UFC 88 this saturday!

I'm really excited for this card. All five main card fights feature a top 10 ranked fighter in their weight class.

-Chuck Liddell (#4 Light Heavyweight in the World) vs. Rashad Evans
-Rich Franklin (#3 Middleweight in the World) vs. Matt Hamill
-Karo Parisyan (#10 Welterweight in the World) vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida
-Dan Henderson (#9 Middleweight in the World) vs. Rousimar Palhares
-Nate Marquardt (#8 Middleweight in the World) vs. Martin Kampmann

Should be a great night, but then again I might be biased since Hendo, Franklin, and Liddell are pretty much my favorite fighters.

Love Franklin but don't know Hamill; what's his story? Will that be a legit fight?

Re: UFC 88 this saturday!

hamill is the deaf guy that Tito loved on ultimate fighter. Great wrestler, strong, but lacks the stand up game. Rich is going to walk through him...

It might be a tough fight for Franklin since Hamill and him are (or at least were) friends. Hamill tought him how to wrestle.

Re: UFC 88 this saturday!

Hamill is a good wrestler, and strong. But he has no chance standing with Rich, probably can't submit him if Lutter couldn't, and I doubt he can keep him on his back. I think Rich just out classes him. He has so much more high caliber experience. Hopefully a late 1st TKO.

Ditto... Great Card tomorrow.

And lucky for me, my buddy just got a new keg in his keg-erator!

It's a George Mounce UFC Saturday... I'm going to share the Bacon Cups and Fritattas with our friends... oh, and did I mention beer?
