As I said, you won’t see any more full-fledged fight prediction posts from me, but here are the ones on which I’m inclined to stick out my neck.

Brock Lesnar v. Alistair Overeem

Look for experience to play a factor. Overeem is better at defending the takedown than Brock is at defending the punch to the face. That is, the first time Lesnar shoots, Overeem might escape, but the first time Lesnar is hit, Overeem will overwhelm him. (Lesnar is a sink for knowledge, and he usually corrects his errors from one fight to the next. However, he didn’t correct this one between his fights with Carwin and Velasquez. I’ll believe it when I see it.)

Overeem by 1st-round KO/TKO

Donald Cerrone v. Nate Diaz

I’m sick of picking against Cerrone and losing. He looks like the real deal to me.

Cerrone by decision

Jon Fitch v. Johny Hendricks: Fitch by boring Hendricks to death
Dong Hyun Kim v. Sean Pierson: Kim by British-fighters-are-still-being-overpromoted
Nam Phan v. Jim Hettes: Phan by Hettes-hasn’t-proved-anything-yet
Jacob Volkmann v. Efrain Escudero: Volkmann by a new submission he titles, the “Obamanator”
Manny Gamburyan v. Diego Nunes: Gamburyan by I-don’t-pick-against-Judo-EVER
