UFC 161: Jimmy’s Last-Minute Predictions

UFC 161 PredictionsI don’t like this card. Here’s what I think will happen:

Main Card:
Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson, Heavyweights
Rashad Evans is just too quick for Hendo. However, I don’t see him knocking the veteran out.
Winner: Rashad Evans, Decision

Stipe Miocic vs. Roy Nelson, Heavyweights
I like Miocic, but I’m a Big Country fan all day long. It going to be a bad night for Miocic.
Winner: Roy Nelson, KO
Nelson’s final fight for the UFC?

Ryan Jimmo vs. Igor Pokrajac, Lilght Heavyweights
Say goodnight, Jimmo.
Winner: Igor Pokriac, Submission

Alexis Davis vs. Rosi Sexton, Bantamweights
I like both of these fighters. I like Sexton a little more.
Winner: Rosi Sexton, Submission

Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan
I do not want this fight to exist. I like both these guys, so I’m really hoping for a twisted ankle on the walk out for one of them. But if the fight goes down, I can’t see a path that doesn’t lead to victory for…
Winner: Pat Barry, KO

FX Prelims
Jake Shields vs. Tyron Woodley
Jake Shields isn’t fast enough with his submissions to strike before Woodley connects.
Winner: Tyron Woodley, KO

James Krause vs. Sam Stout
I like both of these guys. But I’m OK with this fight. I think Stout continues his comeback from the devastating loss of his trainer/brother in law.
Winner: Sam Stout, Decision

Sean Pierson vs. Kenny Robertson
Another good match-up. Should be exciting.
Winner: Sean Pierson, Decision

Roland Delorme vs. Edwin Figueroa
Could the prelims be better than the PPV? Yes. Yes it could, and this fight will set the tone for a great night of fights.
Winner: Edwin Figueroa, TKO (Strikes)

So there you have it. My picks. (Disclaimer: You probably shouldn’t place wagers based on my predictions. Seriously. Haha)

I’m off to the viewing party… food and drink awaits!
