Tom Watson Vs Alessio Sakara at UFC Manchester

Can't embed article as I'm on my phone.

This should be a barn burner. Sakara has more technical stand up but Watson hits hard and has a crazy good chin. Someone is going down though!

If Sakara's defense is sound he could give Watson some trouble, but I see Watson winning overall. He's got a tough chin, heavy hands ands Sakara's chin has seen more wars over the years.

I lost all respect for Kong when Alex Reid gave him a 50/50 fight.

Lol I totally forgot that Watson got all he could handle from a fighter with an 8-8 record, and on a 7-fight losing streak!

I'm not too big on Watson. As mentioned earlier, he won a toss up decision against Katie Price's old boy toy. He was beaten up everywhere by Thales Leites, and got pretty damn lucky against Nedkov.

He has shown he does have good heart and a tough chin. He looked solid against Ninja Rua. Sakkara may have decent boxing but doesn't have a very good chin.

I see Sakara taking a decision or Watson getting a KO

haha yep, I don't think Watson put ANY training into that and it nearly cost him his career. IIRC Reid was landing some hefty knees at one point that had him a bit wobbled.

If I remember correctly Reid nearly tapped him with a triangle too. Awful fight from Watson either way, didn't appear that he took it seriously.

I remember my family, who watched it as a result of the big brother shit, said they had a lot of respect for Reid after it. I just thought Kong looked abysmal tbh.

Reid Vs Barrett in a PPV main event with losing records is the worst moment in British MMA.
