UFC 203: Stipe Miocic vs Alistair Overeem Fight Pick & Preview

UFC 203 free fight video stipe miocic alistair overeem The heavyweight division in the UFC has been extremely unstable, you just never know what’s going to happen in the cage. Always expect the unexpected when the biggest guys in MMA step into the octagon and start throwing chingasos! As of now, hard hitting Stipe Miocic has the UFC heavyweight belt, but, will he hold on to it?  Alistair Overeem is a combat sport veteran, champion, and he’s looking to top of his great career as the UFC heavyweight champion.  Let’s take a closer look at these fighters and then I’ll make my fight pick for UFC 203: Stipe Miocic vs Alistair Overeem.  

Alistair Overeem is an MMA veteran with an overall MMA record of 44-14.  He’s also a kickboxing champion and has translated those striking skills over to MMA very well.  He’s won his last 4 UFC fights and 3 of those have been finished via KO or TKO.  But, he’s also been busted for PED’s (performance enhancing drugs).  He served a suspension in 2012 and upon his return he lost his next two fights.  Although, he seems to have bounced back, it’s hard to tell how he’ll do versus a champion without the help of PED’s.  

Stipe Miocic is coming into this title defense with an overall record of 15-2. He’s a finisher! Miocic has finishes off his opponents in 15 of those wins.  Eleven by the way of KO/TKO and one by submission (leg kick).  Miocic has a strong wrestling base and he uses that to stay standing and unleash powerful chingasos! What’s even scarier about Miocic is that he seems to be getting better!  

Look for Overeem to do well early in the fight, with or without PED’s, his stand up skills are unquestionably some of the best in the game.  But, without PED’s, as the fight drags on, Miocic will prove to have a better gas tank and will take advantage of openings as Overeem begins to fatigue. Miocic will land hard shots, and sooner or later, Overeem will collapse.

This fight will not go past the third round, and Stipe Miocic will be looking for another opponent to fight in defense of his UFC heavyweight title!

UFC 202: Nate Diaz vs. Conor McGregor Fight Pick & Preview

Yes folks! After some weird drama that postponed this fight. It's finally going down, the biggest non title rematch in UFC history. Conor McGregor will step into the UFC octagon at UFC 202 in an attempt to avenge the loss to Nate Diaz. If this fight is half as good as the first matchup, the fans will be satisfied. The first fight was a chingasosfest that culminated with some text book Chingajitsu! Will this fight end differently? Let's take a closer look at these fighters and as always, I will make my fight pick for UFC 202.

Conor McGregor is the undisputed king of trash talking.  It’s entertaining and many times extremely comical.  He's gotten to the throne not just by talking, but by backing up his talk, at least most of the time.  Conor McGregor comes into UFC 202 with an overall record of 19-3.  He’s finishes 17 of those via KO/TKO.  McGregor can finish fights! 

McGregor was was undefeated in the UFC until he went up to the 170 lbs division to face Nate Diaz.  At 145 lbs, McGregor is dominant.  At that weight, he’s as fast as anyone, but stronger and carries more power than most.  His wrestling and grappling ability is as good as it needs to be to keep the fight standing.  When it’s time to stand and bang, he can do it with the best.  Even in his loss, he stood there and traded like a warrior.  Unfortunately for him, Nate Diaz can take a punch and deliver them just as well.  

Nate Diaz is a fighter.  A fighter that happens to have MMA skills! He’s willing to fight anyone at anytime.  Keep in mind, he took the first Conor McGregor fight on 10 days notice.  He’s 19-10 in overall.  He’s racked up 12 submission wins and 4 KO/TKO victories.  Diaz is willing to stand and bang with anyone, most of the time it pays off.  Sometimes, fighters are smart and athletic enough to hit and run. Those fighters have beat him via decision victories.  

Nate Diaz has one of the best chins in MMA.  He’s been in the UFC almost 10 years and has only suffered one loss via KO.  That KO was from a head kick back in 2013 in the Josh Thompson fight.  Since then, his boxing skills have improved and his ground game has always been one of the best in MMA.  He showed both those skills in the first fight with McGregor.  Conor McGregor felt the wrath of the Stockton slap and then submitted to a rear naked choke. Now, Conor McGregor has brought in a southpaw boxer into his training camp.  Will that change the outcome? 

Both fighters will be better prepared.  Nate Diaz has gone through a full training camp.  Conor McGregor has trained specifically for Nate Diaz.  This fight will come down to the game plan.  For Conor McGregor to win, he has to use leg kicks and movement.  He has to hit and run.  He also needs to pace himself.  

Nate Diaz needs to cut off the Octagon and force McGregor to engage.  He also needs to watch for the takedown as McGregor might look for it in hopes to win rounds with the wet blanket strategy.  That strategy of getting a takedown and then just playing defense and smothering an opponent.  

Look for this fight to start slower than the first.  McGregor will be a lot more cautious and will attempt to conserve energy.  The fight will begin to warm up late in the second and really get going in the third round.  At this point, the length of Diaz and the “Stockton Slap” will become a bigger and bigger hurdle for McGregor to get over.  I doubt McGregor will be happy winning by landing leg kicks and running around the cage, so he will have to open up, and this will just get him in trouble.  

I see Nate Diaz winning in the late rounds by ground and pound as his gas tank will outshine McGregor’s and the fight will end up on the ground.

UFC 201: Robbie Lawler vs. Tyron Woodley Fight Pick & Preview

UFC 201 hasn’t been getting much attention, and, rightfully so.  It’s not a great fight card and the main event isn’t sparking the interests of the casual fan.  Robbie Lawler is the welterweight champion but Tyron Woodley is going attempt to change that.  Let’s take a closer look at these fighters and then I’ll make my UFC 201 main even fight pick.  

Robbie Lawler comes into UFC 201 with a five fight winning streak.  He’s an MMA veteran with an overall record of 27-10 and will probably go down in UFC history one of the hardest hitting MMA fighters ever!  If KO power is his main weapon, the best takedown defense in the game is his shield.  Add a chin of stone to that mix and you have a predictable, yet unstoppable combination.  Robbie Lawler fights tend to resemble a game of Rock ‘em Sock ‘em Robots and it’s usually he who delivers most of the rockin’ and sockin’!  Can Tyron Woodley withstand the storm and take the belt away? 

Tyron Woodley is 15-3 in his MMA career.  He’s 4-1 in his last five with the only loss coming to Rory McDonald who gave Robbie Lawler a tough fight but eventually lost the Rock’ em Sock ‘em battle in the fifth round.  Tyron Woodley has some great athletic ability and is an excellent wrestler.  He can stand and deliver some hard chingasos as well which has made him a force in the division.

This fight is as predictable as it comes.  Robbie Lawler is going want to keep the fight standing.  Tyron Woodley’s best chance is to take the fight to the mat.  Unfortunately for Woodley, Lawler’s takedown defense is just too good and that’s not going to happen.  

This fight is going stay on the feet and will become a battle of the chins and gas tank.  Lawler is better in both categories.  Look for the fight to start slow, and then haymakers will rain down from both men.  Woodley will attempt takedown but will pay the price and take punishment for each and every attempt.  Eventually Woodley will begin to gas and Lawler will land more and more power shots.  This fight will most likely end in the fourth round by KO/TKO and Robbie Lawler will walk out of the cage with another title defense on his resume! 

Who are you picking for the win?
