Here is the preview video for UFC Live: Cruz vs. Johnson, followed by our free picks for the main card.

Matt Wiman -215 vs. Mac Danzig +175
Danzig may be the more technical fighter, but Wiman is faster and stronger. Danzig is looking to avenge his UFC 115 loss to Wiman, and is coming off an impressive KO of Joe Stevenson. Even so, I still like Wiman. Take Wiman -215.

Anthony Johnson -205 vs. Charlie Brenneman +165

“The Spainiard” has won 2 straight, including a very impressive performance against Rick Story. But Johnson has sick power and speed to boot. I don’t like this matchup in any way for Brenneman. I think that if goes the distance he’s in trouble, and if doesn’t Johnson will likely win by KO. Take Johnson -205.

Pat Barry -200 vs. Stefan Struve +165
This has the makings for “Fight of the Night”, and I can only assume someone is getting KO’d or choked out. So which fighter will go down or tap? Barry has said he loses better than anyone and Struve acknowledges his ‘stupid mistakes’. I think getting inside on Struve will be hard for Barry, if Struve has learned anything from his fights with Travis Browne, Roy Nelson and even Paul Buentello. He needs to work the jab and use his reach to keep Barry at bay. He’ll do it and he’ll KO Barry in the process. Take Struve +165.

Dominick Cruz -525 vs. Demetrious Johnson +325

I don’t see this as being remotely close. Cruz has outstanding takedown defense, better striking and the reach to pepper Johnson with shots all 5 rounds long. Cruz wins easily, let’s just hope he makes it exciting in the process. Take Cruz -525.
