HOLY SHIT!!!! It is here UFC 143 strap on your mother fucking seatbelts.
Renan Barao vs. Scotty Jorgensen
I personally met Barao at the airport the day after his fight in Birmingham and you would never think that not only is this guy a bad ass but he has the longest unbeaten streak in the UFC. If you haven't seen his fight with Brad Pickett (I was there live :D) it was a picture perfect performance against a guy who beat former #1 contender Demetrious Johnson. Jorgensen however stylistically is a very tough opponent for Barao because Barao's weakest aspect is his wrestling. I think Barao will finish him. Jorgensen has one way to beat him and that is shoot and shoot early I expect Barao to know this and will be smart enough to not throw silly flying knees against a high level wrestler.
Josh Koscheck vs Mike Pierce
Every time Pierce has faced a top opponent he has failed to come out victorious. However remember UFC 141 when Johnny Hendrix shocked the world against Jon Fitch (a training partner and friend of Koscheck) I can see that happening tonight. Pierce has a lot of power and has the wrestling to keep the fight standing. I am going for Koscheck to win a close decision but who knows in this crazy sport.
Roy Nelson vs. Fabricio Werdum
Werdum shocked everyone including Alistair Overeem last June by showing decent stand up. I still think Roy's is better though and he stood 3 rounds with JDS so I don't see him getting knocked out. I think Roy will be able to keep this fight standing and win a boring fight.
UFC Interim Welterweight Championship bout: Nick Diaz vs "The Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit
This fight reminds me of Nate Diaz vs. Donald Cerrone because not only because obviously Nate and Nick are brothers and because Cerrone and Condit are training partners but also because this is the same style match up. Diaz being the king of cardio in MMA and with an excellent unique boxing style. While Condit is the diversified striker with great Kicks, Knees and Elbows similar to Cerrone. I see this fight going the same way as the other fight did but a lot closer. I could go on about this fight for paragraphs and paragraphs but I will not bore you, Diaz by Decision
