UFC 122: MARQUARDT VS OKAMI

MAIN CARD

Middleweight No. 1 Contender Bout

NATE “THE GREAT” MARQUARDT
(-210) = projected 66% chance of winning = $2.10 bet wins $1

YUSHIN “THUNDER” OKAMI
(+190) = projected 34% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $1.90

NATE MARQUARDT: 30-9 (9-3 UFC) – Weight: 186

YUSHIN OKAMI: 25-5 (9-2 UFC) – Weight: 185

Average Madness Level (1-10): 7.2

MMAMADMAN – (8) This fight will determine the new 185-pound number one contender, assuming there isn’t some sort of controversial finish when Anderson Silva defends the UFC Middleweight Championship against Vitor Belfort at UFC 126, and assuming Chael Sonnen doesn’t beat his steroid rap at his appeal hearing in December. Nate Marquardt has already fought for the middleweight strap once, losing to Anderson Silva at UFC 73, and Yushin Okami is the only fighter currently on the UFC roster who holds a win over Silva, albeit a disqualification win, but a win nonetheless, so Okami definitely presents the fresher match-up should Silva retain against Belfort. It’s possible we could see Okami utilize a gameplan similar to how Chael Sonnen beat Marquardt. Okami has been training with Sonnen for this fight. I’m banking on Marquardt having learned his lesson against Sonnen, and coming into this fight more prepared to fend of Okami’s wrestling. Marquardt by Unanimous Decision

MAT PARÉ – (7) I have said it before, I'll say it again, only wrestlers have a shot at beating Anderson Silva. Strikers get KO'd, Jiu Jitsu guys lie on their backs and wait, wrestlers take Silva down and keep him there for 23 minutes... That being said, being the top notch wrestler Okami is, he has to win this fight and be No. 1 contender. Don't forget he is the last man to beat Silva, granted it was a stupid DQ, but still a win. I am crossing my fingers Yushin does what Sonnen did to Marquardt, or else Anderson's gonna get another walk in the park after he's done smashing Belfort. It is in the best interest for everyone that Okami takes this fight. He hasn't been knocked out in 7 years and we've seen Marquardt on his back for 3 rounds before. Okami by Decision (+208)

EVIL ERIC – (7) A real tough fight to call and Okami is quite capable of pulling the upset, but Nate the Great will do enough while standing to earn the hard fought decision and a shot at the Middleweight Championship. Marquardt by Split Decision

JOSH KING – (7) Marquardt is the more well-rounded fighter. Okami has the advantage in only wrestling. I don't think that will be enough. Marquardt with a TKO blitz in the 2nd

JOHNNY NGUYEN – (7) Gonna be awesome to see how each guy is going to react to the other guy’s style. I like both guys, but I’m gonna go with Okami by Decision

MICHAEL ALMEIDA – (7) Although Yushin is the only respectable Asian in the UFC, he won't be able to handle the Greg Jackson inspiration. I hate Nate "not so great" however he will squeak out a win. Could potentially be a draw. Marquardt by Unanimous Decision

EVIL ERIC VS MAT PARÉ: MFC 27 Preview - Predictions with Analysis and Madness Levels for 11/12/10 in Edmonton


by Eric Van Den Haas and Mat Paré

MAXIMUM FIGHTING CHAMPIONSHIPS 27: BREAKING POINT will be held Friday November 12, 2010 at the River Cree Resort and Casino in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card will air live on HDNet starting at 10:00 PM EST.

Madness Levels indicate the amount of insanity inspired in anticipation of a fight on a scale of 1 to 10, a numerical translation of just how excited we are for each fight.
____________________________________________

MFC 27: BREAKING POINT

{WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT}

DOUGLAS "THE PHENOM" LIMA
(-250) = projected 67% chance of winning = $2.50 bet wins $1

JESSE JUAREZ
(+190) = projected 33% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $1.90

DOUGLAS LIMA: 16-4 – Weight: 168.8

JESSE JUAREZ: 15-5 – Weight: 169.2

Average Madness Level (1-10): 6.5

EVIL ERIC – (7) Lima's jits against the power of Juarez. I expect The Phenom to prevail with another slick submission. Douglas Lima by Submission in Round 3

MAT PARÉ – (6) I bet on Ford when he fought Lima at MFC 26 and got killed, lesson learned, so irony should be that I bet Lima this time and he loses, but his Jiu Jitsu is just too crazy. Jesse Juarez is sporting a very impressive 9 fight win streak but has 4 submission losses to his name, number 5 tonight. Douglas Lima by Submission Round 2
____________________________________________

