Default Picks for UFC 77

Anderson Silva by KO, I think he'll catch Rich again someway though probably not as early this time.

Tim Sylvia by Ko, vera is just too small for him and Sylvia is very mentally tough.

Scafer decision, never been impressed with Bonnar.

I think Rich knows he needs to win this fight by getting on top of Silva and pounding him out. I think that's how it will end. Could be a quick stoppage unfortunately.

Big Tim will UD Vera unless he catches him with a few right hands and KOs the bloke.

Bonnar will KO Ravishing Red when Shafer makes the mistake of trying to bang with Bonnar.

I also pick Jason McDonald over Okami.

Gurgel will win by finally taking a fight to the ground and will sub Robinson
out.

I don't really care much about the other fights although Black vs Grice might be interesting.

You really think Rich has the wrestling skills to take silva down and control him, let alone pound him out. Silva is stylistically a horrible fight for franklin, in my opinion.


And Im gonna go with Okami over Mcdonald. Mcdonald is tough, but I just see Okami outwrestling him and avoiding the submissions for a decision.

What's wrong with Silva's mental state exactly?

I guess I didn't see any of that. The press conference I watched on Youtube didn't show any lack of confidence in my opinion. Silva said that he got his visa about a week ago and that as far as preperation for the fight, it was unchanged and really didn't sound like that big of a deal from what he said. I also didn't hear any question regarding his confidence. He seemed like the typical Silva too me.

I didn't notice any difference in his actions during the weigh-in's as well. What I did notice was the look in Franklin's eyes during the stare-down...much more confident. Honestly, I don't think anything is wrong with Silva's mental state.

I think Rich has the strength to get a takedown from the clinch and I think if he has Silva on the cage, he can get take him down. I don't necesarily see him shooting in the traditional sense. And I really do think Rich knows his chance is on the ground so he might get an ugly takedown or two and then try to capitilize.

I think Silva is just chilled out.

Silva will not lose...

I cant see Sylvia dominated by Vera, hes big, tough and well prepared.
If Vera dominates Silva or KO him... Veras got a huge future in 205 and heavy

MacDonald at +230 and Schafer at +250 are great values.

If he eats a big knee or a nasty shot he can very well be pounded out on the ground. Ok, wishful thinking
