    Silvia-I don't really want to see him hold the title, but I just have the feeling that he will. I think hes a cocky a$@hole but he is a great fighter.
    Griffin-Franklin--No clue, I think theyre very evenly matched. Id like to see Griffin win personally but I wouldnt put money on it.

    I do know one thing for sure, Ill be sitting at buffalo wild wings watching it after work with a couple adult beverages to keep me company.

    I like Belfort, but I think Silva will be very hard to beat. The only other fight I care who wins is the Bader/Jones fight. Hard to call but I gotta go with Bader.

    The main fight will be with my wife to watch the prelims, she HATES that stuff. :D

    Bader has no chance on Jones... I mean NONE, it wont be even remotely close.

    Silva will beat Belfort, mostly because Belfort is scared of Silva's speed and reach.

    Forrest will use his size advantage and put Franklin on his back and beat him down from on top. It wont be close once Forrest gets him down.

    Torres will school Banuelos standing. Wont be close.

    Edit: Hey you're 2 for 2 so far DevL. i wont say torres "schooled" him but he definitely won all the rounds. i was disappointed at the lack of action in that fight. oh well.

    yeah holy crap! I was actually not impressed with the fighting in this event...not really rooting for any one fighter but man i think it could have been more spectacular.

    franklin and forest should have been insane but it was so so.

    i would have liked to see sylva and belfort go for a couple rounds before someone lost.

    oh well there is always UFC 127 ...128...129...:)

    Well... 4 for 4. I thought Torres would do exactly what he did because of reach. I did think Forrest would finish on top, but Franklin held on and finished the fight, losing all rounds because of Forrest's takedowns and strikes from on top, so close enough. Notice how tenative Belfort was? He was scared because he knew he would get hit with speed. Bader was no match for Jones... it was not close.

    I should bet on the fights... Im right like 90% of the time. Last time I actually bet $20, I lost. Said Lesnar would immediately charge Dos Santos, take him down and then pound him out. He did that then could not keep Dos Santos down... and as soon as I saw that I knew he was going to get KOed.
