Steve’s UFC 108 Predictions

Another great UFC event is only a few shorts days away taking place at the MGM Grand in “Sin City” to kick off the new year on January 2nd. I haven’t a clue as to why some folks around the net are saying that this card is weak, but I see a card loaded with amazing and talented fighters – probably the best card in the last 3 events in my personal opinion. Anyway I’ll get more into that later – let’s just cut to the chase here. On to my personal picks for UFC 108 Evans VS Silva:

    first visit to the site, wow those were some terrible picks. 1 for 5 on the main. yvel, really? its a new decade, but the last one yvel could have beat cigano in was the 90s.

      really you thought they were terrible picks?! granted yes most of them were wrong. However I think before the event kicked off they seemed like probable outcomes…But after watching some of the fights I think for the most part, my wrong picks were upsets. The main event could have gone either way – I was thinking after Evans vicious KO from Machida he wouldn’t come back 100% but he looked amazing – however if Silva wasn’t playing around in that 3rd round when he had him rocked he could have ended the fight…making me right.

      Yvel – for me I have watched Yvel for a long time and thought he was going to put Santos away before he could take it to the ground. I did not expect Santos to KO Yvel. Nor did I expect Yvel to be so sloppy with his hands. So ya I can see your point there – but I still thought Yvel was the better more complete fighter before hand…

      Lauzon’s loss I think was a total upset! and I would pick him again if there was to be a rematch.

      But it was still a great event and yes my worst outcome of picks to date but 6 out of 10 isn’t to awful – and I was 100% until the Dos Santos fight then it all went down hill from there. My previous ones however have been pretty dead on. Thanks for Commenting Michael. Would love to hear your picks for future events.
