Hendrix
Koscheck
Maia

    you forgot ellenberger and kampmann

    and gunnar is legit, i think he's a bit small for Welterweight though.

    Gunnar will dominate tommorow he's a beast but he's in a stacked division with a lot of wrestlers so hopefully he is working on his striking otherwise he will likely struggle against the top guys he can't get down to submit.
    Bet Record- 76-43

    UFC Survivor series tournament 1 winner

    It's so cool that my partnership with my best friend and lover Antawn can be recognized as a marriage! DOMA is unconstitutional!

    guy does have good standup, i think mills might go undefeated this year as well, hes very talented but just not rorys level in the grappling department and i reckon rory would tool most of the wrestlers just like gsp does at ww.

    he should work on his wrestling, look what happened to Maia, he started focusing on stand up and messed things up. Nelson should be training wrestling like crazy.

    nelson has a decent karate background where as maia had no real stand up experience prior to mma.

    I get what you're saying and agree takedowns would definitely help his game but it wouldn't hurt to keep working his striking too. I'm not saying it is too bad for a guy like Santiago and he should become primarily a striker like Maia thought he was for a time, he should just keep improving there so he has a backup plan incase he gets matched up with someone he can't/will struggle to get down guys like Koscheck, Hendricks etc.

    as i said, it's not likely but i actually think gunnar's striking is great and he'll shock the world
    B-)
    yea he's primarily known for his ground game (sick with the submissions), but Im really impressed with his stand-up as well. If he cant get it to the ground I really like his chances at a tko/ko.

    Oh I just updated the list of talent at 170... and it seems to me that there is more talented fighters at 170 then there is in any TWO divisions, COMBINED!!!

    Let's see..

    Bendo
    Melendez
    Nate Diaz
    Gray Maynard
    Cerrone
    Jim Miller
    Guillard
    Jamie Varner
    Joe Lauzon
    Pettis (??????)
    Frankie (?????)

    Yea not bad, but 170 is easily the toughest division. Im sure I'm forgetting a few at 155 tho.

    He has never fought a guy as good as Jorge. Cant say the same for Jorge. He has fought and beaten way tougher opponents.

    No way a white boy with a LW frame is going to consistantly control a solid well rounded former mw like jorge for 3 rounds. Dont be stupid and fall for da hype, this is a terrible matchup for this kid. This will be Santiagos breakout fight.

    Gunnars a submission guy, and Jorge has never been submitted. I think Jorge will pull off an upset

    If I recall you have never picked a correct fight. Meaning... whatever you say, the opposite will come true.

    And this is the reason GSP has a difficult time, he has numerous opponents who can dethrone him and we would not be all too suprised. Unlike A. Silva weak list of MW fighters.

    There's only a list of fighters that could beat GSP because he's not on Anderson's level. If Anderson dropped down we'd be talking about how weak WW was within a year.

    If GSP went up to MW and Anderson left the division we'd be talking about how stacked MW is and how GSP vs Alan Belcher would be an amazing match up
