Quick! Name 3 picks you are most confident in , and 3 you are not!

most confident:
- Perez>Figueroa ( Goyto shouldnt have any problem in this one )
- Elliot>Bagautinov ( Elliot seems solid )
- Dunham>Cerrone ( for whatev reason )

most unconfident

3.- GSP>Hendricks ( as the way title shots have gone lately.. I'm feeling insecure,even tho GSP is a machine and is hella smart )
2.- Sonnen>Rashad ( Bad matchup for Shale, but the guy like challenges )
1.- Lawler>MacDonald( if Rory will come to the battle with a game plan a la GSP, i see him winning and dodgeing the power of Lawler )

Greg, I'm the opposite. I feel we're in for a very boring evening plus we're due karmically for one after 166. So I only picked 4 decisions but it's a safe bet there'll be more.

Plus personally I'm predicting myself to have a bad evening because I'm rooting for the guy I picked to lose in the top 3 fights :)

Damn it @dielegende that is a bad omen for my pick against GSP taking Hendricks. I'm not gonna switch though, other than two decisions in a row his career for the most part goes KO,decision,KO,decision. It seems silly, but I've noticed that certain fighters have a bit of a pattern.

Funny enough I have gone against Hendricks 3 times and have been wrong.

Looks like a lot of decisions. which means there will be a lot of finishes. that's how it usually goes for me.

@fresno nah, in fact it's only so-so for a big PPV.  which indicates that mainstream people aren't that pumped about this card.
