I'm going with a couple of upsets on this card, picking Hamill and Kongo.

Hamill has a very good chance at getting the upset. He has stated that he has been working on his standup for a long time since the show. It'll be interesting to see if he can fend off Bisping's attack. If he can, he may be able to catch Bisping with a shoot early and dominate the fight.

Sakara has a good chance, he's under by +200, and Houston is unproven if he is a fluke or not. Alexander has some decent ground skills from some of the training videos I've seen, so I wouldn't be terribly surprised if he shoots for the ground and pound.

I think CroCop is going to dismantle Kongo, so I don't see much happening there, but Thomas Drwal may have a chance at an upset.

Last month for UFC 74 I wrote a post saying how I thought Cote had a real good chance against Grove, mainly because I had a gut feeling and just felt Grove was getting a little to big headed for his own good. Unfortunately, I talked myself out of going with Cote, pushing the idea of him winning away as a temporary feeling.

I regret making that decision and I once again find myself thinking the same thing. Something inside me is saying Matt Hamill is going to beat Bisping this weekend. I am trying to talk myself out of it again but I think I have to stay with Hamill this time, does anyone have the same feeling about the fight or does everyone think no doubt Bisping?



I believe Hamill will win this one fight..

I have the same feeling you have, dont forget Hamill is disabled and has a lot to prove... anybody with a disability strives harder in competition because they have to, never underestimate the willpower of someone who is different, they have been battling a disability all of their life therefore they have nothing but courage, strength, and heart inside...

I seriously see Hamill winning this fight, my money is on him.

haha me too, like i dont like matt hamill but i waited the preview video on ufc.com and it was saying about bisping being small for LHW and then rumors he would move down to MW possibly after this. I think hamill could possibly just take bisping down and win a decision. But im going with bisping to tko matt.



ok i'm the same way.. i'm doing about the same thing based on someone elses advice.. i've personally never seen eitherone of them fight.. but hmm.. idk

Even if Hams gets Bisping on the ground I think Bispings JJ will get him a submission win. Anywhere this fight goes I see the Count winning.

I've had Matt by UD ever since they put this fight on the picks page.



Me too ................ and IM BRITISH FFS!!!!!

I just dont rate Bisping at all despite his nationality being the same, his northern accent annoys me and he aint sounding great on the mic or in interviews, id much rather have semtex as our btiish poster boy, hell id take JT over him!!!!!!!!!

Hamill has a SOLID CHIN people, just wait until he eats some and still gets a takedown, it wont even be a lay and pray liek so many think, the Hammer has imrpoved his GnP and will cut Bisping with elbows

I also think Hamill has a better than average chance to beat Bisping, enough of which that made me pick him to win it. If there were better odds in favor of Bisping, I might bet on Hamill, but its not worth it at the moment.

You guys are crazy.....Bisping will end this one in the first. You guys are underestimating Bisping....and giving way to much props to Hamill. Even if Hamill takes him down...i see Bisping sub him with an armbar. And if he tries to stand with the Count....it will end in the first. Leaning towards Taylor KO The Irish Hand Grenade

Some people here are blinded, by what i have no idea. Sammich can shoot...thats it his gnp sucks, his cardio sucks, his chin...well we'll see, and he left Team Punishment to go and start his own gym. Although i dont think TP is on top anymore, it is alot better then starting your own gym with no skills besides wrestling, and without adding a striking coach. Bisping on the other hand is still a question mark. HIS opponets have gotten close to sub moves, but he gets out and then finishes them. Bisping's biggest weakness is that he is to excited when he fights, after a couple of "close" (close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades...and this aint either) subs, he settles down and takes care of business. He is training with Rampage for this fight so hopefully his defense has improved some, but not like you need much defense against someone like Sammich that has only A weapon.... lay-n-pray. I would love to take down everyone's address here who thinks Sammich will win so we could bet on it. Sammich was a deaf olympic wrestler not the real olympics...big difference in competition. And go ask Kos if wrestling is enough alone to get by on...lol
Bisping by ko/ref stoppage in round 1 or early round 2, bet on it!

Errrrm ...................... a no

I see a guy who has never fought a wrestler let alone a very strong wrestler like Hamill, and who has also looked very poor against Haynes, Schafer and Elvis, nearly losing the last 2 fights and not being to KO a guy who then drops 2 weight divisions and gets KO'd by Cummo
