Well 6th-rounders we have yet another great event coming at you tonight on SPIKE TV and here you will be receiving the fastest results anywhere on the net. Ultimate Fight Night Live 19 will be live on SPIKE tonight at 8pm est followed by the premier of the highly anticipated The Ultimate Fighter Season 10. As a contributing writer it is my duty to bring to you my thoughts and predictions on tonight’s event.
After recent dismal showings for my picks I want to turn things around and get my ratio up up and away. I’m currenat at 60-54 which is laughable but not after Tonight. Here are my picks, let me know if you agree.
UPDATE: 8-1 outcome
Main event (to be televised):
Nate Diaz vs. Melvin Guillard: As my colleague said in his picks Diaz has been having cutting trouble to reach the 155 limit and I feel as though it will not effect him in anyway. However, he will need to watch out for Melvin who can get you with looping shots. I do think Diaz is mature for his experience level and training with Renzo Gracie in California definitely helps. See Diaz take the W in round 2
Roger Huerta vs. Gray Maynard: A long abscense has kept Huerta out of the ring for a good while now and this will be his achilles heel in tonights fight. Gray is undefeated in his MMA career but has a tendency to not finish fights as hes only finished 1 fight in the UFC (rest going to decision) I do think the ring rust will get the best of Huerta and drop this fight to Gray. Maynard by decision
Nate Quarry vs. Tim Credeur: Nate Quarry, a fan favorite is looking to get back into the mix of the middleweight division as he battles 12-2 The Ultimate Fighter alum Tim “Crazy” Credeur. Both fighters have very respectable records and ability to finish fights so dont expect this fight to go to the judges scorecard. Nate is a passionate fighter and will be emotional when he takes out Tim in the 2nd round.
Sam Stout vs. Phillipe Nover: BREAKING NEWS, fight has been called off!
Carlos Condit vs. Jake Ellenburger: Condit is a very underrated fighter but was well known in the sister league of the UFC, the WEC. Carlos has had one fight in the UFC against Kampmann that ended with a loss on his card but look for him to rebound and put on a clinic against Ellenburger. Condit by decision
Mike Pyle vs. Chris Wilson: both Mike and Chris have tasted recent defeat in the UFC so both need victories to remain a part of the company. However, Mike Pyles camp, Xtreme Couture has been known to produce strong competitors and tonight Pyles hand will be raised in victory
Jeremy Stephens vs. Justin Buchholz: From experience alone I see Jeremy taking this fight even though hes coming off back to back losses.
C.B. Dollaway vs. Jay Silva: Silva will definitely have his hands full when he takes on C.B. Dollaway in tonights show. The newcomer will unfortunately be overwhelmed by CB and taste defeat in his debut performance with the UFC.
Ryan Jensen vs. Steve Steinbeiss: Ryan Jensen will take out Steinbeiss in round 1 via submission
Brock Larson vs. Mike Pierce: Brocks experience and aggression will take this fight from Mike Pierce. Brock is the victor in round 1
