We've heard a lot of people making predictions for the Strikeforce Heavyweight Grand Prix, but how about UFC president Dana White? Who does he see as the favorite? According to Dave Meltzer, Dana is going with a fighter he's not that fond of.
"For the record, Dana White is predicting Barnett, who he hates, to run the table. He believes Werdum will catch Overeem on the ground, but Barnett, who has never been submitted, will be strong enough to avoid Werdum’s strength."
Dana and Josh have been trading verbal jabs for quite sometime, as White has been very critical of Josh's problems with the athletic commission, even going as far as to say that Barnett put Affliction MMA out of business. I guess we'll see how Dana's prediction holds up.
