Griffin and Nog to win

Not sure about Rmpage and Silva, should be a cracker

excellent card tbf, really looking forward to it

millarcat is a big ufc so i hear and sea.

the Griffin/evans fight is the hardest one to decide, See wehater Evans trys to box or uses his wrestling to take him down.

by far the best card of the year, although the K1/dream (dunno if anyone watches it) looks pretty awesome.

Will watch but am not gonna stay up for it - 3am start or something.

I want Forrest to win, but have a feeling he might get caught by Evans, he has a great pair of hands on him these days - just ask Liddel.

Nog will beat Mir.

Wandy will beat Jackson the baby killer

Kongo over Turk

Hamill over Andy

Chonan over Blackburn

Hardonk by KO

Okami over Lister

Dollaway over Massezio

i want griffin to win but i think evans will ko him.

and i want nog to win for sure, then hopefully he can armbar lesnar

what channel is it on, or is it a paying event, please?

Lesnar got lucky last time out - Nog would murder him.

he wont be able to take Lesnar down lolol unless he pulls guard which will be a mistake.

I was looking forward to UFC 92 more then xmas (serious), then again xmas is overated

amrite?

Yeah, I've always watched all MMA organisations, not just yer average UFC noob.:thumbsup:

Henderson is great, but I feel he's slightly limited, as Silva pointed out.

I think he did, Couture was coming off a massive lay off and was 45 FFS!

It had to come home to roost for Randy one day, Brock was in the right place at the right time, and caught him on a part of the head that's tough to take.

I'd put money on it right now, that Shane Carwin would take out Lesnar.

Nope, I think you're wrong.

Nog pulling guard on Lesnar is a decent move. Lesnar doesn't have BJJ down at all right now, and would get arm-barred IMO.

apparently lensar coaches say hes about "purple belt level", the last thing you want is a 275lb monster on top of you, his wrestling will be too good and with his XL fists will stop a mud hole in nog. Out boxing him and getting on top of Lensar is the best way, wrestlers never like to be on there back.

I think forrest will be too quick and right in his face from first bell. Evens is too slow to start so for me griffin will just edge this one.

Well, does he have a belt? Nope!

Saying about what level he's at is inconsequential - he needs to earn it and earn it under someone recognised for it to be worth anything.

Nog is a genuine black belt, and a good black belt at that. He also has tons more experience and ability than Lesnar right now. Pulling guard on anyone when your Jits is as good as Nog's is a good idea with someone of his size. He needs to out manoeuvre Lesnar and tire him out for a couple of rounds - then take it to the mat.

You clearly haven't seen too many Evans fights lately.:roll:

Don't get me wrong, I want Forrest to win, but Evans is a solid striker and wrestler.

hes a purple belt yet when when he had herrings back for 3/4 of his ufc fight he didnt think for a second to sink in some underhooks and rear naked choke him.....lol hes a white belt bjj and thas why i think ground would b great game for nog.

Very true but Griffin can take a very good shot and has a great all-round game.

lol just about seen evey UFC fight in the past 6 yrs and certainly all of Evans fights :roll:. I take on board what you say, and i agree about Evans striking and wrestling, just think that Forrest will be too much of a handful for Evans and will have him gassing by the end of round 1. Forrests cardio is a league above Evans (and everyones tbf) and will be the deciding factor in this one for me.

I hope you're right, I really don't like Evans much - but I think his cardio has improved recently - he has a work ethic these days - just hope Forrest doesn't get caught like Chuck did.
