UFC Predictions Krzysztof Soszynski vs Stann

Stann has only been out of the first round once. If Soszynski can avoid Stann in the first round he will be able to break down his rigid fighting style with his unorthodox fighting style. Stann is a military man and his fight style is like strict and regiment like his background. Mixed martial arts is unpredictable and can change a moments notice and Stann will not be able to handle Soszynski.

Stann has not fought real high level fighters and this will be his first time fighting in the UFC and he will not use to the atmosphere while Soszynski has fought before and has been accustomed to the high pace of the UFC from his coaches and being on the Ultimate Fighter show.

Soszynski has more experience and better prepared from his MMA camp at Team Quest while Stann does not have the training partners and high level of training that Soszynski has. Also Soszynski is Canadian and will be fighting for the home town country so he will be well prepared and egged on from the crowd.

“Handsome” Matt Wiman (+115) vs Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout (-145)

“Handsome” Matt Wiman (+115) vs Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout (-145)

Bet on MMA at Bodog

Out of all the UFC 97 fights, this fight is the best underdog fight to wager on. There is no way Sam “Hands of Stone” Stout (13-5-1) should be a -145 at most online sportsbooks. If there is a definition of a one-dimensional fighter in mixed martial arts, it would be Sam Stout. Let’s face it: he is on the UFC card to appease the Canadian fans. Sam Stout really has no business in the UFC octagon and most of his UFC fights have shown that he cannot fight on the ground.

An even better sports bet is to do a UFC prop bet for this fight to go all three rounds. First Stout has not shown he can KO guys and 5 out of his last 6 UFC fight have all went to the decision. Take the underdog bet on the money line and take the prop bet and if your online sportsbook allows it, take both bets with a UFC parlay bet.

UFC 97 Preview, Denis Kang vs Professor X

Denis Kang (-325) vs Xavier Foupa-Pokam (+250)

Bet on MMA at Bodog

Professor X Xavier Foupa-Pokam (20-8) is a French Kick Boxer who will have a very tough time against Denis Kang (31-11) who is seeking redemption. Showing the first 2 rounds of Kang’s fight versus Alan Belcher to a young mixed martial arts student is the best way for him to learn to fight the perfect MMA fight. I t was pure text book.

Kang will wait for the perfect moment and once he shoots in for takedown and gets Professor X to the ground, he will be able to use his dominating top control game to hold Professor X with his good posture and base. Professor X is good at fighting from his back but he is loose, and if Kang can pass the guard and gain side control he will be able to submit him.

Nate Quarry vs Jason MacDonald Preview

UFC betting

Jason “The Athlete” MacDonald (21-11) will have the support of his home country and he will be fighting a very overrated fighting in Nate “The Rock” Quarry (10-3). Nate “The Rock” Quarry is a product of the Ultimate Fighting reality show and he is definitely getting the soft betting lines as a result of this. The TUF betting bump as it will

Bottom Line: The biggest advantage MacDonald will have is that he has now moved over to train at Jackson's Submission Fighting, under the guidance Greg Jackson who will formulate a game plan that MacDonaldwill follow. Just look at all the Greg Jackson fighters and how they have listened to him and they way they fight in the octagon.

If MacDonald follows Jackson’s game plan, he will have no problem with Quarry who basically trains at a club with not very many fighters to help him prepare. MacDonald has Georges St Pierre, Rashad Evans, Keith Jardine, David Loiseau, Nate Marquardt, Joey Villasenor, Karo Parisyan and Denis Kang to help him prepare while Quarry trains at Next Level MMA who has no one to push him

UFC 97 Fight Prediction Chuck Liddell vs Shogun

UFC Light Heavyweight Fight: Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (+165) vs Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell (-205)

UFC betting at BetCRIS

This is the perfect fight for Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (17-3). His UFC fights have all been disappointing . . .very very disappointing. He got beaten badly by Forrest Griffin at UFC 76: Knockout and it took 3 rounds before he was able to beat an aging Mark Coleman at UFC 93: Franklin vs. Henderson. He ran out of gas and Coleman was someone he should have beaten in earlier rounds. Shogun was the best light heavyweight in the world and was a top 3 pound for pound fighter just 4 years ago.

