UFC 103

The Ultimate Fighting Championship is marching thru Dallas, Texas this weekend as UFC 103 is set to go. What makes this pay per view unique is that a portion of under card fights will be shown live on Spike TV. Another nugget of goodness, the Spike TV program will also be commercial free. Pretty sweet. Thanks UFC and Spike. The effects of the Affliction closure are starting to be seen and some of their former fighters are tickling up to the UFC show. As I'm doing some last minute research, which means looking at the weigh-in pictures, there are a lot of fighters I've never heard of. Should make for some interesting picks. Hermes Franca always makes me chuckle with his purple or other oddly colored hair. When did Emerson add that tattoo on his head? Shit that had to hurt. And Kurt Angle makes his, wait, that Frankie Trigg. Awesome, Twinkle Toes is back. It's too bad Swick is out of his bout with Kampmann. The was sure to be fireworks. The scuttlebutt is saying that three guys had issues making weight, including Vitor Belfort. Well anyway, I'm sure the loyal readers are ready for some picks. Here they are and enjoy the fights....
