Maia is too good on the ground so I don't think Fitch can do his normal thing. I think it'll be an entertaining fight. I'm usually the first one to bash Fitch but I enjoyed his last fight against Erick Silva and the one against BJ Penn. There was a lot of grappling in those fights but Fitch wasn't just holding them down, he was doing damage and trying to finish.

Biggest I can recall him weighing in for a fight. Nowhere near as cut as he typically is, but I guess he wanted the extra weight due to Bigfoot's size.

They really are. The guy's frame/head is absolutely enormous, but his arms (probably in large part due to the comparison) are pretty small.

I'm really looking forward to this fight.

I hope those guys do some damage. Not even asking for a lot, just some damage. Iwant to see someone in serious trouble at least once in that fight.
Rick story & Eric silva say hello.

In relation to the picks, why don't we just award a pt per correct pick an let everyone pick whatever the he'll they want, removing the win % making the tallying easier? Also, as m9 already said, we need to make sure everyone follows the same pick outline so the guy tallying can get through it quickly.

Funny what a discussion does, there appear to be numerous people willing to help....

I dont imagine there is much he can do about it. He's so large that if he put on any additional muscle I don't think he would be able to make 265.

He weighs 285 so he's already cutting down 20 lbs to make weight. Any more muscle and he probably wouldn't so it makes sense.

Genetics play a role too. I have naturally long/lanky arms, compared to my upper body, just like he does (but I have a waist lol), so it is really hard for me to increase the size of my arms, especially with high bicep/tricep insertions.

I'm not really sure what to count for this card. I think I"ll do the main card for this one since not everyone picked the whole card and in the future do the whole card for PPV and FOX cards. Calculating the standings is not bad when there's one event per month but when there's 3 or 4 in a month it can be tough. Maybe just the main card for Fuel and FX cards

Kimura seems like a nice guy and he's pretty good on the ground.
