MMA stands for mixed martial arts. It is still commonly referred to as "ultimate fighting" by many, much to my chagrin. The UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) is the largest mixed martial arts organization in the United States. It still isn't sanctioned in many states due to lingering perceptions of it being "human cockfighting", to use John McCain's words. However, it was recently sanctioned in my home state, and I'm pretty excited about it.

Thanks for the info, Korg. This topic, however, is not my cuppa tea.  : (

My predictions:
BJ should beat Diego TKO, KO, Sub... lots of ways he can do it.
Hopefully Kongo KTFO Mir (likely to be Mir by Sub though) 
Fitch beats Pierce by unanimous decision. 
Florian TKOs Guida (via GnP- elbows) 
Struve submits Buentello  
  
Some decent under card fights, anyone know if they are going to air them live before the PPV? I heard they werent...

Also wanted to add that I'm pumped to see Dan Henderson vs Gregard Mousasi. They should let Dan fight Shields first, so he can win the middleweight title. Then hold a PPV supercard with Henderson vs Mousasi for the light heavy belt, and Fedor vs Alistair Overeem for the heavyweight title.

  According to The UFC's Official Site, they are actually showing fights from UFC 109 on TV before 107. I think that might be an error though.

    as far as UFC 107 goes... I only have hopes for some of the fights at hand... I would like to see Diego Sanchez beat BJ Penn... but I dont think he can... and I know Kongo is in trouble with Frank Mir... Kongo has No Ground Game... 

    on another note... its good to see Cung Le back in action... everyone knows he is the Greatest Middleweight MMA Fighter in the World... jk

    #13 Posted by Korg (11931 posts) - - Show Bio
    @King Saturn:  Fitch/Pierce and Florian/Guida should both be good fights (Fitch/Pierce will probably be a bit one-sided, but Fitch is usually fun to watch). As for Diego/BJ, I assume you just don't like BJ?

    I will laugh so hard if Scott Smith manages to KO him...

    I'll laugh even harder if he does it with a kick.

    I want Diaz/Le, so I actually hope Cung Le wins.

    I think Diaz will submit Le easily

    I agree... Kenny Florian and Guida will be another great fight on the Card as well as Jon Fitch and Mike Pierce... and you are correct... I am not really a big BJ Penn fan... though I wasnt much of a fan of Diego Sanchez until his Insane Battle he had with Clay Guida...

    lmao @ your second statement... that would be something if Scott gave Cung Le the Dan Henderson treatment... lol

    Yeah, it would probably play out similar to Smith/Diaz. So fighting Cung Le would actually be a step down in competition.

    They should just have sheilds fight him.

    Shields need to fight Hendo so Hendo can move on to his second of three belts in Strikeforce. 
     
    On a different note: UFC 109 is starting to look pretty awesome.
    • Couture/Coleman
    • Little Nog/Vera
    • Marquardt/Sonnen
    • Serra/Trigg

    I haven't heard anything since he had to pull out against Werdum in August. I imagine Scott Coker is trying pretty damn hard to set up Overeem/Fedor right now.

    He used to cut a lot of weight to get down to 205 in PRIDE, which is why he usually gassed in the first. His muscle growth is not outside the bounds of someone who is simply lifting weights without steroids. Don't get me wrong, he's retaining a lot of water, and it's a possibility, but it's not a sure thing.

    " mir or kongo? "

    well Frank Mir has a better overall game than Kongo... Kongo is a Mad Crazy Striker... but his Ground Game is suspect... possibly Non Existant... lol where as Mir has solid Jiu Jitsu skills... so I am afraid if Mir gets Kongo on the ground... the fight could end in favor of Mir rather quickly...

    I still find it amazing how much Pro Boxers get paid so much compared to Top MMA Fighters... Roy Jones Jr. got paid 10 million dollars for essentially 3 minutes of action where he was stopped in the first round by Danny Green... the current Cruiserweight Champ... and yet I dont believe there has been any MMA Fighter to break 5 million for a fight...

    I am happy Henderson went to Strikeforce as well... though I would be even happier if and when the Mousasi vs Henderson fight does take place that Strikeforce will be kind enough to show it along with the rest of the Card on Primetime Network TV like they did Fedor vs Rogers... cause I dont have Showtime... and sometimes the people at Hooters are real ass about showing other MMA Fights on there TVs outside of the big UFC PPV Events...
