UFC 113: Who will win? May 8, 2010

Reminder:  UFC 113 today!  Check your local pay-per-view listings.  As usually, Hawaii, fights starts at 4-4:30pm.

Here is the official fight card:

Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida  vs  Mauricio “Shogun” Rua

6′ 1″ (185 cm)                                      6’1″ (185 cm)

205 (93 kg)                                          205 (93 kg)

16-0-0                                                   18-4-0

My prediction:  It is the year of the dragon!  Lyoto Machida all the way.  But honestly, I wouldn’t be that upset if Rua won either.  Both are really good fighters and both deserve a win.

Josh “Kos” Koscheck  vs  Paul “Semtex” Daley

5′ 10″ (178 cm)                    5’9″ (175 cm)

170 (77 kg)                           170 (77 kg)

16-4-0                                    23-8-2

My prediction:  Paul Daley.  I don’t like Koscheck because of his attitude, but he is a tough fighter.  Probably, Koscheck is the front runner to win this fight, but Daley has the potential to win.  If not, this won’t be the last time we will see Paul Daley….that I can guarantee.

Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout  vs.  Jeremy “Lil’ Heathen”  Stephens

5′ 9″ (175 cm)                                    5’9″ (175 cm)

155 (70 kg)                                        155 (70 kg)

16-5-1                                                 17-5-0

My prediction:  This is a tough one. I’m putting all my faith into Sam Stout.

Kimbo Slice  vs  Matt Mitrione

6′ 2″ (188 cm)    6’3″ (191 cm)

215 (98 kg)         265 (120 kg)

4-1-0                    1-0-0

My prediction:  Man, oh, man….this fight I’m more excited about than the Machida/Rua.  I’m going to give it to Kimbo Slice, because of more experience in the ring.  Don’t get me wrong, Meathead (Mitrione) totally impress me on the TUF.  He is a strong fighter, but Slice has more heart.  This fight could go either way, but for sure it won’t go all three round.  I think Meathead’s lack of ring experience might bite him in the ass in the big bad octagon.

Patrick “The Predator” Cote  vs.  Alan “The Talent” Belcher

5′ 11″ (180 cm)                                 6’2″ (188 cm)

185 (84 kg)                                       185 (84 kg)

14-5-0                                                14-5-0

My prediction:  Cote!  It’s very rare to have almost identical stats.  Even tho, Belcher has a longer reach, I feel the Cote is a much better fighter.  (I hope I don’t have to eat those words later on tonite.)

Be safe….good luck!  And I want to know what your predictions are going to be!
