It’s great how big of a spectacle not only the fights are now but even the weigh-in’s are something worth tuning in for, but it’s usually about 1 and a half and I don’t have that sort of time for just a weigh in. Thankfully the nice people over at SB Nation edited it down to just over 7 minutes so take a look. A few things caught my eye other than just Gonzaga’s awesome 1970’s Cop mustache, one was how ripped and vibrant Hector Lombard looked for his first cut to 170 and the other was how light Roy Nelson looked.
Here are my predictions for tomorrows UFC 166
Noons vs Sotiropoulos - Noons w/ uni dec
Kaufmen vs Eye - Eye w/ 2 rd TKO (punches)
Marquardt vs Lombard - Marquardt grinds out split dec
Boetsch ve Dolloway - Boetsch 3 rd KO (knees)
Dodson vs Montague - Dodson uni dec
Gonzaga vs Jordan - Jordan TKO (punches against fence)
Melendez vs Sanchez - Melendez split dec
Cormier vs Nelson - tough one, my mind says DC by uni dec but my heart says Big Country TKO by overhand right.
Velasquez vs Dos Santos - It’s gonna be a another great fight but I think Cain will drag JDS into deep waters and finish him in the 4th by TKO (punches)
