F**k yeah, I have been pushing for Horwich, it may be a longshot, but I think he's good enough, Matt Horwich by UD.

LOL Yeah, he takes the Matt Lindland approach. I like Matt and he is a tough/durable fighter. This could actually go to decision and Matt might even win this fight, but I'll probably go with Almeida by decision or sub. It's actually a hard fight to call. I still can't believe that Matt KO'd Benji Radach, sucks because Benji is my favorite IFL fighter and he was stringing together a lot of good wins at the time...

Anyone else notice how amazing this card is looking

Cote vs Silva
Sanchez Alves
Werdum fighting
Cain vs Hardonk
Sherk vs Griffin
Guillard vs Fisher
Tibau vs Franca
Reljic vs Leites

And now Almeida vs Horwich!!

Jeesh what a card!!! I can't wait for this one. Everyfight should be on the main card so this is one of the cards I won't spoiler the Prelims for myself.

Yes indeed - a damn hard card to pick winners.
I thought Horwich was one of the few guys worth watching in the IFL (evidently the UFC thought so too), but I think he will have his ass handed to him by Almeida.

it looks the UFC wants to see if Horwich can hang with the "big dogs" right away... I think Almeida quickly submits him.
