UFC 129: St.Pierre vs Shields. Breakdown and predictions
I do this on pretty much every forum I'm a part of and I will continue that trend here. I will put up the entire card(subject to change depending on how early I put it up) and breakdown the main card and make my predictions. Feel free to debate and make your own picks. I will post the winners after the event takes place.
UFC 129: St.Pierre vs Shields April 30th
UFC Welterweight Championship:
(Champ)Georges St-Pierre vs Jake Shields
My heart is with Shields...............however I just don't see him having much of a chance in this fight. He could perhaps pull off a submission, I just feel that he won't be able to take GSP down and GSP clearly has the better stand up. So even though I'm rooting for Shields............................
Winner: Georges St-Pierre
UFC Featherweight Championship:
(Champ)Jose Aldo vs Mark Hominick
Jose Aldo is simply a beast. Hominick has looked impressive but Jose is lighting fast and has brutal stand-up, and a BJJ blackbelt. I'm not giving Hominick much of a chance in this one.
Winner: Jose Aldo
Jason Brilz vs Vladimir Matyushenko
This is close to a toss up. Both have excellent wrestling, but Brilz stand-up while not that great is better then Vlads
Winner: Jason Brilz
Randy Couture vs. Lyoto Machida
This depends on who can implement their gameplan and Randy is a master at that. If he can get ahold of Machida and press him up against the cage and dirty box with Machida he will take it. Machida's elusive style has cost him a couple of wins. He doesn't engage as much as he should instead choosing to counter, he won't be able to do that up against the cage. Machidas striking is phenominal though and Coutures chin is questionable.
Winner: Lyoto Machida
Mark Bocek vs. Ben Henderson
This one is easy, Bocek needs to submit Bendo to win and Bendo just doesn't tap. Bendo also has great wrestling so he can dictate where the fight will take place and his striking is much better then Boceks.
Winner: Ben Henderson
PRELIMS: I won't be breaking down the Prelims just yet and instead will just bold who I think will win.
Nate Diaz vs. Rory MacDonald
Brian Foster vs. Sean Pierson
Pablo Garza vs. Yves Jabouin
Claude Patrick vs. Daniel Roberts
Ivan Menjivar vs. Charlie Valencia
Jason MacDonald vs. Ryan Jensen
John Makdessi vs. Kyle Watson
And there we go. I hope whoever watches this enjoys the fights and again freel free to make your picks.
