UFC on FX 7: Belfort vs Bisping is going down tomorrow night from Ibirapuera Arena in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
It should be a very competitive and even night of fights tonight, and that makes predicting the winners that much harder.
I'm not saying this is what is going to happen tomorrow night, but with Belfort's blazing hand speed and knockout ability I can't seem to think of a way that Bisping get's out of this fight with his conscience in check.
Bisping will have to try and muscle Belfort around, use his superior gas tank and not let "the Phenom" find his range, while trying to land his solid jab. But I just can't see Bisping being able to circle around and jab away at a killer like Belfort.
Belfort via KO, round 2
Very hard fight to pick here. Both fighters are very experienced and have had very illustrious careers. Rothwell likes to push the pace a bit more and I think this will make a big difference in the fight. If the fight goes to the mat, Gonzaga is probably the better grappler, giving him a better shot at success. However, I don't think the fight will get to mat, and unexpected amazing head kicks aside, I think Rothwell stands a better chance on the feet and I smell a finish early on.
Rothwell via TKO, round 1
Daniel Sarafian vs. C.B. Dolloway
Haven't really seen much from Sarafian so I don't know what to expect from him. But what I do know is that C.B is a tough durable fighter, and seeing the odds with him as the underdog in Sarafian's UFC debut, makes me know there is something special at Sarafian. I'm going to go with my gut here and say Sarafian wins, more or less because I really don't like Dolloway, the fart face.
Daniel Sarafian via Submission, round 2
I like the Russian to win this fight, as he is more well rounded than Tavares and won't be held on the ground like a lot of Tavares' opponents. Should be a close fight but I expect Khabib to be able to contend during the whole fight and to win a decision.
Khabib Nurmagomedov via Unanimous decision
