    Yeah, shoulda done this last week, but eh.

    UFC 87: Seek and Destroy

    Non-televised:

    Ryan Thomas(9W-1L) vs. Ben "Killa B" Saunders(5W-0L-2D)
    Don't know enough about either one. No prediction.

    Steve "Hollywood" Bruno (12W-3L) vs. Chris "The Professor" Wilson (12W-5L-1NC)
    American Top Team vs. Team Quest, hmmmm... I'm gonna go with Wilson.

    Jon "Bones" Jones(6W-0L) vs. Andre Gusmao (5W-0L)
    I have heard good things about Gusmao so he is my pick.

    Cheick Kongo (21W-5L-1D) vs. Dan "The Viking" Evenson (10W-2L)
    I feel sorry for Evenson. Kongo by highlight reel KO.

    Luke "The Silent Assassin" Cummo (9W-6L) vs. Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory (10W-1L)
    Contrary to his record, Cummo can scrap whereas McCrory's big test ended like this:
    [​IMG]
    However, that was against Akihiro Gono, so it is excusable. I am going McCrory in potential fight of the night. By sub. But McCrory NEEDS a better nickname. At least he doesn't drink his own pee though.

    TELEVISED UNDERCARD

    Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald(21W-9L) vs. Demian Maia (8W-0L)
    I am going with Maia by sub. MacDonald is a tough mofo, but Maia is a demon on the ground.

    Manny "The Anvil" Gamburyan(9W-3L) vs. Rob "The Saint" Emerson (9W-6L-1D)
    I prefer Gamburyan's other nickname, "The Tanklet." He is built like tank and lays on his opponent like a blanket. I don't like Gamburyan, but there is no denying that he is a skilled fighter. Grey Maynard beat the crap out of Emerson and I say that Gamburyan is gonna maul him. The Tanklet by Sub.

    Co-Main Event
    Kenny "KenFlo" Florian (9W-3L) vs. Roger "EL Matador" Huerta (22W-1L-1D)
    How can a guy with 24 fights under his belt only have one real challenge until now? Huerta is a rising star and El Matador is the UFC's golden boy for getting in with the hispanic crowd. Florian will bring Huerta crashing back down to earth hard, with a sub in the second round. Maybe KenFlo can win some fans over with his fluent spanish. The winner gets a shot at BJ Penn. Good going UFC, way to punish accomplishment. :supergrin:

    Co-Main Event
    Brock Lesnar (1W-1L) vs. "The Texas Crazy Horse" Heath Herring (29W-13L-1D)
    While Herring has the definite experience advantage, having as many draws as Lesnar has wins, Herring has shown a weakness against strong wrestlers and you will be hard pressed to find a heavyweight with Lesnar's wrestling credentials. That combined with Lesnar's insane power, speed and distinct size advantage means that The Texas Crazy Horse is getting put out to pasture. Herring's only chances are a flash KO while Lesnar's coming in for a shot or use his so far unseen submission skills. Lesnar by ground and pound stoppage in the first.

    Main Event
    UFC Welterweight Championship.

    UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION
    Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
    5'10" 170 lbs.
    (16W-2L-0D)

    vs.

    CHALLENGER
    Jon Fitch
    6'0" 170 lbs.
    (21W-2L-0D)

    St. Pierre has the definite advantage, but Fitch is riding a 15 fight win streak with 8 of those wins in the UFC. Fitch is tough but St. Pierre seem preternaturally gifted. I will bravely pick staying on the fence for this fight.

    Non-televised:

    Ryan Thomas(9W-1L) vs. Ben "Killa B" Saunders(5W-0L-2D)
    I've never even heard of these guys.


    Steve "Hollywood" Bruno (12W-3L) vs. Chris "The Professor" Wilson (12W-5L-1NC)
    I'll pick Wilson in this one.


    Jon "Bones" Jones(6W-0L) vs. Andre Gusmao (5W-0L)
    Jones here


    Cheick Kongo (21W-5L-1D) vs. Dan "The Viking" Evenson (10W-2L)
    I agree that Kongo will win this with disturbing ease.


    Luke "The Silent Assassin" Cummo (9W-6L) vs. Tamdan "The Barn Cat" McCrory (10W-1L)

    TELEVISED UNDERCARD

    Jason "The Athlete" MacDonald(21W-9L) vs. Demian Maia (8W-0L)
    I don't think MacDonald has too awful many tools to use, but I say that experience will win here.


    Manny "The Anvil" Gamburyan(9W-3L) vs. Rob "The Saint" Emerson (9W-6L-1D)
    Emerson here

    Co-Main Event
    Kenny "KenFlo" Florian (9W-3L) vs. Roger "EL Matador" Huerta (22W-1L-1D)
    I think this will be the fight of the night. I'm not even sure who to pick for this one. It'll probably come out as a decision.

    Co-Main Event
    Brock Lesnar (1W-1L) vs. "The Texas Crazy Horse" Heath Herring (29W-13L-1D)
    Herring here. Lesnar is just big and looks intimidating.


    Main Event
    UFC Welterweight Championship.

    UFC WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPION
    Georges "Rush" St. Pierre (16W-2L-0D) vs Jon Fitch (21W-2L-0D)


    St. Pierre here, every day, all day and twice on Sunday.

    :embarassed:

    Wrestling pedigree isn't everything though, look at Mark Kerr. He was unstoppable for a period of time, got off the juice and now isn't even a shell of his former self.
