UFC 96 Predictions By The Bulldozer
UFC 96 is only one week away. The main card has three undefeated fighters and is headlined by a potential championship contender in Quinton "Rampage" Jackson. Rampage will take on Keith "The Dean of Mean" Jardine, whose resume includes the knockouts of former champions Chuck Liddell and Forest Griffin.
Here are the Bulldozer's predictions for the main card:
Gray Maynard vs. Jim Miller—These two fighters boast a combined 20-1-1 record and I don't expect either fighter to be taken out by submission or knockout. I expect Maynard to avoid getting taken down by Miller in what should be a very defensive fight.
Result: Maynard by unanimous decision
Matt Hamill vs. Mark Munoz—Matt Hamill will welcome undefeated Mark Munoz to the UFC. Munoz is 5-0 and his two previous fights ended in the first round as a fighter in WEC. Matt Hamill is coming off a win against Reese Andy after getting KO'ed by Rich Franklin. Both men are world class wrestlers, so this should be a very interesting matchup.
Result: Hamill by second round KO
Pete Sell vs. Matt Brown—I'm very surprised this fight is on the main card. Regardless, it should be a fairly entertaining fight. Coming off of a win against Josh Burkman, Sell may still be fighting for his job after losing four prior fights in a row. Matt Brown comes in 2-1 in the octagon. I expect Brown to push this fight early with his aggressive attitude and catch Sell early. This could be Sell's last UFC fight.
Result: Brown by first round submission
Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Shane Carwin—This is my prediction for fight of the night. I expect Carwin to come hard at Gonzaga early, but Gonzaga is a smart fighter and will weather the storm. First round would go to Carwin, but Gonzaga will take the fight into the second round and after picking up some momentum later in the first. ustice will be served mid-second round as Carwin makes his second-round debut (Carwin has won each of his 10 fights early in the first round).
Result: Carwin by second round KO
Quinton Jackson vs. Keith Jardine—Good things often come to those who wait. As we've grown accustomed to seeing with Jardine, either he will get knocked out early or he often wins if he lasts more than a couple of minutes. This time around, impatience wins and we will see an Evans vs. Jackson title fight at UFC 100.
Result: Jackson by first round KO
