Today I'm thrilled to see that my Navy pick at -3 has gone down to -1.5 so looks like I'm on the wrong side of that one. But who cares? Cause it's fight night!!!
@drjayh absolutely crushed it two weeks ago and he has his picks for us tonight.
TUF 24 Finale
This week the UFC is holding the finals for The Ultimate Fighter season 24, their long running reality show. In the past almost every show concentrated on a one or two weight division elimination tournament with contestants living in "the house" in Las Vegas with the winner getting a $100,000 UFC contract. Many of the current UFC stars got their start on The Ultimate Fighter. This last TUF was different. Probably because Dementias "Might Mouse" Johnson, the reigning Flyweight champion, has soundly beaten every pretender to the throne in the division for a long time so the UFC got the idea to go around the world to every major MMA fighting organization they could find and have their champions compete in a tournament with the winner not only getting $100,000, and two Harley Davidson motorcycles, but also fighting Mighty Mouse for the championship belt at the Finale.
Demetrius Johnson versus Tim Elliott
Johnson is the consummate MMA fighter. He has no weakness in his game. He is superbly skilled in every area of MMA fighting. In addition, what I really respect about him being a martial artist, is he has been the perfect representative of the role model athlete. He demonstrates honor, respect, and dedication to his craft. He is a gentleman to his opponents, and has never shown any behavior that would bring shame to his fighting art. He is currently ranked as the best pound for pound (p4p) fighter in the world.
Elliott was the most seasoned fighter in TUF. He already has a 2-4 UFC record. He is very scrappy and has good skills.
Pick: Demetrius Johnson winning in the third round, anyway he chooses to.
Joseph Benavidez versus Henry Cejudo
It is the tradition in TUF for the two opposing coaches to fight at the finale. This year pits Joseph Benavidez, the number 2 ranked flyweight, and Henry Cejudo, the number 3 ranked flyweight. In the TV show, Benavidez' team dominated. I think that trend will continue.
Pick: Joseph Benavidez by decision.
Jake Ellenberger vs. Jorge Masvidal
Pick: Jake Ellenberger by strikes second round
Jared Cannonier vs. Ion Cutelaba
Pick: Ion Cutelaba by decision
Alexis Davis versus Sara McMann
Pick: Sara McMann by decision
Ryan Benoit versus Brandon Moreno
Pick: Brandon Moreno second round by submission
