As we head into what I would easily call the peak of fight season we are presented with what looks to be a pretty great card. While they haven’t done a great job hyping this fight that doesn’t mean it isn’t going to be insane. We have a lot of the smaller fighters on this card and they always deliver a great performance. Also on the card is a Heavy Weight bout that should be very explosive. This is a great card and best of all IT IS COMPLETELY FREE – airing on Versus tomorrow evening (check your local listings for exact time details).
So I thought it would be fun to bring all of you my first UFC event fight predictions. I will admit that I do not recognize all the names so forgive me for that. Because of that I am going to just stick with the main card this go around. Because I am still just a little bit more than a casual fan I am still learning all I can about this sport so I can deliver you the best info possible.
Welterweight bout: Anthony Johnson vs. Charlie Brenneman
My Pick: Anthony Johnson via TKO round 2
If Johnson can make weight he should have no trouble going through Brennenman. Then again Brenneman could have another upset up his sleeve.
Heavyweight bout: Pat Barry vs. Stefan Struve
My Pick: Pat Barry via KO round 2
This all depends on Barry closing the distance between him and Struve. We have seen in the past that Struve doesn’t always use his reach to his advantage. He is going to need to utilize that to have any chance in this match against the fast and heavy hands of Barry. I think he maintains the distance for a short amount of time then becomes overwhelmed by Barry in the second and suffers yet another KO loss.
Bantamweight Championship: Dominick Cruz vs. Demetrious Johnson
MY Pick: Dominick Cruz via unanimous decision
I see this being a face paced fun fight to watch. UD or not you will have fun watching these two go at it. I think it will be another close Decision for Dominick Cruz in the end though.
There you have it; a fun filled FREE night of fights that I am sure will deliver. I will be posting results and tweeting live so keep a look out here at AllSportsTalk for live up to the minute results. What are some of your picks? I’d love to hear them.
