UFC Ultimate Fight Night 25- Ellenberger vs. Shields full fight card and video predictions

This Ultimate Fight Night (or UFN: The 2 Jakes as I’m calling it) is filled with tough match ups, real tough match ups. Shields/Ellenberger (I saw Ellenberger at Reign Training Center last week, he’s looking ready to win) McGee/Yang, basically the whole Main Card and most of the FB card. This should turn out to be a solid card with exciting finishes (now that I’ve said that and jinxed it, there will be 12 decisions). As usual, here are my pics for the card as well as our new feature, video predictions for those who don’t like to read. Now with background music. Give me your predictions in the comments section. As usual, My predictions are in green, Enjoy.

Main Card

Welterweight bout: United States Jake Shields vs. United States Jake Ellenberger

Jake Shields is in a tough spot, coming off a loss to GSP, losing his father in the last few weeks, all the drama at his gym with Nick Diaz…the list probably goes on an on. Ellenberger is in a decidedly better position, coming off a KO victory over Sean Pierson at UFC 129 in April, he’s not facing any of the emotional pressure’s as Shields. For that reason I’m leaning toward Ellenberger, yet, Shields is fighting for his father’s memory and to erase the stink of his loss to GSP. Who to pick? Despite Shields desire to win for his dad, I feel Ellenberger will press the action and keep it standing, which as we’ve seen isn’t Shields best place. Still I’m gonna go with Shields for the win.

Middleweight bout: United States Court McGee vs. South Korea Dongi Yang

Court McGee is a toough competitor, as seen by his fight with Ryan Jensen. Comeing back from a strong shot to the chin and finding a way to land the Arm-Triangle. Dongi Yang is from Korean Top Team with the Korean Zombie (Tri-Coasta.com) making his return to the Octagon™ after a TKO win over Rob Kimmons. Almost all of Yang’s wins have come by TKO (9 of 10) and he’s faced stiffer competition which is why I’m going with Dongi Yang for the win by TKO. 

Featherweight bout: United States Jonathan Brookins vs. United States Erik Koch
 
Jonathan Brookins is the season 12 Ultimate Fighter winner. He’s been gone since that fight in April due to injury. This will also be his return to featherweight. Erik Koch is a Roufusport product last seen delivering a KO head-kick to Rafael Assuncao. This is a tough fight for both of these fighters, due to Brookins injury and layoff, I’m giving this fight to Erik Koch.

Middleweight bout: United States Alan Belcher vs. Canada Jason MacDonald

Alan Belcher is coming off of a long lay off due to issues with his eye. He had a few surgeries and looks to be fully recovered. This fight looks like a gimme fight on paper for the talented Belcher. However MacDonald is fresh, having fought recently, and has lots of experience. His record is littered with losses to the upper echelon of the division, which leads me to believe that if Alan is on his game, and in top form, he will easily dispatch MacDonald. Alan Belcher for the win 

Preliminary Card (Facebook)

  • Lightweight bout: United States Cody McKenzie vs. Brazil Vagner Rocha

    This was a tough fight to call, Cody McKenzie was by all rights a 1 trick pony, a seriously talented 1 trick pony.Yet, his weakness was exposed. However, according to his twitter and his training timeline, Cody has been actively stepping up his game, because of this I think he will be ready for anything Vagner Rocha has to offer. I’m calling 
    Cody McKenzie for the win.
