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.

Fight Forecast – WEC 43, Warrior-1, Raging Wolf, RIE, MMA Xplosion and DEEP 44 Picks

The Tapout Cowboy hat is back

In MMA there are just some crazy weeks. First off, as far as my picking record goes, Mike Easton’s win over Chase Beebe has been changed to a No Contest. I was tempted to give myself the win since that decision was so ridiculous.

Other crazy stuff happened last week too. Butterbean lost to Harry Funmaker. Minowa submitted Hong Man Choi. These travesties led to my 17-8 (1NC) record last week. Overall I am now 107-32 (14NC). For those that care, my picking rate is now 77 percent.

This weekend there is WEC 43, but so much more. Yves Edwards is in action. Carlos Newton is fighting Shonie Carter for some reason, and Yusuke Kawaguchi puts his Megaton strap on the line in DEEP.
