i think everyones counting out tim sylvia since his lackluster performance where he looked like crap against randy couture

but at the same time, ITS RANDY COUTURE.

i think big timmy might actually be able to win this one

I really don't see Franklin winning this. I agree that he'll make it to the 2nd round but that might be it. Silva 2nd KO

Vera has a very big speed advantage. His clinch is fantastic, so look for him to pull down the head of this giant and use his knees. Ultimatley, I feel Vera would be more comfortable on the ground, but it shouldn't matter much. Even though Silvia is much taller, Vera's reach is not far off, so I don't see reach being a factor. Vera wins UD "but only if he can't pull off a first round sub"

Okami, again has a challenge but very doable. I don't see too much striking in this one and the ground game will be utilized by both fighter. Okami in Mcdonald's guard. Going to be interesting from there, but Okami gave Franklin some trouble in the 3rd round on the mat so it leads me to believe that sub attempts will be stuffed. Okami 2nd by GNP.

Kalib just needs to keep it standing. He has 4 strong weapons, and not to say he could not work his groud game, I just think the win comes easier on the feet for him. Kalib 1st KO.

This card isn't as fun on paper as 76 was, but I bet there is going to be a few wars in there. Just a hunch :P

No Eastmean isnt fighting but i cant update the card, he had eye surgery and is out, awaiting a replacement for Meia


Kalib just needs to keep it standing. He has 4 strong weapons, and not to say he could not work his groud game, I just think the win comes easier on the feet for him. Kalib 1st KO.

Sorry dude but i completly disagree with you on that! Belcher has the better striking but Kalib has the advantage in the ground so the smartest thing to do would be the opposite of what you said imho, he may not KO him but Belcher will win the fight with his strikes for sure

Jensen has replaced Eastman and will fight Meia, that will be a nice lil BJJ fight, gotta go with the BJJ wizard Meia tho

This fight card isnt half as bad as people are making out, they have just gotten too used to supercards from 73-76, this event has 2 quality main event fights and very compelling undercard fights, i dont see a bad fight happening!

Eastman's not fighting? That's good. I have no idea how he keeps getting on these cards.

I think Belcher is a better striker than Kalib, but I think Kalib is going to beat him by the second round.

FYI Eastman was going to be making his 185 debut and he would be a force at that weight, he isnt nearly as crap as you make out cos if you look at who he has lost too it aint that shamefull tbh, and im not even sure why you say "keeps" cos he has only been on 1 in recent times against Rampage, he is UFC material at 185 for sure and you should see this when he fights next once he recovers from his eye surgery

Why do I say "keeps".....gee, I don't know because he has never won a single fight in the UFC.

Also, didn't he fight Lutter at 185 lbs. or am I mistaken?

No im pretty sure that was at 205 but if it was he has still fought the vast majority of his fights at 205 so it would be a decent justified fresh start given his tough opponents to date

But to say "keeps" like you did suggested to me it was for like the 9th time, hes actually only had 3 fights in the ufc, losing to Vitor in his prime was no travesty, the Lutter KO was just odd, and he was always going to lose to Rampage so i think you are being really harsh dude, leave some space for being outraged by Tiki being called back

Why???
The burkman petx fight will be a much better fight but thats already announced as a prelim
Id rather see the exciting LW fight of Alvin Jorge than a slow boring fight between 2 average LHW's tbh
