UFC 129 Predictions Results: I was 136-103-3 coming in and did decent. The pick of Couture was out of sheer respect. I knew Machida had an edge but thought Couture would put all of his remaining tank into this. Watch out for Rory MacDonald, future contender. Dana might have to give out a shit load of bonuses, the event lived up to the hype for damn sure. I went 8-4 to improve my record to 144-107-3, still sucks.
