Saturday's UFC on FOX 12: Lawler vs Brown - My Picks and Shots in the Dark Gambling Enabler

In semi-under-the-rader-news, Gilbert "Durinho" Burns makes his UFC debut, which is awesome.
I'll be refereeing and hopefully competing at purple belt featherweight Saturday, then watching the fights while I work my side job downtown.

I've got Robbie Lawler by TKO in a tough 4th round stoppage. I see him just finding a way to win over 5 rounds against a come to him style fighter like Matt Brown. Brown is hittable and Lawler puts people away if he can find them, and Matt Brown has the style that will not make him hard to find.

Weight issues notwithstanding (I've made quite a few jokes in the past), Anthony Johnson is getting hittable opponent who seems well-rounded but will likely play into Rumble's strengths in his UFC return/re-debut. Johnson will violently punish Lil Nog like he stole from him.

I hope Bermudez puts a stop to the Clay Guida hug-fest-train-hold-on-style and sends him out of the UFC.
Josh Thomson will get stoppage win in the 2nd round.
Masvidal will finish Cruickshank.
Kingsbury will look dominant over Patrick Cummins who looked god awful against Dan Cormier.
Tim Means will obliterate the guy he's fighting in a violent stoppage win in the first or second round.
Gilbert Burns will take down and finish his opponent in the second round.
