I've picked 2 underdogs right now, taking my chances with Rothwell and Ambrose. Then again, it's funny seeing that every fight right now, except the Hot Bout, has an underdog. Even though I'm picking the faves to win, those odds alone are worth an underdog parlay on the side.

the only underdog I picked was Lazama, and according to mmaweekly he's not even on the card anymore.

I have none of the underdogs, if I had to pick one it would be Buentello just because he hits so hard that if he caught Aleks he coud drop him but I am picking Aleks anyway because he is the harder hitter of the two and has the better chin.

I like this card but in all honesty their not real competitive fights. I believe most of the fights are one sided that is why their are so many underdog possibilities. Tim Sylvia is the only underdog i see having a chance, and that chance is not a very good one. I believe Lindland, Babalu, Arlovski, Aleks, Barnett all win those fights 95 percent of the time. Of course Rothwell, Whitehead, Rizzo have a punchers chance. I believe Rothwell is a little overrated, he dominated in the IFL, but c'mon look at the IFL. His most notable win was agianst Roy Nelson in a fight which i thaught he lost. The only reason the Barnett Rizzo matchup is appealing is because Rizzo beat Barnett 8 years ago. I dont see any other result in this fight. I see Barnett taking it to the ground and winning however he wants Sub, TKO, Decision. Mike Whitehead hasnt fought a tough fight since he was in the UFC and faught Jardine. He has made a name of himself by beating cans and washed up vets like Mark Kerr in the IFL. Fabio Negao has been KO and subbed twice by bigger name competitors in Demian Maia, Rouismar Palhares, and Ray Lizama. I see no reason why one of the best MW in the world wont handle him. Buentello struggles when he faces top 10 competition as seen with Overeem and Arlovski. He hasn't really ever defeated anybody of note. His biggest wins are agianst Justin Eilers and Tank.

I agree with pretty much everything you said, however Tim will do better then people expect I feel.

Yea I think most of the underdogs while good fighters it almost seems like they went out and picked an oppoenent that will give them the most trouble to get 2 bigger names on the card.. but still almost seems like there is the chance they can control the show... but it still has the chance for some big upset.. but any of these guys winning I would not call an upset really except for Tim beating Fedor.. and while yea that would be an upset... THere is a chance he could...
