    Quinton Jackson vs. Matt Hamill KO round 1
    Frank Mir vs. Roy Nelson UD
    Stefan Struve vs. Travis Browne TKO round 1
    Thiago Alves vs. Rick Story UD
    Brian Stann vs. Jorge Santiago Sub round 2
    Miguel Torres vs. Demetrious Johnson UD
    Kendall Grove vs. Tim Boetsch Sub round 3


    KOTN- Rampage, although i wouldnt be surprised to see dana give it to stann if he gets the ko, being memorial day weekend and the pay difference.
    SOTN- Santiago.
    FOTN- Mir-Nelson or Alves-Story

    Mir vs. nelson is so hard to pick, i could easily make a claim for either. Stann vs. santiago is also a tougher pick. I usually go with the more experienced guy with the better skillset, but santiago has struggled with guys that are aggressive and have power. Ill still take him by sub, he doesnt have great td's but stann's tdd is unknown.


    somebody please sig bet me on struve-browne. I just dont understand the struve hype. He is very unimpressive and even in some of his "better performances" he takes a beating. Browne is a real prospect that people should be looking out for. Iv seen some of his lower level fights and he has a ton to offer. He has huge ko power. Better standup technique and is a huge man himself. Cant believe almost everyone is picking struve.

    Travis Browne has beat a lot of cans. He's a powerful striker but Struve has actually fought some really tough guys, been in some wars and won. His only 2 losses in the UFC are to Roy and JDS. I'm not saying that I don't believe Browne can KO him but IMO, that's the only way he can win the fight and I doubt it.

    Your sig is mine. 2 weeks.

    EDIT: Btw, thanks for everyone who wished me luck on the pickem's! Good luck to everybody who participates.

    Good.

    Having roy and jds as your only losses is nothing to be ashamed of, browne would lose to both of them as well. Struve has definitely faced the better competition. You make some valid points. But if your going off the eye test, browne seems to have more of a killer instinct and finishing ability.

    You will see your sig when struve crumbles to the ground like a big tree or tall building.

    I really believe that people like Bill Murray or John Belushi are just as great and just as valid as Robert De Niro or Al Pacino. And I don't think you can say One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975) is a better movie than Animal House (1978); they're different genres. I think they're both examples of great craftsmanship.
