UFC 156, my predictions

Edgar vs Aldo: Aldo with great TD defense blah blah, dude will get molested on the ground. Frankie will take him down, no question about it. Look at how easy he took down BJ Penn and Gray Maynard, these guys has much better wrestling with better TDD than Aldo. I'm excited about this fight, a super fight for me. TKO for Edgar.

Evans vs Nog: Evans has to be the most athletic and fit LHW I've seen. Extremely durable and well rounded, if he can't finish Nog he will sure outlast and outscore him. But my money is he probably will get a finish. Nog is so slow, if you take a long look at his recent fights, you'll see how slow he is. KO for Evans.

Overeem vs Big Foot: Both are excellent scrapper, but Overeem has a bit more horsepower, Big foot has more cardio, this is a beat them up fight. For this 3 rds fight, I think Reem will end up doing more damage and win with a decision.

Fitch vs Maia: A grinder meet a BJJ specialist, risky for both. But we know Fitch is a very durable fighter with Iron will, no easy task submitting this guy. Fitch will do what he always does, and Maia will have a hard time finding a good angle to sub. Maia's standup improved by leaps and bounds, but we know this is a ground war. Decision win for Fitch.

    All sound good to me. I wouldn't be surprised if Big Foot somehow gets a TD and pounds Overeems face into the canvas, but if Overeem can keep it standing he is much more diverse and technical than Silva. That one is the only real toss up for me.

    Good predictions. I have the same idea except for Overeem fight . It will be a one or two rounds fight winning by overeem.( One round if juiced two if not)
    It is not about win or lose, it is about heart. Leave all you have in the Octagon and you are a winner in my book.

    I have Aldo, Overeem and Evans. Fitch vs Maia is the real toss up fight for me, Fitch has that grinding style and could tire Maia out to take a UD but Maia is one of the best grapplers in the world he could definitely submit Fitch if he makes a mistake.

    I think if aldo doesn't finish edgar within first 3 rds, edgar wins decision. Aldo's cardio worries me, especially the pace edgar uses.
