UFC 96 is almost here, so lets hear some predictions:
Quinton Jackson vs. Keith Jardine:
Machida will have to wait a little longer for his shot. The only way I see Jardine winning is by decision. Meaning, he is going to have to use the same strategy that Forest used. But I’m sure ‘Page has worked on that weakness, so barring a miracle, Page should take it via KO.
Shane Carwin vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Carwin is a beast. He has dominated his competition without breaking a sweat. None of his fights have gone past the 1st. If he wants to continue his streak he has to avoid going to the ground where GG will use his BJJ and that’s why I think GG will win. Carwin will get sloppy and GG will get the armbar…
Matt Brown vs. Pete Sell
Sell has the reach advantage and when he is on he is very hard to beat, but something tells me Sell will go overly confident and Brown will surprise him to get the victory
Matt Hamill vs. Mark Munoz
Munoz is going to get a tough welcoming into the UFC. Hamill will keep the fight on the ground and use his wrestling to get top position and earn the victory via hammer fist in the 2nd..
Gray Maynard vs. Jim Miller
I expect Maynard to use his GnP to earn the decision. Miller’s jits is not good enough to overpower Maynard, but I been wrong before lol
Tamdan McCrory vs. Ryan Madigan McCrory
Should handle Madigan with no problem, unless he makes the same mistake he made against Hazelett, and gets submitted he should win and give Madigan his first loss. .
Kendall Grove vs. Jason Day
All the pressure in the world is on Grove, if he losses White has said he will release him, so I expect Grove to leave it all on the octagon and get a victory.
Brandon Vera vs. Mike Patt:
Ever since he dropped to LHW Vera has been a huge disappointment to say the least, but I expect him to win this fight, if he doesn’t he should consider retiring.
Aaron Riley vs. Shane Nelson:
Nelson was big talker on TUF and he got owned by Efrain, He should get the same treatment by Riley
