Default UFC 70 Picks

What are you thinking?

I have been reading a lot about Gonzaga and his ground attack, how good he is, and if it goes to the ground he will dominate. I’m not buying it. CroCop wins this one easily. CroCop is the kind of dependable favorite you look for, he dominates inferior opponents, ends fights effectively and rarely gets in trouble.

I’m not betting the Arlovski vs.Werdum match, but I think all the love for Werdum is a trap. AA should be able to control this match standing, Werdum is going to have to inflict some damage standing before he can work his submission magic- Arlovski is not going to just lay down. I don’t trust Arlovski, he has problems adjusting to the action, so I will pass.

I like Kongo to pull off the upset over Silva. I think Kongo should be favored in this bout. I value Kongo’s KO power more than Silva’s ground game. Kongo will hold a significant fitness advantage that will allow him to escape Silva’s LnP in rounds 2 and 3. Cheick has more weapons to end this fight than Silva. He’s a solid underdog.

A lot of people have given up on or forgotten about Sakara after his loss to McFedries. He’s a young guy, 26, that has good powerful striking and solid chin. Sakara has had a rough time lately, but he’s been competitive against two good fighters and should show a big improvement. The Matrix will look to get the fight to the ground, but Sakara is good enough to hold his own on the mat. Sakara holds a big advantage standing and that will be where this bout is decided.

CroCop -500
Kongo +205
Sakara -150
