The UFC event tonight looks like it will have a great card from top to bottom. Kudos to UFC President Dana White and his organization for providing some excitement in the sports world at what is normally a very slow time of year for sports fans in America (I’m sorry, mid season baseball isn’t exactly riveting).
Tonights fights are tough to pick too because of the competitive nature of the fighters and the style contrasts in some cases. I’m going to pick three of televised fights:
Silva vs Sonnen: I think Anderson Silva will win by KO or TKO by the third round.
Fitch vs Alves: Fitch by unanimous decision.
Dos Santos vs Nelson: I think Dos Santos wins by KO/TKO in second round.
Just for the record I am rooting for Chael Sonnen and Big Country Nelson to win, but my picks above reflect who I think will prevail and not who I want to win. That said, I do think that both Sonnen and Nelson have legitimate outside shots to win their fights. Both are very skilled and are capable of upsetting in my opinion.
