Fedor Emelianenko vs Dan Henderson
Everyone is going with Hendo here and I’m thinking Fedor gets his shit together and wins this. Mainly because the cardio of both of these fighters past round 2 has been suspect. Secondly, Fedor is coming in about 20lbs heavier.
Marloes Coenen (c) vs Miesha Tate
I think Tate will be aggressive enough to get a decision.
Robbie Lawler vs Tim Kennedy
Tough call here as Lawler has improved all over the place and still possesses his one touch lights out power. Kennedy is a grinder though with great cardio and excellent wrestling. I like Lawler in this one as his wrestling is good too he just doesn’t get to showcase it much and with Kennedy not being a threat in the striking department edge goes to Lawler. However, Kennedy does have a decent submission game, mostly the RnC.
Paul Daley vs Tyron Woodley
If Daley connects its over. I’m banking on Woodley’s wrestling being waaay too much for Daley to handle. Daley’s ground game has shown to be terrible.
Scott Smith vs Tarec Saffiedine
A step up for Saffiedine who was fighting on the Challengers show not too long ago. Looks like Smith is the dog in this fight by a decent amount. Saffiedine is probably predicted to pick Smith apart.
Screw it I’m going with Smith – I’d rather pull for him winning anyways.
