Sanchez over Palelei, in boxing Palelei would be the classic big guy expected to fall hard
Cane over Irvin, it goes to the ground where Irvin's useless
Gamburyan over Mohr, Manny's got something to prove in the wake of the TUF 5 finale (which he'd have won but for the injury)
Lister over Radev, Lister took this one as a resume padder
DeSouza over Carneiro, based solely on facial hair preference
Bocek over Evans, Evans has no chin (literally, not figuratively)
Silva was a beast over in Pride, I am not ready to admit that just yet. Liddell however better figure out what the problem is and fast if he loses this one it'll be back to square 1 for him.
"My gut says"
Hughes over GSP - Submission
Liddell over Silva - KO
Sokoudjou over Machida - KO
Guillard over Clementi - KO
Sanchez over Palelei - Ground and Pound TKO
Irvin over Cane - KO
Gamburyan over Mohr - Submission
Lister over Radev - Unanimous Decision
Carniero over DeSouza - Split Decision
Evans over Bocek- KO
BTW in case some haven't heard it will be Forrest Griffin and Rampage Jackson as the coaches for the next TUF season. Which frankly cracks me up as I am not sure I see either as a viable "coach".
But for the fight afterwards between the 2 I gotta go with Rampage unless he get's too comfortable/lazy and isn't ready for a war.
