Here are my picks:

Ricco Dec
Fedor TKO
Cro TKO

Silva Dec
Yoshida Armbar in a work, or Tamura Dec in a shoot (bold, huh)
Jackson Dec by beating the shit out of Busta who is too tough to tap or get TKOd
Liddell Dec

If Ricco is going to win by decision, he is going to have to totally dominate the fight (which I don't think is very possible). He isn't going to get a close decision win against Nog in Pride.

I agree. In fact the chances that he will do enough to win only to get robbed is the reason I'm not laying heavy Ricco +275.

On the other hand, it is pretty hard to win a decision from your back (where Mino will be).

We will see on the 10th.

wait did I write Silva Dec? that must be a typo.

I meant to say Silva by cold blooded murder, RD 1.

Nog is better on the ground and standing. For me, if he lost, that would be the biggest upset of the night.

Went with Sak, Nog, Overeem, Fedor and Sak to win the whole shibang.

Not sure what Sak was thinking...decided to stand-up and trade with Silva again and paid the price. We certainly don't need to see those two fight ever again.

Ricco got a bit of a raw deal. Fought a very good fight...didn't dominate like the announcers portrayed it though...he never really did much besides have top position with minimal GnP. Nog kept shooting off sub attempts and almost had Ricco a few times...like I had said, Ricco needed a KO/TKO or clearly dominate to beat Nog in Pride.

Probably the best MMA event I've watched. Every fight was either a great 3 rounder or had awesome KO finishes. Mucho props to Bustmante for the effort he gave against Rampage on only 4 days notice. Super fight.

Ricco's ass must be pretty sore after that decision. He's probably on the phone with his lawyers right now.

All of my predictions were right (Ricco clearly did enough to win), someone throw me a beer. Although Yoshida's fight was obviously a shoot IMO. I also picked Hoffman over Paul B +130. If my gay boss had given me my paychecks in time to bet, I could be a rich man right now.

If I bet Ricco I'd be about ready to pee on those judges.
