Free UFC 210 Video Fight Cormier Johnson Preview
The main event at UFC 210 features a rematch, Daniel Cormier vs Anthony Johnson 2.  Judges for this fight can take a bathroom break because they will not be needed!  This fight will not go the distance. Their first fight was a fan favorite that almost ended in the first round.  Daniel Cormier was able to survive and then turned the tide.  Will Daniel Cormier be able to win again?  Or, will Anthony Johnson plug the holes in his game and become the new UFC light heavyweight champion? Let’s take a closer look at these two MMA fighters and then I’ll make my official Chingasos MMA fight pick for UFC 210: Daniel Cormier vs. Anthony Johnson. 

Daniel Cormier is a horrible trash talker.  When he talks trash trying to hype a fight, it’s not scary and or intimidating.  You almost just want to give the guy a hug.  While he’s not a good trash talker, he is a great MMA fighter.  Daniel Cormier is coming into this UFC light heavyweight title defense with an overall MMA record of 18-1.  The only smudge on his record is a decision loss to the undefeated and legendary Jon Jones.  

Daniel Cormier is a grinder.  He’s an MMA zombie that takes the best other fighters have to offer and keeps coming forward.  He outworks other fighters and eventually breaks most of them.  His wrestling resume is top notch, and his stand up seems to get better and better.  He uses his stand up and chingasos to set up his wrestling grind and ground and pound.  The first fight with Anthony Johnson was a perfect example.  His stand up was good enough to hang with a beast of a striker. He then was able to work his wrestling and outworked Johnson eventually setting up the submission finish.  

Anthony Johnson comes in to this rematch on a 3 fight winning streak.  Not only has he won three in a row, he’s knocked out every one of those fighters.  Two in the first round, and the other only made it to the 2nd round.  Anthony Johnson has an overall MMA record of 22-5. He’s finished 16 of those fights have with a KO/TKO.  Also, he’s 12-1 in the last 13 with that only loss coming to Daniel Cormier.  

Anthony Johnson is a fight finisher.  Since he settled into the UFC light heavyweight division, he’s become one of the scariest MMA fighters alive.  His power is Mike Tyson-esque. One chingaso can end your night!  He almost finished off Daniel Cormier in their first fight and in the first round. A strategic mistake caused him to go into deep waters with Cormier and it exposes a weakness in Johnson’s game.  

Daniel Cormier was able to weather the storm in the first fight. In this fight, look for Anthony Johnson delivering power shots in more strategic spurts.  Daniel Cormier has to fight a perfect fight to weather the storm again.  One mistake can cost him big, especially now that Johnson knows not to hastily empty the gas tank.  

Sooner or later, Johnson will land a shot and will more intelligently find a path to finish.  This will be the first time ever Daniel Cormier will be finished.  Look for the finish within the first 3 rounds.

UFC 209: Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thompson 2 Fight Pick & Preview

It ended in a draw!  Yup! The first fight ,Tyrone Woodley vs Stephen Thompson ended in a draw.  It was like watching a great movie with a shitty ending.  But today, the UFC is putting Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson back in the cage to settle the score!  Let’s take a closer look at these two fighters and then I’ll make my fight pick for Tyron Woodley vs Stephen Thompson 2. 

Tyron Woodley is coming into this UFC title defense with an overall MMA record of 16-3. Woodley was riding a three fight winning streak before the epic draw with Thompson.  Woodley is one of, if not the most explosive fighter in the UFC. He can finish and he can finish fast!  He has 6 KO/TKO’s on his record including the devastating first round KO of former champion Robbie Lawler. He also has 5 submission on his record which puts his fight finishing percentage at an impressive 69%.

Stephen Thompson has an overall MMA record of 13-1. His only loss was a decision way back in 2012 to Matt Brown.  Thompson has defeated some of the best in the UFC as he climbed his way up to a title shot.  Thompson really put  himself on the map with wins over Rory McDonald, Johnny Hendricks and Robert Whittaker. Like Woodley, Thompson can finish!  He has 7 KO/TKO’s and 1 submission sprinkled in on his resume.  His overall finishing percentage is just under Woodley’s at 62%.

Woodley has the edge both in wrestling and boxing but Thompson can kick like no other in the UFC.  They’ve tested the waters in the first fight.  Tonight, it will be about who comes in with the better game plan.  

Look for Woodley to be more aggressive.  He seemed to have held back a bit in the first meeting.  Maybe it was nerves, maybe a gas tank running low?  It was his first title defense and the pressure was on.  With that first title defense out of the way, and having tested the waters with Thompson, aggressiveness is going to be key in the rematch.  

Look for Thompson to find a way to release more kicks.  In the first meeting, the takedown danger caused Thompson to hold them back.  Thompson also struggled when he was taken down.  Finding a way to get back up if he does get taken down is going to be key.  

I’m picking Woodley for the win!  He had opportunities to finish in the first fight and made strategical errors.  Those errors will be fixed.  Woodley will be more aggressive with his wrestling which will open up opportunities to land brain shaking chingasos.  Thompson did enough to survive and win a couple of rounds in the first fight.  Doing enough to survive won’t get him the win.  Woodley will walk out of the UFC octagon win the belt once again!

UFC 208: Holly Holm vs. Germaine de Randamie Fight Pick & Preview

Free UFC 208 Fight Video Holly Holm Germaine de Randamie
UFC 208 is going to make history!  One, it’s the first women’s fight at 145 lbs.  Two, it’s also a title fight.  Three, the fight is featuring one fighter who is 1-2 in the last three fights, and the other who is 2-1 in her last 3 fights. This is not exactly a UFC PPV main even quality fight, and the lack of buzz around it amongst both hard core and casual MMA fans shows it.  With that being said, if you like chingasos, they will definitely be flying around!  These ladies can throw bones! Let’s take a closer look at these fighters and then I’ll make my fight pick for UFC 208: Holly Holm vs Germaine de Randamie.  One woman will come out the first UFC 145 lbs champ ever! 

Germaine de Randamie is coming into this UFC fight with an overall MMA record of 6-3.  It’s important to mention that while she’s only had 9 MMA fights, she’s an accomplished Muay Thai fighter and has won several championships. But, this is MMA and while here record isn’t impressive, she is 3-1 in her last 4 fights with that only loss coming to Amanda Nuñes.  

Holly Holm has the more impressive MMA record coming into this fight at 10-2.  But, she’s lost her last two fights.  Holly Holm, like Germaine de Randamie has had an impressive combat sport career outside of MMA and the UFC in Boxing and Kick Boxing.  While Holly Holm is coming off of two loses, make no mistake about it, she’s a great striker and has some solid wins under her belt including but not limited to the Ronda Rousey KO.

Many casual MMA fans are most likely not interested in watching Holly Holm vs. Germain de Randamie, but, this is one of those MMA fights that can turn someone into an MMA fan.  There’s going to be some high level striking.  There’s going to be some high level strategy.  Both these ladies have been in the UFC and are highly experienced.  

These fighter match up very well.  It should be a close fight.  The difference is going to come down to who’s faster and more athletic.  I give that edge to Germaine De Randamie.  Look for Randamie to win the chingasos exchanges.  Not by much, but one extra punch, kick, knee or elbow in every skirmish will add up.  Ultimately, you’re going to see Germaine de Randamie walk out of the UFC Octagon with the 145 lbs.
