Couture over Nogueira/80 percent
Because it’s Couture vs. Nogueira!
N. Diaz over Guillard/75 percent
Guillard is just way out-classed. Unless he get’s a lucky barrage that ends it in the first 1:30, he will lose.
Franklin over Belfort/70 percent
Franklin is hungry—Belfort has cage rust.
Junior Dos Santos over Mirko Cro Cop/65 percent
It's just a matter of time before Dos Santos is a huge name in the UFC. Cro-Cop seems to have lost confidence.
Swick over Kampmann/65 percent
This should be awesome. Kampmann’s stock rose in everybody’s book after “decisioning” the ultra-talented Carlos Condit. Swick is just too fast and has won his last four fights—and nine of his last 10. He’s looking for a title shot and won’t want to blow it against Kampmann. I think it could be a great fight, though.
Koscheck over Trigg/75 percent
I don’t think Trigg belongs in the UFC, and I don’t feel that he has more than a "puncher’s chance" against Koscheck, whose stand-up game has progressed at an incredible rate. Koscheck now will kill the Koscheck of two years ago.
Griffin over Franca/65 percent
This is tough, and should be another great fight. If you look at their past opponents, ways of winning, and frequency of fights, I think you have to go with Griffin…at least I do!
Until next time, remember: There may not be a next time!
