he needs to close in 3 rounds. if he's behind when entering round 5, he aint getting that belt back due to lack of staminia/cardio.


also, Randy Conture vs HeavyWeight BOXER Toney.
yeah, i see Conture taking the fight to the ground REAL quick!

I was just thinking about this one. Just watched the weigh-ins. I missed the first Penn/Edgar match due to the weird time thing IIRC. Not a bad card at all. Some nice match ups while nothing too eye catching. I'll be watching for sure.

UFC 118 Card:

Main Card:

* Frankie Edgar Vs BJ Penn (Lightweight Title Fight)
* Randy Couture Vs James Toney
* Damien Maia Vs Mario Miranda
* Kenny Florian Vs Gray Maynard
* Nate Diaz Vs Marcus Davis

Prelims:

* Gabe Ruediger Vs Joe Lauzon
* Andre Winner Vs Nick Lentz
* Dan Miller Vs John Salter
* Nick Osipczak Vs Greg Soto


I'm looking forward to the main events and the Diaz/Davis fight. And Dan Miller always puts on a good show. Those Miller kids are tough SOB's, winning or losing. I see Toney getting his butt kicked. I would love to see Couture try to stand with him for a bit, just out of spite....

The UFC is definitely setting Toney up to get smashed. But Couture's chin isn't the greatest.

couture doesn't look so serious going into this, it could bite him

I'm thinking he scores an easy takedown but theres always a punchers chance

Randy is only losing if he gets caught, once it hits the ground its over.

I also predict BJ finishing Edgar. He will come roaring back watch.

Rooting for Edgar and Toney. Edgar because I believe he won the last one and he didn't get the credit he deserved and Toney for the lulz. I'm looking forward to seeing Davis vs Diaz the most though.

I think BJ will win but I'd like to see Edgar win. I think he did a great job last time and didn't get much credit for it. Although I think it's messed up that one judge scored 50-45, meaning Edgar won all 5 rounds (??), while arguing he won 3 rounds is very reasonable.

I'm excited to see the Couture-Toney fight. I don't think Couture has as good of odds that some say, but Couture is likely to win and I hope he does.

I'm watching one of the standard standalone Sopcast feeds (24267) but I'm always looking for a Veetle feed these days since it's much better quality.

Wow Nate Diaz dismantled that Marcus....

The submission was a mercy out. Nate could beat most lightweight boxers.

I watch here sometimes for some of you still looking: http://www.firstrow.net/sports/boxing-wwe-ufc.html

Wow, did Nate Diaz just outclass Marcus Davis in that one? Not the first time we've seen that either. I don't know why they don't throw this kid to the wolves and put him up against GSP or Fitch or Koschek or something. He's pretty awesome.

I started feeling kind of bad for Davis at the end of that one. That eye/face was utterly ridiculous.

I don't know why he doesn't get bigger fights.

Nate and his bro like the weed too much.. They have been kicked out of fights for it before. Its hard for the UFC from a liability and insurance standpoint to put millions on the line for someone that may not pass a drug test.
