UFC 137 picks

Donald Cerrone vs. Dennis Siver – Cerrone continues to impress though Siver is no pushover. I still think Cerrone wins this by decision.

Jeff Curran vs. Scott Jorgensen – Jorgensen 

Hatsu Hioki vs. George Roop – Roop.

Mirko Filipovic vs. Roy Nelson – Big Country lost some weight, he weighed in in full clothes and a fat suit and still came in 8 pounds lighter than his last fight. So I’d guess he shaved at least 20 pounds off his frame since the Frank Mir fight. I think Cro Crop is done and is retiring after this fight no matter what. I’m picking Roy by decision.

 Cheick Kongo vs. Matt Mitrione – I buy into the Mitrione hype, he looks leaps and bounds better every fight. I think he wind via TKO, possibly early in the 2nd.

Nick Diaz vs. B.J. Penn – No surprise here but I’m picking Penn, he has fought better competition over his career and been more dominant. I don’t see where Nick hold a significant advantage against Penn. Also, they got a bit into it during the weigh-ins and whenever Penn is angry, that’s when he’s at his best. I hope he’s mumbling to himself during his walk out tomorrow.
