If Sanchez presses the action and makes it his fight Fitch will lose.
Either way it's gonna be a war.


Well im afraid to say you are wrong bud, dunno what makes it his fight means but even if Diego is the aggressor he will still lose fighting a guy who has better striking better wrestling better bjj and is on a better run than him!

That's all hear-say. If Fitch is as good as you all think then he'll prove it tomorrow night. And Diego making it "his fight" is basically doing what he did to Karo.

It's not that i don't like Fitch, I think he is great, he just hasn't done enough in his short career to diserve a title shot. I got nothing against him, It's the people saying that cause he beat Burkman and Goveia that all the sudden he is top contender and deserves a shot. BS! He has got to earn it and he is on his way.
That will be fight of the night.

I dont understand why Jardine have the chance to fight chuck they should of made it Chuck vs Shogun and th winner has a shot at the title.

The Shogun griffin fight will still be nice to watch i hope Griffin is training on blocking knees cause they gonna hurt if Shogun lands them.

Does anyone except me like Machida ?? the guys style makes him so hard to hit, his foot work and head movement are something else.

I think the best fight will be Sanchez vs Fitch, i hope sanchez gets his ass kicked man i hate that guy, I wonder when Parisian is gonna fight



Nice calls, man..............Chuck vs. Shogun would be so much more interesting, and line up a good fighter for the title........If Griffin somehow upsets (unlikely) Shogun, and Chuck wins like he should, will he get an immediate rematch with Jackson????................should NOT IMO.......................Beating Jardine proves nothing....................S***, he just got knocked out embarrasingly by a newcomer................

Man I just feel sorry for Forrest. Can't wait to see Shogun in the UFC though.



Never count Cool Hand Luke out......................he definitely has the opportunity to make a statement in this one, nothing to lose are the words I believe.............

Jon "diego is my bitch" Fitch with a win. Even though I bet that Diego would win I'm glad fitch got the win cause Diego is over rated.

I'm not saying Diego should have won, but......



How in the hell did one judge score that last round for Fitch? Do we give more points for escaping rather than applying good submissons.


Honestly, I thought that scoring was bogus. I expected three 29-28's. That split decision was terrible.



The scoring in the UFC has gotten suspect.

Apparently the 2 biggest mismatches in the event turned out to be upsets. Go figure!

Edit: Favorite quote of the night: "I ate a lot of cookies" - Forrest Griffin

chuck wasnt owned by any means. jardine won because of a knock down that liddel looked more like he tripped. im not a liddel fan at all but i mean honestly jardine kicked him alot... that was it. liddel landed more shots.... more hard shots... more effective combos. i thought it was a 29-28 victory for chuck. deigo only lost because the guy was on top more. the fast the guy was on top shouldnt matter if he does nothing. deigo was fighting hard on the bottom with manny near subs and i just though that deigo was clearly underrstated in that fight from the way it was called.

and am i the only one pumped forest won?? i came close to betting on forrest because i knew hes a great fighter but how can you vote against shogun. but if you look around the UFC only one former pride guy (rampage) has had success. henderson crocop and shogun all disappointments. i know henderson did fight rampage but he did very poorly and looked winded early. pride guys arnt living up to there hype in my opinion.
