Nate Diaz took it to Gray Maynard right from the beginning of the fight until his hand was raised in victory. Even though I lost my bet I was impressed by the show Nate put on that night.
The fight ended with 2:22 left on the clock in the very first round with Diaz scoring an impressive TKO victory.
The winner, who was off by quite a bit because nobody picked Diaz to win the fight in the first round is Steve Timmons. Regardless, Steve who made his pick on my facebook page was close enough to win the contest:
Steve wins the entire MMA QuickStart Training Program which includes over 18 1-hour workouts, 100+ instructional videos, 12 Follow Along MP3 “Shadowfighting” Audio Files and more. Congrats Steve!

I though Dan showed great toughness and recovery skills by getting back to his feet even though he had been severely rocked by strikes. Vitor Belfort couldn’t have timed that final kick more perfectly though. Ouch!
The fight ended with 3:43 left on the clock in the very first round.
The winner, who was off by only 8 seconds from the actual time the fight ended, made his pick on my face book page:
Matt wins the entire MMA QuickStart Training Program which includes over 18 1-hour workouts, 100+ instructional videos, 12 Follow Along MP3 “Shadowfighting” Audio Files and more. Congrats Matt!
Here’s an interview I did with ProMMANow’s John Buhl breaking down the UFC 127 fights between Jon Fitch/BJ Penn and Spencer Fisher/Ross Pearson.

I’m very excited about the title match between Vitor Belfort & Anderson Silva. I really hope Belfort comes out of that fight as the new UFC middleweight champion of the world. It comes down to the fact that I just don’t enjoy watching Silva fight as much anymore.
Anyway make your picks below (and please keep them in the same list order to make my job of calculating the winner much easier) and if you choose the most correct winners you win!
To make things more fun let’s do something special.
If Silva retains his belt, the pick’em winner will get any one of my MMA instructional workshops ($30 Value) and if Vitor Belfort is victorious then the pick’em winner will receive my complete MMA QuickStart MMA Training Program ($97 value).
Make your picks as comments on this post. Good luck!
Here’s a video with my thoughts on the main card fights:
and here’s the full fight card for you to make your picks from:
Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort
Forrest Griffin vs. Rich Franklin
Ryan Bader vs. Jon Jones
Jake Ellenberger vs. Carlos Eduardo Rocha
Miguel Torres vs. Antonio Banuelos
Donald Cerrone vs. Paul Kelly
Chad Mendes vs. Michihiro Omigawa
Gabe Ruediger vs. Paul Taylor
Demetrious Johnson vs. Norifumi “KID” Yamamoto
Mike Pierce vs. Kenny Robertson
Kyle Kingsbury vs. Ricardo Romero
I”m definitely looking forward to UFC 117 although I think these two headliner fights could play out in one of two different ways: Action packed from start to finish or uneventful and boring depending on how the fighters approach it.
I”m hoping that Chael Sonnen wins the belt that night by finishing Anderson Silva. What I definitely don”t want to see is Silva dancing around the cage for twenty minutes waving his arms in the air and doing his shake and bake stuff pretending to want to attack. Hopefully for the fans, he”ll be out in good form and fight hard for the entire fight.
With the Fitch/Alves, ideally we”ll see some good ground work by Fitch and some slick striking online casino by Alves throughout in a match that ends by either KO or submission. Both guys are tough competitors and will without a doubt be ready to fight hard all three rounds.
I”m picking Sonnen and Fitch to win. Who you going with?
Here”s the promo vid for the card…
The results were very close however the top spot was shared by three people all of who picked 9 of 11 winners correctly! Great job guys. I’ve decided to give you each a free video workshop instead of just the first to get their picks in.
If you’re one of the following three winners, I’ll be sending you an email very soon to find out which workshop you would like.
Next UFC I’ll be having another contest so get your picks ready!
Thought I’d ad a little more excitement to an already great night of fights happening this weekend at UFC 113.
If anyone can pick all 11 winners correctly I’ll give them free access to any one of the video workshops (your choice) found in my premium content shop. It doesn’t matter how each of your picks gets the victory as long as they win.
