UFC Fight Night 111: Fights To Watch

Naoki Inoue (10-0) is making his UFC debut against CJ de Tomas (6-0) where his superior grappling skills will overwhelm Tomas. It should be noted Inoue is the brother of Invicta strawweight Mizuki.

  • Inoue via Submission

Kwan Ho Kwak (9-1) is one of my boys and after a hard fought loss to Brett Johns in his debut I think he’ll put pick up a win in a fun back and forth striking battle with the tough Russell Doane (14-7).

  • Kwak via Decision

Jinliang Li (12-4) sometimes known as “The Leech” will be going to war with the undersized Frank Camacho (20-4) who will look to start early but will give into Li’s pressure as the fight goes on.

  • Li via TKO

Justin Scoggins (11-3) is one of my boys I consider myself a huge fan but his losses all come from his own mental mistakes and his weight bundlers don’t help with his reputation. All and all he is a young kid still putting it together and easily made the 125 pound limit this time around. Yuta Sasaki (19-4-2) is a dangerous scrambler and someone who can exploit the grappling holes in Scoggins game. This is great matchmaking and I’m pulling for Scoggins but Sasaki is badass in his own way.

  • Scoggins via KO

RDA (25-9) will be coming into his fight against Tarec Saffiedine (16-6) having exactly the thing Tarec has always needed POWER. Also RDA looked massive at the weigh ins and considering he is moving up that doesn’t bold well for Tarec.

  • RDA via KO

Colby Covington (11-1) really gets MMA and has tons of tools and ways to use them to win any match-up at 170 pounds. Dong Hyun Kim  (22-3-1) is a older version of himself and much more wild. I hope he can at least make Covington work for a round before gassing. Kim’s wildness is something to watch out for cause he can surprize anyone. Nah fuck it Kim is one of my boys gotta pick him.

  • Kim via KO

Marcin Tybura (15-2) only needs to land one shot of his improved striking repertoire to put Andrei Arlovski (25-14) which is sad to say.

  • Tybura via Head Kick KO

Bethe Correia (10-2-1) will be putting hands on Holly Holm (10-3) early Saturday morning and will give Holly her fourth straight loss in a row.

  • Bethe via DESTRUCTION   

 


Note: I skipped last weeks UFC cause there just wasn’t much I personally wanted to write about. I will be doing another long form version of my picks for UFC 213 but expect only quick picks for smaller cards or a breakdown of a specific fight/fighter.
