    LOL – Anyone who thinks Bader is even going to last more than 10 mins Vs Jones is on crack & has NO CLUE about MMA, let alone to say Bader is going to beat Jones. Thats so funny, you guys are comedians – where do you do your stand up shows at?!? hockednAwed & uncanny390 – I Will bet my mmaweekly subcription for a year – HAH!!! Not to sound like a jerk, but Bader over Jon Jones?!? WOW – u guys might want to re-think those picks. I’d like to see Belfort come out like Sonnen did Vs Silva – which was run towards Silva & dont let him get comfortable and then attack, I can see Belfort doing that & then Silva will be KTFO, jsut like what Belfort did to Wanderlei!!! Franklin Vs Forrest…….. could go either way, both got KTFO by Silva but Franklin might have the edge in experience, but Forrest trains with Randy.C, so hes game plan will be taylor made to fight Franklin!!! Bader beats Jones…… OH MY!!! WOW

    yup i have to agree. bader has a punchers chance thats all..I dont know what people are watching if theyre thinking bader can beat jones. Watch all baders fights, his stand up is SHITTY. def tuff guy. but jones wins first round tko. im not sure if whats gonna happen with silva and belfort if silva fights at his best, i dont think belfort can hang, but if he lets belfort beat on him like sonnen he will get put to sleep. Forrest ovr franklin but im guessing a decision.
