I hope my poll stays relevent this time around! cant see the CC fight becoming a bigger HW fight tbh as GG is much more relevant in the title picture

Heres my break down

Gonzaga vs Werdum - Last fight was about 4 years ago and Gonzaga took it on short notice. It will not be the same fight as last time it will be a lot closer and I see Gabe taking the UD

Penn vs Stevenson - Bj outclasses Joe in everything except wrestling, I see Bj taking his back in the 2nd round and tapping Joe.

Etim vs Stout - Etim has a great ground game and Stout has a pretty bad one, they are pretty much equal on the feet so I see Etim taking a 2nd round arm-bar.

Grove vs Jorge - Jorge has been out for a while and Kendall is very long so I see Jorge clinching with him and catching a couple knees to the face. So Kendall by 2nd round T(KO).

Jess vs Marcus - Marcus has great boxing so I see him T(KO) ing Jess in the 1st.

Joe Stevenson bdef. BJ Penn by 3rd rd. TKO, BJ has had only one fight down at 155, he has pretty bad conditioning, he only really got motivated fo rthe Jens fight because he wants to avenge that loss, I can only see him get that motivated against Hughes a 3rd time and GSP a 2nd time. Joe is a monster and I think he will push BJ to his limit and stop him eventually in the middle rounds of the fight

Gonzaga def. Werdum by 2nd rd. TKO since AA on a Bad day picked him apart

Kendall Grove def. Jorge Rivera by 1st rd. TKO unless Jorge tags Goves weak chin like Cote did then Jorge by KO..

Terry Etim by 1st rd. Sub since Stout has no ground game and I see him going down easy and early and being tapped.

Marcus Davis def. Jess by 2nd round TKO, I see this being a good old fashion brawl and Davis puttin him in a bad spot in the 2nd and stopping him..

I see Penn getting the sub. in the 2nd, Stevenson has got great wrestling
but his bjj and his striking are nowhere near BJ's, BJ should batter Joe in the first with strikes then a well set up submission in the 2nd.

I think Gonzaga with the KO, Werdum has been working on his striking but
GG has big KO power, Gonzaga is goin to want to stand and bang it out, he shouldn't want to take this to the ground because I think Werdum has the advantage there. GG took the first meeting on short notice and still made
it to the third round, plus GG is much improved from back then. Gonzaga with the first round KO.

I think Grove's conditioning is very good, so i think he'll take this by a U. Decsision, Rivera has had some time off so he will have trained hard, he could win this if he winged a wild punch and caught Grove on the button,
Grove by a convincing U.D.

Who ever Cro Cop fights I am sure he will do good, he should be pissed enough to let it all hang out and not be tentative in the cage, whoever his opponent is Cro Cop by KO

I think CC should move down to light heavy weight and see how he fairs in that weight division. He's been great fighting at heavy weight in the past,but I think a drop might prove to work out for the better at this stage in his career.

Well its a RUMORED card, and while February may have been stated by him in some artciles this event is just 11 days shy of february so .......... and the UFC like to have interntional fighters fight here

Im going to put this out here as i see it as very likely providing they get the contract dispute sorted -

CC -VS- AA - the battle of the abbreviations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It would either build CC straight back up with a win over the former much loved champ OR it would show ring rust doesnt stop the pitbull and take him right up into title contention, 2 losses in a row or not CC is still a top 10 HW

This event is shaping up surprisingly nicely, hope the Davis Jess fight opens the show as that will be BANGING, im surprised at how good they are making this event as its a shitty lil small areana that only holds 11,000 people, i imagine those fights already rumored will turn out to be the main card and another few weaker fights will be announced as prelims

Other possible fighters on this card would be - Gleison Tibau, and i hope they have Paul Taylor fighting on this card, no shame in his loss to Davis so i hope they have him fighting a mid level WW on this card, may i suggest Luke Cummo!!!

This is looking a cracking little show, with it being about 90 minutes away from me I'm going to head up for it.

Joe/Bj should be a brilliant little fight.

Gonzaga/Werdum intruiges me a lot.

I can't wait to see how Kendall bounces back from defeat and It'll be great to see Cro Cop live especially if he gets back to his best.

I agree. I hope he fights like he can again. Also just heard that Ben Rothwell declined his option with IFL and may be coming to the UFC to fight....Cro Cop.

Actually Sam Stout is fighting my boy Per Eklund and not Terry Etim. Tough debutfight for Per but hopefully he can get Sam to the ground and submit him.

great news, tho i hope Etim does still fight on this card!

Per is one of the best unknown fighters, i posted a nice HL vid of his in the video section so check it out

I didnt think they would bring Hardonk back but he makes a good fight for Big C (who very nearly beat Eddie Sanchez if i remember rightly!).

Great to see Taylor back but i dont know his opponent, Kelly is 6-0 with 4 TKO wins and 2 subs, hasnt fought any real competition though and Taylor will likely be too much for him
