Ufc 160

Anyone else amped for this?

Who are you picking?

Personally, fight I'm watching out for most is Hunt vs JDS... Hunt's a cool guy, and it's awesome to see a kiwi getting up there. Best of luck to him. Velasquez vs Bigfoot is going to be an interesting match as well; we'll see what happens there.

Re: Ufc 160

I'm hoping for good fights, but I'm not expecting them.

IMO, Cain and JDS are on a different level than the other HWs out there. Since they can only fight each other so often, the rest of their time is going to be spent knocking off overmatched competitors. I don't think either Hunt or Bigfoot can handle the speed or pace that Cain and JDS can put out. If I'm right, Hunt vs. Bigfoot would be a very interesting fight down the road.

A fight that I expect to be more competitive is TJ Grant vs. Gray Maynard. I think Maynard will have too much size and strength, but he's been injured for a while and Grant has been on a roll.

I had no idea that Hunt and JDS were fighting. I've been casually watching the previews (obvisouly not close enough) and just took at peek at the full fight card. Much better than I thought. Don't know much about James Te Huna or TJ grant but Teixeira and Maynard usually keep things interesting so we'll see I guess.

Agreed, but I have to say that I was sorry to see Te Huna out in the first round. Good sub though.

Also, gutted about Hunt vs JDS! But boy, what a war that was!

Re: Ufc 160

I cried after the Hunt fight......

Robert Whittaker amazzzing!

Most entertaining fight of the night for me was Halloway and Bermudez.
