Good card, but I think Joe Daddy has a lot of potential, He has had plenty of "get used to the UFC" type fights. Instead of Kurt Pellegrino they need to thrown him in with a top 10 lightweight. The UFC needs to clear up the title picture. If Penn had gone to WW, there is no clear cut 3rd, 4th, or 5th ranked fighter.

Kurts no push over in my opinion. Not a top 10 guy but i really think hes a pretty good fighter and comes out of the Franca camp. I think this could be a very good match.

Remember Tito vs. Rashad and Koscheck vs. Sanchez were also supposed to be "fights of the night", so I'm not sure I buy into any of that labeing anymore..............

WW division is stacked and this GSP vs Kos should be a sweet fight. I see Koscheck winning a split decision. I would think winner would get a title shot, but because of TUF tying up the title, lord knows how the WW will play out.

I think Gonzaga wins over Randy, but he won't hold on to the belt that long. I don't think he will even get 1 title defense under his belt.

What about Randy? He will have 2 more fights (after 74) on his contract. Does he go back down to LH division to finish off this contract if he loses?

Let's all be honest with ourselves... Ed Herman looks like he should be in the WFC (Womens Fighting Championship) not the UFC... as long as the UFC keeps talent like this on Spike they'll be fine, but if they start loading PPV's with his type of caliber I won't be paying $39.99 to watch his lame a**.

I'm a Gonzaga guy now, i called Gonzaga tko round 2, Couture is good but i want to see a new face of the heavyweight devision.

Stacked was great the only dissapointment was Tito and Rashad and Herrings failure to finish Nog even though IMO the ref COULD have stopped that fight.

I just wish 74 wasn't more than a month away.

Most people on here think GSP will beat Koscheck. I just wonder how and why? I probably would've picked Kos against GSP even before GSP lost to Serra but I'm not 100% certain yet.
I think Kos sub-defence will be the deciding factor in this fight. If he can avoid getting swept when he's on top (cuz he will get on top) and avoid subs he's gonna win a decision. It's only a 3-round fight so if he controls most of two rounds, the fight is his.

Thank you Thank You Thank You. I thought i was the only one that thought this match up was horrible for GSP. Thats the exact way i see it also. I see Kos coming out getting the take down and controlling the fight from the top for the first two rounds and more then likely the third. GSP is explosive no doubt about it but i dont see Kos getting taken down and i dont think Kos will be dumb enough to exchage with Rush.

Since when did Kos have a bad stand-up? or a great GnP for that matter?
Kos is a better wrestler than Hughes and more psysically imposing. He has evolved leaps and bounds and I just have a gut feeling that he'll present problems for GSP wherever the fight is.
