Penn vs Florian (Florian's more exciting than Sherk imo, but penn would take it)
Kid vs Mach (whoa)
Stevenson vs Huerta (i think Daddy would own the poster boy)
Gomi vs Diaz II (and III, and IV, and V)

WW:
Fitch vs Karo (exciting possibility, good chance of happening too)
Serra vs J.Shields (Im liking Shields here folks)
GSP vs Hughes III (I think the third will be a lot closer than people think)

MW:
Silva vs Henderson (all out war)
Filho vs Kang (im leaning toward Filho, but who knows)
Lindland vs Franklin (gotta say lindland by decision)

LHW:
Liddell vs Silva (about friggin time, i say Wanderlei)
Shogun vs Henderson (f*&k if I know)
Rampage vs Sokoudjou (Rampage but how will he do it is a mystery)

HW:
Fedor vs Couture (biggest draw ever, gotta say Fedor...which will give Randy a better chance)
Noguiera vs Gonzaga (Both can stand, both can roll, Nog should take it by UD)
Arlovski vs Herring (maybe if they both fight like the animals they are we'd see a KO highlight)
CroCop vs Vera (a year ago Id laugh at this, now Im wondering if Vera on his way up can stop Cro Cop on his way down)

Kid V Mach would be a huge size difference. Gotta go with Mach

Even though BJ seems to be at 155 now I would still like to see Penn/Hughes 3. Would love to see how a fit David Terrell would handle Filho

CroCop would eat Vera not jus because I hate vera but he is no kongo he is very small for hw and he would try and stand with crocop and get knocked out he wouldnt take it to the ground and he would get caught.

LW:
Penn - Too good to be beaten by Florian
Mach
Stevenson - Huerta's striking wouldn't phase him
Gomi - Diaz looked bad in his last fight, Gomi throws with more power

WW:
Fitch - Too dominant, hard to submit
Serra - Shields has poor ground and pound and weak power on top, Serra's ju-jitsu wins.
GSP - Jack of all trades

MW:
Henderson - Completely dominant on the ground over Silva
Kang - A beast, Filho would immediately have to TRY to shoot. Not sure can get him down.
Lindland - Not a bad matchup for Lindland, much better on the ground

LHW:
Silva - Looping power, come on Wanderlei.
Henderson - Rules are better for him in the cage, and Shogun may gas, if Shogun shows up in shape, I'd take Shogun.
Rampage - Too dominant right now.

HW:
Fedor via 1st round armbar - Way too quick in his transitions, one of the only PRIDE fighters I think will transition well to the cage.
Nogueira - the UFC hasn't seen his unbelievable ju-jitsu yet.
Arlovski - a weak chin, but better standup.
Vera - Book is out on Crocop

imo vera can beat kongo, idk if you have seen vera fight before but vera would beat CC, i think anyone ATM can beat CC, he is not fightin at his best and vera would be way to fast for him

These would be some great fights. But didn't Dennis Kang just sign with another org?
I think Couture/Fedor would be closer than some might think. When Couture's the underdog, which is often, it somehow plays better for him.

Good post I would agree on most.

I would like to see a rematch of Arlovski vs. Rizzo in place of Herring.

LW:
Penn vs Florian: Florian by sub, i just think he looks really good at the moment
Kid vs Mach: Mach by decision, i dont know a massive amount about these two fighters
Stevenson vs Huerta: Stevenson by sub, he is just too strong for huerta and is at the top of the LW division
Gomi vs Diaz II: Diaz by sub, i think he'd beat him in the stand up in rd 1 then sub him in rd 2

WW:
Fitch vs Karo: Karo by sub, this is a really hard pick, but i think karo is to good with his BJJ on the ground
Serra vs J.Shields: shields by sub, dont know a massive amount about him but he's beat some serious opposition
GSP vs Hughes III: GSP by tko rd 3...first round will be a tight round with some good wrestling, second round will be more open and hughes will take the round, then GSP will tko him in the third

MW:
Silva vs Henderson: hendo by tko, hendo will just be too strong for silva
Filho vs Kang: filho by decision
Lindland vs Franklin: franklin by ko, mainly cuz i really like franklin and cant stand lindland

LHW:
Liddell vs Silva: chuck by ko, i think he will come back with big vengeance and dominate silva on the feet
Shogun vs Henderson: shogun by ko, only if he is as good as he was in pride, ko by knees
Rampage vs Sokoudjou: rampage by ko, he's just on fire at the moment

HW:
Fedor vs Couture: couture by decision, i think this one would be so close on the cards
Noguiera vs Gonzaga: gonzaga by tko, he is just so strong and too strong for big nog
Arlovski vs Herring: arlovski by ko, if its the old school arlovski
CroCop vs Vera: vera by sub, i think he is just gonna be so impressive

Penn vs Florian
Kid vs Mach
Stevenson vs Huerta
Gomi vs Diaz-100 out of 100 times

WW:
Fitch vs Karo-Probably the 2nd best WW in the world behind GSP
Serra vs J.Shields
GSP vs Hughes III-Yeah it will be close I would tak e4th or 5th round this time until Hughes gasses from shooting in too many times

MW:
Silva vs Henderson
Filho vs Kang-Kang going to K-1 is a waste of good talent
Lindland vs Franklin-Rich won't beat Matt in the Grecco clinch no way

LHW:
Liddell vs Silva-Chuck keeps his hands to low and Wandy WONT DIE!!
Shogun vs Henderson-inless the Shogun form Pride shows up then Shogun by Decision
Rampage vs Sokoudjou-Rampage, would be a AWESOME & EXPLOSIVE SLUGFEST! Until Soko gasses and Rampage slams him and stops him. IN a 3 round fight it's rampage UD in a 5 round fight its a stoppage

HW:
Fedor vs Couture-The way Pride is looking right now and how good Randy has looked You almost have to say Randy
Noguiera vs Gonzaga-Nog will outdo him in everything
Arlovski vs Herring-AA by UD
CroCop vs Vera-Just because CC is on a losing downslide...
