UFC 129 Predictions

UFC 129

I'll do a recap of the fights as there are already 3 prelim fights in the books. I would rather see the Nate Diaz fight on the PPV instead of The Janitor, but this should be a good one that I will actually watch at Hooters instead of an illegal stream on the internet!

MAIN EVENT
UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP
Champion: Georges "Rush" St. Pierre
(21-2, 8 TKO’s, 5 submissions) -500
Vs
Challenger: Jake Shields
(26-4-1, 3 TKO’s, 10 submissions) +300


Prediction: Frenchie St. Pierre is on another world right now compared to everyone else in MMA. I can't stand him, but respect him but I don't think I would respect him as much as the bookmakers have. Shields is on a winning streak longer than my... well, it's long. In the end, GSP retains the title via unanimous decision. Fight of the Night Bonus
