Today’s pro pick em’s will be on the Main card of UFC 149 and the guest picker today will be Raymond Blodget (7-1) and fights out of Legacy Fights in Houston, Texas. The only loss of his career was to current UFC’er Daniel Pineda.
Bantamweight: Urijah Faber vs Renan Barao
Ray- Renan Barao, he is Jose Aldo’s training partner and fights like Jose. I think he will be the next champ.
FNM- Faber, he wants Dominic and will gird out a decision against Barao
Middleweight: Hector Lombard vs Tim Boetsch
Ray- Hector Lombard, he is more explosive/athletic, more experience/higher skill level
FNM- Boetsch, he is undefeated at Middleweight and has good wrestling to go with a good chin
Heavyweight: Cheick Kongo vs Shawn Jordan
Ray- Shawn Jordan, this fight reminds me of Cheick Kongo vs Cain Velasquez. I think it will play similarly with Shawn controlling the fight.
FNM- We agree with Ray, Jordan is a great athlete but Kongo has fought athlete’s before, I think he out lasts Knogo in a 3 round war.
Welterweight: Brian Ebersole vs James Head
Ray- Brian Ebersole, I haven’t seen James fight yet. Based on Brian’s experience and unorthodox style, I think he wins.
FNM- Ebersole too, Head is well rounded, but he has not seen everything that a crafty vet like Ebersole can toss out at him.
Welterweight: Chris Clements vs Matt Riddle
Ray- Chris Clements, I haven’t seen either guy fight based on their records and a hunch.
FNM- Clements, we are going with the only Canadian on the main card hometown love for double CC
Keep an eye out for Ray he is an up and comer. He has held the Legacy Lightweight belt, before it was taken away by Daniel Pindea. He just recently was handed a 3 round split decision win which he wasn’t really happy in his performance. You can bet the next guy he will face, will take on a better Ray as he keeps growing in this sport have Ray on your ray-dar
