Mitrione vs. Hague Prediction

2011 UFC Picks and Predictions Matt Mitrione Tim Hague

KILLEEN, TX (TheSpread) – A heavyweight clash will be featured on UFC Fight For The Troops 2 on Saturday as Tim Hague takes on Matt Mitrione. Here is a breakdown of my pick for this bout.

UFC Fight For The Troops 2 takes place from Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas and will air live on Spike TV at 9PM ET. Mitrione enters the fight as the favorite according to oddsmakers from online sportsbook Sportsbook.com as he has betting odds of -280 while Hague comes into the fight with odds of +220.

Matt Mitrione (3-0)

Mitrione is very early into his UFC career, but the former NFL player has looked impressive thus far. He has scored two KO wins, including one over Kimbo Slice. His striking has been his strength, as he meshes strong punches with leg kicks and kicks to the body. Where Mitrione has to work is his ground game and in his cardio. He tends to slow down quite a bit as the fight carries on.

Tim Hague (12-4)

Hague is a big fighter that likes to smother his opponents with his size and ware them down before overwhelming them with his striking and wrestling. Hague lost three straight in the UFC and was let go by the company, but has since picked up two wins and is getting a second-chance in the organization. A win over Mitrione would be big, but Hague has to push the pace and show improved striking defense.

Who To Pick?

My pick goes with Mitrione as he will find a way to land some big body kicks and punches to put Hague down late in the opening round. Hague doesn’t have the stand up skills that Mitrione has, and look for Mitrione to continue to improve and mix up his striking and keep the fight standing. UFC FREE PICK: MATT MITRIONE -280
