UFC 69 – Shootout - Fight Card @ Toyota Center in Houston, Texas on April 7. Please note that this card is subject to change at any time but here is what the UFC has put together for us at the moment. UFC 68 Fight Card is right here with early fan predictions if you were wunderin'.
- UFC Welterweight Title: Georges St. Pierre vs. Matt Serra
- Yushin Okami vs. Mike Swick
- Diego Sanchez vs. Josh Koscheck
- Kendall Grove vs. Alan ‘The Talent’ Belcher
- Marcus Davis vs. Pete Spratt
- Luke Cummo vs. Josh Haynes
- Roger Huerta vs. TBA
- Heath Herring vs. TBA
- Thales Leites vs. Pete Sell
Quick picks - GSP will slaughter Matt "The Human kicking post" Serra. Matt Serra is 5'6" and GSP is 5'10" Fahgettaboutit, GSP all the way! Matt Serra isn't worth writing about.
Yushin Okami is no joke folks. He's the real deal and it's about time the UFC beefed up the Middleweight division. Yushin has an impressive MMA record at 19-3-0 and won a bout against my second favorite UFC fighter, Anderson "The Spider" Silva by disqualification due to an illegal kick to the head at Rumble on the Rock 8 - January 20, 2006. Why write about a kick when I can show it to you.. that's why you keep coming back isn't it?
Here it is:
Sanchez vs.Koscheck - I can't stand Koscheck because he's not a complete fighter like Diego "Dirty" Sanchez is... yes, I know he calls himself "The Nightmare". Dana White, please put Koshit in the WFA for a while until he learns at least one submission move (and not the sloppy rear naked he tries to pull) and learns how to punch like a man and not a girl... and what guy wears a perm? He deserves and ass beating just because of his hair and for making MMA in the UFC boring when he fights unless, he's on the receiving end of a Drew Fickett flying knee, now THAT was entertaining.
Sanchez will win, no question and will deserve a shot at GSP after GSP superman punches Matt Hughes in the forehead again when Hughes tries desperately to avenge his championship loss. To see that again is easily worth double the price of the PPV event.
Kendall Grove will win this cherry picked fight against No-Talent Alan Belcher. Finally, a win for Tito's Team Punishment. Whew, if Tito's camp doesn't win any fights, we'll have to rename Big Bear to Brokeback Mountain... and you know what I mean ;)
Marcus Davis vs. Pete Spratt - Davis beat Shonie Carter at UFN7 and Pete Spratt recently won at TUF4 finale. Not really sure which welterweight will win and it really doesn't matter 'cause GSP will be the welterweight champion for the next 10-15 years.
It's an alright fight card, not the greatest, just alright. It'll get us through until the gala extravaganza of UFC 70 which will be hosted in the United Kingdom and we'll get to watch Michael "The Count" Bisping walk out to the octagon with the coolest entrance music of any fighter, "London Calling" by The Clash. Can't wait for that one!
