Awesome card IMO, Torre's and Ellenberg's matches I can't say much about since I don't really know their oponents or them all too well, but the rest of the card is going to be some great fights.
Silva - Belfort, I see Silva taking it for all the same reasons as said above. Belfort probably has better hands than Silva, but Silva just has so much bigger of an arsenal, that unless Belfort has suddenly made a change into a superior wrestling machine I see Silva taking it by a TKO in the first two rounds.
Still, Belfort is the kind of an guy who can just change the whole script of the fight by landing a good shot, so its going to be exciting and a great display of standup fighting. I'd like to see Silva get KO'd though, but then again, if he wins we are probably going to get GSP - Silva and who wouldn't like to see that?
Griffin - Franklin, for the ones interested in betting I see some great value on Forrest with odds ranging from +140 to +160. I think they are pretty equally matched, both will look to bring in a good fight. Rich may have the edge in the technique, but I think Forrest's size advantage is enough to even it up. Hard to say who will take it, but I see Forrest getting his hand raised after a 3 round war.
Bader - Jones is going to be another fuck of an awesome match. I'm really suprised how big underdog Bader is considered in this match, and there is some value there too in my opinion. Bones hasn't really faced anyone even close to the top so far, whereas Bader atleast had a test in diet-Nog some time ago. Whatever happens, I hope this won't be another display of Greg Jackson's snore fighting system that would include a lot of hopping around and lay and pray, so hopefully Bones can come out and play his own game and Bader can play his, that would make for a great fight.
Considering Bader big overhand right, I don't think it would be all that big of an suprise is Greg just decided Bones better not get the crowd too excited but play it as safe and boring as possible without any of the flashy Bones stuff...
