Prelims on FX 7:20pm/4:20 ET/PT
ON PAY PER VIEW
Tonight is filled with a few men I have problems with ... douchebaggery, muffin toppery and complete immaturity. But fights are about tenacity, skill and strength.
Diaz / Condit -- NICKY D -- CONDIT by Unanimous Decision -- after MUCH consideration and thorough investigation of my heart (which is completely breaking inside), I have picked the one I truly don't like. Everyone knows how I feel about the socially inept, douchbaggery of Nicky D, however, my ultimate plan is seeing GSP molest him in the near future. I feel Condit has a great chance of giving Nicky D a run for his money and normally I would go for the underdog, but this is Nicky D time.
Nelson / Werdum -- WERDUM -- WERDUM by Unanimous Decision -- Nelson is a heavy hitter and I completely admire him as a fighter, HOWEVER, he's going to try to stay away from Werdum's ground game. I SAY NO TO THE MUFFIN TOP. Yes, call me materialistic and judgemental, but y'all saw my Daily Bitch on the Muffin Top! Smothering an opponent with that thing, is not acceptable in my book. Blah Blah Blah, shut your pie hole on my pick and why!!!
Koscheck / Pierce -- KOSCHECK -- KOSCHECK by Split Decision -- Koscheck is a baby to me and has been since he showed his true stripes on TUF, but he brings the game and won me a few thou the last time he fought (in my mind). Pierce is a great fighter, but not yet ready for Koscheck. This will be a great fight!

Herman / Starks -- HERMAN -- HERMAN by Submission
