Ultimate Fight Night 9 Picks

Here is the Ultimate Fight Night Live 9 card for tonight on Spike TV @ 8pm EST along with UFC.com visitors' picks and mine thrown in as well to mess you up a bit.

Joe Stevenson Vs. Melvin Guillard

Name: Joe Stevenson "Daddy"
Height: 5' 7" (170 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 31-7-0

Name: Melvin Guillard "The Young Assassin"
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 39-6-3


Joe Stevenson 50.1%
Melvin Guillard 49.9%

Pick: Guillard - Yeah, he can be a dick outside of the ring but when the lights are on and the cameras are angled at The Young Assassin, look out Daddy!

Justin McCully Vs. Antoni Hardonk

Name: Justin McCully "The Insane 1"
Height: 6' 2" (188 cm)
Weight: 240 (109 kg)
Record: 7-3-2

Name: Antoni Hardonk
Height: 6' 4" (193 cm)
Weight: 245 (111 kg)
Record: 5-2-0

Justin McCully 26.3%
Antoni Hardonk 73.7%

Pick: Hardonk - Frank Mir was expected to fight Hardonk however, he couldn't due to injury so McCully was a last minute replacement. Hardonk will KTFO of the gearbox who refers to himself as, "The Insane 1".

McCully needs an ass kicking just for his nickname alone.

Dokonjonosuke Mishima Vs. Kenny Florian

Name: Dokonjonosuke Mishima
Height: 5' 7" (170 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 17-5-2

Name: Kenny Florian "KenFlo"
Height: 5' 10" (178 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 7-3-0

Dokonjonosuke Mishima 23.3%
Kenny Florian 76.7%

Pick: KenFlo - Is there any doubt? Florian is coming off a bloody battle loss to Sean Sherk for the UFC Lightweight crown and KenFlo's ground game is freakin' scary so look for a very quick submission victory from Florian to mount his return for the quest for the Lightweight belt. I like KenFlo and want to see more of his skills highlighted in future bouts.
============================================

Keita Nakamura Vs. Drew Fickett

Name: Keita Nakamura "K-Taro"
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 13-1-2

Name: Drew Fickett "The Master"
Height: 5' 10" (178 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 30-5-0

May not be broadcast.

Keita Nakamura 17.6%
Drew Fickett 82.4%

Pick: Fickett - Complete mis-match and easy walk through for Drew.

Kurt Pellegrino Vs. Nate Mohr

Name: Kurt Pellegrino "Batman"
Height: 5' 8" (173 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 15-2-0

Name: Nate Mohr
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 6-3-0

May not be broadcast.

Kurt Pellegrino 76.1%
Nate Mohr 23.9%

Pick: Pellegrino - Pellegrino deserves an ass kicking for naming himself after my favourite superhero however, I can overlook that with respect to Pellegrino's UFC (1-1) experience Vs. Mohr who has none. Mohr looks like a Tomato Can to me and ready for an easy submission victory by, a-hem... Batman.

Forrest Petz Vs. Kuniyoshi Hironaka

Name: Forrest Petz "The Meat Cleaver"
Height: 5' 10" (178 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 18-3-0

Name: Kuniyoshi Hironaka
Height: 5' 10" (178 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 10-3-0

May not be broadcast.

Forrest Petz 71.1%
Kuniyoshi Hironaka 28.9%

Pick: Hironaka - Hironaka went the distance with Jon Fitch in his last fight at UFC 64 and lost by decision. Read that again, Hironaka went the distance with Jon Fitch... 'nuff said.

Seth Petruzelli Vs. Wilson Gouveia

Name: Seth Petruzelli "The Silverback"
Height: 6' 0" (183 cm)
Weight: 205 (93 kg)
Record: 10-4-0

Name: Wilson Gouveia
Height: 6' 1" (185 cm)
Weight: 205 (93 kg)
Record: 7-4-0

May not be broadcast.

Seth Petruzelli 56.5%
Wilson Gouveia 43.5%

Pick: Gouveia - I am a Seth fan and love his high kicks... when he feels like using them that is. I was disappointed with his loss against Matt Hamill and don't think Seth has the intensity to be victorious with this bout... and I am a Seth fan.

Gouveia has gone the distance with Keith Jardine and lost by decision and also won against Jon Fitch... did you get that? He won against Jon Fitch! Gouveia hands down will be the winner and Seth will be yet again, the wiener.

Roan Carneiro Vs. Rich Clementi

Name: Roan Carneiro "Jucao"
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 10-5-0

Name: Rich Clementi "No Love"
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 34-11-1

May not be broadcast.

Roan Carneiro 21.5%
Rich Clementi 78.5%

Pick: "No Love" - We have love for Rich, fo show. Carneiro is another Tomato Can that will be knocked down easily by Clementi.

Naoyuki Kotani Vs. Thiago Tavares

Name: Naoyuki Kotani
Height: 5' 8" (173 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 17-5-5

Name: Thiago Tavares
Height: 5' 7" (170 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 14-0-0

May not be broadcast.

Naoyuki Kotani 14.5%
Thiago Tavares 85.5%

Pick: Tavares - Thiago is undefeated and is a pure submission specialist. Expect Tavares to stay undefeated after this is in the books.

*** That's about it, some think this fight card is boring... then again, some think that Matt Serra will beat GSP at UFC 69 as well... let's keep things in perspective and be thankful that we have the chance to see some fighting after a month long drought of UFC action ***

TUF 5 follows this Pearl from the Pearl @ 10PM EST tonight on Spike TV!
