UFC LIGHT HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT - Glover Teixeira (21-2) vs. Ryan Bader (15-3)

This fight features two solid light heavyweights, but the winner should be Teixeira for a number of reasons. One, he is the better all-around fighter. He has the striking that is far ahead of Bader and his ground game has been tested against people with the skills that Bader has. This fight is also in Brazil, where Teixeira is from. Bader has the potential to win this fight, but he would need to basically wrestle Teixeira for 25 minutes, and I don’t think he can do that. UFC FREE PICK – Glover Teixeira -450

UFC MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUTRonaldo Souza (18-3) vs. Yushin Okami (29-7)

This is a fight worth taking a small chance on. Okami is a very tough middleweight that seems to be somewhat of a gate keeper in the division. He can’t beat the top guys, but he is good enough to sort out the contenders from the pretenders. Souza is an amazing submission fighter with respectable striking, but Okami is known for smother his opponents with grappling. Okami will be the bigger, stronger fighter and should get Souza to the ground if he gets a hold of him. From there, he can avoid submissions and grind out a decision victory. UFC FREE PICK – Yushin Okami +210
