UFC 126 is coming up. That means it’s time to give away some free MMA instructional stuff.

I’m very excited about the title match between Vitor Belfort & Anderson Silva. I really hope Belfort comes out of that fight as the new UFC middleweight champion of the world.  It comes down to the fact that I just don’t enjoy watching Silva fight as much anymore.

Anyway make your picks below (and please keep them in the same list order to make my job of calculating the winner much easier) and if you choose the most correct winners you win!

To make things more fun let’s do something special.

If Silva retains his belt, the pick’em winner will get any one of my MMA instructional workshops ($30 Value) and if Vitor Belfort is victorious then the pick’em winner will receive my complete MMA QuickStart MMA Training Program ($97 value).

Make your picks as comments on this post. Good luck!

Here’s a video with my thoughts on the main card fights:

and here’s the full fight card for you to make your picks from:

Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort
Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin
Ryan Bader vs. Jon Jones
Jake Ellenberger vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha
Miguel Torres vs. Antonio Banuelos
Donald Cerrone vs. Paul Kelly
Chad Mendes vs. Michihiro Omigawa
Gabe Ruediger vs. Paul Taylor
Demetrious Johnson vs. Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto
Mike Pierce vs. Kenny Robertson
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Ricardo Romero

I’m definitely looking forward to UFC 117 although I think these two headliner fights could play out in one of two different ways: Action packed from start to finish or uneventful and boring depending on how the fighters approach it.

I’m hoping that Chael Sonnen wins the belt that night by finishing Anderson Silva. What I definitely don’t want to see is Silva dancing around the cage for twenty minutes waving his arms in the air and doing his shake and bake stuff pretending to want to attack. Hopefully for the fans, he’ll be out in good form and fight hard for the entire fight.

With the Fitch/Alves, ideally we’ll see some good ground work by Fitch and some slick striking by Alves throughout in a match that ends by either KO or submission. Both guys are tough competitors and will without a doubt be ready to fight hard all three rounds.

I’m picking Sonnen and Fitch to win. Who you going with?

UFC 104 Predictions

Posted by: | Comments (6)

ufc_104_posterLyoto Machida vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua

I’m excited about this bout mainly because I like watching Machida fight. He seems to be gaining more confidence with every fight and I believe that will give him an edge over his opponent, tough Brazilian fighter Mauricio Rua. Hopefully Lyoto pulls off a footsweep or some other rarely used technique during the fight to make things extra exciting. When all is said and done I see Machida having his hand raised high in victory.

Inferno’s pick – Lyoto Machida (2nd round TKO)

Cain Velasquez vs. Ben Rothwell

This is a tough fight to pick. Many people believe that Velasquez is one of the biggest threats to UFC champ Brock Lesnar but in order to get closer to that opportunity he has to beat veteran fighter and IFL standout Ben Rothwell on Saturday night. This will be no easy task as Rothwell has gone 14-1 in his last fifteen fights and has faced some tough opponent. Going with my gut feeling, I’m picking Rothwell to win this fight by decision.

Inferno’s pick – Ben Rothwell (Decision)

Josh Neer vs. Gleison Tibau

This fight has the potential to be a great battle, both standing and on the ground. Neer has the edge in experience but Tibau comes into the cage as a pretty big lightweight. I see Josh Neer winning this fight in the final round by TKO.

Inferno’s pick – Josh Neer (3rd round TKO)

Joe Stevenson vs. Spencer Fisher

Oh yeah! I pick this one for fight of the night. Two lightweights with ultra aggressive styles pitted against one another. What more could you ask for? Each of them possesses a wealth of experience and strong skill sets. Stevenson may have an edge on the mat while Fisher has the stronger striking technique but it’s a guarantee that this match will be exciting wherever it goes. Who will pull out the win? I say Fisher. How will he do it? It will be by decision.

Inferno’s Pick – Spencer Fisher (decision)

Anthony Johnson vs. Yoshiyuki Yoshida

Although Yoshida has more wins than his opponent, I do not believe it will play much of a factor in this bout. Johnson is a tall, strong welterweight fighter that many believe will someday become a champion. I’m very certain that Yoshida will look to take this fight to the ground. I’m also certain that Johnson will know this and proceed to stop any such attempts made by his Japanese opponent. Once the takedown is stopped I don’t think the fight will last very much longer as I see Johnson pulling out the victory sometime during the 2nd round.

Inferno’s Pick – Anthony Johnson (2nd round TKO)
