If the UFC wants to get serious about the Flyweights fights like Cariaso/Moraga need to be on FX or the PPV, seriously this is a joke. Pickett/Wineland also could have been on the main card, that's gonna be a sick fight but I think Wineland will stop him.

I've also got Varner smashing Guillard and Jury will take out Johnson.

Gonna put some credits on Holloway and Duffee I think.

Holloway has better boxing than Garcia. Wicked body shots will tire Garcia easily, leading Holloway to an easy decision victory. Garcia better hope he can take Holloway down and submit him...thats the only way I see him winning the fight. Another loss could get Garcia cut from the UFC so you'd think he would fight smarter now. Looking at his past few fights, it seems more likely he is going to stand and brawl though.

Holloway via decision.

Duffee is a big strong guy man. Good boxing too. He should be able to KO Phil De Fries early in the 1st round. De Fries has horrible boxing, horrible wrestling, little power and okay jiujitsu. Probably one of the worst fighters in the UFC, period. What I'm afraid of is him clinching up with Duffee against the cage and tiring Duffee out before taking him down in the 2nd or 3rd round. He was able to do that to Oli Thompson. Hopefully Duffee is able to keep it standing and knock this fool out of the UFC.

Duffee via KO 1st round.

Melvin Guillard vs. Jamie Varner - I was going with Varner via sub but based on what happened in the weighins I think Melvin via TKO 1st.

Brad Pickett vs. Eddie Wineland - I like Pickett get the decision. I don't think Wineland will KO him and that's the only way I see Pickett losing.

Michael Johnson vs. Myles Jury - Michael Johnson, more of an athlete and I don't think Myles Jury is on his level yet.

Leonard Garcia vs. Max Holloway - I don't know why Garcia takes this fight, Max is a terrible matchup for him. Way to big with much better striking I think Garcia gets picked apart on the outside and Holloway wins.

Byron Bloodworth vs. Erik Perez - I'll take Perez because he's a scrappy little bastard, but really don't care to much about this one.

Preliminary card - Facebook or UFC.tv
Philip De Fries vs. Todd Duffee - I'm going with Duffee because De Fries I'm not yet sold on.
Chris Cariaso vs. John Moraga - strange fight to have on the prelims I like Cariaso as I've seen his wrestling and have been impressed by it. I believe he beats Moraga but I've never seen him fight so who knows.

I havn't checked the odds yet but I'll proberbly drop a few pennies on De Vries. He hasn't shown his best yet in the UFC and has finally made the switch to a full professional for this fight, quitting his job. He is training out of aliance with guys like Davies and Gustaf. I think Duffee has just too much muscle that might put him in trouble late on. Duffee early De Vries late I'd say. If Duffee does win Id like to see him fight miocic.

All in all stacked prelim card.

^^ I wouldn't. De Fries is absolutely terrible.

It will be hilarious to see Varner smash Guillard.

Toxic 12-28-2012 09:33 PM

I had Melvin beating Varner but that was then this is now, Melvin is the bigger LW and looks more drained at the weigh in than his opponents but this time he has had to make that cut twice in one month and I think that takes its toll. If Melvin can not end this early he is going down.

Cariaso should take this

1st - 10-9 Moraga

Danm2501 12-29-2012 06:50 PM

Cariaso-Moraga, Duffee-De Fries, Varner-Guillard, Holloway-Garcia, Leben-Brunson and Pickett-Wineland, man these prelims are awesome!
