I’m starting to get really excited for this weekend. First, tomorrow night is the FIGHT! Magazine party. I’m not sure if my blog readers are aware, but FIGHT! is a property of BLUFF Media which I own a small piece of. Whatever you think of BLUFF, you have to commend them for growing FIGHT! mag so fast and so well. I know that I am still a n00b compared to some MMA fans out there, but I happen to think that FIGHT! is a really good magazine and I’m doing my best to not be biased at all. Anyway, they’re having a party in Atlanta tomorrow night and a bunch of people should be there, so it will be fun.
Also, of course, the actual UFC event is Saturday night. I just got my ticket:
Thanks to FIGHT! for that.
In terms of the fights, there aren’t really any ones that I think will be amazing fights. I think it’s Liddell over Evans, Franklin over Hamill, Henderson over Palhares, etc. I don’t really know much about Yoshida, but I have seen Parisyan many times and I really like his style, so I guess I’ll say he’ll win too.
And actually, I think Evans over Liddell is the most likely upset. I’ve never really been a huge fan of Liddell’s style. But he’ll probably win anyway, so I can’t reasonably pick Evans.
