Taken from MMAFighting.com:

"Diego Sanchez (17-0) is putting his undefeated record on the line against Josh Koscheck (8-1) April 7 in the first-ever UFC event in Texas. The winner of this bout should cement his status as a top contender for Georges St. Pierre's welterweight title.


Sanchez holds an uncredited win over Koscheck from a semifinal exhibition bout on the first season of The Ultimate Fighter. Judges rendered a split decision after 3 rounds in favor of Sanchez. He went on to defeat Kenny Florian to win the TUF 1 middleweight championship.


If Georges St. Pierre recovers from his knee injury, he will give TUF 4 winner Matt Serra his title shot on this card."

To be honest, I think Diego already "cemented his status as top contender" when he beat Karo Parisyan. I also think Karo got screwed out of his title shot. Josh Koscheck hasn't fought people of the same caliber that Diego fought. In the end, I say Sanchez by un. decision.

I'm hoping for Sanchez by knock out ala Joe Riggs fight. Koscheck will try and take the fight to the ground because he doesn't want to trade punches with Sanchez.

It really depends which Matt Serra we will see that night. If he can keep up with GSP's pace and fight like he did when he fought Shonie Carter(the first time) he might have a chance. If Serra can't take GSP down, then yeah I can see this fight ending quickly.

GSP has a signed a six fight deal that can be potentially worth seven figures.

Also heres an interesting article on Kevin Randleman recently getting released out of the hospital:

Serra doesn't stand a chance. I've met the guy and he is a real great guy and a great BJJ expert, but he doesn't stand a chance. GSP is possibly a top 5 fighter in the world.

So I just started watching the Fight Night on Spike, it's the repeat. But next up is the UFC debut of Herring, I'm excited.

I've been out of the MMA loop for awhile and just saw the commercial for 67, CroCop and Jackson both at 67...I must find a way to watch.

Edit:

Well Herring just got his ass beat, very disappointing.

Rogan tore him apart also, rightfully so though, I lost count of how many times he gave his back.

Every fighter has a puncher's chance but yeah if iwas a betting man, my money would be on GSP.

I just saw the Clay Guida and Din Thomas fight. It could had went either way but the judges went with Din because they chose his stand up to Clay's ground and pound. I also saw the Dean Lister and Nate Marquadrt fight. Dean Lister really has a lot of work to do. Marquadrt put on a boxing clinic, he was just teeing off on Dean Lister.
