5 Predictions for UFC on Versus 2

Joseph SungaContributor IJuly 30, 2010

1. Jon Jones takes a beating, but pulls off submission
Jon “Bones” Jones will finally be taken down and be on the receiving end of some ground and pound. Going against Vladimir Matyushenko, former IFL Light Heavyweight Champion, he will underestimate Vladimir’s shot. Scrambling on the ground, Jon Jones will go for multiple submissions and will end up finishing the fight with a beautiful triangle choke. He’ll be on his way to becoming the future Light Heavyweight Champion in the UFC.

2. Mark Munoz becomes a Top Middleweight Contender
Wrestler against wrestler. Mark Munoz will show why American wrestling trumps all. They will both want to take it to the ground, but the Filipino Wrecking Machine will be successful and put on a clinic on the ground. It will be a devastating exhibition of ground and pound with Yushin Okami taking a beating he never saw coming. He’ll be up to face the upper echelon of Middleweights next.

3. Takanori Gomi wins his 1st UFC fight via knockout
This will be the Fight of the Night with the majority of the fight standing. Tyson Griffin will successfully chop at Takanori Gomi’s legs, but that’ll make him a bit too confident in the later rounds. Struggling on one leg, Gomi starts swinging for the fences while being on defense. Tyson runs in trying to finish Gomi, and Gomi launches a fireball of a left-hook and catches Tyson on the chin — landing him Knockout of the Night.  

4. This will be Jacob Volkmann’s last match in the UFC
Why is Jacob Volkmann still in the UFC? He’s a wrestler with no striking skills. He’s be peppered all night by Paul Kelly and will lose via TKO. Not much else to say here. 

5. Brian Stann realizes he should have started at 185lbs in the UFC
Like Mark Munoz, Brian Stann will realize he should have went to the Middleweight Division when he came over from WEC. The UFC Light Heavyweight Division is so stacked, he didn’t have a chance. Now, he can take his larger frame to the smaller division and impose his will on his opponent, which Mike Massenzio will feel that night.
