UFC 96: A night of many stories

Despite what many called a lackluster main event between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Keith “The Dean of Mean” Jardine, UFC 96 proved to be a night of many story lines, and a night of finishes, with 7 of the 10 bouts ending by either KO or TKO.

It was supposed to be one sided and it was predicted to be over within a couple of minutes of the first round. It turned into a back and forth battle between former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Quinton “Rampage” Jackson, and the upset specialist Keith Jardine.

Jardine survived the first minute of the fight, and several big shots from Jackson, and used his “herky-jerky” style to slow down “Rampage” at times, in addition to using his leg kicks that he is famous for. In the end it was not enough, but Jardine once again proved his gameness and toughness pushing the fight to the judges. Jackson used his patented left hook to put an exclamation point on the fight, dropping Jardine at the bell in the final round.

UFC 96: JACKSON vs. JARDINE takes place tonight, March 7, in Columbus, Ohio. We have collected the predictions for each fight from the PRO MMA (promma.info) staff elders. Check them out and then share with us your thoughts on who looks like they know what they are talking about and which staff member may be way off in left field with their pick (be nice). Here are the ‘PRO MMA STAFF PICKS’ for UFC 96:

Aaron Riley (27-10-1, 1-2 UFC) vs. Shane Nelson (11-3, 1-0 UFC)
DENNY: Riley brings in a ton of experience with numerous organizations including more than one stint with the UFC. Nelson is TUF 8 veteran, but will be over matched in this fight. Riley by decision.
EDDIE: Riley. Definitely too experienced and will put Nelson away. 1rd TKO.
MATT: Aaron Riley out pointing Nelson on the feet for a Unanimous Decision Victory.
JACK: Due to Aaron Riley’s experience and having been in there with so many top fighters, I have to go with him as the winner. Nelson has only fought outside Hawaii one time in his whole career, he has never really fought anyone with a name, and this will be a huge stage and experience for him that could also affect his nerves.
