Lots of MMA action this weekend. I've got my choices highlighted bolded in red.
In the Minor leagues we have Bellator 81 with the following match-ups:
Rich Clementi vs. Marcin Held - crafty veteran with underrated wrestling gets it done, perhaps with a submission
In the Majors we have the UFC 154, eh? With ze Canadien GSP vs Carlos "normally I'm aggressive and try to finish fights" Condit:
MAIN CARD (Pay-per-view, 10 p.m. ET)
- Champ Georges St-Pierre vs. interim champ Carlos Condit (welterweight-title unification)
- Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann
Tom Lawlor vs. Francis Carmont
Lawlor has blown each one of his big stage opportunities in recent memory that I can recall. He'll do the same thing here, get overzealous, blow his load, and then get caught.
- Constantinos Philippou vs. Nick Ring
- Mark Hominick vs. Pablo Garza
- Patrick Cote vs. Alessio Sakara
- Cyrille Diabate vs. Chad Griggs
John Makdessi vs. Sam Stout
- Stout by better stand-up and sharper striking via Decision
Mark Bocek vs. Rafael dos Anjos
PRELIMINARY CARD (Facebook, 6 p.m. ET)
- Antonio Carvalho vs. Rodrigo Damm
- John Maguire vs. Matt Riddle
- Azamat Gashimov vs. Ivan Menjivar
- Darren Elkins vs. Steven Siler
