UFC Fight Night 62: Maia v. LaFlare Picks

This Saturday, March 21st, coming off of the momentum of the thrilling UFC 185 card that saw two titles change hands, the UFC returns to Brazil and puts on a card that is...well...not so great. This card lost Urijah Faber, Raphael Assuncao, Josh Thomson, Ben Saunders...let's be honest, they might want to rename this card: UFC Fight Night: Well, F*ck.

Don't worry folks. All is not lost. There is
a man that can and will save us from an evening of average-at-best MMA. Some (well, me) call him the Brazilian Superman. Others (also me) call him the Brazilian Octopus (this name will pick up steam soon, I swear). I'm talking about Demian Maia. One of the baddest men on Earth and worth your viewership alone just to see how effortlessly he chokes out professional fighters.

UFC 185: Pettis vs Dos Anjos picks and analysis

Welcome to the Show. The poster says it all. Anthony "Showtime" Pettis has proven to be one of the more infuriating fighters in recent UFC history. On the one hand, he is dynamite MUST SEE TV. On the other, he is prone to injury and has experienced long layoffs between many of his fights. Fortunately, it is fight week and knock on wood, we're going to get a cold glass of seltzer in a hot July, and that is a TREAT my friends. On the other side of the cage Pettis will meet a confident Rafael Dos Anjos that will be unafraid to stand with Showtime. Anything bad I ever said about Dos Anjos went out the window when he became the first man to ever knock out Benson Henderson. Let us not however, forget about the ladies. I see you Ms. Esparza, go get you another ridiculously expensive sundae! Carla Esparza makes her inaugural title defense against surging champion of the Polish people, Joanna "I had to copy/paste this to spell it right" Jedrzejczyk. It looks like it shall be a throwback match-up of the grappler vs the striker.  Will history's trend of favoring the former continue?

Anthony Pettis (c) vs. Rafael Dos Anjos

Even though Pettis' UFC career began with a lowlight loss to Clay Guida, he has looked nothing short of a generational talent ever since. Pettis has been able to put together his exceptional athleticism, supremely technical striking, vastly improved takedown defense, and always dangerous submission game into what became the first MMA fighter to get that Wheaties box cover. Dos Anjos has time and time again proven myself to be wrong in doubting him as he has emerged as one of the best all around fighters in the division. This seems like its will be a game of "anything you can do, I can do better" for Pettis though, and I can't see many avenues to victory for Dos Anjos. I expect him to come to fight, be willing to stand, but ultimately lose. Pettis by KO round 2.

Pettis: unanimous
Dos Anjos:
