    My only disagreement there is Baroni and GnP. He's not a GnP fighter, he's a stand and land "SnL" type fighter. He's not as easy to takedown as people think, and if Frank can't get him down he could be in trouble. Frank has better technical and more complete striking, but Baroni's got the power to offset everything. If he comes in swinging, Frank is going to have to be completely on his game and sharp as a button. Fighting instincts that you might not have after however many years away from legitimate MMA competition. Again, I picked Frank and agree on the ground he'll probably embarass Baroni, but still it's not as much of a "gimmie" fight for Frank as people seem to think.
    I agree with you, I talk sh!t about Baroni but im not gonna lie.. in the back of my mind I can see this goin his way and I think that would be bad for Frank if he lost to Baroni but it could happen, and any loss for Baroni is a bad one cuz he talks so much sh!t.

    I know Baroni sure isn't the caliber of Hughes, but...............
    Hughes Gracie was just a money fight . It was all hype, Gracie made his legacy tapn out Boxers, wrestlers, and Karate instructers. Gracie cant wrap Franks hands before a fight, so ther is no comparison.

Age is not a factor Randy proved that . However I think he has a part ownership in StrikeForce, but I may be wrong. If not he has a lot of say who fights at the organization.
    hes only 34 so age is def. not a factor he can still grow as a fighter.

    That would be sweet to see him in WFA vs someone like Mayhem like you said. I'd definitely pay to see that match. I'm interested to see how many shows that WFA will put on per year. Do you have any info on how active WFA will be as far as putting out events?
