Welcome to Stockholm ladies and gentleman.
Alexander Gustafsson vs Anthony Rumble Johnson: This main event is a huge one for the light heavyweights. 2 of the top 3 in the division clashing all for a shot at Jon "coke" Jones. Gustafsson to me should have won against Jones the decision in my opinion of the judges was laughable. Rumble is probably the knockout artist of the UFC not just the light heavyweights. Gustafsson is the best opponent for Jones to be able to dethrone the "king". I am sticking with my gut and saying Gustafsson wins in 2 rounds with a TKO.
Dan Henderson vs Gegard Mousasi: this fight has two big middleweight names. I love Hendo and what he's done for the UFC but I'm starting to wonder is it time to pass the torch. This fight he might be just doing so. Mousasi is a beast in the middleweight division and is ready for a brawl. I am going to pick Mousasi in a unanimous decision after three grueling rounds.
Phil Mr. Wonderful Davis vs. Ryan "Darth" Bader: This fight is a fight I've been thinking about since it got announced. Mr. Wonderful needs to continue his climb again because I truly think he is the best fighter in the 205 weight class just lost his way lately. Meanwhile Bader is always a threat to win any fight he is a gritty strong jawed opponent with a great all around game. I like Bader a lot as a fighter and a person. I have to say though I'm picking the Wonderful one in a third round submission in a fight we will all remember.
Akira Corassani vs Sam Sicilia: This is a pretty low key entrance to the Main Card but it is what it is. Akira is 12-5 with 7 of his fights going to decision which is no good because nobody likes the judges. Sam Sicilia is 13-5 and 11 of his wins are finishes 7 by knockout 4 by submission. This fight has the potential to be exciting regardless of the smaller names. I am going to stick with the finisher and take a first round knock out from Sicilia.
