UFC 103: Halloween Havoc
October 31, 2009
Las Vegas, NV — MGM Grand
Paul Taylor vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida
This would be a good fight, Taylor is always exciting. Yoshida would need this fight to get back into his old form, and avoiding being "Koscheck-ed". Both men have fights before at 98 and 99, but could take this fight win or lose.
Chris Lytle vs. Dan Cramer
Lytle always puts on a great show, and Cramer has been good since stint in The Ultimate Fighter. This would be a great fight to gage where each fighter is in terms of their future in the UFC. Both men are recognized names, and will be sure to get the fans amped up.
Jake Rosholt vs. Ed Herman
No real reason behind this one, but I think it'd be an awesome fight. Does that count for much?
Dave Kaplan vs. Jeremy Stephens
I think Kaplan will win his fight with Roop, and this fight will actually test Kaplan. Stephens is a win away from main card status, this could be his moment. Both fighters would put up a good fight.
James Irvin vs. Alessio Sakara
Both guys are good strikers, and have KO power. This could be a the Fight of the Night winner, maybe even Knockout of the Night honors. Any one is fine by me.
Dustin Hazelett vs. Brock Larson
McLovin' is gaining popularity, and Brock Larson is a well-known WEC top welterweight contender. This is a huge match for both men. I see this as a two-round war, with someone winning by submission.
Ryan Bader vs. Jason Brilz
Bader would be coming off of a win at UFN 18, and Brilz would be coming off a win over Tim Boetsch. Both men would need this win to prove they belong in the always tough light heavyweight division.
Thales Leites vs. Dan Miller
Both are top middleweight contenders, and both are looking for shots at title gold. A win here for both men would mean some serious climbing up the ladder. Miller and Leites is a great match-up.
Diego Sanchez vs. Sean Sherk
This would be for the No.1 contender for the 155 pound crown. It's also a great fight in general. Both men deserve a shot, and both are hungry. This would defiantly be a classic fight that a lot of people want to see.
Rich Franklin vs. Chuck Liddell
A great fight no matter what happens in their next fights. Franklin is making the permanent move to 205, and Liddell is trying his hardest to keep fighting. Both men will be going for broke, and it should be an exciting fight.
