Would a quick finish by either guy be considered a stinker?

No offense, but thinking Diaz vs GSP was going to be a good fight was a bit optimistic. I mean, I think we all knew Georges' dark place was not all that dark.

Millers ground game has been looking FUCKING amazing in his last 2 fights
His submissions of yancy and camois.... Fuck those where beautiful

I expect a good stand up war and somebody gets caught in a transition

I will be leaving in 2 hours to head down to ac for the fight. I will be putting 500 On miller for the submission victory. the entire card is filled with bangers so I will be surprised if the majority of the fights do not end in knockouts or submissions. I don’t think Ceroni will pick up a performance bonus toniGht. There are too many hungry fighters on this card. Dana went to the wrong fight night. He will be in Ireland if he's not already there and he should be at the rEvel in Atlantic City. the UFC is due for a unsuspecting epic event and I think that will be tonight.

No. A let down yes (let JBG Eat!) but not a stinker if one puts the other away quick (Think Cain/JDS 1)

I feel the same - after Diaz/Condit a part of me died (the part that expects exciting fights based on fighters past fight history).

That being said, I don't think Cerrone will ever get talked into playing a point-fighting game by Greg Jackson, dude just knows how to scrap not fight to win on points.

I agree. But, then again, I would've said the exact same thing about Condit before the Diaz fight. First time we've ever seen Condit employee that type of strategy and honestly I think it'll be the last.

This, I don't go in with high expectations after that happened.
