My pics are:
- B.J. Penn, taking the title - Round 3.
- Randy Coture, TKO round 2.
- Demian Maia, Decision. Practically too close to call imo, but if I had to choose.
- Florian, decision.
- Nate Diaz, TKO.
I have all the same, except i am going with Edgar, AGAIN. Hopefully couture will make it last longer then 2 rounds. I want him to beat Toney up for 3 rounds and then make that big mouth tap with seconds left. Couture really needs to beat him up bad, and make this a lop sided fight..as it should be. The guy has no respect for mma and he needs to learn what a real fight is. There is no way his fat ass will be able to go 3 full rounds. This is a totally different kind of conditioning
i believe edgar has penn's number.. edgar was the first in his weight class to take bj down not once but a number of times.. penn is not getting better but edgar is.. i think he will eek out a decision..
Next Saturday, gentleman.
Main Fight Card
- Frankie Edgar vs. B.J. Penn (Lightweight title)
- Randy Couture vs. James Toney
- Demian Maia vs. Mario Miranda
- Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard
- Marcus Davis vs. Nate Diaz
PENN via 2rd TKO. Too much is being made of Edgars two takedowns. Watch the fight, they were weak TD at best that BJ got back up from. Also need to note that Edgar attempted 10, got 2... A motivated Penn is scary.
Couture: rd 1, rearnaked.... end of Toneys MMA experiement.
Miranda (UPSET PICK): Maia has "ZERO" standup and will get caught. Miranda is fast and explosive. I think he catches Maia.
Florian UD: going to be a boring fight.
DIAZ: I am Davis fan, but he makes too many mistakes. He will probably be winning the fight, make a stupid take down attempt and get caught in a choke.
