UFC 99 The Comeback: Preview And Picks

ufc99Total Pro Sports-  Many people are looking past this UFC to the upcoming UFC 100, but I think this will be a solid card.  The main event match between Rich Franklin and Wanderlei Silva should be a slug-fest and whenever Cheick Kongo fights you know someone is going to get knocked out.  Here is how we think this card could play out.

Rich Franklin Vs. Wanderlei Silva– Catch weight 195lbs

I think that Franklin will have the upper hand in this fight thanks to coaching he received from UFC Middleweight Champion  I think that this will give him the edge that he needs because Anderson and Wanderlei were long-time training partners.

Result: Franklin winner by 2nd KO.

Cheick Kongo Vs.  Cain Velasquez – Heavyweight

Kongo has looked like a beast in has last couple of fights and Velasquez is undefeated.  I don’t think this will be a long fight as Velasquez will look to end it early.  Kongo took this fight on short notice because Heath Herring is injured and that should be the difference in this one.

Result: Velasquez 1st round KO.

Mike Swick Vs. Ben Saunders – Middleweight

Result: Swick 3rd round sumission.

Marcus Davis Vs. Dan Hardy – Middleweight

Result: Hardy decision.

Spencer Fisher Vs. Caol Uno – Welterweight

Result: Fisher submission.

Mirko Cro Cop Vs. Mostapha Al Turk – Heavyweight

Result: Cro Cop  1st round KO.
