Ufc 143


Recommended Posts

Ufc 143 in Las Vegas has some cracking fights on the card, Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit battle for the interim welterweight title in what could be fight of the night. I'm in too many minds over this one, I think Diaz will jab/box his way to a points decision but Condit can Ko people and Diaz does leave himself open a lot, maybe small stakes on both may be the way to go. Roy Nelson is up against Fabricio Werdum in a battle of 2 BJJ standouts (had the pleasure of meeting Werdum at the ADCC in Nottingham last year), I'm hoping it's a better fight than when he fought Overeem, he may want to prove a point after that one. He has good muay thai and good striking, Nelson may struggle with Werdums 5 inch reach advantage and he's a very hard man to put away (Overeem never had him in trouble), and Nelson is tough to finish standing (JDS Couldn't do it) and unless Nelson connects like he did against Sturve it's going to be long night for him. Would love to see Werdum submit him but that would be very hard against someone as good as Nelson on the ground. Going down the points road on this one for Werdum. Josh Koscheck is back against Mike Pierce, 2 fighters with a wrestling background with Koscheck having the slight advantage there but Pierce has a good ground game and is very durable, he won't mind being on the ground with Koscheck, his gnp is very good and that's what he'll want to ustilise. I know Pierce is the outsider here but think he can cause an upset. Nick Diaz to win on points 11/4 @ Skybet Carlos Condit to win by Tko/Ko stoppage 9/2 @ Skybet Fabricio Werdum to on points 15/8 @ Skybet Mike Pierce to win 21/10 @ Skybet
