  1. I would like to see Overeem get the knock out..

  2. I gotta go with Overeem on this one. He has the size and strength to keep it standing while picking him apart.

  3. Yeah Dos Snatos really exposed werdum. But he has world class BJJ and could possilbly submit him

  4. tuff 2 call it all depends were the fight ends up for me

  5. yes, i can't stand fabricio. come in with a six pack at least! overeem will bull rush and KO fabricio.

  6. yeah werdum already beat overeem, and if it hits the mat he will probally do it again, werdum didn't respect dos santos and paid for it but he is better than that.

  8. think champion was an error…. should read "former UFC heavyweight"

  9. Cobra Clutch says:

    This is going to be a really good event. I'm happy that Strikeforce and Affliction are putting up good cards now that the consolidation of UFC/WEC/PRIDE has long been done, so MMA fans can enjoy more quality fights than just what the UFC offers.

    Can't wait for Saturday's UFC 100. Amazing card from preliminaries to main event.

    Let's get it on!!!!
