LOL at Jones fighting Dan Henderson next. Surely this will be Bones' most dominate victory to date.
WTF Miguel Torres?!

I think it would be similar to Jones/Evans. Evans and Henderson have similar skill sets. They're both wrestlers who have knock out power. Maybe Dan's credentials say he has a better chance of out-wrestling Jones, but I honestly don't think so. Evans' MMA wrestling seems to be better than Henderson's.

Jones vs Anderson or move up to HW. There's nothing at LHW for the guy.

Looking at the LHW landscape, I agree. Phil Davis and Alex Gustafsson aren't ready to challenge him yet.

If they make a superfight, I would rather see GSP vs Anderson. If not, do Anderson vs Jones.

Anderson's is, yes.
Some folks are trying to push Alex Gustafsson vs Jones due to AG's height & reach but any MMA can see the guys not ready for that.
I just think GSP is too small for Anderson, much like Rashad was too small for Jones.

And I'm hyped that one of my fav fighters, Hector Lombard, will finally be fighting in the UFC!

Nice non-PPV UFC event this weekend.

Main Card Predictions:

Miller by decision
Koscheck by decision
Paul Harris(Palhares) by submission
Johnson by decision

I know. I predict decisions way too much.

It's still a really good card despite Overeem/Dos Santos not happening. Still sad though since that was one of my most anticipated fights ever. The under card is especially great.

I expect Dos Santos to dominate. Carwin couldn't get Dos Santos to the ground, so I don't expect Mir to either. Dos Santos by TKO in the 1st or 2nd.

Les Go Mir!

Here's a couple of videos of upcoming fights. Absolutely love this guy's work. Does a great job.

Bigfoot got beat the F up!
Mir really didn't have much a chance.
Dam Struve was smooth in submitting Lavar.
Down goes Pee-Wee!
Good to see Dan Hardy finally get a win.

I guess I'm excited for Cain vs JDS 2. It feels a little too soon, but it's consistent with what the UFC has done in the past. GSP comes to mind after his quick KO against Serra. GSP would've gotten a championship rematch with Serra after one fight if he didn't get hurt, and ended up getting an interim title match.

A Wand vs Rich rematch should be good, but I'm disappointed in not getting to see Wand and Vitor fight again. I've been waiting for that rematch for a long time.

Yup this time Cain will be ready no 1 year leave so it should last longer than a min. I think JDS will win but by decision i don't see him knocking out Cain

I don't see how that fight goes the distance. Somebody is getting finished.

Sad day in MMA today. Seeing Ken-Flo retire wasn't surprising, but sad nonetheless. Always enjoyed seeing him scrap.

Looking forward to UFC 148 since UFC 147 is going to be awful. Silva vs The Gangster from West Linn, Oregon is going to be incredible!

Not sure how you can say you don't see him knocking out Cain when we've all seen him knock out Cain. But I'm hoping the old Cain shows up & gets back the belt.

Was never a Kenny fan. Especially how he'd call out BJ & then go & lay an egg. Dude couldn't win the strap & had lots of title shots.

Wish they would've made Lombard vs Wand or Belfort. Not too interested in Wand vs Rich II.

I definitely expect Cain and Dos Santos to be closer this time, but I still see Dos Santos winning. I think Cain will have a hard time taking him down and will get picked apart.

I liked Kenny. I wasn't a huge fan, but he usually put on pretty entertaining fights. His "I finish fights" bit was pretty funny. He was elite, but just couldn't get over the hump and win a title. I think he's doing a good job as a broadcaster.
