I noticed the UFC 88 thread was a mix of 88 and UFC 87 talk, so figured let’s do 87 justice and give it its own thread.
I’m really excited to see GSP-Fitch. Fitch has worked damn hard to get to where he is today and it’s great to see the UFC rewarding him finally with a title shot.
I think GSP will win, but Fitch is going to make him earn it.
Florian-Huerta is being hyped up as a Fight of the Year candidate already. These 2 do have that potential; I just hope they can somewhat live up to the hype and deliver a solid fight.
Florian’s impressed me since his loss to Sherk. Huerta is always improving, but it will be interesting to see how he does with the long layoff. I’ll go with Florian.
Brock Lesnar-Heath Herring is intriguing. I want to see how Brock has developed his game since his loss to Mir. Herring’s better days might be behind him, but we thought that about Mir and it seems that guys who fight Brock come in with extra motivation. Guess no one wants to lose to a former pro wrestler.
I see Brock winning this one, and it will be quick.
I’ll add more on the other fights when I have time.
