No hes not, his twin brother is the heavyweight, who I drafted in the 2nd round. There is just a mix up of Rogerio and Rodrigo on the front page.

i made my pick of Antonio Rodrigo "Minotauro" Nogueira why do i got penalized cause charm doesnt know the difference?

1. I know more about MMA than you and almost everyone on this board.
2. Did you really think Little Nog went in the 2nd round?
3. Did you really think someone like Gonzaga would go before the 2nd best HW in the world?
4. I had HW and the Picture of Big Nog on there, put 2 and 2 together

Fenikz

HW Gabriel Gonzaga
HW Tim Slyvia
LHW Maurico Rua
LHW Wanderlei Silva
MW Anderson Silva
MW Denis Kang
WW Matt Serra
WW Jon Fitch
LW Vitor "Shaolin" Ribeiro
LW Roger Huerta

Sylvia and Gonzaga form a respectable HW duo. Nothing that will set the world on fire, but both are top 10, Gonzaga top 5. Love the combo of Shogun and Silva. Shogun is the best 205 imo and Silva is very good as well, he is top 5. Silva and Kang form yet again a good combo. I love how Silva fights and think Kang is vastly underrated. WW is the weakness here. Serra is not a top 10 talent, yes he should be drafted because he beat GSP, but I donít like him. I like Fitch a lot, he is underrated greatly, but he is not quite top 5 yet due to level of opposition. LW is also somewhat weak imo. I like Shaolin a lot, he is very solid. Huerta I feel is very overrated. He makes exciting fights, but his opposition has been bad, and some of the fights have been close. I have a feeling he is getting by on a sweet tattoo rather than pure skills, he doesnít crack my top 10. Good team overall tho.


It's all about The U

HW Mirko Cro Cop
HW Josh Barnett
LHW Thierry Sokoudjou
LHW Tito Ortiz
MW Nathan Marquardt
MW Robbie Lawler
WW George St. Pierre
WW Hayato "Mach" Sakurai
LW Nick Diaz
LW Shinya Aoki

Love your HW. Sure Cro Cop lost, but he is still great and Barnett is awesome as well. I think u have 2 of the top 4 HW. LHW I am not crazy about. Soko, I hate personally, but it is impossible to deny what he has done. He has two awesome wins, no doubt, but that is it so far. Yes he was impressive, and I do buy him as top 10, but not top 5. Tito should not have been drafted imo, I donít think he is a top 10 talent anymore, and if he is it is barely. MW is OK here. Nate is a good fighter who I think is underrated. Robbie Lawler is one of my favorite fighters so I may be biased, but he is the freaking man. As of now he is top 10, but he has the talent to be top 5 imo. LOVE your WW. GSP is one of the most talented fighter in the world p4p, enough said. Sakurai is underrated and is a very, very good fighter. Like your LW too, Diaz is coming off a big win. I donít love Diaz, but he can be pretty good at LW, he is a potential great pick if he follows up the gomi win with other wins, that has not been his style tho. Aoki is great, sick subs. Like your team, pretty well balanced, and very strong at a weak division in HW.


LTgiants

HW Fedor Emelianenko
HW Antonio "Lil Nog" Rogerio Nogueira
LHW Quinton Jackson
LHW Forrest Griffin
MW Paulo Filho
MW Jeremy Horn
WW Rich Franklin
WW Shonie Carter
LW Manny Gamburyian
LW Norifumi Yamamoto

HW could have been amazing. Still very good because Fedor is God, but Lil Nog gets worked at HW. He may box at super HW, but in MMA they wear 4 oz gloves. LHW is solid. I think Page may be overhyped after his win, but he is very good. Forrest still has good potential, it is time for another legit fight tho so he can prove he is back. MW is ruined by Horn, he is not top 10 and has no potential. Filho is a stud tho, maybe the best 185er, shame he is fighting WEC rather than right to UFC. Idk how u plan on having Rich at WW, he is 185er and a big one at that, this wont work. Shonie Carter just sucks, sorry. Manny is an awful pick, especially with the depth at LW. Kid is nasty tho, love him, one of my favs. This team has decent talent, but some guys are in the wrong weight class, not a huge fan of this squad.

MW Matt Linland
MW Frank Shamrock
WW BJ Penn
WW Jake Shields
LW Takanori Gomi
LW Gilbert Melendez
HW are good. Nog is #2 HW, Arlovski is still dangerous, I would like see him fight Cro Cop. I like the LHW. Arona is great, just got caught by Soko. He is a top 5 talent. Rashad has great potential imo and will show it vs Tito (I think). I hate watching Matt Lindland fight, but he is awesome, hard to argue with him being ranked #1. Shamrock is great, love him. But, I donít think he should have been drafted. Beating Baroni should not get u top 10. WW is Ok. I like BJ a lot better at LW (because he is forced to be in shape lol), but he is still the most skilled guy out there. Shields is solid, but nothing great, top 10 tho. LW is sick, u have #1 and #2 imo. Maybe the best team so far.

HW Randy Couture
HW Aleksander Emelianenko
LHW Kazuhiro Nakamura
LHW Ryoto Machida
MW Dan Henderson
MW Kazuo Misaki
WW Matt Hughes
WW Akira Kikuchi
LW Sean Sherk
LW Tatsuya Kawajiri

Randy and Aleks are a solid tandem. Randy top 5 and Aleks top 10. Not great at LHW. I think Machida can be awesome, but is not top 10 yet, and Kaz Nak is just OK, may sneak in at #10. Hendo is sick, awesome fighter, top 5-10 p4p. Not a huge Misaki fan, he gets a big win and then goes and gets worked by Trigg. Hughes is very, very good. I like Kikuchi, but donít see him as top 10 guy. He beats bad opposition but fold when he fights the big guns. Aoki beat him twice and he lost to Shields (although he did beat shields once). Like your LW a lot actually. Sherk is one of the most talented LW out there imo, love him. Love Kawajiri too, his fight with Melendez was sick. This team is solid, but not up there with CCB or fenkiz.

HW Brock Lesnar
HW Fabricio Werdum
LHW Chuck Lidell
LHW Micheal Bisping
MW Ed Herman
MW Frank Trigg
WW Karo Parisyan
WW Diego Sanchez
LW Nate Diaz
LW Din Thomas

Ugh, HW sucks. Lesnar is an awful pick. I like Werdum a lot, but he is probably not top 10 anymore. LHW is better. I think Liddell is underappreciated among hardcore MMA guys, he is awesome. Bisbing has good potential, I donít mind that pick. Ed Herman is a poor selection, Trigg maybe sneaks into the top 10, although not on my list. WW is finally a solid weight class. Every MMA nut loves Karo, he is sick. Sanchez still has good potential, I think he had an off night against Koscheck (not saying he is better than Kos, but he is better than what he showed). LW is very bad. Neither Nate or Din should have been drafted imo. Donít care for this team, sorry.

So, the ranksÖÖ..

6. Man of Steel
5. LT Giants- I like the talent a lot, but the weight classes are so off
4. GBPackers
3. Fenkiz- it was razor thin between you and the 2 others.
2. All about the U- came sooooo close to beating CCB, his LW is what pushed him over the edge (he has top 2 in the world imo)
1. CCB- reigns supreme




WINNER: CCB

*** I will be happy to answer any questions
