So for the past few weeks, Bleacher Report MMA has been full of articles with writers making their picks and predictions for this incredibly stacked card.
But let's be honest here. How knows more about fighting—the B/R MMA writers or the people who get paid to do the butt kicking?
This afternoon, I took some time to hit up some fighters, and some other personalities within the sport, on Twitter to get their predictions on the St. Pierre vs. Shields and Aldo vs. Hominick title fights.
First, here are their thoughts on the St. Pierre vs. Shields fight:
Shane Carwin (@ShaneCarwin)—GSP
Anthony Gutierrez (@Sharkbait816)—Shields
Jason High (@KCbandit)—GSP
James Krause (@TheJamesKrause)—GSP
Phil Lanides (@fightofyourlife)—GSP via dominance
Demetrious Johnson (@MightyMouseUFC)—GSP
Erin McDougall (@iMcDoogs)—GSP
And then we have their predictions on the Aldo vs. Hominick fight:
Demetrious Johnson—I am going for both guys. I like them both :-)
Shane Carwin—If any can beat Aldo, Hominick can.
And here are some other thoughts on the fights that they included:
Jason High—I think Hominick has a better chance than Shields.
Phil Lanides—[Aldo and Hominick will be an] entertaining fight of the year candidate.
James Krause—I think both [fights] will be good tho.
So here are is the total tally's:
Georges St. Pierre—6, Jake Shields—1
Jose Aldo—5, Mark Hominick—1, Both Aldo and Hominick—1
