Melbourne, Australia is the place to be for the UFC’s 101st installment of their Fight Night series of events. The card offers a good variety of talented prospects and a well-matched, upper level contender’s bout serving as the main event. Derek Brunson vs. Robert Whittaker is the kind of fight a promotion can get guaranteed fireworks from, and the outcome could very well determine who will be on the short list for title contention.
Bloody Elbow content partner, Thomas J. Toehold, Esquire is back with another video with his predictions for five fighters that are likely to find wins in the land down under tonight. Kick back with a Vegemite sandwich, an icy cold beer and get some tips from the master blaster himself.
Here’s a quote to get you started:
“We’ve got a bit of a dark horse with Kyle Noke. He has the reach advantage in this bout and he has five stoppages in his six UFC wins. He's actually tied for most tonight. He does a very good job of not getting hit and he lands 3.54 significant strikes per minute. He's got good takedown defense and he'll likely keep this fight standing. In my opinion, Noke wins big in his own back yard.”
