Just for the record...

Randy Couture picked Forrest Griffin to win every round against Rua. So, assuming Griffin wins, and I imagine he will (because that would be an upset, and unexpected results are the new expected results in MMA), it follows that no one should be surprised tomorrow night.

Unless Rua wins.


  • Hmmm...

    Randy picking Forrest to win every round is a bit of a shocker. I -think- Forrest trains in Randy's camp, doesn't he?

    He has waaaay more inside information than we do, so maybe there are some injuries and/or progression we don't know about.

  • Yeah, Forrest trains with Randy, so perhaps we take what Randy says with a bit of salt, at least on this one. And anyway, to be perfectly honest, there's no reason why MMA should be more predictable, even for someone who is very good at it, than it is for people who closely follow the sport. I do not consider myself or anyone I know to be someone who *closely* follows the sport (e.g., knows about the comings and goings within each camp, sometimes breaks news, etc.), but I think there are at least a few people out there who count--columnists, etc.--most of whom, from what I gather, immensely favor Rua over Griffin.
