UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites

Iceman vs. Shogun Rua


I'm definitely putting my $$ on Silva to KO Leites in round 1. The Spider is coming for fuckin' blood this fight!!

Iceman needs a win right now & he knows it. Round 2 KO over Shogun.

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

I'm thinking Silva TKO in round 3. Leites has a helluva chin, both Kampmann and Marquardt hit him with some bombs and dude never quit moving forward. I wouldn't be surprised if he does take Silva to the ground, but I highly doubt he will submit him which is probably his best chance of winning.

I think Chuck is going to win in round 2 as well via TKO. Although both have had spotty performances in their recent bouts Chuck always brings cardio to the Octogan, whereas Mauricio "So Done" Hua gases in the first few minutes. Hua also looks like he's having trouble adapting with UFC rules. He used a lot of soccer kicks back and head stomps in his PRIDE days... overall seems like a really good card

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Silva over Leites because the only person in the world that can beat Silva is Fedor. (75 pds heavier)

Im gonna say Shogun is gonna stop Chuckie. I hope not, but I think thats how this one is gonna go. I will be rooting for liddell.

Stann over the Polish Experiment.

Kongo is gonna murder Hardonk.

Cantwell over Cane

Why this one is an untelevised fight?? Macdonald over Nate Quarry.

Another why?? Herman over Loiseau. This is Ed Hermans last chance to prove himself after 2 straight losses and we all know he fights his heart out. Louiseau is a very tough opponent for him. If herman loses this one, it will be because hes sleeping.

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming--WOW--WHAT A RIDE

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Silva and Shogun. I still dont get why theres so many UFCs with watered down fights. They should go back to having less events w/ better cards. I refuse to pay for this crap.

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

obviously Silva, he's the man. No one can touch him

I want chuck to win, but hes getting old, his body can't keep up with his heart, but if he gets lucky, his huge hay makers will knock someone out.

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Some great fights. I am pulling for Chuck to get back on track and I think David will take Ed Herman. As said before I do not think anyone can take Anderson as that guy seems to be in a class by himself right now.

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Thales Leites is pretty good though guys. Remember, his only loss came to kampmann (who) in the UF4 finale by U DEC.. Hes pretty powerful and his jiu jitsu is MUCH better than Silva. If he can get Silva to the ground without eating a knee then I think he can beat silva. Problem is, that is a million times easier said than done.

Agreed...Shogun was unable to put away a Coleman that was running on empty for two rounds. At the end Shogun was just as gassed as Coleman. I think a motivated Chuck will take this one.

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Leites looked like he was not wanting to fight Silva and Chuck seemed out classed (shocked). I was hoping Chuck would make a good comeback. Will this set up some sort of fight between Silva and GSP?

Re: UFC 97 -- who ya got?

Poor Chuck. I kinda feel bad for him. He can't catch a break.

Like Joe Rogan said "The gladiators all fall on their shield if they stay in the battle long enough."
