Nate Diaz headlines this mid-week card
Nate Diaz headlines this mid-week card

Last weekend was not especially kind to me. In fact I think it was probably the worst weekend I have had since I started doing this. On top of all that, my boy Monson lost. Anyways look for a full recap with the rest of the weekend picks on Friday. Until then check out the picks for tonight’s Fight Night.

Nate Diaz (10-4) vs. Melvin Guillard (22-7-2)
Everyone in MMA thinks that focusing on an aspect of the game will lead to improvement. While this argument is logical, it is not proven through history. Melvin Guillard is one of those guys, who no matter how much he tries will not pick up the submission game. At some point, this fight will end up on the ground and Diaz will win by submission.
Pick = Nate Diaz

Thales Leites on the right track for title fight with Anderson Silva

On April 18 Thales Leites (14-1) will attempt to do what no one else in the UFC has been able to do. He will try to upset UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva (23-4) from his throne. Leites is on an impressive five-fight win streak with his most recent victory coming at UFC 90 when he quickly submitted Drew McFedries in round one.

Silva who is arguably the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world has destroyed everyone the UFC has thrown at him, hardly even losing a round in the process.

Travis Lutter also showed us that taking Silva down and putting him on his back seems to be his most vulnerable position.
