Alvin "Kid" Robinson vs Kenny "Kenflo" Florian.

I'm picking Nate Marquardt, but I don't think that is really a big upset for more devoted MMA fans.

I'm taking Nate and Rashad.

EDIT: Also throwing some money on Diego "The Octopus" Saraiva, since Gurgel has yet to impress me. I don't care if he's awesome on the ground, it doesn't mean jack if he can't take anyone onto the ground.

i really dont think marquardt will beat silva, these guys go out and watch film on what they did wrong and need to improve on. I am positive silva worked on a sprawl, and his ground game from the back, you're gonna see a whole diff fighter.

You legitimately think Franklin is the better fighter next to Silva?

Wow.

Hermes Franca over Sean Sherk. Franca will get taken down and hopefully he can avoid the GnP and slip in a submission.



Sherk has 34 pro fights and has never been submitted. Kenflo couldn't do it, Nick Diaz couldn't do it, Karo couldn't do it (*2), so I doubt Franca will slip in a submission.

I don't see how Hermes can beat Sherk. It will just be Sherk dominating Hermes on the ground and picking Hermes apart with his strikes. Yes, Sherk's striking is technically superior than Hermes.

I doubt Hermes will be able to submit Sherk off his back because Sherk has excellent defence and he has a very compact build.

i see franca taking a serious beating before landing something big and ending sherks reign as champ. tito i think will lose. rashad to me seems to be a bad matchup for tito. i like rashad by dec.

This might sound stupid, but I think I'm gonna put my money on Robinson.. the guy has won all his fights by early submissions, and I can see him overwelming Florian like Diego did.

I think Anderson Silva is better than alot of people think he is. I think he is better than Rich Franklin. Then I also think Nate Marquardt is better than both of them.
