155#: Matt Grice (10-2) vs. Shannon Gugerty (11-3)

My picks:

Brock Lesnar - Thinking his training under Erik Paulson (or was it Greg Nelson?) will do him good. Don't think Mir will get an easy sub this time and Mir won't escape Brock's g&p.

GSP - Until he loses, think GSP is on the top of his game. Hard to beat now. Although apparently he has a swollen elbow or something which may or may not affect his performance.

Dan Henderson - I want and think Hendo wins, but part of me remembers how he eeked out a win against Rich 'Ace' Franklin and lost to who was it? Rousimar Palhares (sp?) ... his better fights may be behind him.

Jon Fitch - Don't really know Fitch or Paulo Thiago well, but looked up Fitch's record... think he wins by decision.

Stephan Bonnar - Think Bonnar will pull off a sub after Coleman gasses... I like Coleman from back in da day, but feel he should probably retire.

Tomorrow night will be a special night... the 100th UFC event... 16 years! I remember when I watched the first UFC, I couldn't sleep that night, I was so hyped up on the sheer adrenaline of watching martial artists test their disciplines against other disciplines.
