UFC 126 Fight Card Preview and Analysis on The Fight Fix

Host Dustin Green and I (@MMANation) take a look ahead at the UFC's next major fight event: UFC 126. We go over the three major fights and I give my analysis for each. Among many other points, I suggest:

  • Jon Jones vs. Ryan Bader will be a much closer fight than most expect.
  • Despite the injury and layoff, Forrest Griffin does have a slight advantage heading into his bout with Rich Franklin.
  • Vitor Belfort will be the first fighter of any kickboxing merit to stand with Anderson Silva. He's also very hard to finish with strikes and is physically strong for middleweight, but the current UFC champion should retain his title.

Feel free to tell me what you think I got wrong or right in the comments.
