UFC 165 Predictions Summary
September 20, 2013
Posted by on
I’ll have a write-up on the main event between Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson up at JasonSomerville.com tomorrow. For now, you’ll have to forgive me for spoiling who I’m picking to win that fight. I’m sure it will be a huge shock to everybody.
Yes, I have Jon Jones winning tomorrow… but only at an estimated 71 percent chance of winning. Alexander Gustafsson is a tougher challenger than most people are giving him credit for, and I’ll explain why that is tomorrow.
Underdog picks for this event include Wilson Reis, Mitch Gagnon, and maybe Brendan Schaub… Schaub is phasing in and out of being the underdog against Matt Mitrione. FPR hates Menjivar and only gives him a 17% chance to beat Reis, but the confidence level of that prediction is “very low” for a reason.
Enjoy the fights!
