UFC 133: Revenge of the Stupidity (Stupid Predictions™)

Posted: August 1, 2011 in MMA

Once again, it’s time for the madness. This is what’s going to happen on Saturday night. I’ll add Jason Probst’s picks when they’re available on Sherdog.

Rashad Evans vs. Tito Ortiz

For reasons I can’t explain, I’m very happy Tito has saved his job as a fighter, but it was just one fight. As much as I hate to admit this . . .

Rashad by boring decision.

Vitor Belfort vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama

Akiyama’s thing is judo, which means throws and submissions. Chris Leben’s thing is haymakers. Leben submitted Akiyama by triangle choke. Ummmm . . .


Chad Mendes vs. Rani Yahya

Mendes is undefeated. Rani’s last fight was a win over a solid opponent, but . . .


Johny Hendricks vs. Mike Pierce

Tough call but . . .


Mike Thomas Brown vs. Nam Phan

I’m interviewing Nam Phan tonight. I’m afraid to pick against him.

Nam Phan

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Matt Hamill

Matt Hamill

Jorge Rivera vs. Constantinos Philippou

I think Jorge is being handed an easy opponent as payback for his loss to a cheating Bisping. He still might blow it, as he should have been released a long time ago, but . . .

Jorge Rivera

Mike Pyle vs. Rory MacDonald

Rory’s one loss was 7 seconds before a clear win. Mike Pyle is no slouch, but . . .

Rory MacDonald

Dennis Hallman vs. Brian Ebersole

Brian Ebersole is weird, but so far he makes the most of it.

Ivan Menjivar vs. Nick Pace

Nick Pace

Rafael Natal vs. Paul Bradley
