Fedor I think was everyone's number 1 pick, the right choice IMO

ccB
04-09-2007, 01:35 PM
I always get 2 or 3 on these which are IMO the worst picks. Im gonna probably suprise some people with this pick but I dont think no one can take this guy at 155. He will be absolutely dominate.

http://www.hero-s.com/06fightersinfo/06ha/04penn/img/ph_penn.jpg
http://www.boutreviewusa.com/OctagonSide/Images/20/bj.jpg

LW Baby J Penn

Reason: One of the best Jiu Jitsu guys in MMA hands down. Hes a force at WW so at LW hes going to own everyone. Some may still think Gomi is the man at 155 but if he cant beat Nick Diaz theres no way he can beat Penn. Penn beat GSP I dont care what anyone says about that one. He's beat Matt Hughes, he almost beat matt hughes again. Hes got sick balance which makes him almost impossible to take down. The WW's cant take him down I dont see how anyone at LW can. Hes got solid hands hes just a great all round fighter.

Good pick, I defintely considered him. Would have been my pick if he hadnt of loss to Serra.

Rob S
04-09-2007, 02:26 PM
Wow, some surprises. I love BJ, but 2 seems high. In terms of ability, he may be #2, but he has not shown the cardio to be elite. Maybe the move to 155 will help, but if u watched the ultimate fighter, it seems like he is a bit out of shape again. Granted that was filmed a while ago, but he obviously has some work to do weight wise. Hendo is a bit of a surprise too. I love Wand as much as the next guy, but he is clearly past his prime and is far from dominant anymore. Hendo should have gone high, but I think 3 is too much right now.

Nerv and I consistantly have picks 2 and 3 in all these drafts. I think ive been at 2 or 3 so much and took all the obvious fighters that the only way this will be fun is to spice it up some.

Shogun is falling off IMO. He doesnt have the killer instinct he once had. With them taking away the ability to head stomp and soccer kick I think he is a legitimate 3rd best LHW after Chuck and Hendo.

Shogun's striking does seem to have fallen off, but his wrestling and ground control is even better. The lack of head stomps and soccer kicks worry me, but Shogun gets side control so easily that his elbows should be deadly. I have no worries about Shogun. Hopefully we do get to see him in there with Hendo soon, it should be a good fight.

Anderson Silva.

I think Hendo is a bad matchup for him. I think he fairs a better chance against Liddlell, the thought of that match makes my mouth water.

I think he would take both. Perhaps it is my homerism shining through, but I really see it happening. A Lidell-Shogun match would indeed be a barn burner. I have more faith in Shoguns chin than Chuck's tho and I think thats what it may come down too.

Icon
04-09-2007, 09:12 PM
Lol rob how is Hendo a reach? He is arguably the best in two weight classes, hes even moved up to HW and beat people like Big Nog. There is no clear cut top P4P guys after Fedor, who would you have taken at 3? Shogun? I like Shogun but I havent been that impressed by him lately and he doesnt have the resume of Hendo. Chuck... well Chuck hasnt fought the competition of Hendo in my opinion and has more holes in his game. GSP just got knocked out in the 1st round by a 5'6 grappler. I think Hendo was the only pick at 3.

I also don't buy that Wand is falling off either, he lossed to Cro Cop & Dan Henderson, two of the top P4P guys in the world.

04-09-2007, 09:29 PM
