UFC 118 Predictions
BJ Penn d. Frankie Edgar via submission in Round 4
- I think it will be a very back and forth similar to their last match up. Edgar will win 2 of the first 3 rounds before Penn catches him in a submission.
Randy Couture d. James Toney via stoppage in Round 2
- Toney will land some good hits, but Couture will hold his own. I'm predicting that Couture will have a hard time getting the big guy down, but once round two begins, Toney will be gassed. Couture then begins his GNP for the win.
Demian Maia d. Mario Miranda via submission in Round 2. Haven't watched much of these guys, but Maia has won against some good competition (Chael Sonnen/Nate Quarry/Ed Herman)
Kenny Florian d. Gray Maynard via submission in Round 3. Maynard is a tough wrestler but I'll predict the black belt in BJJ to find a submission.
Nate Diaz d. Marcus Davis via split decision. Weird match up. They have identical styles (BJJ/Boxing). Davis has more power but Diaz has a 6 inch reach and a good chin. Diaz is better on the ground, but Davis has never been submitted (at least I don't think). Everything points to a Diaz win, but this is only his 2nd fight at 170 and Davis is a "big" 170. Also, Davis' best fighting is a few years behind him.
Gabe Reudiger d. Joe Lauzon via submission in Round 2. Gabe is an idiot so its hard to pick him for the win, but I think his skills overmatch Lauzon's.
