UFC 107 Punch Drunk Predictions

E. Spencer KyteSenior Analyst IDecember 12, 2009

The weekend is finally here and a great card of fights is before us, meaning another round of Punch Drunk Predictions are ready to go.

After a couple cards of making like "Smooth" Jimmy Apollo from The Simpsons —"If you're right 52 percent of the time, you're wrong 48 percent of the time."—UFC 107 is another one of those lineups that can give a guy trying to improve his winning percentage fits.

Every fight on the undercard is conceivably a coin flip situation—though I'm not tossing any quarters in the air this morning—while the pay-per-view portion of things can either go 100 percent according to Hoyle (or Kyte, as the case may be) or completely pear-shaped.

Either way, we're in for a great night of fights.