Welterweight Bout

RYAN "THE REAL DEAL" FORD
(-275) = projected 70% chance of winning = $2.75 bet wins $1

PETE "SECRET WEAPON" SPRATT
(+215) = projected 30% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $2.15

RYAN FORD: 12-3 – Weight: 170.6

PETE SPRATT: 21-18 – Weight: 170

Average Madness Level (1-10): 6

EVIL ERIC – (7) The long-awaited rematch arrives! It won't be as controversial as the first but it should play out much the same. The Real Deal is much stronger and simply a better overall fighter. Ryan Ford by Submission in Round 2...again

MAT PARÉ – (5) No brainer here, Spratt got submitted the first time around, expect the exact same again. No analysis needed, just look at facts and stats; Spratt has 18 losses, 16 of which are submissions, Ford has 12 wins, 6 of which are submissions. Spratt won't be the first to TKO Ford, has no means of submitting and no possible way of grinding out a decision. Enough said. Ryan Ford by Submission Round 2 (yes, exactly like their 1st fight)
____________________________________________

Light Heavyweight Bout

DAVID HEATH
(-140) = projected 55% chance of winning = $1.40 bet wins $1

RODNEY "SHO NUFF THE MASTER" WALLACE
(+110) = projected 45% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $1.10

DAVID HEATH: 16-6 – Weight: 203.4

RODNEY WALLACE: 9-3 – Weight: 203.4

Average Madness Level (1-10): 5

EVIL ERIC – (6) I hate backing fill-ins even if it is Sho Nuff The Master in his first fight since his UFC release. It'd be hard to go against Heath, coming off the incredible KO via Superman punch in MFC 26. David Heath by TKO in Round 3

MAT PARÉ – (4) Slugfest galore! This should be fun much like Heath's last outing versus Solomon Hutcherson, except Wallace is very durable and I would be quite surprised if Heath puts him away. That being said, I would also be suprised if Rodney won, Heath is coming off 3 wins and Wallace 3 losses. Don't count Rodney out but don't bet him either! David Heath by Decision (with a tiny chance of a TKO)
____________________________________________

Light Heavyweight Bout

RAZAK "RAZOR" AL-HASSAN
(-195) = projected 63% chance of winning = $1.95 bet wins $1

DWAYNE "D-BOMB" LEWIS
(+160) = projected 37% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $1.60

RAZAK AL-HASSAN: 11-2 – Weight: 202.4

DWAYNE LEWIS: 11-5 – Weight: 205

Average Madness Level (1-10): 5.5

EVIL ERIC – (8) Lewis will be looking to knock Al-Hassan's head off, but the crafty veteran will be able to elude the bombs and do enough on the ground to earn the decision. Razak Al-Hassan by Decision

MAT PARÉ – (3) Dwayne is one of the organization's poster boys who's been fighting with them since MFC 3. He's a solid striker with KO power who could very well be the first to knock out Al-Hassan. If he can effectively defend submission attempts and keep this standing as much as possible, he should be able to tag Razak hard enough to put him away, if not, hopefully he'll have enough in the tank to do it for 3 rounds. Well worth the risk at +160. Dwayne Lewis by TKO Round 2
____________________________________________

Lightweight Bout

RYAN "THE IRISH ASSASSIN" HEALY
(-250) = projected 67% chance of winning = $2.50 bet wins $1

"RAGIN" KAJAN JOHNSON
(+190) = projected 33% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $1.90

RYAN HEALY: 19-8 – Weight: 158.2

KAJAN JOHNSON: 17-11 – Weight: 155

Average Madness Level (1-10): 5

EVIL ERIC – (6) The Irish Assassin steps in to face Ragin' Kajan Johnson who'll be looking for a submission but will end up on the wrong end of a KO. Ryan Healy by TKO in Round 3

MAT PARÉ – (4) I am a big fan of Pat Healy and until today, had no clue he had a brother who also fights! Can't say I know much about either Kajan or Ryan, but Healy is on a 5 fight win streak and if he's anything like his bro, he's one hell of a fighter! If he keeps this standing he should win by TKO as he has never been submitted before and that's Kajan's forte. Ryan Healy by TKO (or Decision)
____________________________________________

Catchweight 175-Pound Bout

DHIEGO LIMA

BILL FRASER

DHIEGO LIMA: 3-0 – Weight: 173.4

BILL FRASER: 2-1 – Weight: 174.2

Average Madness Level (1-10): 3.5

EVIL ERIC – (5) Dhiego makes his MFC debut the same night his brother fights for the title and, like Douglas, I expect him to win via submission. Dhiego Lima by Submission in Round 2

