Georges St. Pierre vs. Matt Hughes

Round 1

St. Pierre controls the fight by not allowing Matt Hughes take him down to the canvas. St. Pierre lands some good punches and low kicks early in the first round. In the middle of the round the action stops to warn St. Pierre of low blows. St. Pierre stuffs Matt Hughes’s shoots and lands a huge superman punch, that drops Hughes to the canvas. If St. Pierre had some more time he would of finished Hughes.

Round 2

St. Pierre sweeps up Hughes with a lower leg kick. Then GSP lands an big kick to the head, which stuns and drops Hughes. He attacked the stuned Hughes on the ground with punches and elbows till the referee stops the fight.

St. Pierre TKO’s Matt Hughes at 1:25 of the second round.

Man! I was shocked how one sided this fight was. Georges St. Pierre has definitely improved since there last fight. He played the fight perfectly and stayed away from Matt Hughes “Ground and Pound”. I am still amazed that Matt Hughes the unbeatable man lost.

Matt Hughes vs. Georges St. Pierre

This long awaited fight between the UFC’s top two contenders is here. This Saturday Georges St. Pierre will get his title fight against Matt Hughes. GSP has been waiting for a long time for his rematch, but an injury forced him to back out of UFC 63 and give BJ Penn a chance at Hughes. I think GSP has a great shot at Hughes if he can avoid those hard take downs and the submission. Hughes needs to dominate his opponents. As we seen in there first match GSP was doing good until he was submitted. Both these fighter have great records and are at there peak. I was a little surprised at the Poll results. Normally Matt Hughes wins the polls hands down. This poll GSP is the clear winner.

I am going with Georges St. Pierre by split decision.

Tim Sylvia vs. Jeff Monson

The heavyweight championship fight is between Tim Silvia and Jeff Monson. This fight brings one of the tallest stand-up fighter in the UFC against one of the shortest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu fighters in the UFC. Monson is one of my favorite fighters to watch. He is so explosive and always does some submission that is rarely used in competition. After all he is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu blackbelt and Abu Dhabi Grappling champion. This is going to be a one sided fight. If Silvia can stay on his feet and use his reach, he will dominate and probably KO Monson. If Monson can take Silvia down, Monson will quickly finish Silvia on the ground.

I have it Monson by Submission in the second round.

Brandon Vera vs. Frank Mir

Frank Mir the former heavyweight champions against Brandon Vera. Mir was once a dominating force in the UFC, beating now heavyweight champion Tim Silvia. Brandon Vera is one of those fighters that is often overlooked. He has a strong 7-0 record and a well rounded fighting style.

I have it Vera by KO in the first round.

Alessio Sakara vs. Drew McFedries

I have it Alessio Sakara by decision over Drew McFedries.

Joe Stevenson vs. Dokonjonosuke Mishima

I have it Joe Stevenson by submission over Dokonjonosuke Mishima in the second round.

A Look Ahead: UFC Fight Night 7

UFC Fight Night 7

Another Fight Night is just around the corner pinning undefeated Diego Sanchez versus the explosive Joe Riggs. This has all of the makings for a very exciting fight as both match up very well and are two of the most intense fighters in the Welterweight division. It will be interesting to see how much Diego has improved his stand-up since training with the De La Hoya camp. Riggs is coming off a 2-2 record this past year with quick submission losses to Mike Swick and Matt Hughes. A win over Diego would definitely give him the fast track to another title shot. Diego will look to capitalize on Riggs weakness to submission and take his place at the front of the line to fight for the UFC Welterweight Belt.

Karo Parisyan is back from his toothless loss to Diego Sanchez in Fight Night 6. He faces a tough opponent in the cocky Drew Fickett. The Judo champ is looking for a strong comeback against the well-rounded and athletic Fickett.

Hereâ“‚¬“„¢s the card for the December 13th event:

Welterweight: Diego Sanchez vs. Joe Riggs
Welterweight: Drew Fickett vs. Karo Parisyan
Middleweight: Marcus Davis vs. Shonie Carter
Middleweight Alan Belcher vs. Jorge Santiago
Middleweight: Dave Menne vs. Luigi Fioravanti
