FOSCO'S PICKS: UFC 146 DOS SANTOS VS. MIR

May 26, 2012

VFD Sports' resident MMA expert, John Fosco gives his breakdown of three upcoming UFC fights.  In this weeks edition, he discusses UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir, taking place in Las Vegas, Nevada on May 26:

 

EDSON BARBOZA VS. JAMIE VARNER:  "I see Edson opening up conservatively, taking out Jamie's front leg.  After Varner loses his base, Edson will go in for the finish."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: BARBOZA VIA TKO (RD 2)

 

DIEGO BRANDAO VS. DARREN ELKINS:  "Diego will be more intense, stronger, and have more heart than Elkins.  This one is quick.

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: BRANDAO VIA SUB (RD 1)

 

MAIN EVENT- JUNIOR DOS SANTOS VS. FRANK MIR:  "Frank will try to close the distance but it's not going to work.  Mir will eat a lot of punches in the first round and hurt going into the second.  This will set up a knockout for Junior to remain the champ."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: DOS SANTOS VIA KO (RD 2)
