    I went 8-6. Not bad. Looking back I don't know why I picked Shogun.

    I might make a small bet... probably Gamburyan + Nijem in the same ticket. And maybe add a third one...

    Rua
    Overeem
    Faber
    Brown
    Hall (Excited to see him fight after TUF)
    Lauzon
    McDonald
    Holloway
    Brown
    Brandao
    Gamburyan
    Donovan
    Nijem.

    This one should be an exciting one! Rua, in my opinion, is a much higher caliber fighter in terms of striking, so I personally think he should have this one in the bag for the main event. Also, as overrated as I think Alistair Overeem is, I don't think Travis Brown has a fighting chance. All pun intended.

    Sonnen won via guillotine choke during the first round! He didn't give Shogun much of a chance to fight back. I used to hate Chael Sonnen, but I have to say, after the thrashing he just gave Shogun, he gained some respect with me. I still find it hard to swallow all the arrogance coming coming out of him. At least I got the co-main event right! What a knock-out that was by Browne, I wonder what's next for The Reem.

    That arrogance is part of his allure, and it's an act. There have been several interviews where he's completely normal, but when there are enough eyes on him, he makes his flamboyance count. I think he's entertaining as hell. I am surprised that he caught Shogun in a guillotine, though. It looked like Shogun was going to pop out for a second, but Chael immediately readjusted and it was game over. It sucks that Shogun is slowing down already, even though he's only 31. Those wars and injuries are paying their tolls.
