I just saw the first Weidman/Silva fight yesterday (i missed the first fight when it was Live), and it was clear that if Silva hadn't have been screwing around and taunting Weidman, he wouldn't have caught that lucky punch that put him out. This time I expect to see Silva come out on a mission, and take Weidman's head off, probably in very short order. Within the first two rounds, most likely.

As for the other fights, I really don't care. I just hope they are competitive and entertaining.

I was thinking about picking Tate just for the upset points, and for the fact I like her butt, but decided against it

I see the three of us are thinking the same things for the main and co-main events. I normally wouldn't admit this, but I *hope* Anderson wins this fight. If nothing else it will shake things up again.

I've got the family Christmas get-together this evening, so I'll probably miss the first few prelims, but should be home by the main card at the latest.

Enjoy the festivities.  The first two prelims don't look too great, but the third one, Howard vs. Bahadurzada might be one you won't want to miss

Luckily I can DVR the Fox Sports 1 prelims, so I can catch it after the fact if I'm late. Should be a slugfest.

Made my picks a week ago. Fighting the urge to change a couple.

So, most people think the 6 oclock special announcement is going to be a Brock Lesnar - Shane Carwin fight

I'm hoping it's something else.  Both are decent to watch, but the fight would be meaningless
 
2013-12-28 06:08:23 PM  
Ok, the announcement stuff is on.  So far, they're talking about UFC FIght Pass, their new streaming network.

THey'll have a library of hundreds of Pride, Strikeforce and WEC fights, as well as many UFC fights from the 90's bringing the total up to 3000.  THey'll also have 150 live fights this year.
 
2013-12-28 06:09:51 PM  
It sounds like the whole thing is a way to connect with international audiences.  So, it's not going to be as appealing to us from the States.

No one picking against Silva and/or Rousey?
 
2013-12-28 06:45:58 PM  
hell.. just noticed EVERYONE here so far has Silva 2nd round KO, and I'm the first one to think Tate can take Rousey into the 2nd round (THEN lose her arm)

I'm still trying to decide if I want to head over to a friend's house to watch the main card at 10 or to go to a bar.

A live feed from the arena. Mostly techy stuff (OB tests etc) but you get to see Joe and Goldie recording segment links for fight time every now and then.

Brandao came in massively overweight and was involved in a car accident two weeks ago. Still a better pick than Tate.
 
2013-12-28 06:55:28 PM  
Does anyone think it's going to be Silva by KO/TKO in Round 2 and Rousey by submission in Round 1?
 
2013-12-28 06:57:01 PM  
Weidman gonna make Silva pay for taking some of his glory from last time.
 
2013-12-28 06:57:09 PM  

you are a puppet: Does anyone think it's going to be Silva by KO/TKO in Round 2 and Rousey by submission in Round 1?


I dunno, it's hard to tell.
 
2013-12-28 06:58:22 PM  
HELLO ALL!  I am at the In-Laws for the month of December, but I will still catch this card.

You know what I got for Christmas?

Fat.  I got fat.

(Actually, I give Weidman > 50% to win, but having to pick the method makes me choose Silva for max points.)
 
2013-12-28 06:59:34 PM  

WTFdoesitmatter: Brandao came in massively overweight and was involved in a car accident two weeks ago. Still a better pick than Tate.


If the car accident caused him that many problems, he should have pulled out.  Dana would have understood, especially with the pictures.

But coming in 7 pounds over, as a little guy, is huge.  No excuse, car accident or not.

Lots of folks. But I'll go with Weidman by TKO in 2 and Rousey by armbar in 2.

The great thing about Weidman/Silva is the unpredictability. Literally nothing would surprise me. Anderson by flying knee 20 seconds in? Weidman by slam 90 seconds in? 5 round war? All almost equally likely. Crazy.
 
2013-12-28 07:04:18 PM  
It begins!

Agreed. It's Tyson Zone.

Q: I think Ron Artest has entered rarified air now. He's officially a person who, if a friend said, "Did you hear that (fill in celebrity's name) just (fill in the insane behavior: urinated on a police officer, began breeding unicorns, etc.)?", I would have no problem believing it was true. I think this space is occupied by Mike Tyson, Michael Jackson, Courtney Love, and the late, great ODB. Can you think of any others?
-- Brendan Quinn, Philadelphia, PA

Bill Simmons: First of all, fantastic theory. I think we should call this "The Tyson Zone." Others who qualify: Dennis Rodman; Omarosa; R. Kelly; Landon from "The Real World"; Najeh Davenport; Suge Knight; Flava Flav; Brigette Nielsen; anyone in G Unit; Billy Joel; Andy Dick; Lindsay Lohan's Dad; Anna Nicole Smith; Margot Kidder; Tara Reid; Lil John; Gary Busey; Ricky Williams; any pregnant female; the late Bison Dele; Liza Minnelli; Paris Hilton; and Henry Winkler.


Margot Kidder? Henry Winkler???  Anyway, can't wait.

Nice to actually hear a corner be honest. "One and two, I dunno, they're up in the air. You need to knock him out."
 
2013-12-28 07:20:05 PM  
Right round, right ending, wrong guy...
 
2013-12-28 07:20:33 PM  
And there it is.
 
2013-12-28 07:20:34 PM  
I'll take the win, if not the method.

Ronda Rousey has never won by flying gogoplata
Ronda Rousey has never beaten the UFC's Bantamweight women's champion
Ronda Rousey has never knocked out Tank Abbot

As a newer MMA watcher, can someone explain to me the "Cecil Peoples is the devil" meme?  I have read a bit about his "leg kicks don't win a fight" declaration, but that doesn't seem to be enough for him to be the horrible, despicable, mentally deficient judge that the MMA community holds him in.

Well there are plenty of bad judges, but he just has a particularly bad reputation.
