UFC 159 predictions

Chael Sonnen will make the walk to the UFC Octagon Saturday night and try and pull of the greatest upset in the sport. If he can defeat Jon Jones he will surpass Matt Serra as being the biggest upset off all time in mixed martial arts. As interesting as that is I don't see it happening. Chael Sonnen is the fighters with the best MMA quotes, has a lot of heart, comes to fight, but don't see his hand being raised in victory. He'll have a tough time landing strikes and getting takedowns, and all that leads to not being able to mount an effective offense. If you can't attack effectively you can score and win. Jones will pick Sonnen apart and getting a TKO, possibly in the first or second. Alan Belcher and Michael Bisping will make for an interesting fight. If it's a finish, it's Belcher winning the duel. If it's a decision, Bisping takes it. At some point in the fight Bisping will be rocked, but he'll survive and eek out a decision. Roy Nelson will defeat Cheick Kongo if he takes the fight to the floor, but I think Big Country will test the waters on the feet and be outstruck in this fight. Kongo is a better strike and will outstrike Nelson to a judges decision.
