    I feel sorry for Wilson. Lets give Larson a big fight after he is done with this one. Plenty of fresh blood at 170 for The Lycan Larson.

    The last five fights are going to be awsome. I’m going to call it Sherk,Miller,mcfedries,hughes, and Evans.Even though ther’s no telling as to who’s going to win. I reaally hope Machida gets handled. I’m not a machida hater but honestly his style is to elusive for me and i’d hate for him to become our champion. he seems like a really cool guy though and I really admire how he Cherises his samurai roots. Either way this is going to be a great night of fights. Does anybody know how many more wins till sherk gets a titile shot. I herad Sanchez is to get one if he beats Guida. If thats the case he should have to face sherk before that happens, assuming that Sherk wins this next one.

  • PlagueAngel says:

    It would be shocking to see Sanchez get a title shot before he fights Sherk. The UFC does not want Sanchez to lose, so maybe they will try to avoid Sherk until he loses against BJ or Florian. Personally I don’t think Sanchez will beat any three of those guys.

  • Bullylover says:

    I think that Sanchez my have the size over Florian and possibly his number. I really don’t see him beating penn or Sherk though. To good jits/boxing-Bj,wrestling/boxing-sherk.
