Re: UFC 119 Picks

Nice picks! Tomorrow is actually a solid card!

Mir by mauling. He'll beat CC up & down on his feet and on the ground, RD1 sub.

Bader vs Nog is a real hard pick. Bader is a monster but you gotta give Nog credit. I am pulling for my homeboy to upset but Bader will likely win a decision.

Dunham by total domination. I actually think Dunham will shock a lot of people by choking the juiced shark out.

Stephen by decision.

Doerksen is going to upset CB with a slick sub after roughing him on his feet.

Tavares by sub.

Re: UFC 119 Picks

Good picks! I'm going for Mir by sub in first round and Bader by decision. It is a tough call for Bader and lil Nog, but I think Bader will pull thru. I'd be surprised of anyone of em get a submission with their training.

Cro Cop is good, but he is a "has-been"

Re: UFC 119 Picks

Agree with you guys on the difficulty of picking Lil Nog or Bader.

I give Nog mad credit. But, I'm still trying to figure out what happened against Brilz. If the loss can be attributed to the fact that he was prepared to fight Forrest and not Brilz then he gets a pass. But, if it's because he couldn't deal with the wrestling then I don't know how he's gonna handle Bader. Nog can win on the feet--he's a much better boxer than Bader. The problem is Bader's power (as ungainly as his punches are!) and top control should Bader execute timely doubles & singles. It sounds strange to say it considering Nog's jits pedigree, but he has to keep this thing standing or catch Bader off balance when he's transitioning on the ground.

In my heart I want Lil Nog to win, I think he & his brother represent MMA so well--great athletes & martial artists, respectful, humble, professional, and tough.

Re: UFC 119 Picks

One of the worst cards I've seen in awhile.

If the fights weren't crap, the suspect judging ruined anything that had the decency to be good.