Bottom Line: The million dollar question is if Shogun has the cardio back. Though never known for cardio, he is younger and not in shape from his long time away from fighting. He has had a long lay off from various injuries so it is hard to gauge his return but at +165 by most online sportsbooks, this bet is hard to pass up on a fighter that was once considered one the best pound-for-pound fighters in the world. He came from the same camp as Anderson Silva and his skills striking-wise are on par with the middleweight champion. Shogun will win this fight on speed and being the younger fighter.

UFC 96 Why is Matt Brown Fighting

Brown has no business fighting in the UFC. He has no grappling and is basically a bar room brawler that has a heart when he fights. He really have no skills other than his heart but when he fights better opponent he will be exposed for his lack of talent. He is only fighting in this UFC card because he was the TUF reality series and he has a name.

How can a guy that barley has a .500 record still be fighting in the UFC. Drago is stronger, more powerful, has better grappling, has better technical striking and comes from a better training camp. This fight is a no brainer. I would lay a lot of money on a Pete Sell victory. At the end of the day Matt brown does not have the power to knock out Sell but Sell does and in the TUF realtiy show he got subbed by Amir Sadollah by triangle choke in Round 2 and he was a fighter with no MMA experince.

UFC 96 Fight Anaylsis Matt Hamill vs Munoz

Mark “The Philippine Wrecking Machine´ Munoz (5-0) is a better wrestler than Hamill is. We constantly hear that Hamill is great wrestler but he is not as good as the UFC markets him to be. Matt has a silver medal in Greco-Roman wrestling and a gold medal in freestyle wrestling from the 2001 Summer Deaflympics.. Sure he was great among deaf competitors but he never fought able bodied fighters.

In essence he was big fish in a small pond. Don’t get me wrong he also fought and was a three-time NCAA Division III National Champion in wrestling at Rochester Institute of Technology. But to my recollection, I don’t remember Rochester Institute of Technolog being a real big power house school in wreslting. Also Division III is not as good as Div 1 or Div 2.

UFC Preview - Carwin vs Gonzaga

Shane Carwin is a legitimate fighter but he is still a one dimensional fighter. He has power and wrestling but when he faces a top level well rounded fighter he will get picked apart and exposed. UFC sports betting wise, the odds are still good at -175 to be worth laying on Gonzaga.

Even though Carwin is a better wrestler he will not try to shoot in and take this fight to the ground since he knows Gonzaga is a world class grappler. Instead he will try to stand and trade punches with Gonzaga and that will be his mistake.

At the end of the day do we even know that Carwin is a legitimate fighter? He has not fought a top level fighter in his career and he has not been past the first round. If Gonzaga can take him past the first round he will be out of his comfort zone. Carwin has a lot of muscle and is very big fighter and once gets past a certain point his body type will tire much faster than Gonzaga. At 264 pounds his muscles need a lot of air to recuperate and all Gonzaga has to do is stay on the outside and lay kicks to push him back.

UFC 96 Jackson vs Jardine Fight Prediction

Sports betting wise I highly recommend betting a lot on the UFC underdog. Greg Jackson is the best MMA strategist in the world and just look at his past records with fighters. All of his fighters train hard and most importantly listen to his game plan. Another great bet to make is to make a UFC prop bet for Jardine to win by 3 round decision.

At 5 Dimes this UFC prop bet pays out +610. The reason why? Greg Jacksons knows Rampages has a lot of power but he has bad conditioning and if Jardine stays on the outside and use lower legs kicks he can score points and eventually get the take down. Just like in the fight between Rashad Evans and Chuck Liddell, Jardine will move laterally and stay out of Rampage's range. Only at the right moment will Jardine engage. Bet the prop and bet the money line and take the parlay bets on both for these 3 bets for very good pay out.
