With tonight's UFC Fight Night for the Troops II nearly upon us, I thought I'd post my calls. I am bummed that the Riddle/Brown fight was scrapped when Matt Riddle hurt his hand in training. There was a Twitter campaign to have Dana White call Ben "Killa B" Saunders back to the big show to take on Brown but the Keyboard Corps were unable to sway Dana White's mind so there's one less fight on the card.
The calls below are not complete as the first three fights feature fighters who I've had very, very little exposure to and any prediction would be shooting in the dark. I've also not entered any of these picks into the UFC's Fantasy Game since the system has been badly broken for a while now, I'm just not going to waste the time until they get it fixed up.
Anyway, on with the picks!
Melvin Guillard vs. Evan Dunham
Prediction: Dunham by TKO in Rd. 3
Mark Hominick vs. George Roop
Prediction: Roop by TKO in Rd. 2
Tim Hague vs. Matt Mitrione
Prediction: Mitrione by Unanimous Decision
Pat Barry vs. Joey Beltran
Prediction: Barry by TKO in Rd. 1
Cole Miller vs. Matt Wiman
Prediction: Miller by Unanimous Decision
Mike Guymon vs. DaMarques Johnson
Prediction: Guymon by Submission in Rd. 3
Yves Edwards vs. Cody McKenzie
Prediction: Edwards by Unanimous Decision
Fight of the Night: Dunham/Guillard
Knockout of the Night: Barry
Submission of the Night: Guymon
So there ya go. We'll see how I do later on, seems like its been a little while since there have been any fights on, I'm just looking forward to seeing some action!
What are your calls?
