UFC 113

This Saturday we will see the rematch between Lyoto Machida and Mauricio Rua. Many believe Machida received the last victory by decision undeservedly.

Machida comes in as the favorite at -185 and Rua is the underdog at +155.

This time, I don't think Rua will leave it in the hands of the judges. Look for him to take Machida down early and go for the submission. Machida has yet to be tested on the ground, but Rua is a man who can do it. My pick is Rua.

 

In a battle of the big boys, heavyweights Kimbo Slice and Matt Mitrione will square off.

The bookies feel it's anyone's guess as both fighters are listed evenly at -115.

Kimbo has definitely improved his all around game. Mitrione lacked a bit of ground skills. Neither man is impressive when it comes to cardio.

I think this one will be over by the middle of the second round. There should be a lot of big swinging here. Mitrione's length advantage will pay off. My pick is Mitrione.

And finally we will take a look at Josh Kosheck versus Paul Daley. This might have "fight of the night" all over it. These two are both extremely well rounded and full of athleticism.

Kosheck is the favorite at -230. Daley is the underdog at +180.

Daley has excellent knockout power and will need to use it early if he wants a victory here. Kosheck is quick and quite elusive. My pick is Kosheck.

Until next time, I hope you cash some tickets!
