  • 1. Sell (I think if Mendes gets him first Mendes is also tougher and better)
  • 2. Sell (Why would he?... Hes still great.)
  • 3. Sell (He may get title shot but he isnt going to be champ)
  • 4. Buy (Yes Diaz is solely because he is dangerous everywhere the fight is)
  • 5. Buy (Yes I believe Faber will pick up decision)

1. Sell - Florian always does poorly against the top guys. He moves divisions after he loses and after this fight he has nowhere else to run.

2. Sell - After GSP beats Diaz I would like to see Anderson knock him out, then retire. But then again I doubt GSP tries to come up, I think Anderson could make a run at 205.

3. Sell - Carwin is a great fighter and I think he will beat JDS. But against Cain, I think he will be clobbered much like Brock was.

4. Sell - Diaz is the most overrated fighter in MMA. He beats UFC rejects for a living and acts like a boss.

5. Buy - Faber is a very very tough guy, and I don't think Cruz has the punching power to knock him out. As far as a submission goes, I don't see that happening.

I would be shocked if Anderson retired after the Okami fight.

Buy- if before mendes as previously mentioned

Sell- I think he'll let the GSP fight talks run its course and see how that one plays out or maybe even give 205 a run

Sell- I can see him getting a shot possibly but i dont see him beating cain

Buy- its been quite some time since he's faced someone so dangerous off of their back

Buy- thats the most likely outcome with cruz being the winner IMO

1. Buy - though I still think Ken-Flo would choke again
2. Buy - Only if the GSP fight dosen't get made, which I see as happening
3. Sell - unless he works on his cardio and there's either a mass injury spree or a sudden darth of talent
4. Sell - On paper he's not. But come fight night that may not be the case. But since we won't know for suretill then I'll go with Sell.
5. Buy - Both guys are so skilled that - again on paper - the only course seems to be decsion.

1. Sell - Florian has to first get past Nunes, and he's always looked good against contenders, but never fares well against top tier fighters in any weight class.

2. Sell - If Okami beats Anderson, I'm sure Anderson will want a rematch. If Anderson beats Okami (and I'm sure he will, then Anderson is going to want one more fight either against Sonnen or GSP to prove once and for all that he is the greatest of all time.

3. Buy, but Carwin has to first get past JDS. JDS and Cain might have problems if Carwin can last more than one round.

4. Buy, but Diaz has had problems in the past with wrestlers, and GSP has the best wrestling adapted for MMA.

5. Buy, but Faber has already finished Cruz once before.

1. Buy - I know Aldo was sick vs Hominick, but his gas tank looked suspect once he was fighting someone who was REALLY fighting back.. and Kenny would be fighting back.
2. Sell - I just don't see it happening. Too many unanswered superfight questions. (GSP, Jones)
3. Buy - He'll get it very soon.
4. Sell - Saw it the 1st time when it was Alves. Saw it the 2nd time when it was Hardy. Yaaaawn...
5. Buy - I couldn't imagine any other outcome.

1. Buy (The FW division is much weaker than the LW) 
2. Sell (Anderson still has fights as long as he's winning)
3. Sell (He was already interim champion once don't think he will regain it.) 
4. Sell (Diaz actually might be GSPs least dangerous opponent in a while aside from Hardy and Serra) 
5. Buy (It is likely this sees the final bell especially if Cruz retains.)

Buy. Kenny can fight well everywhere and he's very hungry for a title and experienced.

Sell. Anderson could retire in Brazil after beating Okami but I think he wants a super fight. Jones or GSP

Sell. Would love to see it but I believe the HW division will not allow it. (JDS/Cain/Brock)

Sell. Penn/Shields/Koscheck/Fitch. Enough said.

buy. Little dudes fight to decision a lot

  1. Sell Florian screw up when he fights for something

  2. Sell He will face Bisping(if he steamroll Mayhem) or move to LHW.

  3. Sell No way he will get through Cain.

  4. Buy No safe fight for GSP. Diaz is dangerous standing and when took down his guard is even more dangerous.

  5. Buy Those little fellas have hell of a cardio and endurance. :)

Sell - Kinda tough to tell until Kenny's actually had a featherweight fight.
Sell - I can't handle that right now.
Sell - Need to see Carwin get past round 1 without gassing first.
Buy - Diaz is someone who will keep coming at GSP with everything he has, no hesitation.
Buy - Both guys are extremely talented and Cruz has improved a lot since their first fight.
