Interview Travis Lutter: Not Making The Same Mistakes
Georges St-Pierre vs. Matt Serra
Bodog: -500 GSP, +300 Serra
BetUS: -500 GSP, +350 Serra
CT Pick: GSP takes it by TKO. No Bet, theirs a good chance Serra has GSP’s card.
Rich Franklin vs. Travis Lutter
Bodog: -350 Franklin, +250 Lutter
BetUS: -400 Franklin, +300 Lutter
Franklin has better stand up and can defend the takedown. Franklin is a 7:2 favorite to win, I don’t think so, more like 2:1. Lutter is no slouch, if he can get Franklin on the ground, theirs a good chance of an upset.
CT Pick: Franklin by TKO.
Michael Bisping vs. Charles McCarthy
Bodog: -330 Bisping, +260 McCarthy
BetUS: -300 Bisping, +230 McCarthy
Bisping looked shitty in his last two fights, we will have to see how he adjusts to the drop in weight. McCarthy hasn’t fought in a year and a half, I don’t see him taking this fight.
CT Pick: Bisping TKO/KO first round. To many untested factors, No Bet
Nate Quarry vs. Kalib Starnes
Bodog: -295 Quarry, +235 Starnes
BetUS: -280 Quarry, +200 Starnes
Nate Quarry looked bad in his last fight with Pete Sell, he took punishment for two and a half rounds before securing the third round KO. Starns has only lost twice in his career, one to a tough Yushin Okami and the other to Alan Belcher by TKO – Cut (gaping hole). If Starns can avoid the KO and impose his underestimated ground game, the night might be short for Nate Quarry.
CT Pick: My money and my pick go to Starns by Submission.
Mac Danzig vs. Mark Bocek
Bodog: -550 Danzig, +350 Bocek
BetUS: -500 Danzig, +350 Bocek
Bocek’s only loss is to Frankie Edgar by TKO at UFC 73. He has amazing ground skills, but lacks the well roundedness that Mac Danzing has.
CT Pick: Mac Danzig by TKO in the first. No bet, to much risk to little reward.
