UFC 143 Predictions!!!

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

Big Country by KO in the first.

Kos by KO is the second.

Diaz by UD.

I see a triangle scenario coming up with the welter weight title. Way I see it Diaz beats Condit, Condit beats GSP, GSP beats Diaz.

How does Condit face GSP if he loses???

Edited by handlas

Jorgensen - Because I don't know much about Barao even tho I hear he's good.

Kos - Because I don't see how PIerce beats him even tho I really hope he does.

Nelson - See most saying Werdum will win but I don't foresee Big Country letting Werdum submit him and I think Nelson can get a decision if it stays on the feet.

Diaz - Think he'll do his usual style. Eat Condit's best while keeping the pressure on him and drag him into the late rounds where he'll tire Condit out and win a decision.

Good night of fights; can't wait. More-so looking forward to the Japan show tho.

@handlas: TRUST ME Barao is a future champ

Posted by handlas

heh really bad picks on my part. I see some people complaiing about Condit winning. Took it easily in my view. He was backing up the whole fight but landed waaaay more shots. Anyone that disagrees should look at the fight metric when its released. Sure it will tell the story.

Wow what a performance by Condit, great performance. Diaz had no plan B, striking wise he got completely countered by a more varied striker. He didn't get stuck on the cage, great low kicks and foot work.

That low kick jab punch roundhouse to the face combo in the 4th by Condit was sick.

Cant wait for GSP vs Condit, still not sure about Condit's wrelsting but if someone is gonna land and be effective on GSP it will be Condit. Still favor GSP, that knee tap is just too good.

Diaz ..... don't be mad homie (still love the 209 though Condit is just a beast)

also Peirce got screwed, Kos can't handle getting jabbed anymore. GSP raped his eye too hard

@bennym6: He doesn't

I meant Carlos has a better chance of beating GSP than Diaz that's all. Academic now anyway I was way off with all my predictions lol

@theveej: Have to see the first round again but for the others I gave condit the 4th and 3d and I gave diaz the 2nd and 5th. The fight was close and I could see Condit winning but idk, Condit had a good gameplan but from a guy called The Natural Born Killer tonight he fought to win not kill. I could have seen Diaz beating GSP but I can't see a way Condit beats GSP.

nick diaz really quitting? he was good just he kept on trying to pin carlos against the wall to punch him.
