UFC 102 Punch Drunk Predictions

E. Spencer KyteSenior Analyst IAugust 29, 2009

Saturday has finally arrived, and with it comes UFC 102 from the Rose Garden Arena in Portland, Oregon.

While originally not sold on this fight card, a week full of previews and pondering has left me more excited for this card than any in recent memory, save for UFC 100. All five fights on the telecast have something to be offered, and there are more than a couple preliminary card bouts that look intriguing.

The fight I'm most interested in? Tim Hague versus Todd Duffee; not because I'm Canadian like Hague, but because I interviewed him earlier in the week and fighters I interview prior to fights are currently 0-1.

Time to see if the curse continues...
