UFC 126 Silva vs. Belfort

It’s almost Super Bowl Sunday and the Ultimate Fighting Championship is doing their part to help make this one hell of a weekend. On what is already one of the biggest weekends in Las Vegas, UFC 126 will take place at Mandalay Bay the day before the Super Bowl. Dana White is presenting a stacked card and probably one of the best since UFC 100. The headliner is the much anticipated fight between Vitor Belfort and Anderson Silva. Belfort has battled injuries that resulted in this bout getting pushed back. “The Spider’s” last few fights have been lackluster and he needs a good performance to silence his critics. Silva is one of the best pound for pound mma artists around but if he lets down his guard, Belfort’s power will add another knockout to his resume. Two fan favorites meet in the co-main event as Rich Franklin and Forrest Griffin collide. The recently merged WEC will get to display a couple of their most popular fighters with “Cowboy” Cerrone, Miguel Torres, and the drastically improving Chad Mendes all making their UFC debuts. Whoa, almost forget about the scrapper that I’m most looking forward to: Ryan Bader versus Jon “Bones” Jones. Both of these fighters have looked awesome in their recent bouts and have very bright futures. Bader is a power house with great wrestling and “Bones” is so unorthodox you never know what is coming. This should be a barn burner. I can’t wait. Here’s who I see leaving victorious and enjoy the fights everyone.

Belfort def. Silva by TKO
Franklin def. Griffin by TKO
Jones def. Bader by submission
Ellenberger def. Rocha by unanimous decision
Torres def. Banuelos by choke
Mendes def. Omigawa by unanimous decision
Yamamoto def. Johnson by TKO
Cerrone def. Kelly by choke
Pierce def. Robertson by KO
Taylor def. Ruediger by choke
