The good fellas, Aaron Weinbaum and Blake Stephenson are back at it and break down their UFC Fight Night 125 picks.
Timothy Johnson – who owns the UFC’s most fantastic mustache – has alternated wins and losses since coming to the UFC in April 2015. He’s coming off a loss against Junior Albini in July and takes on Marcelo Golm. Will he stay true to his pattern and get a win?
Michel Prazeres, who is on a 5 fight win streak dating back to November 2015, takes on Desmond Green. Prazeres has finished his last two fights via north south choke. Green, was on a 5 fight win streak of his own until being stopped by Rustam Khabilov last September. Can Green get back on the winning track?
Valentina Shevchenko, who owns wins against Holly Holm and Juliana Pena, is making the move down to 125 to take on Pricila Cachoeira. Will Valentina emerge a contender in the flyweight division?
John Dodson has alternated wins and losses since returning to bantamweight April 2016. Before his return to bantamweight, Dotson unsuccessfully challenged Demetrious Johnson twice for the flyweight title. Dotson takes on Pedro Munhoz, who is on a 4 fight win streak. Munhoz’s last victory was a guillotine choke over Rob Font. Seems like it’s sink or swim time for Dotson.
Lyoto Machida, who hasn’t been on the right side of a fight since beating CB Dolloway back in Dec 2014, takes on Eryk Anders. Anders is a former Alabama Crimson Tide football player who has yet to be defeated in mixed martial arts. Will Machida start his climb back to the top?
