UFC 97: REDEMPTION – PRO MMA staff picks

Once again the PRO MMA (promma.info) elders make their predictions. The event is UFC 97: REDEMPTION going down this Saturday night, April 18th in Montreal, Canada. The headliner is a UFC Middleweight Title fight between Champion Anderson Silva and Thales Leites. 

Take a look at our predictions, see if you agree or disagree, and let us know why. Submit your picks as well.

Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites
Denny Hodge: I don’t think Leites is going to be successful at getting the champ to the ground, to show us his world class ground game. Silva by TKO in Round 2.
Jeff Howard: Silva over Leites-I think Leites has a chance, if he can get Silva down. With that said, Leites’ chin is like glass and he will get crushed trying to take Anderson down.
Eddie Constantine: Silva by TKO RD2 – Silva should be able to overpower Leites, wearing him out as Thales attempts to take Anderson down tiring him out in the process.
Jack Bratcher: Silva wins in round one via (T)KO (strikes) because he can.

Houston Alexander vs. Eric Schafer (LHW)
Houston really needs a good showing this fight. It would be nice to see him get out of round one. It would also be nice to see him put on a good performance for his home crowd here in Omaha, Nebraska. The crowd goes nuts for Houston.
Rd.1 – Houston comes out like a hurricane. Big knees to the head of Schafer as he tries for a takedown. Schafer goes for a takedown again. Houston with a couple of leg kicks. Schafer wants none of the stand up. Clinched. Knees from Houston. Schafer shoots again. Finally he gets Alexander down and moves to side control. Houston is caught in the crucifix but Houston gets up then gets caught in a guillotine. He pops out but now gets mounted. Schafer in full mount. Eating elbows. Alexander taking a ton of punishment. Schafer wins by arm triangle with one fucking second left. One fucking second. Very sad for Alexander’s hometown crowd. Schafer dedicates his win to Evan Tanner, his hero.
