    Evans by decision.

    Alexander by unbridled negro rage.

    Parisyan by decision.

    Fisher by TKO.

    The moneyline I got from my bookie for the Parisyan/Chonan fight is at -350/+275 but I think the odds should be a bit tighter than that (-225/+175 is my guess) so I just might place money on Chonan this time.

    Thoughts?

    Plus:
    Lytle by sub 2nd round

    Im not sure who to pick between Edgar and Fisher, i think Fishers the better fighter but with Edgars energy and wrestling who knows.

    I dont think Houston is going to win this fight. I think he is going to try and rush like always and wear himself out. I see Silva also taking this fight to the ground

    1. Not really that interested
    2. Little brothers wedding that day, with stuff spilling over well into my normal "hay guise, come over and watch the UFC with me" time.

    I'm still not sure if I'll watch this card. Don't really think it's worth the $40. Only fights I care about are Lytle/Alves, Karo/Ryo, Edgar/Fisher.

    -Evans vs Bisping, Evans has superior wrestling and decent standup, if he can avoid Bisping’s knee then he should be able to dictate the fight to a decision, no problem.


    -Alexander vs Silva
    This should be a close standup war, but I think Alexander has a good chance of getting caught, he was dropped momentarily by a Jardine hook… Silva is a BJJ blackbelt and coming from Chuteboxe, his muay thai and clinch game is strong. Alexander likes to fight up close and I believe Silva will be superior in the clinch. So as long as Silva doesn’t get caught by an Alexander bomb, he should be able to grind out a decision or get a TKO. Silva via TKO or dec.


    -Parisyan vs Chonan
    Chonan is a decent fighter but I don’t see him bringing anything to the table that Karo cannot counter. Karo is a tough guy and is almost impossible to finish, and pretty much impossible to submit. Expect to see Karo on top a lot with some GnP and a lot of Judo throws. This will most likely end in a decision for Karo but it can also end in a submission (RNC or armbar).


    -Edgar vs Fisher
    Fisher is a force at 155lbs, he lost the title contention to Hermes Franca, but still a top contender at 155lbs it should be atleast a dec. win over Edgar.

    -Lytle vs Alves
    Alves via TKO


    -Reinhardt vs Joe Lauzon
    Reinhardt is 38 years old and known primarily for his ground game, also his first UFC fight coming from smaller shows.. my money is on J-Lau via TKO or Decision.


    -Caudillo vs Aurelio
    Aurelio via tko


    -Gono vs McCrory
    Gono is a pretty decent fighter coming from Pride, but I haven’t seen a lot of Japanese fighters do well in the octagon (do they even have a cage to train in over in Japan??).. I would have to say McCrory because of Octagon/home field/rules advantage.
