Yeah, I don't think this season of "The Ultimate Fighter" did much to improve his image. The guy is a total bada$$ but I enjoy seeing guys like Couture and Franklin who have class and humility in addition to awe-inspiring MA skills.

I'd love to see Hughes lose but I don't think it's going to happen in this fight.

Now, the Franklin vs. Quarry fight is going to be awesome! I gotta agree that it would be hard to bet against Franklin but you never know--this could be an epic battle (let's hope so!)

Hughes opponent has a punchers chance he probably can't match Matt on the ground unless he's on top. I don't like Matts' attitude he is a bit arogant, do I want him to loose not yet. I don't think its bragging if its true.

After seeing Matt survive a near knockout and counter fully engage RNC he has a the heart of a Champion. It would be hard to submit him unless he was stunned early on or he gets KO'd. His opponent got good stand up skills.

I like Rich Franklin he is a class act, Quarry can hit and might be better on the ground? Maybe?

Yep, I ruptured both hamstrings at the same time once and I had those exact marks, same location. I'm fine now by the way even though a doctor friend told me those never really heal up. BTW, I did this playing softball (running from home plate after hotting ball) before starting MA. Now in shape from training, I don't think it could happen again.

So what are all of your picks for the upcoming fights?

Here are my OWN:

*Franklin vs. Quarry: My heart says Quarry but my head says Franklin. Going with my heart on this one; Quarry.

*Hughes vs. Riggs: Easy one. Hughes. Could be wrong but against top-line talent, Riggs has been beaten. Hughes is among the BEST EVER. Hughes here.

*St. Pierre vs. Sherk: WOW! This could be the closest of the night. I believe St. Pierre is more well rounded whereas Sherk is more one diminsional. Of course I could be wrong there. Gotta go with what I know - St. Pierre in this one.

*Horn vs. Prangley: Should be a win for the veteran - at least it should be easier than a fight against Liddell. Going with Horn.

*Jordan vs. Gonzaga: Who the hell are THESE guys, lol?! Only one I know is Kevin Jordan so I'm going with him. Hows THAT for scientific breakdowns, lol?

*Hoger vs. Newton: Ultimate Fighter reality shows be DAMNED! I'm pulling for Newton against Hoger. Hoger is tough, but he was on a reality show. As good as that one was, I hate reality shows on PRINCIPLE! Going with Newton in this one. (I really couldn't say with any certainty WHO would win anyway....)

*Thompson vs. Wisniewski: ???? Flip a coin folks....

*Alves vs. Chalangov: Keep that coin available for this one as well. Your guess is as good as mine.

John I think you've got this spot on with a few exceptions. I think Hoger will win his fight. My heart as well says Nate Quarry but Rich Franklin is the favorite. I think it will be a good fight and Rich will get rocked a few times but I think in the end that he'll win ... but I'd like to see Nate come out on top.

I'll be watching Saturday night ... glued to the tube. You and I can cheer Nate on see what happens. Positive thoughts.

Franklin vs. Quarry, want quarry to win, but I think I will bet on Franklin to win my money, might do a sidebet with this one and add to some of the other fights
so Franklin to win here

Hughes vs. Riggs, hughes, no doubt
know it is wrong, but I see riggs as a "rookie"

Horn vs. Prangley, Horn to win this one...

damnit, have to get back to work....
