i agree with all your picks except the ortiz/evans fight


but as far as what round and how, i disagree quite a bit

silva will win late RND 2/ mid RND 3 w/ a sub
franca CAN NOT last 5 rounds with sherk and will get onwed in the 3rd
evans, split decision
agreed w/ big nog and gurgel
florian will get a submission in 2nd RND
the bonnar fight will either end in RND 2 submission, or go the distance w/ a UD for bonnar
and i agree w/ your last two as well

I love Franca in this fight. Don't get me wrong I Sherk is the man but my money is on Franca. Sherk struggled in a five round unanimous decision over Florian at UFC 64. Florian is nowhere near as dangerous as Franca on the feet or on the mat. Not to mention will the rust be worn off Its been a long time for Sherk. For Sherk to win he is going to have to open him up early or get the quick take down and ride him into the late rounds, if he can ride Franca into the 5th Franca won't last. But I think Franca by sub in late 3 early 4 is what we are going to see. Should be a great fight. Won't mind if either wins!

Sherk has never been subed before and Franca has the gas to go maybe 3 rds.

Why would someone pick one person and bet on the other, to me that doesn't make any sense?

Betting and picking winners of fight are 2 different things. If I told you that I want sherk in this fight even money you wouldn't bet me. But if I told you I want sherk in this fight and I will put up $100 to your $10 why wouldn't you bet on Franca. Thats why its called gambeling. You may not have the faith in Franca to win but whats 10 dollars for a chance to win 100. Do you understand now. Not to mention I did pick Franca.

Yeah, I understand that but it's kinda like shooting yourself in the foot though. It would make more sense if this was real money and wasn't for prizes at the end of the season for most points and money.

And sorry about Franca, Sherk by gnp.
