BJ Penn vs Nick Diaz
BJ Penn is going to take advantage of Mr.Diaz's porous defense and land straight counters and over hand punches, while mixing in take downs leading to an eventual TKO victory.
Matt Mitrione vs Chieck Kongo
Matt Mitrione is just way more athletic then Kongo and is going use superior speed, and foot work to beat up a very durable Kongo with leg kicks and straight punches while circling off and cutting angles until he finishes him off late in the second.
Roy Nelson vs Mirko CroCop
Big Country is going to take advantage of Mirko's deteriorating footwork and put him against the fence and wear him out before eventually catching him with a big over hand right.
Scotty Jorgenson vs Jeff Curran
Jorgenson is the better wrestler and is quite a bit faster, he uses his wrestling in reverse to keep it standing and works over the very technical but comparably un-athletic big frog on rout to a decision
Hatsu Hioki vs George RoopHioki is very technical on the feet, he'll use crisp striking to set up some kind of trip from the clinch where he'll put away Roop with his A-class submission game.
Donald Cerrone vs Dennis Siver
Cerrone will use his length and speed on the feet to bust up Siver eventually leading Siver to attempt a desperate takedown where he'll find himself quickly caught in a triangle choke.
I'll be back with video predictions for UFC 138, enjoy the fights!
