Let's pick 'em. I'll start:

Georges St-Pierre Vs. BJ Penn - Despite the fact that BJ pretty much beat the crap out of GSP in stand up, I'm thinking that GSP will take it again. GSP should be smart enough to not do another kickboxing match with Penn, and his wrestling is good enough to make that happen.

Lyoto Machida Vs. Thiago Silva - Probably Machida. And while I like Machida's character and skills, he is the MOST boring fighter I think I have ever seen. Remember the fight with Tito?

Stephan Bonnar Vs. Jon Jones - Pulling for Bonnar.

Karo Parisyan Vs. Dong Hyun Kim - Don't know about Kim, but Karo has been very uneven in his MMA career. If Karo's on, he should take it.

Nate Diaz Vs. Clay Guida - Looking forward to this one! I think Diaz will take it, but Clay is a hell of a fighter, too. Should be a very exciting match.

Jon Fitch Vs. Akihiro Gono - I like Fitch here. Too bad what Dana is doing to him now.

Chris Wilson Vs. John Howard - dunno

Jake O'Brien Vs. Christian Wellisch - not sure

Matt Arroyo Vs. Dan Cramer - dunno

Absolutely. I actually kept flicking over to the News during that fight.

Going with GSP too. Is anyone betting on Penn this time round?

I'm Canadian, I would be kicked out if I even considered Penn. All kidding aside, Penn looked better then he has in a long time in his last fight. He had decent energy and wasn't huffing and puffing or leaning on the ref or his corner people.

I met GSP at one of his training seminars and was a big fan prior and a bigger fan now. That was about a month prior to winning the belt from Matt Hughes. Any ways, he is a superb athlete and trains hard; harder then BJ Penn ever has. While Penn has a chance he is no where near the fighter that GSP is; standing or on the ground. GSP had to work for everything and takes nothing for granted; Penn is a sliver-spooner and has natural talent that he has taken too many things for granted. He'll never obtain the training level that GSP has and why GSP is going to win this.

I honestly don't think this fight should have taken place. Penn should be defending the Lightweight title!

While I like GSP, and think he will take this fight (probably by decision), to say that he is better than Penn in stand-up is a big question mark to me. Penn beat GSP's face to a pulp (eyepoke notwithstanding) in their last bout. The only thing that saved GSP was his takedowns.

I think both guys have improved tremendously, and don't expect GSP to be dumb enough to try to stand with Penn this time. It would be a mistake if he did, IMHO.

Penn will look great for 2 minutes, then ok for another 4 minutes, then gas and lose. Its what he does best.

He hasnt got the conditioning to deal with GSP

I agree with cord fully. GSP is a maniac and has way too much cardio for Penn to put up with for more than one round. Plus the fact that Penn is going up weight for this fight he is gonna gas even easier.

I have all the same pics for basically the same reasons as Matt. The Guida Diaz fight intrigues me though. I like Diaz a lot and the way he fights, but Guida litereally fights like a caged animal, so really anything can happen there. Pulling for Diaz, but would not put money on that one.

I'm going with BJ on this one.

And whats with all this natural talent hate? I see it more as a focus on technique, vs a focus on athleticism.
