Let's see how wrong I am. I think Jardine has to win this fight and he knows it so he'll give it his all. but so does Sliva. Chris leben hands down. I hope Randy pulls it out but it is a coin flip.

I know, I have been dead wrong a lot lately. I think a lot of my picks are clouded by my dislike for a fighter.

Why I was calling Randy Couture Vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira a coin flip is: This fight would have been great 3-4 years ago, but now, I am just not sure which Nog or Couture will show up. There have been many reports that Nog has been knocked out many times during training camp. Randy just hasn't looked like the randy of old (but in the corner for Carano on the strikeforce fight, he did look in good shape). I hope I am wrong and we get both fighters on top of their game, but If Nog comes out like he did against Mir, it's going to be over quick.

Keith Jardine Vs. Thiago Silva should be a good brawl! Both fighters need the win and Jardine isn't afraid to throw and get hit. But I see Silva coming out and making a statement after his loss to Machida.

Chris Leben Vs. Jake Rosholt - I am keeping my fingers crossed that Leben Knocks him out. The only problem is Rosholt will not want to stand with him (unless he is stupid) and will try to take the fight to the ground. I hope he doesn't use his wrestling to make this a boring lay and pray win.

Nate Marquardt Vs. Demian Maia - this has all the hype of being fight of the night. Both fighters are at the top of their game and should be a good one. My guess is the winner will face the winner Anderson Silva vs Henderson for the 185 belt.

Krzysztof Soszynski vs. Brandon Vera - for some reason nothing really impresses me about Soszynski. I like Vera as a fighter and he needs the win. I hope this turns into Vera's type of a kick boxing max and and he gets the Knock out. My pick is based on not liking Soszynski.

Isn't Rosholt the national champ from Okie state? Seems like there's a lot more high quality college wrestlers getting into MMA to keep the competition fire going.

No that was the Tim Hague vs. Todd Duffee fight. Nate fight was the 2nd fight shown on PPV. It was abot 28 seconds, when Maia jumped at him and he landed the knock out.
