UFC 129: USA v Canada 2

As a US/Canada duel citizen I'm more excited about this card than any in recent memory. It features 9 US-Canada matchups!! That is the more than UFC 58, which was actually referred to as US vs Canada. The first time the US took it 5-3 (weird that they would use an even number), but this time Canada has the home field advantage!So what Country do you have winning this unofficial challenge? The matchups are (my picks in bold):

GSP v Shields
Mark Bocek v Ben Henderson
Rory MacDonald v Nate Diaz
Sean Pierson v Brian Foster
Yves Jabouin v Pablo Garza
Claude Patrick v Daniel Roberts
Ivan Menjivar v Charlie Valencia
Jason MacDonald v Ryan Jensen
John Makdessi v Kyle Watson

I guess I got it 5-4 US, but it's tight. The only locks I see are GSP over Shields and Rory over Nate Diaz. It kills me to pick against Makdessi, but Watson is probably lightyears ahead of him at grappling.

So who ya got?

I love how the UFC does this and doesn't advertise. My favorite is US vs. Brazil but I think they only did it once or twice.

Why on earth would you pick Ryan Jensen over J-Mac? J-Mac has some legit wins and hasn't lost to any real low level fighters his weakest loss being a freak injury against John Salter in a fight he appeared to be winning. Jensen has beaten absolutely nobody and has lost to any semi relevant fighter he has ever fought. Look for both those trends to continue.

While I agree that Jensen has never beaten a relevant fighter, MacDonald hasn't beaten a relevant fighter since April '08. Jensen looked pretty solid during the first round against Court McGee, and J-Mac hasn't fought in a year. I expect the betting line to be slightly in MacDonald's favor, but Jensen to pull off a decision victory. I couldn't just pick all the favorites

I hadn't even noticed this unlike the 117 card. Pretty cool, I guess I have it 5-4 for Canada and I would like to say I'm as impartial as it comes (in this regard, as I'm Dutch). In a way I love these unofficial nation v nation cards (like 117 and even 127 to some extent) but it kind of undermines the message that UFC could come with any card and the fans would buy it (as DW often says) when they stack a card with this many "hometown" fighters.

I hate this US vs Canada or US Vs Uk , unless its actually a international tournament to represent your country to me it should be GSP Vs Shields and the origins dont mean shit.

I hate that USA USA USA or Aussie Aussie Aussie or Barmy Army etc just respect the fighter himself.

I dont know most of those fighters so I dont care which side wins. I will be rooting for Shields though.
