Well guys this promises to be a firework filled card so let's see who you lot reckon will win their respective fights.

GSP v Dan 'the outlaw' Hardy
I gotta go with GSP. Even though I like Hardy and he is a lot more versatile than people give him credit for, I only has a puncher's chance. I just think that if it goes to the ground (and I'm sure that GSP will be looking to take it there) Hardy is doomed. It's hard to KO someone off your back.

Mir v Carwin
Wow - tough one. I'd like to see Mir take it simply because I want him to fight that square headed, blonde, brainless hulk, Lesnar again. But Carwin has huge KO power and has finished all of his 11 fights in the first round by knockout.

Jon Fitch v Thiago 'Pitbull' Alves
Gonna go with Alves on this one, he's looking to re-establish himself after GSP whooped his ass and he's hella tough.

Diaz v Markham
Don't really care but would like to see Diaz get his punk ass knocked out. Plus he's fighting at a heavier weight than usual so he might have his hands full with the more naturally large fighters.

i agree with yamahuh, except i think carwin is going to land a lucky/good knockout on mir. carwin is a monster. would love to see him vs lesnar, even though mir vs lesnar would be a huge grudge match.

gsp. all the way.

alves v fitch- i like jon fitch, but thiago needs a win and i think he is going to come out hard.

should be a good card, thats for sure.

Just saw that too.
Saunders was very impressive in the last fightIi saw him in.
Too bad about Alves though.

NEWARK, N.J. Top UFC welterweight Thiago Alves (16-6) has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled matchup with Jon Fitch Saturday at UFC 111 after failing his medical tests with the New Jersey State Athletic Control Board.

The fight originally was scheduled to air on the pay-per-view portion of the event.

The handed down a medical suspension on Alves when doctors saw irregularities in two MRIs and one CAT scan the fighter had sent from his home in Florida.

Details on what exactly was showing up on the tests are unclear, although Alves says he isn't worried about his general health.

"They didn't have enough time to look into it and they don't want to take the risk so they decided to pull out the fight," Alves said. "I don't have the results to look at so I'm waiting to get the scan back and take it to a specialist.

"It could be something I was born with. I'm not upset about my health because I know I'm fine. I'm just upset that I can't fight."

It is expected that Ben Saunders will take on Fitch as Alves's replacement, although Saunders already was scheduled to fight Jake Ellenberger on the UFC 111 card.

Alves was visibly disappointed by the news Thursday, stating he could only try to remain positive as the situation was totally out of his hands.

He wasn't the only fighter to come across obstacles with the New Jersey commission and said that he already knew the board was unusual when it came to medicals.

"They do things here that no other commission does," Alves said. "Last time I fought Chris Lytle here (in 2007) they had me do blood tests even though I had already done them in Florida. They are real particular here.

"The talked to the UFC guys and they say, 'Keep in shape. We'll do this fight when you're clear.'"

Alves dropped a lopsided unanimous decision to welterweight Georges St. Pierre in his last fight at UFC 100 in July.

Educated picks:

MAIN CARD

Welterweight championship

Georges "Rush" St. Pierre (19-2) vs. Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy (23-6)

•Story line: Brash, colorful, trash-talking British brawler challenges soft-spoken Canadian titleholder who happens to be one of the world's best pound-for-pound fighters.

•Case for St. Pierre: Outstruck, outwrestled and outgrappled every challenger over the last 2 years. Wrestling is practically irresistible; statistics compiled by MMA analysis site FightMetric indicate he has had successful takedowns in every fight in which he attempted them. Why should this one be any different?

•Case for Hardy: Good counterpuncher. Power in both hands. Getting some tips from Matt Serra, the last man to beat St. Pierre.

•Pick: St. Pierre. Hardy is a formidable fighter, but St. Pierre towers over the 170-pound division at the moment. Knowing that Serra is in Hardy's corner might actually boost the titleholder's confidence. St. Pierre blew away Serra the last time they fought. And St. Pierre has been training lately with Serra's jiu-jitsu mentor, Renzo Gracie.

Interim heavyweight championship

Frank Mir (13-4) vs. Shane Carwin (11-0)

•Story line: Saturday's winner gets the showdown he truly wants. Mir has been raging against Brock Lesnar since the heavyweight titlist crushed him in July and rubbed it in with insults immediately afterward. Carwin later saw his bout with Lesnar postponed and then canceled because of the champion's lengthy illness.

