Chuck Liddell Vs. Quinton Jackson
Terry Martin Vs. Ivan Salaverry
Josh Burkman Vs. Karo Parisyan
Houston Alexander Vs. Keith Jardine
Kalib Starnes Vs. Chris Leben

Thiago Silva Vs. James Irvin
Sean Salmon Vs. Alan Belcher
Jeremy Stephens Vs. Din Thomas
Carmelo Marrero Vs. Wilson Gouveia

I'll give you my always inaccurate picks -

Chuck Liddell Vs. Quinton Jackson - Tough one. I'm going with Jackson
Terry Martin Vs. Ivan Salaverry - don't know
Josh Burkman Vs. Karo Parisyan - Parisyan
Houston Alexander Vs. Keith Jardine - Jardine
Kalib Starnes Vs. Chris Leben - Starnes, just because I don't like Leben

I won't get to see this as I will be in Comox, BC during this time. I however will set the PVR to record this and watch it Sunday night so I won't be back on here after today until probably Monday at which time I can see how everybody picks.

Matt is correct, this is a tough one but I believe that Liddell has progressed enough since his last fight with Jackson whereas I think Jackson has gone the other way. His last fight and debut in the UFC with Marvin Eastman was nothing spectacular. Eastman is certainly not a top fighter at the age of 37 and I think the UFC gave Jackson an easy fight thought I thought Eastman gave great effort and did rather well. Jitters and all for Jackson, perhaps knowing he will be fighting Chuck this will give him the incentive to push more however I'm sticking with Chuck. Anything can happen though as we seen with GSP or Rich Franklin.

Ivan Salaverry, my fellow Canadian and TKD guy ... my money is on him. Nice to see his return to the UFC.

Josh vs. Karo ... another difficult choice. Josh works hard and has really surprised the UFC. Karo is a natural talent and has great Judo. I am going for Josh as I like the guy but I won't put it past Karo to win.

Jardine against Alexander. I don't know anything about Alexander as this is his debut in the UFC. I will go with Jardine but only if he keeps up the hard work like he fought Forrest Griffin.

Starnes against Leben. I like this match up, I like it a lot. I like Leben which makes me one of the few probably however I also like Starnes. I give this one to Starnes as he is more technical and I think can "out fight" Leben. Leben is a tough guy so we shall see as if he loses this one then I think we won't see him again unless they have a "where are they now" Ultimate Fighter show.

And for the undercards:

James Irvin over Thiago Silva
Alan Belcher over Sean Salmon
Din Thomas over Jeremy Stephens
Wilson Gouveia over Carmelo Marrero

Hey Tom, when you start dreaming about the UFC, it's usually a good indication that you're getting unhealthily interested!

Rampage v Liddell- Tough one, but I think Chuck will win. He has brilliant sprawling skills and great boxing to boot. Rampage is certainly a good fighter, and very entertaining, but I don't think he can stand with Chuck, and I don't think he's going to get a chance to do his whole slamming thing.

Parisyan vs. Burckman- I don't know much about Burckman, but I like Karo and I'm pleased to see him competing again. His takedown skills are simply brilliant, and I think his striking is underrated.

Rampage has got a helluva chin, and he's got that killer instinct. Although I think Chuck has become possibly the better fighter, it's not by a lot. If Rampage comes out with his game on, and puts his heart into it, I can see him winning this on sheer hustle and effort.

I'm a Chuck Liddel Fan but its really hard to beat a man thats already beat you. Chucks a puncher its really hard to beat a bigger man thats a puncher. Remember Frazier and Forman in boxing, Frazier definitely the better technican but the smaller man. Thats all it was Chuck probably walkes around 205-215lb Jackson probably walks around at 235-240lb of muscle. Jackson raelly only had to train to strike Liddel rarely try a takedown.

One thing I'll say he must trully believe in his striking to not try to change somethings. Who would have thought CL knocked out in the 1st round .

Quintin Jackson is a horse.
