UFC this Saturday and it looks like an exciting card. We have to put up with poor commentators, lots of talking, and lots and lots of ads with these Fox TV events but hey, they’re free. For some reason there doesn’t seem to be a promo for the event on YouTube, so I posted the In Focus: Silva vs Stann show. On to the predictions.
Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann. Nothing against Silva but he’s nearing the end of his career and the last couple years haven’t been good. Finish for Stann.
Mark Hunt vs. Stefan Struve. Over a foot reach and cardio advantage for Struve. If he can keep his distance I think he’ll pick Hunt apart.
Takanori Gomi vs. Diego Sanchez. Nobody can take a beating and keep going like Sanchez (except Frankie Edgar), but he hasn’t been that great at dishing it out. Plus he’s coming off a year hiatus. Gomi wins.
Yushin Okami vs. Hector Lombard. Okami’s lay and pray isn’t going to work on Lombard. KO/TKO for Lombard.