MAT PARÉ – (2) So the Lima brothers are taking over the MFC hey? Fine by me, Lima by submision in round 1, any questions? Dhiego Lima by Submision in Round 1

This new hybrid preview article is intended to be a one-stop shop for all your WEC 52 analysis needs. This preview features all the pertinent stats – betting lines translated into projected chance of winning percentages and monetary ratios, MMA and WEC win-loss records, method of victory/loss breakdowns, official weigh-in results – as well as Sherdog Fight Finder links, Madness Levels, Roundtable discussion and Predictions for every single fight on the card!

You can find Mat Paré on Twitter as @The_Pinch and watch his YouTube music channel at Montreal Metal Shows. Mat’s thoughts on his MMAmadman debut:
I really would have wished for another card to make my first predictions for MMAmadman, as I am not that great at predicting the WEC…and Saturday's UFC 122 isn't gonna be an easy task either. Nonetheless, my humble opinion on WEC 52.
Welcome aboard, Mat! Joining him for this Insane Preview will be regulars – prediction specialist “Evil” Eric Van Den Haas and MMAmadman Randy Rowles.

Betting lines are for entertainment purposes only and are included here to illustrate bookmaker projections. A winning bet results in a return of your bet plus the amount won.

____________________________________________

WEC 52: FABER VS MIZUGAKI

MAIN CARD

Bantamweight Bout

URIJAH “THE CALIFORNIA KID” FABER
(-355) = projected 76% chance of winning = $3.55 bet wins $1

TAKEYA MIZUGAKI
(+295) = projected 24% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $2.95

URIJAH FABER: 23-4 (8-3 WEC) – Weight: 136

12 wins by Submission | 7 wins by TKO | 3 wins by Decision | 1 win by DQ

2 losses by Decision | 2 losses by TKO

TAKEYA MIZUGAKI: 13-4 (2-2 WEC) – Weight: 136

8 wins by Decision | 4 wins by (T)KO | 1 win by Submission

3 losses by Decision | 1 loss by TKO

Average Madness Level (1-10): 7

MAT PARÉ – (6) This is sort of a tune-up 'Lets see if he’s done or not' fight for Faber as he makes his bantamweight debut. Mizugaki is a decent worthy opponent, but I don't think anyone expects him to win this, he's sorta being fed to the wolves. Although Urijah has lost a lot of steam with the Mike Brown and especially Jose Aldo losses, I expect him to come out guns-a-blazing much like he did versus Raphael Assuncao. Kinda crossing my fingers Faber does great here and comes into the UFC as a real contender at 135. Faber by decision (hopefully a TKO or sub but unlikely)

EVIL ERIC – (7) It's hard to envision Faber losing his debut at 135 pounds. Mizugaki is a battler but The California Kid is faster, stronger, you name it. Faber will take it to the ground and go kamikaze on Mizugaki. Faber by TKO in Round 2

MMAMADMAN – (8) Urijah Faber will be making his bantamweight debut in the WEC before he makes his UFC debut in 2011, thanks to the recent WEC-UFC merger. The idea that Urijah Faber and Takeya Mizugaki will be fighting next in the UFC is awesome to an infinite degree. Both guys are really exciting fighters. There is potential here for a Fight of the Year candidate, let alone Fight of the Night. Faber has lost 3 out of his last 5 fights, and Mizugaki is 2-2 in his last 4, so this one peaks at an 8 on the Madness scale today, but a few years ago it would’ve been a 10. Faber by Unanimous Decision
____________________________________________

Featherweight Bout

CHAD “MONEY” MENDES
(-290) = projected 72% chance of winning = $2.90 bet wins $1

JAVIER “SHOWTIME” VAZQUEZ
(+245) = projected 28% chance of winning = $1 bet wins $2.45

CHAD MENDES: 8-0 (3-0 WEC) – Weight: 145.5

4 wins by Decision | 2 wins by Submission | 2 wins by (T)KO

UNDEFEATED

JAVIER VAZQUEZ: 15-4 (2-2 WEC) – Weight: 146

10 wins by Submission | 4 wins by Decision | 1 win by TKO

4 losses by Decision

Average Madness Level (1-10): 7.33

MAT PARÉ – (7) Very competitive solid fight here, should be a great wrestling match. I don't see Mendes losing this one, as he is undefeated, a top contender at 145, and hopefully will start being mentioned in the title picture after this fight. Mendes' Vazquez's losses are almost all split decisions. I would expect Mendes to control this fight and win it by unanimous decision. Wish there were prop odds for this one... Mendes by unanimous decision

