    Jackson vs Griffin

    A little over 24 hours until the Pay-Per-View but im getting pretty pumped for it already.

    If Griffin can make the fight go into the late rounds he is going to be hard to beat.

    I got Jackson winning though but its going to be epic.

    I can't wait to watch it tomorrow. Who do you guys think will win?

    Should be an awesome card. I hope Rampage finally puts an end to the over hyped TUF reject Forrest.

    Heh, can you tell I don't like Forrest? He shouldn't have won the TUF contract. Bonnar won that fight. Now every TUF fanboy on messageboards like Sherdog thinks the goofball is Fedor or something. He should be fighting at heavyweight but because he knows he has a big advantage over smaller fighters he stays at Light Heavy.

    205 is 205 man you could be six foot 7 inches and be 205 and the other dude be five foot five 205 still the same weight class. Just because super tall dude has a height and most likely a reach advantage over said little dude doesnt mean he'll win.

    Hey now i like the U.F., I'm no fan of FOrrest but i wont call him over hyped dude has fought hurt and beat one of the baddest dudes at 205...cant really knock him for that

    It's not just the height though. He walks around when he is not fighting at 230 plus. He cuts a lot of weight to get to 205. Come fight time he is way over 205. Just look at the Shogun fight. He used his height and weight advantage.

    Shogun was not like the Shogun of old in that fight but I will give Forrest the credit for that win...remember though Forrest also got destroyed by the other TUF reject Jardine.

    I'm gonna go with Rampage but it wouldn't surprise me if Griffin managed to win. I don't care how out of shape Shogun was for their fight a win over Shogun is still impressive

    Anderson Silva walks around at 215 naturally.

    Im sure most of these guys try to cut weight like that when the time comes.

    Working as hard as they do they probably have huge appetites as well lol.

    I dont know how out of shape Shogun was.

    The tempo was just set at a fast pace for that fight and there isnt many guys at 205 who can hang with Forrests Cardio.

    If its a fast pace fight tonight and Rampage doesnt end it early Forrest could do the same to him.

    Its impossible to gas that guy I think.

    you should have your gripe with weight cutting in perticular the large amount these fighters cut. Matt hughes says he walks around at 190 lbs. only tu cut 20 lbs to fight at 170. I read Rampage was almost 240 before he started to get ready for this fight.

    The majority if not every fighter cuts weight. It's asinine to hold that against a fighter. "You cut weight! I hate you!" Um, okay.

    I don't see anyway Rampage loses this fight. Rampage by whatever he wants. I feel bad for the winner of Almeida/Cote. For winning this they get to be decimated by Anderson Silva later this year.

    I'm interested in the Gonzaga/McCully fight on the prelim. If Gonzaga loses he's done with the UFC for awhile.

    If Koschek gets by Lytle - which he should, but Lytle is always game - he would consider dropping to 155 for a chance to fight Penn.

    BJ Penn would maul Josh "the blanket" Koscheck like Lion killing it's prey.

    Forrest won.

    I dont think he did enough to take the title off the champ but hey what ever.

    Great fight. Rampage about got his leg broke and still hung extremely tough.

    There will definetely be a rematch. I see no reason for Rampage not to be the #1 contender.
