Just a 'lil reminder to anyone interested - Spike TV is currently running a marathon of the entire season leading up to the finale tonight at 9PM.
Here's the card for tonights finale...
Light Heavyweight Final
Stephan Bonnar vs. Forrest Griffin
Diego Sanchez vs. Kenny Florian
Ken Shamrock vs. Rich Franklin
Josh Koscheck vs. Chris Sanford
Chris Leben vs. Jason Thacker
Lodune Sincaid vs. Nate Quarry
Alex Karalexis vs. Josh Rafferty
I'd reckon Diego will give another of his beat-downs to Florian. I always reckoned during the show that Diego was a 'lil weird, but those promos he's had for the upcoming fight just prove me right. The guy just creeps me out... good fighter, though - his technical style is actually bearable (unlike Koscheck - geez, he was boring). Florian was lucky he hit that elbow in Leben brow... Leben was r0x0ring his s0x0rz and would have won easily.
Bonnar and Forrest should be a good fight - pretty similar styles and they were both the best in their weight-class, methinks (although you could argue for Southworth instead of Bonnar, I 'spose). Anyway, I'll go with Forrest on this one... I thought his wins on the show were a 'lil more impressive.
I don't know who Rich Franklin is, but from what the clips of Shamrock's fights... that d00d is a bad-ass. I was reading up on Shamrock and I guess he'd broken some vertebrae when he was in HS - doctors told him he'd never be able to compete in contact sports again and a couple months later he was lifting weights, shooting hoops, etc. with his halo. His coach said the injury actually made him feel less pain, or something. Anyway, just interesting tid-bits I thought I'd share.
So anyway, there ya go.
