UFC 123: A Fairwell to Penn and Page
Karo Parisyan vs. Dennis Hallman
I have a hard time rooting for Karo but I feel bad for the guy. He'd better impress tonight.
Karo by judo throw through the cage. Hallman ends up in a pile of fence-grated cheese on Mike and Joe's table.
George Sotiropoulis vs. Joe Lauzon:
Fight of the night potential for sure. George has the edge on the mat, Joe has the edge standing. USA! USA! (I agree with 98, whose template I thieved for this post.)
Lauzon by surprise TKO Round 2
Phil Davis vs. Tim Boetsch:
Phil Davis will give Boetsch the same beating Boetsch gave David Heath..
..and then drop down on Tim's lifeless body and begin devouring his entrails. Davis by mauling, rd 1.
Matt Hughes vs. BJ Penn:
For me to even pretend I have a technical handle on how this fight will go is moot because I'm rabidly rooting for my mancrush BJ Penn. I just can't help but see his career as burning out while Matt's has found new life. Also- we all know Matt won't gas and we all know BJ probably will after 2, especially if he winds up on his back.
I don't pick against BJ Penn.
Lyoto Machida vs. Rampage Jackson:
Machida will avoid getting hit and pick Quinton's legs apart. By the 3rd round when Page is immobile, frustrated, and tired, Lyoto will finish him. Having said all that I agree with 98. Go Rampage. Love ya. Knock the Dragon out of the picture.
Machida by TKO, rd 3.
