UFC 143 Free Pick & Preview

The UFC heads back to Las Vegas for UFC 143: Diaz vs. Condit, airing this Saturday night on Pay-per-view. The winner of the main event becomes the UFC interim welterweight champion, while Georges St. Pierre heals from a torn ACL.

This card also features Roy Nelson vs. Fabricio Werdum. I’ve seen Nelson anywhere from -110 to +110 and I think either one of them is a steal. Werdum has said he will either knockout Nelson or get KO’d by him. He’s not knocking out Roy Nelson.

Even if Werdum doesn’t opt for that gameplan, I don’t expect a different outcome. Nelson is a high-level ground fighter and it’s doubtful Werdum can submit him. With Nelson being light years ahead of Werdum in striking, the easy choice here is Nelson.

Here’s the extended video preview of UFC 143, and we’ll have more free picks later this week.

Michael Bisping Flips Off Crowd at UFC Weigh-ins

Michael Bisping just can’t help himself — he has to antagonize fans and fighters. Maybe it helps him focus. Maybe he just didn’t appreciate all the boos. Maybe he’s just, as the British say, a ‘wanker’.

Bisping bounced out on stage at the Chicago Theatre to weigh-in for his UFC on Fox fight with Chael Sonnen. As the crowd booed, Bisping had a double-barreled response for them.

Both he and Sonnen have talked plenty of trash leading up to this bout, and thankfully it’s time to actually do battle in the Octagon.
