Fight Forecast – Ultimate Glory, Pure Combat, Fight Festival and Jungle Fight Picks

Yes, it is Overeem in Strikeforce
Yes, it is Overeem in Strikeforce

All four of my missed picks last week came on the WEC card. I picked Cerrone, and I had him winning on my card. Also I failed to predict the awesomeness of Mackens Semerzier. However, I still went 13-4 (1NC). Overall my record now stands at 120-56 (15NC). My picking rate stayed steady at 77 percent.

This week, there is not a big weekend headlining show, but there is still good MMA. Ultimate Glory will do something Strikeforce can’t and get Alistair Overeem to fight. Also former WEC champion Doug Marshall will be looking for his trademark “knock dead.” If that does not satiate your MMA appetite, Sean Salmon is back in action against Japanese journeyman Yuki Sasaki.

Allan Weickert defeated Sean Salmon by armbar submission. Salmon says he threw the fight.

UFC veteran Sean Salmon (16-8) has some nerve. It takes a certain kind of person to come on one of the sport’s top websites and admit to throwing a fight.

From all appearances, that is what happened on Wed., Sept. 2, 2009, in Salmon’s column entitled “Full-Time Fighter.”

The fight in question was against Allan Weickert (6-6), and took place on June 6, 2009 at “NAAFS – Fight Nite in the Flats 5” at the Plain Dealer Pavilion in Cleveland, Ohio.