•Case for Mir: Better jiu-jitsu, more refined boxing, intelligent game planner. Adding almost 20 pounds of muscle over the last six months should help against bigger heavyweights.

•Case for Carwin: No matter how much bulk Mir puts on, Carwin will have more as long as he maintains his current fitness. Massive power, superior wrestling, smart and calm fighter.

•Pick: Carwin, but not by much. He has the power and wrestling ability to replicate the game plan that Lesnar used to bludgeon Mir on the ground, and a maturity that keeps him calm in bad situations. But Carwin isn't as explosive as Lesnar, and Mir might be able to keep Carwin off balance with clever footwork, counterstrikes and well-placed uppercuts and knees when the bigger man tries to close the distance for the takedown.

Welterweight

Jon Fitch (24-3-1) vs. Ben Saunders (8-1-2)

•Story line: This was supposed to be a matchup of the top two welterweights after St. Pierre, not to mention two of the champion's last three victims. But Thiago Alves was pulled from the card after a pre-fight medical exam. Saunders, who was supposed to face Jake Ellenberger, moved up for a shot at the veteran contender.

•Case for Fitch: Superior wrestler with excellent conditioning. Once he gets atop opponents on the mat, they rarely escape. Can take punishment. Has beaten most every welterweight contender. St. Pierre is the only man to beat him in a UFC fight.

•Case for Saunders: Knockout power and decent grappling skills. Has momentum from his last fight, a first-round knockout against Marcus Davis, who had taken Hardy to a split decision in June.

•Pick: Fitch. Saunders will be praised for stepping in at the last minute, but Fitch has the edge in experience and ground skills.

PRELIMINARY CARD

Welterweight

Nate Diaz (11-5) vs. Rory Markham (16-5)

•Story line: After winning his first five UFC fights, Diaz lost three of four and hopes to revive his career by moving up to the 170-pound division. Markham needs a revival of his own; he hasn't fought since suffering a brutal knockout 13 months ago by Hardy.

•Case for Diaz: Fights like a lightweight clone of older sibling Nick: Constant patter of light punches racks up points and wears down opponents. Active and creative with jiu-jitsu.

•Case for Markham: Devastating striker with sound overall game.

•Pick: Diaz. Has never been knocked out in a professional fight. Long reach and high-volume punching confounds most opponents on the feet. His biggest weakness, wrestling defense, likely won't be a concern because of Markham's penchant for head hunting.

Agreed - Lesnar's not a martial artist he's just a really big dude who's VERY good at wrestling (and I don't mean WWE) I was pretty happy to hear Carwin agree that the interim belt was a sham and state 'that's why I'm coming after you"

I hope Carwin knocks Lesnar TF out.

Shame to see Mir lose another one - I would've really liked to see him break Lesnar's arm /ankle / fibula / femur / tibia / neck .... take your pick...

Carwin really dropped some serious bombs at Mir. Lesnar has to be pretty cautious to get to Carwins fists and I sure hope Carwin knocks him out.

Some say GSP is "boring" etc but man did he show that punk Hardy that it takes more than self confidence to win against GSP. Everyone, even I, knew GSP would shoot but still Hardy had nothing to counter with. He was humble in defeat though.

I gotta admit that watching a mungicake pound the piss out of a loudmouth limey was fairly satisfying.

GSP is complete, the best take downs in the business and incredibly good at neutralising an opponents strengths and exploiting his weaknesses. He knew he had to avoid getting hit by Hardy, Hardy knew what GSP's game plan was gonna be and he still couldn't stop it from happening. His last 3 fights have been clinics. BloJob Penn was completely outclassed, so was Alvez who I thought was the most dangerous opponent he's fought lately and now Hardy.

My hats off to Hardy though, he played the game up until the fight, got caught in a couple of very nasty armbars but refused to tap and was classy in defeat.

I like the dude.

Carwin and Mir, well I don't know what to say about that one, Carwin looks to be almost unstoppable with his KO power - I mean c'mon - he's knocking TF out of guys weighing 265 lbs!!
Really feel for Mir though - seems like he's had a couple of really bad, confidence destroying losses lately, I hope he doesn't quit, I'd love to see him fight Lesnar again - even if it's in the parking lot...

At the moment that is probably the only place he will get a chance to fight the big blockhead Lesnar.
