Regular readers know I loves me some Shawn Jordan, any alumni of USAMMA gets love from me, and Jordan is no different. I am still a big fan of Napao, even though he cost the world the Randy/Cro-Cop match we didn’t know we wanted. I don’t expect much of this fight, I think it could be a long slow plodding fight, until then end when either man goes down hard and brings the fight fans running from the concession stand to watch the replay. Problem is the posturing could be in round 1, 3, 7, 21, 187th round. Lets hope Shawn makes it happen early.
Gilbert Melendez vs Diego Sanchez
I just don’t see how Diego wins this one. I actually think he might be better at 170
He’s not a title contender, or even top 5 at either weight class, but at 170 he can push the pace and be a solid PPV gatekeeper, and has the wrestling to keep
Can DC FINISH Roy on the ground? Lets see, Barnett, Mir- No. How is Roy’s grappling compared to theirs? Close?
Can Roy Submit DC if DC gets cocky/Lazy/Bored/Tired? Absolutely. Roy isn’t afraid of anyone or anything, and DC isn’t faced anyone like that since Barnett, who broke bones early in that fight. Mir Crumbles under heavy pressure- and DC was unable to do that.
Would I bet a happy meal on it? All Day
Junior Dos Sanchez vs Cain Velasquez
I still don’t see JDS stopping every takedown, and to be honest, I agree that Cain might not have the power to drop JDS unless its a pound out on the ground. I think JDS can threaten on the bottom, but I wonder if the pace that Cain puts up, can anyone really do anything against him on the ground? Much as I’d love to see JDS repeat part 1 of thios trilogy, I think part II is FAR more likely, even though I will pulling for JDS.
