I picked Rashad over Forest because I see Rashad having a significant advantage int the stylistic matchup. Having the superior athleticism, an INTELIGENT camp if not inteligent gameplan, and perky nipples.
I don't see a finish likely here.

Also, I'm 50 50 on Rampage Wanderlei. Wandy is overated to me and isn't favorible in a cage. A 1 hitter quitter on Jardine didn't turn my head. Rampage is a superior matchup in the cage I think. But he could be mind ****** after his last loss and break from Ibarra.

What do you guys think?

I could go with Rashad, but IMO this fight is a toss up. As for Wand and Rampage I think this fight is a good fight for Wand. I don't think Rampage has the ability to defend the clinch, and Wand has a devastating clinch. Rampage could take Wand down and ground him out, which is the only way for him to win IMO, but he will have to get through the assault and then deal with what Wand's been learing at EXC.

It's going to be a forrest griffin decision most likely from picking rashad apart with his huge reach advantage . I could also see him slapping a triangle on rashad if he manages to get a take down . I could also see forrest stuffing rashad in the late rounds after rashad gasses , turtling to rashad's back and rear naked choking him . Rashads only hope in this fight is a one punch knockout imo . Rashad gasses in 3 round fights , no way he has enough to match forrest's cardio for 5 rounds.

And wandy will K page TFO or lose a decision arona style . WAR WANDY!!!

i see forest winning a decsion by keeping him at bay with leg kicks and jabs
i think rampage may be able to win a decsion over wandy if he takes him down

Rashad is better than Forrest everywhere but JJ, and Rashad has avoided better JJ than Forrest's. It's an easy call but it's hard for people to pick against a current champ, let alone a fan favorite. Speaking of JJ Rashad has been working his a lot. I expect to see him take Forrest down and pound on him before sinking in a kimura. If Rashad wants to be and stay champ, he knows he needs to be well rounded and thats what Greg Jackson is working on with him.

i see Forrest grinding another UD out. It should be a hell of a fight. Evans needs to use his wrestleing backwards and try to catch Forrest. The Rampage/Wandy fight should be another fight just like the Chuck/Wandy fight. A total standup throwdown. If this happens Wandy wins by TKO. Page needs to take him down and GNP. I will be pulling for Forrest and Wandy

i see Evans winning by tko..i think this match probably will end up on the ground..where Evans has better skills on the ground than Forrest..and end up with a tko or sub over Forrest..the Rampage and Silva fight is iffy..but i have Rampage dec. over Silva..was too impress with Silva last win over Jardine..and it might be that time for Silva to finally lose to a better Rampage...

Evans by tko or decision, Greg Jackson seems to be Forest's worst enemy

Seems like you're mistaking Forrest with Greg Jackson.

Rashad is better than Forrest everywhere but JJ,





yeah cardio and stirking have been proven time and time again.....hope you like your new AV after this fight as well


The only way Rashad wins this is by a perfect gameplan, Forrest outclasses Rashad everywhere else

both guys have great cardio it could go 5 rounds easy but
this wil be third straight fight live i see forrest fight last two against shogun and page i was rooting for those boys to win this time not only will i root for forrest to win i will be buying a forrest shirt sortly to wear there

wandy vs page

i have seen it already twice and third time will not be a charm for page. wandy will knock him out.

and mir??
mir has no shot at winning
this will be a standup battle with nog knocking him out do do mir's lack or cardio in the deep water rounds
