I have the same picks, except that I expect Bonnar to extend his losing streak to 4 straight. Leben fighting again so soon? If I remember correctly it was suppose to be Akiyama-Wanderlei, wasn't it?

From Wiki:

On June 22, 2010, Wanderlei Silva had to withdraw from his co-main event fight against Yoshihiro Akiyama due to three broken ribs and an injured right knee.

Damn, WTF happend to Wand.?

i was really lookin forward to wanderlei vs akiyama. then found out he was out and replaced my leban. really killed it for me. but i will agree the only fight im lookin forward to now is brock vs carwin. though it will be nice watching akiyama dismantle leban

sotiropolous pelligrino will be a decent scrap as well.

This card blows? This card is fn DOPE!!!

I got Lesnar GNPing Carwin out. Chris Lytle vs Matt Brown is going to be one of the fights of the year. Lytle will win this one again in this rematch but Matt brown has improved so much so he'll give Lytle a good run for his money. Leban vs Sexyama is pretty much the same fight but Leban's just not as good as Wandy but same style pretty much. Sexyama should pull this one out in a crazy fight. Pelligrino vs George is going to be an fn sick fight! George should take this though. The most underrated lightweight ever! And the Bonnar fight should be a good one with Bonnar taking a decision he was going to get in the 1st fight.

Don't be ungrateful! This card going to produce fireworks. Totally worth the money. Especially since in boxing you get the main event plus a ****ty undercard. This is a badass main event with some badass undercard fights that WILL produce fireworks. I'd buy this over Manny-Clottey, Floyd-Shane anyday of the week.

-Carwin (Carwin has 25 minutes to land one shot, I like those odds)
-Leben (Akiyama's lack of enthusiasm in this fight will do him in)
-Lytle (FOTN)
-K Soz (I hope they dump Bonnar's useless ass after this)
-Sotiropolous (Kurt won't be able to handle George on the ground)
