SILVA Predictions for UFC 137

Here they are:

Facebook Fights

  • 185 lbs: Dustin Jacoby (23.37) over Clifford Starks (19.29)
  • 185 lbs: Francis Carmont (21.38) over Chris Camozzi (21.22)
  • 155 lbs: Danny Downes (31.23) over Ramsey Nijem (20.49)
  • 205 lbs: Brandon Vera (30.05) over Eliot Marshall (29.64)

Spike TV Fights

  • 155 lbs: Donald Cerrone (43.49) over Dennis Siver (30.51)

Main Card Fights

  • 145 lbs: Hatsu Hioki (27.84) over George Roop (26.26)
  • 135 lbs: Scott Jorgensen (29.99) over Jeff Curran (21.51)
  • 265 lbs: Roy Nelson (30.48) over Mirko Cro Cop (27.03)
  • 265 lbs: Matt Mitrione (50.40) over Cheick Kongo (29.79)
  • 170 lbs: B.J. Penn (38.28) over Nick Diaz (30.66)

Summary

It’s amazing what happens when you take the main event away from a fight card. When the main event was Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit, this looked like a great card. Now, without the headlining title fight, it doesn’t look particularly bad, but there’s nothing special about it either. With that said, there are fights I’m looking forward to, including the main event, the co-main event, Hatsu Hioki’s debut… and I’ll admit it, I’ll be rooting for Mirko Cro Cop to deliver one last great victory.

The big underdog pick of the card

Is not a big underdog, but Danny Downes is somewhere around +175 against Ramsey Nijem, and Downes is my pick to win that fight.

SILVA vs. David Williams

Don’t take this one too seriously, because SILVA has these fighters rated extremely closely to one another, but I’m going against SILVA and taking Chris Camozzi to beat Francis Carmont.

    Underdog pick is bart palaszewski. Tyson griffin looked like shit at the weigh in. Diaz is my other underdog pick as is Carmont and Starks.

    Carmont and Starks win, who needs SILVA when you have Howard.

    Howard destroys Silva again. The winners are at @howardmorton on twitter.

    Diaz wins,.what a night. Howard wins again.

    Look, obviously you’ve been making some good picks, and I’ll be the first to give you credit for that. But there’s no need for the smug nature of your comments.
