Here’s my thoughts on the fights i’m looking forward to.
Anderson Silva (c) vs Chris Weidman – Sooner or later someone’s going dethrone Silva but, I think Anderson’s striking is on another level & he will KO Weidman. If Chris gets “Spider” to the ground I think he’ll do more damage than what Chael Sonnen could muster, this is what the “All-America” has to do without getting submitted like Henderson & Sonnen.
Frankie Edgar vs Charles Oliveira – Let’s be honest about two things the three defeats that Edgar is coming off are on paper, you could argue that hes coming into this fight after one defeat & Oliveira isn’t expected to win this fight. Frankie wins TKO or decision & if Charles pulls off an upset it’s more than likely a submission.
Mark Muñoz vs Tim Boetsch – Both fighters coming off defeats at the hands of the divisions main contenders, now these two are fighting to gain their place as contenders again. Probably the toughest fight to call on this card, I think I’ll vote with my heart & go with Muñoz but, wouldn’t be surprised if Boetsch gets it, he’s come out of nowhere recently & established himself as a top 10 fighter in the MW Division.
Cub Swanson vs Dennis Siver – Dennis has adjusted well with his drop to FW winning his two bouts coming into this fight. You say these two fighter’s names & Cub automatically springs to mind as the better fighter but, Siver’s settled in well with two decision wins & he’s a veteran who’s seen it all before, this will be an upset Swanson gets knocked-out.
Mike Pierce vs David Mitchell – Don’t know much about Mitchell, he had a good ground game earlier in his career winning nine out of his first eleven fights via submission. Pierce on the other hand is a wrestler who has scored a few KO wins, he’s had three defeats in his UFC career & they were decisions against the division’s best. Neither fighter has been stopped in their career prior to this fight & I doubt that will change, Mike gets the decision.
