Obviously, lots of Brazilians on the card for the home country fans. A few familiar names, though, like Thiago "Rumble" Silva, Matt Hamill, Pahares, etc.Not a stellar card, but sometimes those turn out really well.

Yeah it's hard to tell with foreign cards that have nationality-friendly lineups.  Sometimes we end up with insanely exciting fights, sometimes we end up with guys who aren't UFC caliber.

I am excited for the Kim - Silva fight.  Should be fun and if Kim wins he would only be a couple fights away from a possible title shot.

I'm really hoping the Maia/Shields match hits the mat for the majority of the time. I do not want to see them attempt to avoid each other's ground game in favor of a sloppy slap fight.

I would love to see it on the mat.  Shields was an absolute beast in his prime, but he hasn't been as dominant since about 3 years ago.  Maia, on the other hand, is even better than he's ever been.  Would be great to see, though I have fears it will end up being a 3 round sloppy jab fest

Wow, Maia is an 88% favorite to win on Tapology.  Didn't realize it was that lopsided prediction-wise.

I picked Maia, but it's a toss up AFAIK. Shields could easily when a ground game decision.

Maia's standup is HUGELY improved, and I honestly think he'd rip Shields up on the ground as well. Personally, I strongly suspect Shields is a habitual PED user/abuser, which explains his ups and downs to some degree.

I'm looking forward to the Shields fight. Been having trouble sleeping lately.

Cool.  After the fights is a new episode of TUF, with Jessamyn Duke fighting Raquel Pennington.

Mmmmmmmm.  Jessamyn.

Here are my picks:


www.tapology.com


I expect this  card to be very decision heavy, but I think Palhares and Maia both score submission wins.  I also think that Maldonado vs Beltran should be a very fun fight, though.  I expect that there is a 65% chance Maldonado survives and lands too often on Beltran, and a 35% chance Beltran can score the KO on Maldonado.

END COMMUNICATION

Let's just say you had to put in some work to get this thread changed from red to green, and leave it at that.

Even funnier that you were out of the house...

Hmmm....  I think odds are I had a better time helping my brother-in-law with yard work at a rental property than what was imagined here.

By the way, has anyone here ever had floor seats at a UFC or similar event?

The TUF 18 Finale ticket presale is tomorrow, and I'm considering springing for floor seats, but I don't know if they're worth it.  I was happy with my seats near the front of the elevated section last time, and it looks to me that floor seats might actually have a worse view since you're looking up at the cage.  But if that isn't the case, being a little closer would be good.

Been in floor seats at many small venue events. The view is not good.

I suspected as much.  I'll try to get as close as possible in the raised seats then.  Last time at the same venue, my seats were pretty good.  I could see things pretty clearly where I was, so if I can move up seven rows or whatever it was to right on the rail, that would be perfect.

Meanwhile,nice KO for Patrick.

I was pretty damn sure that fight was going to a decision.

Don't you people have jobs ?

I've been to the 2 UFN shows that came to Omaha and had to skip out of work early for both of them. I wish they'd start later.

Nope.  I'm retired. (although if an X-ray job opened up nearby, I'd take it).  Plus in the eastern time zone it's a 5 PM start tonight.  Early, but not too bad.

3 pm here in Montana land. Perfect timing for me to do dinner prep between fights.

Standing TKO, Brazil's not going to like that.

This one announcer sounds like Joey Styles a bit.. If he could only say "OH MY GOD" once I'd know for certain.

Really good fight.  Mitchell was outclassed, but had really good defense and avoided the sub.

No sooner does Apple take it off the list and we get two cards in a row with an attempt.

It was originally about Rogan jizzing all over himself hoping someone finished with it.

It has become the Loch Ness Monster of submissions

Between fights I checked seat availability, and there were still some left in the front row.  I had planned to wait until tomorrow and use the free UFC newsletter presale, but went ahead and pulled the trigger on today's UFC fight club presale.  I had to spend $75 to join the fight club, but figured it was worth it since it includes the magazine subscription, one free PPV, a DVD, T-shirt, tote bag, etc., and the codes to buy tickets two days before the general public.

Anyway, I ended up getting tickets here: Last time the best I could do with the newsletter presale was section 105, about 7 rows back.

I'd give Dillashaw the first and Assuncao the 2nd.

Prob 3rd to Dillashaw
