock vs Ken Shamrock (openweight)

A story worthy of shakespeare; adopted brothers and one time closer-than-blood training partners, after years and years of jealousy, betrayal, bitterness, and bad blood will settle their score once and for all. They will lock horns in the ring until only one is left standing. Both legends of the sport, this one promises fireworks as both Ken and Frank have been waiting to get a shot at each other for a long time. Frank a middleweight, Ken a heavyweight, Ken will have a definitive size advantage; but will it be enough?

Andrei Arlovski vs Junior Dos Santos

Coming off two knock out losses, one time Heavyweight king Andrei Arlovski is in desperate need of a win to stay relevant. Fresh off two KO wins in the ufc, Junior Dos Santos wishes to continue to blaze his path of destruction in the heavyweight division. The two collosal strikers will meet on a collision course in a bout that promises a devestating knockout. With both men owning the jj credentials to back their games up, dont blink in this one.


Thales Leites vs Robbie Lawler

Styles clash as bjj wizard Thales Leites looks to rebound from back to back decision losses against devestating MFS staple Robbie Lawler. Will Leites be able to lock in a slick sub or will Lawler put his lights out?

Michael Bisping vs Frank Trigg

Michael "The Count" Bisping will look to rebound from his KO loss to Dan Henderson against the always-tough "Twinkle-toes" Trigg to get back into title contention. Trigg won't make it easy for him as the well-rounded fighters promise to put on a war for the fans.

Takeya Mizugaki vs Dominick Cruz

Mizugaki and Cruz will look to represent the bantamweight division well when they meet in a contest that will undoubtly determine who is the top contender at 135 pounds. Fresh off wins of Curran and Benevidez (respectively), both are within reach of a title shot and will put it all on the line to fight for it.

Kryzstof Soszynski vs Rameau Sokoudjou

Long-time training partners Kryzstof and Sokoudjou will put their Team Quest friendship aside to go to war for the fans in what promise to be a barn-burner. With both fighters possessing the heaviest of hands, someone is going to sleep.

Rafael Assuncao vs Josh Grispi

Hominick, Pulver, Assuncao? Young Josh "The fluke" Grispi will look to keep his winning streak alive in this opening bout of the evening. Standing in his way: the always tough rising star, Rafael Assuncao.
Stay tuned fight fans!

CARD # 5


The Main Event

Jon Fitch (19-3; 31 yrs; 6’ 0”) vs. Thiago Alves (16-4; 25 yrs; 5’ 9”) at Welterweight.
In their one previous encounter, Fitch defeated Alves by TKO, late in the 2nd round, at Ultimate Fight Night 5 in June of 2006. Both men have since gone 7-1, losing only to ‘All-World’ fighter Georges St. Pierre. The winner of this battle should be able to unequivocally claim the #2 ranking in the world, and earn “No. 1 Contender” status in the UFC.
The Main Card

Jake Shields (23-4-1; 30 yrs; 5’ 11”) vs. Jorge Santiago (21-7; 28 yrs; 6’ 1”) at Middleweight.
Shields, a contender for the Strikeforce interim Middleweight Championship, is on a 12-fight winning streak. He is the reigning EliteXC Welterweight champion, and defeated EliteXC Middleweight champion Robbie Lawlor in a Strikeforce non-title fight. Santiago is on a 9-fight winning streak, and is the reigning Strikeforce Middleweight Grand Prix champion, the World Victory Road Middleweight Grand Prix champion, and the World Victory Road Sengoku Middleweight champion.

Antonio Rogerio “Lil’ Nog” Nogueira (17-3; 33 yrs; 6’ 2”) vs. Quinton “Rampage” Jackson (30-7; 31 yrs; 6’ 1”) at Light-Heavyweight.
Since leaving Pride FC, Nogueira has virtually sleep-walked through 5 fights. Normally a submission fighter who out-works his opponents, ‘Minotoro’ has KO’d 3 people in his search for a worthy Theseus. ‘Rampage’ is a former champion of the sport’s most difficult division, the UFC’s hot-potato 205-lb championship.

Karo Parisyan (18-5; 27 yrs; 5’ 10”) vs. Brock Larson (26-2; 30 yrs; 5’ 11”) at Welterweight.
The UFC’s seemingly forgotten welterweights, the list of men who have defeated these two is a ‘Who’s Who’ of top fighters: Fitch, Alves, Sherk, St. Pierre, Condit, Sanchez.

Swing Bout (may not be televised)

Keith Jardine (14-5-1) vs. Jon Jones (9-0) at Light-Heavyweight

CARD # 9


Antonio Rodrigo Noguiera VS Randy "The Natural" Couture - A battle of legends that we will finally get to see between the former PRIDE, and former UFC intern heavyweight champion and the multiple time UFC champion in the heavyweight and light heavyweight divisions. This one's about cementing a legacy, and is a true dream-match for any long time MMA fan.

Diego "Nightmare" Sanchez VS Eddie Alvarez - Two of the most exciting young lightweights in the world battle it out to see who is the heir apparent in the lightweight division, and the next Mexican fighting legend. The pace will be furious and blinking could cause you to miss the finish so stock up on eyelid tape for this one. YES YES YES!

Nick Diaz VS Yoshihiro "Sexyama" - Are marijuana and sexyama both going to have something in common and get smoked by Diaz tonight, or will Yoshihiro use his cunning and judo to come out on top?

Matt Hughes VS Josh Koscheck - The greatest UFC welterweight of all time faces one of the best wrestlers ever to make the foray into mixed martial arts in what could prove to be a terrific display of wrestling for MMA in an all out matchup of brawn and wills.

Tito Ortiz VS Matt Hamill - It's student versus teacher as Hamill faces his former coach from The Ultimate Fighter show in Ortiz. Both men are from the same wrestling/ground and pound school of fighting so either Tito's veteran savvy gets him a win, or the younger fighter surpasses the master and beats him at his own game.

Takeshi Inoue VS Joe Warren - After taking the MMA world by surprise in his win over "Kid" Yamamoto, Warren gets to prove his mettle against another Japanese fighter and former 2-time Shooto champ "Lion" Inoue. Will Warren use his wrestling to get this to the ground, or will he choose to stand and bang with the kickboxer?

Scott Smith VS Wilson Gouveia - You would be hard pressed to find two others with as many exciting fights on their resumes' and now these two will meet in a battle of two fearless strikers. Smith loves to turn fights into wars, so will Gouveia fall into Smith's game or will he try to get this to the ground to finish it?

Kimbo Slice VS Drew McFedries - Internet sensation, and impressively bearded Kimbo Slice takes on a smaller fighter with HUGE knockout power in both hands in McFedries. Does the bearded one have a chin under there? If McFedries connects we will find out.

Hermes Franca VS Jim Miller - Two of the world's toughest lightweights square off in a battle of ground experts. Franca's big power and blackbelt level BJJ are surely of concern to Miller, but his top control game is as solid as you'll find in the LW division, and he will look to dictate the pace and GnP his way to victory.

Joey Villasenor VS Dan Miller - Two very talented middleweights get set to square off in an intriguing matchup of different styles. Villasenor will look to keep this standing and strike his way one step closer to becoming a household name, while Miller will look to control the tempo and make this a grinder of a fight which is where he's best.

You're all welcome for the greatest night of fights ever assembled, this is all for you guys

I'll take #6. Not the most headlining names, but seems to be the most evenly matched card.

If I was 50 years younger I'd kick your ass!

Hard to pick between #1 and #6, but went with #1 based on Daley vs Zaromskis alone. That's one badass match up!
