    Nothing I care about on this card really.

    In the main fights, Jones, Bisping, Davis, and McMann.

    Will be passing on this card. No interest. Not even going to bother finding a stream.

    Probably the worst card ufc have put out for a while with the main event a complete mismatch. It seems even worse now after last weeks card being so good. That being said hopefully there turns out to be a couple of decent scraps on it but seems to be one not to stay up for.

    The only good thing that could come of this is for Chael Sonnen to shock the world.

    I'm going for:
    Jones - via finish however he wants in whatever round he wants
    Bisping - UD or late tko
    Kongo - boring UD
    Davis - Wrestlefck but hoping Vinny subs him
    Miller - Decision

    Leonard Garcia $1.59 vs Cody McKenzie $2.40

    If this isn’t the Pink Slip Bowl I don’t know what it is. The loser of this fight will almost certainly get their walking papers which adds that element of desperation into the mix. Even so, Garcia is the more well rounded fight. Most fight fans, and probably Leonard himself have completely forgot that Garcia is a BJJ Brown belt with most of his wins coming by way of submission. I know right. I don’t expect to see him taking Cody down in this fight, in fact I hope he doesn’t but what I do anticipate is that he Garcia would be able to hold his own should they go to the ground. Garcia’s power is overstated, there is no question about that. Joe Rogan tries every single fight to convince us otherwise, but the guy only has 3 wins by knockout and none in recent memory. For both Rogan and Leo’s sake this fight will give him the chance to add a little fuel to the “Garcie has knockout power” campaign. McKenzie has a glass body, he has been stopped recently by Mendes with one punch to the midsection and going back to TUF Nam Phan blitz him with some quick stiff shots to the same region and put him on the mat for the win. Garcia has been known to go to the body and training with the master of game planning- Greg Jackson, this one is pretty straight forward. I don’t expect to see Cody crumple after just one shot, but I can see him being slowe



    Sara McMann/ Sheila Gaff Total Rounds Under 2.5- 2 WMMA fights in the UFC and 2 finishes. McMann is a strong wrestler on a level that Gaff has never faced and it will show once the fight hits the ground. Gaff also has the ability to end fights quickly and has done it a number of times so if she pulls the upset you won’t be let down by backing McMann.Play the Under instead of the favourite.

    War indeed. Would be awesome if he scored an upset. Most likely Jones will punish him to the tko or submit him with a darce, guillotine or anaconda

    Doesn't sound like a very specific prediction ha. I mean tko unless Jones catches him after stuffing a desperate shot

    Prediction

    Gaff is a very aggressive powerhouse with a number of first round finishes including 3 knockouts inside the first 30 seconds. She moves forward looking to engage and overwhelm her opponent with barrages of heavy handed leather. She will also mix in some solid knees to the body to further break down her opponent, before again blitzing with punches and elbows. McMann’s high level wrestling skills have been the key to her early success and will be essential to her performance here. Her takedowns have proven almost impossible to stop and she has a solid top game both working from within the guard and advancing her position to set up submission opportunities. Her timing on her takedown attempts is what makes her most effective either ducking under the striking attempts of her opponent or attacking and then changing levels to shoot. She is also strong from the clinch position, using multiple bodylock style takedowns. Gaff does some of her best work from the clinch position, but her lack of experience against this caliber of wrestler will make it hard for her to remain vertical. Sara has been working on her striking and showcased some improved stand up in her last appearance, but standing and trading with Sheila would most definitely be a mistake. When a relatively inexperienced wrestler faces a power puncher there is always that possibility that the wrestler won’t respond well from getting punch in the face. But, unless the German can stuff the early takedown attempts of McMann her chances to test this theory are going to be limited. Gaff has been submitted twice while McMann has won a pair of fights by tapout and should have a marked advantage once she gets on top so my prediction is Sara McMann to defeat Sheila Gaff by submission.
