UFC FLYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Demetrious Johnson (19-2-1) vs. Ali Bagautinov (13-2)

We saw a big upset last month in the bantamweight division, but I don’t see that happening tonight for the flyweight title. Johnson is faster, and even perhaps stronger than Bagautinov. Johnson also has the championship conditioning that I think his opponent is lacking. Look for Bagautinov to slow down in the championship rounds, which will open the door for Johnson to score a submission finish. UFC 174 FREE PICK – Demetrious Johnson -600

UFC WELTERWEIGHT BOUTTyron Woodley (13-2) vs. Rory MacDonald (16-2)

This should be a good fight. I like the slight underdog in MacDonald to win by decision. I think Woodley will come out very strong and win the first round, but I don’t think he has the conditioning to go strong for 15 minutes. He carries a lot of muscle on his frame. MacDonald does a good job of avoiding damage and will survive the early flurry from Woodley before turning it on for the final two rounds. UFC 174 FREE PICK – Rory MacDonald +105

UFC HEAVYWEIGHT BOUTBrendan Schaub (10-3) vs. Andrei Arlovski (21-10)

Arlovski is making his UFC return after a long time away from the octagon. Schaub has won his last two, but both men really could use a win tonight. The big aspect of this fight is that both men have questionable chins. Both have been brutally KO’d on more than one occasion. This fight will probably come down to who lands the big punch first. With the odds so close, I say go with the underdog in Arlovski. He has the athleticism to win a grappling match and the power to KO Schaub. UFC 174 FREE PICK – Andrei Arlovski +125
