I love FREE fights! UFC is back on FX tonight. We finally get to see the 125ers in action! It’s the beginning of the flyweight tournament to crown the UFC’s first flyweight champ. It’s also the debut for top flyweights Ian “Uncle Creepy” Mccall and Yasuhiro Urushitani. The main event has great potential. Alves vs. Kampmann is sure to be a back and forth brawl! This card looks to be a solid one and I’m excited for a night of great fights. Here are my quick picks for UFC on FX: Alves vs. Kampmann.
Court Mcgee vs. Constantinos Philippou:
I see Court taking this one to the ground and grinding out Constaninos to a Decision. Mcgee via Decision.
Demetrious “Mighty Mouse” Johnson vs. Ian “Uncle Creepy” Mccall:
This is my pick for fight of the night. We already know what Mighty Mouse can do at 35 in the UFC. Now we get to see him at his natural weight class. Mccall is no joke as well. He’s a tough guy and really can beat you in a lot of ways. I see this fight going to the additional round and see Demetrious Johnson winning via Split Decision. Even after the sudden death round I see this one being a toss up.
Joseph Benavidez vs. Yasuhiro Urushitani:
This fight will not go for very long. Benavidez has too much power and I’m curious to see how much faster he can possibly be at 125. He already was a top guy at 135, I’m thinking he dominates this fight and does the same in the final. Benavidez via KO round 2.
Tiago Alves vs. Martin Kampmann:
I see this as being a pretty entertaining back and forth battle. I see Kampmann connecting on more of the shots but see Alves landing the bigger strikes. I want to say Alves takes this match by KO but I think Kampmann avoids the KO shot and takes Alves down. As they go deeper into the fight I see Kampmann keeping Alves on the ground and eventually submitting him. Kampmann via submission round 5.
