UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann Fight Predictions
UFC Fight Night 27: Condit vs. Kampmann
Condit vs Kampmann
If this fight is anything like the first it is going to be a great battle. I like Condit in the rematch; his game has come a lot further than Kampmann’s since they last met. Condit’s aggression and killer instinct are second to none. He has always been susceptible to takedowns, but in preparation for Georges and Johnny and since, I have to think his level of wrestling is at a higher level than Martin Kampmann’s.
Carlos is more durable than Kampmann. His aggressive, technical style, and his desire for revenge should take him over the top.
Condit by 2nd Round TKO
Cerrone vs Dos Anjos
Dos Anjos is going to need to get this one to the ground. Cerrone is too good a striker and uses his range very well. I do not see Dos Anjos being able to deal with Cerrone’s sizeable striking advantage. Cerrone’s kicks are going to play a significant role in this fight. His ability to use range and keep Dos Anjos at a very uncomfortable range is going to allow him to pick him apart
Cerrone by 3rd round TKO
Gastelum vs Melancon
This one is going to be interesting I have not seen a lot of either fighter. The TUF is not always an accurate depiction of how a fighter’s career will go. Melancon looked great in his last performance. Even still I have to go with Gastelum I think he will be able to use his wrestling, avoid Melancon’s aggressive striking and take him down. I do not believe this will be the most impressive fight, but I will give it to the Gastelum.
Gastelum by decision
McGee vs Whitaker
Whitaker will be the better striker and is very dangerous, but Court is going to have a sizeable grappling advantage. This one comes down to Whitaker ability to land the big shots required to stop McGee before McGee takes him to the ground and implement his game plan. I have a feeling that McGee is going to get the nod in this one with his superior grappling.
McGee by decision
Mizugaki vs Perez
Perez is an up and coming talent in the Bantamweight division. Mizugaki has been in their with the top fighters in the division but has a very unimpressive record, and I do not think that it is going to get any better after tomorrow night. Perez is good talent and will stake his claim with the big dogs of the division after tomorrow night. If Perez wants to impress he is going to have to finish the durable Mizugaki.
Perez by decision
Tavares vs McDaniel
Tavares deserves a lot better than McDaniel considering his 5-1 record in the UFC. I do not see this one lasting long, Tavares should be able to make fairly quick work of the TUFF veteran.
Tavares first round KO