EVIL ERIC – (7) Mendes will maintain ground control for the majority of the match - the question is "Can the opportunistic Vazquez catch him in a submission?" It's a real possibility but my Money is on Mendes. Mendes by Unanimous Decision

MMAMADMAN – (8) There’s been a lot more trashing talking leading up to this fight than I ever would’ve expected from these two. Hopefully, this is a sign of things to come for Chad Mendes, the WEC’s answer to Joe Warren. This is a classic match-up of an American wrestler versus a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighter. Vazquez will be looking to submit Mendes, while Mendes will try to use his wrestling to control the fight, and then pound the shit out of Vazquez whenever openings are presented, either on the ground or standing. There’s always the chance Vazquez could catch Mendes late, but I’m going with Mendes riding out any possible storms to capture a hard-fought decision victory. Mendes by Unanimous Decision

IFC: GENESIS RESULTS: Ricco Rodriguez, Jeff Monson and Frank Trigg Win in Israel Fighting Championship - 11/9/10

IFC: GENESIS was held Tuesday November 9, 2010 at the Nokia Arena in Tel Aviv, Israel. The main card aired live on Internet PPV.

In the main event, Ricco "Suave" Rodriguez won a unanimous decision over Daniel "The Gladiator" Tabera. Rodriguez was set to make his light heavyweight debut, however, he missed weight by an absurd 10 pounds. The Spaniard Tabera accepted the fight regardless, and Rodriguez was fined 20-percent of his purse. Rodriguez picked up the tainted victory, marred by a lack of sportsmanship that forced Tabera into a heavyweight fight.

In the co-main event, Jeff "The Snowman" Monson submitted an overmatched Sergey "Siberian" Shemetov in a heavyweight bout. Post-fight, Monson indicated he planned on moving down to light heavyweight and challenged Ricco Rodriguez to a rubber match at the new weight class.

Frank "Twinkle Toes" Trigg, coming off back-to-back losses in the UFC, beat up MMA rookie Roy "Popeye" Neeman to get back on the winning track. Meanwhile, former UFC fighter Hermes Franca is now on a 4-fight losing streak. Overall, Franca has lost 6 out of his last 7 fights. Franca has talked of retirement from MMA lately, and losing to 2-2 Moshe Kaitz illustrates why this might actually be a very good idea. Shonie "Mr. International" Carter did Franca even one better, and lost his fifth straight fight. Carter has now lost 7 out of his last 8 fights, this time losing a decision to the MMA-debuting Jeremy Knafo. After the fight, Carter told the Israeli crowd he was likely retiring from MMA.

Rameau Thierry "The African Assassin" Sokoudjou won a unanimous decision over veteran Lithuanian fighter Valdas Pocevicius. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Daniel Gracie returned to MMA action after a 4-year layoff and choked out Martin Wojcik.

X-1: ISLAND PRIDE RESULTS: Sang Soo Lee Wins Light Heavyweight Tournament, Kala Kolohe Hose Loses Again - 11/6/10

X-1: ISLAND PRIDE was held Saturday November 6, 2010 at the Neal S. Blaisdell Arena in Honolulu, Hawaii. The main card aired live on PPV.

Mexican Muay Thai specialist Edwin "Tigre" Aguilar scored his 17th career MMA knockout win with a TKO over Hawaii's own Kala "Kolohe" Hose, who lost his third straight fight. This victory marked the first time Aguilar has put together back-to-back wins since mid-2008. Hose hasn't won a fight at all since August 2008.

The co-main event featured the finals of X-1's 205-pound tournament. South Korean Sang Soo Lee became the inaugural X-1 Light Heavyweight Champion with a unanimous decision win over Poai Suganuma. Lee disposed of Daniel Madrid and top Cesar Gracie prospect Roy Boughton before capturing the tournament crown over EliteXC veteran Suganuma.

2004 Olympic boxing alternate and Leland Chapman (Dog the Bounty Hunter's son) training partner Van Oscar Penovaroff scored a quick KO win over David Barrios. Max "Lil Evil" Holloway won gold in his MMA debut, capturing the Hawaii State Lightweight Championship with a TKO win over veteran fighter Bryson "The Kid" Kamaka. Hawaii's new featherweight champion is Dustin Kimura, who remained unbeaten with a unanimous decision victory over Sadhu Bott, who suffered his first career loss.
