UFC Rio: A Told Ya So Thread

SuperNoob2011-08-30 04:15:12 +0000 #1
There are many predictions and picks throughout various threads on the forum (as with ALL cards). This thread is meant to just simplify that and put everyone's predictions and reasoning into one thread. Easier to track that way. Try to keep it to a two post maximum, so that it doesn't get out of control (until later


Make it simple. Picks, how, and at the end of the post if you feel you have to justify or provide your reasoning then do so. Don't get into a flame war and argument. Just pick yer sht and say why. After the smoke clears we can revisit this thread to provide excuses, explanations, gloating, and lulzing.

Schaub - Nog

= Nog (Sub)


- Shogun = Shogun (T/KO)


- Nedkov = Cane (T/KO)


- Okami

= Silva (Operation Rolling Thunder)

Barboza - Person = Barboza (DEC)


Really quickly:

Everyone seems to be counting out Nog and building up Schaub. I think Nog may have a bullet or two left in the chamber, especially in his hometown crowd, so I'm going for the upset (forum-wise).

I don't think Gump v Shogun I is a good reference point for this fight. I see Shogun putting the Nasty Sauce all over Gump.

I chose Cane by flipping a coin. I really don't care or know enough about each fighter's camp going into this one.

Silva. No explanation needed.

I just picked Barboza v. Person because I literally had no clue who would win so I randomly picked the Hispanic name.

I think you're right for the most part. I think forrest is a coin flip, I can see him winning.

Cane is going to mow through nedkov

The lights go out and people start tossing chairs into the cage when Shogun starts gassing from Forrest's relentless mauling.

Yeah chances are goog that the crowd gets out of control at some point.

What are the odds the crowd riots when nog gets ko'd and the main event gets cancelled?

Skinny, not to be a dick (I like your pic), but CMON WITH THE NSFW SIG.

Not going to let this thread derail. Just going to edit this post. Most bosses see tits, they freak. That's all I'm saying.
