Now for some @ufc predictions, and why (going w/ the three biggest fights, don’t know enough about the other guys on the main card): Marquardt over Ellenberger – I think Marquardt will be too big and strong over the course of the fight. Ellenberger has trouble w/ cardio. Slight chance Marquardt’s short tunaround will play a role, but I’m going w/ “The Great”. The next one is tough, and up until writing this, I was going w/ Condit, but I just realized Hendrick’s is too powerful for Condit. Condit could pull of a sub, but Hendrick’s has awareness (from a life of wrestling, and now fighting), and will avoid such attempts. Look for Hendrick’s to be GSP’s next challenge. And now for the finale, GSP all the way. Nick will bruise up GSP’s face w/ his pitter patter, but GSP will do what he does, take the fight to the mat, and dominate on top. I don’t necessarily see a finish on his part, but a dominating performance. Again, GSP will be too powerful.
These welterweights are frickin’ powerful, good thing I’m a lightweight now!
