FOSCO'S PICKS: UFC ON FUEL TV 2

April 12, 2012

VFD Sports' resident MMA expert, John Fosco gives his breakdown of three upcoming UFC fights.  In this weeks edition, he discusses UFC on FUEL TV 2, taking place in Stockholm Sweden on April 14:

 

DENNIS SIVER VS. DIEGO NUNES:  "This is a tough one to call.  Siver is one tough, thick guy, but at the end of the day, I think the weight cut to 145 will be his undoing.  I have Nunes outpacing him at the end of the day.

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: NUNES VIA DECISION

 

BRIAN STANN VS. ALESSIO SAKARA:  "Both of these guys are bangers, but Sakara is easy to beat if you take him down.  Stann's chin is weaker, which could prove to be the great equalizer.  I'm gonna go with the upset in this one."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: SAKARA VIA KO (RD 1)

 

MAIN EVENT- ALEXANDER GUSTAFSSON VS. THIAGO SILVA:  "Silva likes to brawl and is one tough dude, but he's going to realize real quick that he can't hang with Gustafsson, and will try to lock the fight up.  I think Gustafsson will create space, catch Silva, and drop him."

OFFICIAL PREDICTION: GUSTAFSSON VIA TKO (RD 2)

 

So there you have it.  Fosco's picks are in and we will be tracking his progress throughout the year.
