GSP on the other hand is the best all around guy hands down. He may not be the best boxer, or the best wrestler, but he is the best when you combine the two.

In the last fight GSP really didnt do that much damage to Koscheck and I believe one or two judges even gave Josh a round. I think both fighters have grown since that point, we will just have to see who puts it all together on that night!! Should be a good one
I agree, the best thing about both of them is their character, they are both really good dudes and respect each other as it should be. I think Kos's hands are def getting better!

GSP v Koschek matchup is going to be great. I don't know if Koschek is going to be able to defend GSP's takedowns, Kos has a strong base but GSP is really quick and he pulls it off almost every time. I think GSP has the best ground game in terms of holding control and position but he doesn't necessarily do a great deal of damage. It'll be interesting to see what happens. I personally think both fighters have come a long way but Kos will def be taking it to GSP this time both on the feet and and on the ground.

The fight is still a while away but we could potentially have it anytime after UFC 116 which is only a couple months away. TUF is only filmed in a few weeks and the fighters on the show only have days between fights. They will probably need a few months when they come off the show as it's a title shot but I wouldn't put it past later this year.

Yeh I'm pumped but no idea who will win though. I'll give the advantage to Rashad because he's on a roll at the moment and Rampage has ring rust. Either way, I'm keen to see a KO and heaps of smack talk.

Forrest v lil nog will be good too. I think Lil nog will come out on top though. I don't see Griffin as a top contender anymore.

I'm excited about the fight. I was never really into the UFC until recently when I saw TUF Heavyweights. It's gonna be a good fight. Evans or Jackson... Who do you think takes it?

He's a cool guy and good to watch but he lacks technique and is basically a brawler. I don't think he can cut it against the likes of Machida, Shogun etc and we all saw what happened against Silva.

negative. If it's a TKO it will be rampage. I think if Evans control's the fight like he did with the bigger Thiago then he will win. If he doesn't and tries to stand with the bigger Rampage he will be the one getting TKO'd. Rampage hasn't fought in 14 month's but he is suppose to be in great shape so this one should be good.

Agreed. He did beat Shogun though. I would like to see a rematch. He is does ok because he is a big 205'er and can throw a punch. But you saw what happened when put in with a highly technical fighter such as Silva he got KO'd in 50 seconds. It is all about style matchups. Rua like to brawl and I think that is why he lost he was a little too aggressive against forrest. Machida and Silva are more defensive fighter's and are not good matchups for a guy like Griffen.

Rashad v Rampage... What a fight!!

Props to Rashad for going in and getting the job done. He looked like the more complete fighter and I think he's earned a title shot against Shogun. I think his speed gave him a huge advantage and he seemed to control the fight every time they went into the clinch. In the 3rd round Rampage rocked him but he didn't capitalise on it, similar to what Thiago Silva did in the 3rd round against Rashad. I think the clinch work and wrestling was a part of Rashad's game plan because Rampage looked completely gassed by the end of the fight. The fight definitely lived up to the expectation, I was really on the fence about this one but Rashad nearly won the fight easily.

The highlight of the card was the Todd Duffy fight where he got KO'd. Surely that will be remembered as one of the all time greatest fights. Also, the lil Nog decision was questionable imo. All in all, a good card.

agreed on all three fights, i was disappointed in the way lil Nog fought, he looked old and slow. but major props to Jason Britz, stepped up w/ short notice, not sure why forrest pulled out. Britz had a great fight and should have def won

the Todd Duffy fight was crazy, could believe Mike Russow took all those hits in the first round and was still standing, then the KO in the 3rd round, i nearly lost it

overall a good card

Really? WTF Chuck. He needs to retire and stay retired. His last three fights have been losses by KO.

I don't think anyone in the UFC is ready for Alistair. Dude has knees from hell.

A fighter that I'm starting to pay attention to is Aoki. Mad submission skills.
