Ready for UFC 96?
UFC 96 is Saturday night and while I’ve already expressed my opinion on how things are going to play out (Quinton Jackson over Keith Jardine by second-round knockout), I want to know what you think. Are you buying this show or going the sports bar route? Anyone giving Jardine a chance? He’s a stronger kicker so he could follow Forest Griffin’s gameplan to victory, but his chin is also suspect and Jackson should be able to capitalize on that. Is there any fight on the undercard that anyone is looking forward to?
Here are a few quick reads to get you ready for UFC 96:
USA Today talks about who gets the next title shot against Rashad Evans.
The very talented Sam Caplan has a piece on the key UFC 96 story lines.
I’m also a big fan of the CBS head-to-head breakdown of events, but I miss Gregg Doyel in this feature.
USA Today also has a neat piece on UFC refs.
