Sportstacular: UFC 94 and Superbowl XLIII

It's a big weekend for sports fans as two epic battles are about to unfold. Let's go down to Jim, standing cage-side, for more information. Jim?

UFC 94:
That's right, Johnny, the fans are showing up by the thousands this weekend as everyone prepares for UFC 94: St. Pierre vs Penn 2. Let's go ahead and take a look at that fight card-

St Pierre vs. BJ Penn
Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva
Stephan Bonnar vs. Jon Jones
Karo Parisyan vs. Hyun Kim
Nate Diaz vs. Clay Guida (possibly a caveman)
Jon Fitch vs. Akihiro Gono
Manny Gamburyan vs. Thiago Tavares
Chris Wilson vs. John Howard
Jake O'Brien vs. Christian Wellish
Matt Arroya vs. Dan Cramer

While fans are sure to be excited to see the likes of Machida, Silva, Parisyan and more, there's no doubt the real show this weekend is going to be St. Pierre/Penn. Given these guys' past, I can't imagine either being able to pull off a submission. St. Pierre and Penn both claim to be in the best shape of their life and both have been hard at work on their standup game, so we might be in for a real slugfest come Saturday night. Call me crazy, but I think Pierre is going to do it again. We're calling it a knockout in the third round. After one round of sizing each other up and another of teeing off, St. Pierre is going to drop Penn with a looping right, mount and pummel until the ref finally pulls him off.

For more on this weekend's sports entertainment, we head on over to Florida where Samantha is gearing up for Superbowl Lotsofletters. Samantha?

Superbowl XLIII:
(Obligatory fans yelling in the background as Samantha gives a good-natured, though somewhat sad, laugh.)

Hi guys! I'm here in Tampa Bay where, this Sunday, the Phoenix Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers will be taking the field to...Hold on a second. Jimmy....Jimmy! Is that right? Are you sure? Okay...

So, yeah, I guess the Cardinals made it to the Superbowl. Wow! (Devil walks past wearing a Carhart jacket). If ever there was a Cinderella story, other than the actual story of Cinderella, that is, this would be it. While my head says the Steelers, my heart is screaming Go Cards!

Now back to the studio for the weather.
