FOSCO'S PICKS: UFC 145 JONES VS. EVANS

April 18, 2012

VFD Sports' resident MMA expert, John Fosco gives his breakdown of three upcoming UFC fights.  In this weeks edition, he discusses UFC 145: Jones vs. Evans, taking place in Atlanta, Georgia on April 21:

 

TRAVIS BROWNE VS. CHAD GRIGGS:  "Obviously, Travis is my guy! He is bigger, stronger, more athletic and agile.  He can knock you out with any limb and is way more versatile than Griggs, whose only chance is to land a power shot."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: BROWNE VIA TKO (RD 2)

 

RORY MACDONALD VS. CHE MILLS:  "Rory is the next big thing at welterweight.  I think he will manhandle Mills, as Rory is a better tactician, more physical, and just an all-around better fighter."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: MACDONALD VIA TKO (RD 2)

 

MAIN EVENT- JON JONES VS. RASHAD EVANS:  "I think this will be a tougher fight than the betting line says.  Bones will have to deal with some real pressure for the first time in his career and it may take him a little time to adjust to it.  In the end, I still think Jonny remains the champ, but again, it will be a close fight."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: JONES VIA SUB (RD 3)
