UFC Fight Night: Condit Vs. Kampmann Predictions

Jason CottierAnalyst IMarch 19, 2009

First off I will start by letting everyone know that the picture I have selected is the most relevant picture I could find to this event.  There will be ring girls there with UFC plastered on their butts.

Now I am going to get on with the predictions of fighters that apparently you cannot get pictures of, unless they are at the adult movie awards.

I am only going to go over the main card, and one undercard fight that should be on the main card. 

Gleison Tibau vs. Jeremy Stephens

Gleison is a very talented mid-level fighter. He has the ability to be at the top of the game someday, but so does Stephens. Stephens last losses were to Spencer Fischer and Joe Lauzon.

I think Stephens may be a little too young and inexperienced still to overcome the ground game of Tibau.

Tibau, by submission.

Junie Browning vs. Cole Miller

Cole Miller's most recent loss came to a fighter in Jeremy Stephens that I personally feel has a style similar to Junie Browning's. Both fighters are young and aggressive.  I think Junie has the natural talent to be something some day.

Junie's antics on TUF got a lot of people hating him and hoping to see him get destroyed. I personally hope he can conquer his demons and become the fighter that he can be.

Browning, by decision.

Tyson Griffin vs. Rafael Dos Anjos

Tyson Griffin is one of the most under rated fighters in the game today. The man KO's Urijah Faber. He just doesn't get the respect he deserves sometimes, and I am one that is guilty of shunning him on the respect issue. 

He is a great wrestler with good power in his punches, and that will be enough to stop Raffi.

Griffin, by TKO/KO.

Ryan Bader vs. Carmelo Marrero

Carmelo is cutting a lot of weight to make this fight happen.  He is listed on Sherdog.com as being a heavyweight. Marrero's only losses are to Gabriel Gonzaga and Wilson Goveia. 

I think Bader may have a bit of a problem with not having a huge strength advantage in this match up. I am going to give the nod to Marrero on this one.

Marrero, by submission.

Carlos Condit vs. Martin Kampmann

I have personally been waiting to see Carlos step up in competition for a while now. I am a firm believer in the 155 and up in the WEC being a minor league for the UFC. If a fighter is that good and you own both companies why not put them up in the one that will make more money for you? 

Carlos is on an amazing win streak that even involves avenging an earlier loss on his record. I think it was about time to see Carlos brought up to fight in the UFC.  Unfortunately I think that Kampmann might just be too good for that to happen the way it should. 

Kampmann has shown that he has the talent to make a name for himself and the KO loss to Marquardt may have slowed that down a bit. I think Kampmann can out strike Condit...hopefully I am wrong on this.

Kampmann, by TKO/KO.
