UFC 166 & Bellator 104 in review, plus Bellator 105 and UFN: Machida vs. Munoz previe

Saturday we witnessed arguably the best fight card of the year with arguably the best fight of the year to date. Letís dive into this right away:

UFC 166: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos 3 in Review

Main Event: Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos

Prediction: Velasquez by strikes. Result: Same. Velasquez proved heís a step above JDS by dominating him the entire fight and finishing him.

Co-main Event: Daniel Cormier vs. Roy Nelson

Prediction: Cormier by strikes. Result: Cormier by decision. Cormier controlled the entire fight but Nelson is a hard man to finish for anyone.

Gilbert Melendez vs. Diego Sanchez

Prediction: Melendez by strikes. Result: Melendez by decision. These two fighters put on a brawl that arguably earned fight of the year status.

Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Shawn Jordan

Prediction: Jordan by strikes. Result: Gonzaga by strikes. Gonzaga can never be underestimated and he proved it Saturday with a knockout.

John Dodson vs. Darrell Montague

Prediction: Montague by submission. Result: Dodson by strikes. Dodson is a dangerous striker and just shot himself back into title contention.

Overall score: 2.5/5; .5 prediction percentage. Velasquez got 1 for his win over JDS, Cormier got 0.5, Melendez got 0.5, and Gonzaga got 0.5.

Bellator 104 in Review

Main Event: War Machine vs. Ron Kesler

Prediction: War Machine by strikes. Result: Kesler by submission. Keslerís been the dark horse of the welterweight tournament this season.

Co-main Event: Brent Weedman vs. Rick Hawn

Prediction: Hawn by strikes. Result: Hawn by decision. Hawn knows how to win fights and once again made it into the tournament finals.

Kendall Grove vs. Joe Vedepo

Prediction: Vedepo by submission. Result: Grove by decision. Grove won in his promotional debut and should do well in the next tournament.

Eric Prindle vs. Peter Graham

Prediction: Prindle by strikes. Result: Graham by decision. Graham is no slouch and proved it against former heavyweight contender Prindle.

Overall score: 0.5/4; .125 prediction percentage. 0.5 for Rick Hawnís win by decision. This has probably been my worst prediction to date.

Bellator 105 Predictions

Main Event: Alexander Sarnavskiy vs. Ricardo Tirloni

Prediction: Sarnavskiy by submission. Sarnavskiy is a submission specialist with most of his fights ending via this method. Expect it again.

Co-main Event: Saad Awad vs. Will Brooks

Prediction: Awad by submission. Awad won in their first meeting and itís likely that he will win this second time. However, thatís to be seen.

Siala-Mou ďMight MoĒ Siliga vs. Ron Sparks

Prediction: Sparks by strikes. Both men are aging fighters but Sparks has more MMA experience while Mighty Mo is a kick boxer by trade.

Eugene Fadiora vs. Andreas Spang

Prediction: Fadiora by submission. The incoming Brit and BAMMA veteran is looking to make a splash at his Bellator promotional debut.

UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Munoz

Main Event: Lyoto Machida vs. Mark Munoz

Prediction: Machida by decision. Machida is making his middleweight debut but at the same time knows how to win fights most of the time.

Co-main Event: Ross Pearson vs. Melvin Guillard

Prediction: Guillard by strikes. Guillard hits hard for a lightweight and his last match proved how dangerous he still is. Pearson though can win.

Jimi Manuwa vs. Ryan Jimmo

Prediction: Manuwa by strikes. Manuwa is undefeated including his two UFC fights and it looks like he will stay that way for the near future.

Norman Parke vs. Jon Tuck

Prediction: Tuck by submission. The rising Ultimate Fighter alumni is still undefeated and is going up against fellow TUF alum, Parke.

Alessio Sakara vs. Nicholas Musoke

Prediction: Sakara by strikes. Sakara is in a due or die situation where he maybe looking for a new job should he loose to newcomer Musoke.

Phil Harris vs. John Lineker

Prediction: Lineker by strikes. Lineker is looking good in the UFC so far but his tendency to miss weight could be a bit of a problem again.
