My picks: Barnett, Silva, Souza, Lawal, and Blanco.

Maximo Blanco is awesome to watch so hopefully he can have a good showing. I don't know how exciting the main two fights will be, but this card would've been pretty awesome if Overeem was on it. Still really good, though.

Part of me is very excited to see Roger Gracie fight again, but I can't imagine this fight being anything other than a boring and safe wrestler's decision for Lawal.

I think King Mo will keep it standing and beat up Gracie pretty good.

He'll certainly try anyway. But he's gotta know if he takes Roger down he's pretty much screwed.

Has anyone come across a line for the Bigfoot/Cormier fight? Even though I picked Bigfoot I may lay some coin on Cormier.

I don't see Gracie getting Mo to the ground. Should be an easy decision on the fight for Lawal

All you guys picking Cormier are wack.

I will be surprised if he is still standing after one minute.

Yeah I really doubt Cormier wins this fight, he's probably gonna get smoked. Way too small for Bigfoot

Betting on a wrestler as good as him is never whack.

A wrestler that thinks he is good at stand up usually doesnt end well.

I like Cormier and all, but this is the worst possible matchup for him. No idea what the odds are but I wouldn't touch him.

But hey, I guess look what Mike Kyle did for a round against Silva. Ya never know.

That's true but we're talking about Antonio Silva here, not Anderson Silva. The only "skill" Antonio Silva has is his size. I think Silva will most likely win but I'm still picking Cormier.

Mike Kyle is a good striker that was able to catch Silva on the feet. There's just no way an undersized HW like Cormier can control a monster like Silva for 3 rounds. I don't even think Bigfoot is that good, this is just a bad matchup for Cormier

He will most likely use his striking to set up takedowns.

Cormier is working with Cain @ AKA. I would not be completely shocked if he keeps it standing for a bit. Not like it is Andy silva.

Cormier is a slick wrestler if any undersized HW can control Bigfoot it is him.

(or Hendo obviously)

I agree, we are talking about the highest level of wrestler here, someone who trains with the #1 HW in the world on a day to day basis. It's certainly possible he gets the win.

some pretty even fights, went with Bigfoot but a great wrestler like Cormier always has a shot.
