Okay, I may be jumping the gun here calling out some potential upsets, but all the same, I won’t lie about the fact that I’m throwing down a couple hundred on Diaz to topple Gomi.
I am jaded by the fact that Diaz is my favorite fighter, even supplanting BJ at the top of my list because the guy simply shows up to fight every fight. So maybe I’m betting based on prejudice, never a good idea.
However, I also believe Trigg will beat Misaki. Pose whatever arguments you will, you aren’t going to convince me otherwise right now. I can’t stand Trigg’s commentating, but after hearing what he had to say before his fight with Miller and then seeing him perform, he has made me a believer. Misaki will not win this one.
Hendo vs Silva. Now I know Silva is the overwhelming favorite in this fight. BUT, there’s always a but after such a statement. Hendo is always a game competitor, and as the better wrestler, he could take Wanderlei down and dominate…
it isn’t as if Silva has ever proved to have a good submission game from his back. This is a maybe upset, not as possible as the other two, but possible all the same.
Rest of the card is not shaping up as competitively, but man I am way more excited about this than I was when it was just Silva vs Henderson.
Diaz is going to win godammit.
