saturday night december 27th 2008 in las vegas is ufc 92: the ultimate 2008. the main event on the card is forrest griffin vs rashad evans, though the fight im looking forward to seeing is quinton ‘rampage’ jackson (28-7) vs wanderlei ‘the axe murderer’ silva (32-8-1). these two men have fought each other twice in pride, a mma league based in japan. in both fights silva was easily victorious ending both fights with vicious knees to the face, in the second fight silva knocked jackson out of the ring. the last time the two faced each other was 2004, that was a long time ago. some would argue that back then was when silva was in his prime, and is now towards the end of an illustrious career. both men have expressed disliking the other man and both have guaranteed victory. i personally want rampage to win, seeing as he is probably my favorite mma fighter. do i feel like he will win? yes, but really, there is no telling…. he lost his last fight (a title defense) to forrest griffin by a controversial decision 3 rounds to 2. after the loss he went crazy and led the police on a high speed car chase in orange county california. a short while after his arrest rampage claimed to be under a lot of pressure and was very stressed at the time. he maintains that he is in great shape and ready to take back his place at the top of the light heavy weight division of the ufc, the most competitive division in the mma world. in order to retake his throne he must first get past wanderlei silva. tune in saturday night on ppv to see what happens.
my predictions for the 2 main fights are rashad evans and rampage jackson
