MAIN CARD

Michael Bisping (19-3): -230
Yoshihiro Akiyama (13-2-2): +180

Bisping has gone 2-2 in his last four fights but is a machine on home soil. Akiyama is a Judo Black Belt and veteran all around fighter. Both of these fighters need a good showing to put themselves on the Middleweight map. Both have good stand up but I think that it will be Akiyama’s quickness and ability to take the fight to the ground where Bisping is a fish out of water. Pick: Yoshihiro Akiyama +180

Dan Hardy (23-7-1): -175
Carlos Condit (25-5): +145

This has Fight of the Night written all over it. Both of these men love to stand and bang but only one has a polished ground game. Dan Hardy is a rather one dimensional fighter who trains in what is best described as a C+ gym while Condit trains in what is regarded as the best gym on the planet. Condit’s all around game and superior training will prevail in this one. Pick: Carlos Condit +145

John Hathaway (14-0): -500
Mike Pyle (20-7-1): +350

Undefeated John Hathaway takes on seasoned submission specialist Mike Pyle in Lightweight action. Hathaway, a former rugby player possesses incredible quickness, power and cardio while Pyle has experience and technical knowhow on his side. Pyle is a handful but has had trouble with strong strikers in the past. Hathaway is a young, energetic striker that showed just how tough he is in his dominant win over Diego Sanchez. Pick: John Hathaway -500

Cheick Kongo (24-6-1): -200
Travis Browne (10-0): +160

If you like striking then this is the fight to watch. Two huge heavyweights do battle to earn a little respect in the stacked Heavyweight division. Kongo is a very experienced, athletic kick boxer that has been inconsistent of late. Browne is a relative newcomer who stand 6’7”, has power and a decent all around game. Browne’s size could be his undoing in this fight – easy to take down. Kongo will look for the take down and unleash his vicious ground and pound to stop the fight. Pick: Cheik Kongo -200

James Wilks (7-3): +140
Claude Patrick (12-1): -170

James Wilkes is yet another Brit whose most impressive win came in the finale of The Ultimate Fighter 9. Since the show, he’s been inconsistent and many question his endurance and his ability to put it all together inside the Octagon. Patrick is a veteran grappler who hasn’t lost a fight in eight years! He is a rugged, well conditioned grappler who is a nightmare to handle. Pick: Claude Patrick -170 Sports Betting at Sportsbook.com

PRELIMINARY CARD

Cyrille Diabate (16-6-1): -105
Alexander Gustafsson (9-1): -125

In a Light Heavyweight fight, two strikers do battle to close the preliminary card. Diabate is a technical striker whose best work is done as a striking coach while Gustafsson is a power striker who has fought and lost to some pretty tough dudes (Phil Davis). Diabate has the experience and the smarts to outlast Gustafsson in this fight. Pick: Cyrille Diabate -105

Vinicius Quieroz (5-1): -170
Rob Broughton (14-5-1): +140

Tall Heavyweight Vinicius Quieroz makes his UFC debut on Saturday against well rounded Rob Broughton. Both fighters are currently riding four fight win streaks. Quieroz’s training at Chute Box Academy in Brazil will have prepared him well and his height and reach advantage should be enough for him to prevail. Pick: Vinicius Quieroz -170

Stanislav Nedkov (11-0): +135
Steve Cantwell (7-3): -165

Bulgarian bully Stanislav Nedkov takes on UFC veteran Steve Cantwell as part of the Preliminary card at UFC 120. Nedkov is a no-nonsense, straight ahead bull with a decent ground game. Cantwell serves as a step up in competition for Nedkov, but a long layoff may hurt Cantwell in this fight. Pick: Stanislav Nedkov +135

Spencer Fisher (23-6): -240
Kurt Warburton (6-1): +190

UFC veteran Spencer Fisher takes on UFC newcomer Kurt Warburton in Lightweight action. Not a whole lot is known about Warburton except for the fact he is riding a two fight win streak and that he holds a victory over Ross Pearson. Fisher will not be happy to be down on the Preliminary Card and will be out to prove something to the UFC brass. Pick: Spencer Fisher -240

James McSweeney (4-5): +200
Fabio Maldonado (17-3): -260

James McSweeney is possibly the only UFC Fighter with a losing record. That’s enough for me! Pick: Fabio Maldonado -260

Paul Sass (10-0): -210
Mark Holst (8-2): +165

Undefeated Lightweight Paul Sass puts his undefeated record on the line against well rounded Mark Holst. Sass is a crafty fighter and has won seven out of ten fights by triangle choke. I guess he’s quite good at that submission move! Pick: Paul Sass -210
