Wanderlei vs Stann- Hopefully they just meet in the middle of the cage and slug it out. Stann has power and Wandy's chin doesn't always hold up these days. But he can still surprise us and I think he will do it here. I'm hoping, praying and predicting a Wanderlei Silva KO in round 1. This should entertain either way.

Hunt vs Struve- Struve is still young and still improving. But it seems like everytime he takes a step up and faces a guy with real power he gets put away. I think that happens again here. I can see Struve have some success early on but eventually I think Hunt lands the game changer and turns off Struve's lights. Mark Hunt continues his winning streak and title run.

Gomi vs Sanchez- I'm hoping this is like Robbie vs Kos and we see Gomi land some power shots before he is put on his back. As much as I want to keep the streak alive and say we will get another TKO. I think Sanchez is able to survive whatever damage and win this fight with takedowns.

Lombard vs Okami- I think Lombard is strong enough and well rounded enough to stay on his feet for atelast most of the fight. But Okami has proven me wrong before and I don't think anyone would be surprised if he grinded out a win here. But I think we get another big finish on this epic card that I expect to be full of them. I think Lombard eventually gets his hands off and finishes this fight.

Being that this is the lowest level of UFC card there is sometimes (TUF finales you know), I'm actually looking forward to seeing Cacres vs Kang, Mizugaki vs Caraway and Tavares vs Fukuda, I think they are three well match contests, decent for the stream.

I like a lot of the Asians to win on the Facebook card. Lin will beat Guimaraes, Kang will beat Cacres and Tukudome will beat Marcello.

I do think Caraway will beat Mizugaki though. For starters Mizugaki is supposed to lose this so his win then lose rinse repeat pattern can continue. Also I rewatched some Caraway fights and I think he may be underrated. He isn't has bad as his pussy rep from TUF, he's been grappling well. I think he wrecks Rousey no problem.

Tavares vs Fukuda is tough to pick, toss up for me, has a chance to be a clinchfest or stinker. I'll take Tavarez.

I think the Pride Never Die main card is awesome, all 6 fights, I'd pay to see.

I think Hirota will beat and possibly KO Yahya. I thought he beat Pat Healy when they fought and if Pat wasn't as tough has he was he might of went down for good in that fight. I think Hirota will be able to and keep the fight where he wants and attack the face enough to end it.

Smart money is on Kim to grind off 15 minutes for the win, but I'm thinking Siyar is the only one of them that will have what it takes for the finish and he will get it with a huge right hand.

I think Lombard is a terrible matchup for Okami all around. He's just not the type of guy physically and in his skillset that is gonna see Okami get to where he want this, He's gonna end up in Lombard's personal space to often and take a fews hots that are gonna signal the end soon after.

Gomi vs Sanchez is gonna depend on how good Sanchez is at getting his takedowns. He goes for a lot of takedowns so it's safe to assume he will start to get them if the fight goes on a while, but Sanchez has also shown that just because he goes for a lot doesn't mean he finishes them, Gomi's takedown defense needs to be crisp though. On the feet Snachez will get his face mauled again. I got Gomi with either a KO or decision where he just batters Sanchez for about half the fight.

My line of thinking goes the same for Hunt vs Struve as it did the Gomi Sanchez fight; Struve wins this fight on the ground, Hunt wins this on the feet. Hunt has Sonnen like submission defense and Struve most dangerous offense is when he can get his branches around his opponent. Hunt's take down d is nothing to write home about but really neither is are Struves takedowns. I think Hunt is gonna KO Struve. Stefan's style of kickboxing doesn't take full advantage of his length, he gets to close and over commits too often and has been leveled because of it over and over again by far inferior and less powerful strikers of similar stature to Hunt for who this will not be the first time he has squared up with a man this size. Semmy did beat Hunt, but with Schilt, there is almost no finer example in how to fully utilize length in striking. Hunt's just gotta keeo this up and he might start to beat Stuve how he beat Rothwell if he oesn't Ko him.

Wanderlei Silva id better at MMA in every single aspect to Brian Stann but he wars, he blitzes, he gets loco, and when things get loco anything can happen. Wanderlei via PRIDE NEVER DIE! Knockout!
