I for one am fairly stoked for UFC 82. Silva and Hendo will make my night by far, but I'm also looking forward to seeing Diego back in again.
Having Fitch fight a pocket can makes no sense unless it ends up being a bookmark for him to fight the winner of GSP and Serra.
I see absolutely no point in Kongo and Herring. Cheick is coming off a decent-ish win over Mirko and Herring has done nothing but lose in the UFC. I have no idea why this is even happening.
WAR TANNER!!!!!! I'm extremely stoked to see Evan back, but running headfirst into someone like Okami will be rough to say the least. This fight makes my #2, just slightly behind Silva and Hendo.
Arlovski will rape O'Brien, seeing as how Jake can only attempt lay and pray for the most part in the UFC (see Herring, which was a painfully boring fight to watch). Andre will serve him a steaming place of KTFO early in the first, unless another crappy upset occurs. In the case of such....he'll do it in the second. Jake has a history of KO's and TKO's, but he seems hesitant to let loose nowadays; not that he will be able to survive with Andre at all where standup is concerned.
Watch for Gurgel to be focused on a finish after his recent loss to Alvin Robinson, Koscheck to be cocky/moronic as ever (although Dustin is a bad matchup for him; maybe I'll be plesantly surprised), and Cummo to dominate again.
I'm honestly looking forward to every fight (even Kongo/Herring, as I'm basically mystified to see what else could happen with this seemingly pointless fight) on the card, which hasn't happened in awhile.
