you really think so? i dont think it would be too crazy, but what game plan do you think he'll utilize, do you think silva is worse off on his back?

Personally I can't wait to see Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans. I beat that will be a heck of a throw down. Im betting my money on Tito Ortiz.

I am more than excited for so many of these bouts. Tito vs. Sugar, Big Nogs debut, 2 championship bouts, the return of the Stephan "I use Roids and still lose" Bonnar, Bocek's debut it is riddled with excitement. Can't wait.

Predictions for the night.
Silva KO's Marquardt for KO of the night.
Big Nog grabs submission of the night.
Bocek vs. Edgar steals the show as a prelim fight for Fight of the Night.


Oh ya and Tito vs. Shad will be a memorable war. I want to see rashad win and think he can but Tito loves to prove people wrong.

It's Stephan "I used Horse Steroids and still lost" Bonnar, lol.

I love this card. I think the Tito-Rashad fight is going to be very good, as well as I thnk Robinson will destroy Florian.

I see it happening much in the same way Sherk beat Florian, straight throwdown and pound. That's Robinson's style, and I don't think Florian will be able to stop it again.

after watching the Weigh Ins.. I totally think Ortiz is going to win now. He just looked big next to Rashad. I think the size will give Ortiz the edge. I know Rashad won TUF at HW and faced bigger guys but none of them come close to Tito's strength.

Actually, Tito's size will help him tremendously because he actually pushes a fight, unlike Sylvia.

That's two different fighters with two totally different styles. Tim used his size to beat Jeff Monson pretty handidly, not saying it was pretty but he used his size to his advantage there.

I'm not even a Tito fan but I think his size and strength can cause fits for Rashad who had trouble from being taken down by Sean Salmon. Imagine what Tito could do.

I think this a great test for Rashad. I believe he will be taken down and he will have to face some pressure. In most of Rashad's fights we haven't really seen him have to endure serious punishment. I can see this fight being a lot like Griffin/Ortiz and if Rashad wins he will be in line for a title shot. If Rashad loses I think he'll put up a fight and be bigger because of it ala Forrest.

WIn/Win in my opinion
