Haven’t done one of these for ages. The reason being is…… well, I don’t know. I just haven’t. The next upcoming UFC will be September 25th, and will be coming live and direct from Indianapolis, Indiana. Look for PMMP to copy my picks, hoping that he can con newbies into thinking he knows what the fuck he’s talking about. Hes gay, and he knows nothing. Here’s how it’s gonna go down…….
Frank Mir vs Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic
This fight was originally scheduled to be ‘Lil Nogs’ older brother ‘Big Nog’ in a rematch with Mir, but Nogueira had to pull out due to a hip injury which needed surgery. My nan had a hip injury once, as she ‘had a fall’ outside the post office in The Highstreet. I doubt that happened here
There have been rumours that CroCop was going to have to pull out of the fight this week, due to a abrasion on his cornea, caused by an eye poke in sparring, but the rumours have since died down. He should just man the fuck up and get on with it. I hope he doesn’t, as I’m dying to see Mirko kick Frank’s fat fucking smug face off. Despite being 4-1 in his last 5 fights, the Croatian has looked a bit wanky really, and hasn’t exactly fought what you’d call ‘top tier’ heavyweight talent (Anthony Perosh, Mustapha Al Turk and Hong Man Fucking Choi anyone?)
It’s no secret that Mir will want to take this to the ground and look to impose his BJJ superiority, yet Mirko will want to keep it standing. Whoever can keep the fight where they want it will take this. I hate Mir’s guts, and I hope he dies, plus deep down I’m a huge CroCop fan

Antonio Rogerio ‘Lil Nog’ Nogueira vs. Ryan ‘Darth’ Bader
Lil Nog looked like absolute shit in his last fight, which was supposed to be a ‘gimme’ match, against Jason Brilz, in which he was handed an awful decision victory. I’m gonna give Nog a mulligan on that one, as I think he underestimated Brilz, but don’t see him making the same mistake with the up-and-comer (I own a porno with the same name) in Bader.
Since winning Ultimate Fighter Season 8, Bader has gone 4-0, and been stepping up gradually in competition. His last fight saw him knock Keith Jardine out, which lets face it, isn’t too hard. Despite having very heavy hands, he’ll have a tonne more trouble putting Nog away. He’ll need to impose his will with his wrestling, but avoid getting into a boxing match, with the far superior Nogueria.
I’m really torn on this one. I hope Nog has pulled his finger out of his batty after the Brilz fight, but Bader has improved a bunch, since his UFC debut, and I suspect we’ll see him at the best hes ever been. I’m really stuck here. Fuck it. Youth and looks over age and experience
Bader by TKO
Matt Serra vs Chris ‘Lights Out’ Lytle
This fight gets my juices flowing. Both of these guys are extremely heavy hitting Welterweights and I can see someone getting removed from consciousness in this bout.
Serra is a stumpy little bastard with a short reach, so he will want to close the distance on Lytle. He has a significant advantage in the BJJ department and will be better served taking Chris down, and roughing him up on the deck. Lytle is known for standing and banging, and his career has been built on slugfest after slugfest. Hes still capable on the ground, but is way outmatched by Serra
I know I said I can see someone getting knocked out, but what the fuck do I know?
Serra by Submission
Sean Sherk vs Evan Dunham
No interest in watching T-Rex armed Sean Sherk try and box for 3 rounds. The younger and hungrier Dunham takes this one handily. Go make a sandwich or a cup of tea when this one comes on. If your watching it in a bar somewhere, better use the time to piss in the bin, ogle a barmaids tits or pick a fight with someone significantly bigger than you
Dunham by decision
In other action, look for Mitrione, Guillard & CB Dolloway to walk away with wins.
