UFC 155: Eddie Wineland vs. Brad Pickett Preview & Prediction

Eddie Wineland UFC

Steve Mitchell-US Presswire

A bantamweight fight takes place this weekend in the UFC between Eddie Wineland and Brad Pickett.  Both fighters have gotten back to their winning ways, and they will both be looking to score an impressive finish in hopes of getting in the title picture.

Eddie Wineland comes into this fight sporting a record of 19-8-1.  He is coming off an emphatic KO win over Scott Jorgensen.  If he is able to defeat Brad Picket as well, he may be next in line for the title shot, which will be contested between interim champ Renan Barao and Michael McDonald early next year.

Brad Pickett comes into this fight with an overall record of 22-6.  He is also coming off an impressive KO victory over Yves Jabouin.  Pickett has fought some of the best in Renan Barao, Ivan Menjivar, and Demetrious Johnson.  Pickett is currently on a two fight winning streak, and Eddie Wineland will be one of his sternest competitions yet.

Both of these fighters can end the fight standing, and this match up has knockout of the night written all over it.  On paper, this fight seems like a toss up.  Picket is dynamic in terms of submissions, but Wineland has shown some great grappling skills in his own right in his UFC tenure.

If the fight remains standing, Eddie will be able to land the better shots and will end up rocking Pickett.  Picket will put up a good fight, but Wineland is putting everything together as of late.  Final prediction: Eddie Wineland wins via TKO in the second round.

Dana White Doesn’t Think Conor McGregor Can Beat Rafael dos Anjos

Things are getting interesting ahead of UFC 196. The headlining fight at that March 5 pay-per-view event will see UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor move up to lightweight to face the champion of that division Rafael dos Anjos. If McGregor succeeds he will become the first UFC fighter to hold belts in two different divisions simultaneously. The oddsmakers have McGregor as the favorite ahead of the fight. UFC president Dana White doesn’t necessarily hold the same opinion.

Ronda Rousey’s Mom Predicted Holly Holm Would Knock Her Out

Dr. AnnMaria De Mars is the first woman ever to win a gold medal at the World Judo Championship doing so in 1984. She is also the mother of former UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey. Further she may be the most vocal critic of Rousey’s coach Edmond Tarverdyan. Appearing on Submission Radio De Mars once again spoke out on Tarverdyan commenting on Rousey’s loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193. “I predicted it in advance Ronda trained with an idiot and a fraud” said De Mars.
