UFC on FX 2 Picks
SYDNEY, Australia – UFC on FX 2 takes place on Friday night with a number of explosive and exciting bouts. Here are some picks to consider for tonight’s card.
UFC on FX 2 will have its main card air live on FX at 9PM ET. The bouts will be held in the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia.
Alves and Kampmann should put on a very entertaining fight, but I see Alves squeaking this one out. Kampmann would be wise to get the fight to the ground, but I don’t think he has the strength to. I see this fight standing, where Alves will have the edge. Look for Thiago to win by unanimous decision. FREE PICK – Thiago Alves -140
This will be the debut of the 125-pound division for the UFC but McCall is making his first jump into the octagon while Johnson has already competed three times in the UFC at 135 pounds. That will be the key here as he will not have the in-cage jitters that McCall will. Johnson doesn’t allow his opponents to really think and McCall will have an active mind from the stage he is on. Look for Johnson to overwhelm McCall and get a first round submission. FREE PICK – Demetrious Johnson -325
This fight has the closest money line and should be a grind. Philippou will look to strike but I see McGee making this an ugly fight and using his grappling and clinching to earn a decision. He will push a fast pace for Philippou and not allow him to get into a comfortable striking range. FREE PICK – Court McGee -120
