The UFC is shipping off to Boston this Saturday, headline by a rematch between Frankie Edgar and BJ Penn for the lightweight title. Edgar shocked everyone by defeating the champ in the first place? Can he do it again? More importantly, can I break at least .500 with predictions this time?
I like Joe Lauzon over Gabe Reudiger and Andre Winner over Nik Lentz
I’m sure Demian Maia wants to make up for his now infamous loss to Anderson Silva. Because of that, I see him beating Mario Miranda.
It hasn’t been announce as a “#1 Contenders Fight,” but you can easily see the winner of Kenny Florian vs. Gray Maynard fighting the winner of the main event. This fight should be close, but I find it difficult to ever vote against Florian. I see “Ken Flo” earning his THIRD title shot.
Nate Diaz vs. Marcus Davis is actually the fight I’m most looking forward to. Since Davis is one of my favourite fighters (plus the “Irish Hand Grenade” is the coolest nick name this side of Freakboy), and I absolutely loather Nate Diaz. Because of that, I’m taking Davis to win.
Randy Couture over James Toney. I can’t believe we’re even having this conversation.
I like Frankie Edgar, but I wasn’t all that impressed by his victory over BJ Penn, and felt he won by default. I can’t imagine BJ going into an automatic rematch like this an not coming out as a three time champion. Penn over Edgar.
