Re: UFC 121 Predictions
Here are my picks, copied from another forum I post at.
Main card with analysis
Schaub dirtnaps Gonzaga. Gonzaga has not impressed me at all. Schuab isn't great, but is better than Gonzaga.
Hamill over Ortiz by decision. I see this going the distance, but Hamill will control the fight with his wrestling combined with Ortiz being old and washed up.
Thiago over Sanchez via decapitation. Sanchez can only win by turning this into a wrestling match, but if he can't take and hold Thiago down, he is going to bed in the second.
Shields over Kampmann. A lot of people think Shields is another Jon Fitch lay and pray type, but Shields despite his last 2 fights going the distance has 8 stoppages before that. I see Shields using his wrestling to eventually get a submission in the third.
Brock over Cain, dirtnap in the second. I am not buying the hype on Cain. He is good, but I don't think he has the power to KO Brock, he might be able to out wrestle Brock, but with Brock having 20 lbs on him, that might be a lot harder than it sounds, and I think Cain's superior cardio won't come into play, since Brock ends up winning via ground and pound in the third.
