Posts Tagged ‘Lesnar vs Carwin’

Just to think years ago the UFC Heavyweight division was a joke Tim Sylvia was at the top of the division and having boring fights with people like Jeff Monson but now thanks to fighters like Lesnar, Carwin, Mir and Velasquez the division has never been hotter and UFC 116 has the biggest match of them all for the heavyweight title

Brock Lesnar vs Shane Carwin (Heavyweight title fight)In each of their fights you would have no problem picking a winner as you would favor Lesnar or Carwin over who ever the other was facing and now that they face each other the biggest question will be asked in that which of these men is the better fighter as they are both for sure the real deal but when you have two forces like this crashing against each other one is going down you have to think Brock would be ever so slightly favored in the match just for the fact that Carwin has not really been tested in his MMA career as all of Carwin’s 12 bouts have ended in the first round by KO so you would even with someone that has the power that Lesnar has might want to take the match to the ground and try to ground and pound his way to a win, I think the first round will be a feeling out of each other as Carwin as not faced anyone with Lesnar’s power and the same goes for Lesnar so I don’t see Carwin trying to steamroll over Brock to start the fight I can see them feeling each other out for the first round and I think Lesnar will win in Round 3 by TKO

Yoshihiro Akiyama vs Chris Leben
– Leben took this fight on such short notice that he just had a match at the TUF finals I was looking forward to seeing Silva fight but this still should be intresting as Akiyama wanted a bigger name, So I hope this fuels Leben to go in there and try for the KO but I think having two fights in such a short time may work against Chris and it was a surprise to me that they allowed Leben to take this fight so I think Akiyama will win just for the fact he should be the fresher man and it should happen in Round 2 by Submission

Matt Brown vs Chris Lytle –
‘Lights Out’ Lytle has had 50 matchs so far and I think this experience will be the deciding factor in the match but I dont see a KO or submission but I think he will win by decision but I don’t see this as an easy win I think Brown will win one round and them to have a close round that will favor Lytle

Stephan Bonnar vs Krzysztof Soszynski
– In a rematch from there UFC 110 match which was stopped by Doctor Stoppage thanks to an inadvertent headbutt the UFC has let these two men face each other again, the previous fight was in the third round when it ended but I think this will be different as the second fight is rarely the same as the first but I think Bonnar will win by Round 2 – TKO

Kurt Pellegrino vs George Sotiropoulos –
Sotiropoulos has 6 wins coming into tonight fight and I think he will win by submission in round 1 it’s not that I think Pellegrino is bad or anything but I think Sotiropoulos has some momentum going for him
