He's supposedly fighting Woodley in May so it looks like 170.

Cool. I like Nate but I wish he didn't choke so much in the big fights.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

So who does everyone have on the big event this weekend? I'm gonna roll with:

Bendo
Rampage
Hunt
Shields
Okami
Hioki
Lauzon

...I gotta a feeling I could be going 3 for 7 there.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

So the PPV is on at the normal time, but what time is it actually happening?

And are they airing more fights on the PPV than normal?

It's live, and there's 7 fights instead of 5 on the PPV. Prelims start on FX I think at 8EST.

I'm going with

Bendo
Rampage
Kongo
Shields
Okami
Hioki
Pettis

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Yeah, I thought I read it's scheduled for 4 hours in case all 7 fights go the distance.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

I'm done picking against Edagar. That little bastard always seems to find a way to win. Bendo is great but we've seen him struggle in the past with good strikers (Pettis).

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Least shocking news of the weekend, Rampage weighed in at 211lbs.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Hioki looks about 1000x better than he did against Roop.

And of course after I type that Hioki decides to stand with him and struggles in R2.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Hioki is such a badass on the ground. Hope they put him against Aldo soon. That will be a hell of a fight as long as Hioki doesn't do something stupid, which is a possibility with him.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

Rogan's on-air orgasm about Boetsch's comeback was OUTSTANDING, OUTSTANDING... OUTSTANDING.


OUTSTANDING.

That has to be the greatest Rogan highlight of all time.

This is going to be a fascinating fight to see how it's scored.

Re: The Official MMA Thread - Part IX

If there ever was a draw, this was it.

I do think they should have taken a point away in the 3rd. But I'd probably go 1st round - Sexy, 2nd - 10-10, 3rd - Shields.

Edit: 30-27 across the board seems a little nuts, Sexyama really wasn't doing anything, but he was doing more damage.

In retrospect it's funny, Shields would have been better off staying in Strikeforce.
