UFC 118

UFC 118: Penn v Edgar II Predictions

118 is, by no doubt, this years most interesting in terms of BJ Penn's legacy; after the great upset earlier this year, Penn will be looking to hit back and reclaim his title as well as prove himself as the definite #1 lightweight in MMA. I will be expecting an invigorated B.J that will regain his title decisively.

We've also got the defining moment in MMA history, when boxings James Toney goes head to head against the MMA legend Randy Couture - this is definitely a match-up to go down in the books no matter which way it sways and will determine what people think of either sport in question. I'm not sure what to expect of this fight, on the card it may seem as though Couture is a definite winner - with his superior wrestling advantage, although no-body has any idea of what improvement Toney has made in his MMA game over the past few months.

This card will also see the first time Demian Maia gets back into the Octogon after the embarassing defeat to Anderson Silva. Maia will be looking to get a swift submission win to prove his contender ship in the Middleweight division. I'm expecting Maia to get a decision win, he has definitely lost some momentum from the two losses that he's had in the past three fights.

Stay tuned for uploads of the fights!
