UFC 157 - Who came up with this card and WHY?
I seldom post - but after seeing this UFC 157 line-up, I felt like ushering forth some of my thoughts on this one.
After reading the main fight card - I saw some fighters in 157 who I really like. But I don't like the fights they are in. I like to see exciting close fights.
In my mind as well as almost every professional prediction journalist.....they are almost in total agreement on who will win in every fight.
ALMOST EVERYBODY is picking ROUSEY, MACHIDA, FABER, McGEE, & KOSCHECK.
I think one of them I read was the "Bleacher Report" & all 6 of their writers picked the exact same winners in every fight. Same with another one of those type of sites....all of their writers picked the same winner - the one's above.
Is Joe Silva still the UFC matchmaker (who I'm sure also has Dana White making suggestions)....and if so, what do you think of the main card he is giving us? I just don't get this line up for 157.
Lawler is 3-5 in his last 8 fights & I saw his last one & he just looked like somebody had stolen his mojo.
I won't get into why I like a certain fighter in each one of these fights....most folks probably already would know why.
I'll just ask this. Does anybody disagree with what I've stated & think the main card fights are going to be competitive & hard to pick a winner.
And this - if u generally agree with me - which fight do u think has the best chance of an upset?
I would go with the Faber vs. Menjivar fight, although Faber has never lost 2 fights in a row & he lost his last one.
Oh yea - might as well ask this too although it may have already been asked....so I'll change it up a little.
What do u think the chances are that Rousey wins by arm bar in the 1st round?
Also - if u don't think she'll arm bar her in the 1st round.
Using the same percentages, what are the percentages she will win the fight by arm bar in one of the last 4 rounds? (This will be a 5 rounder, right?)
