Strikeforce: Marquardt vs Saffiedine Predictions


http://www.themmanews.com

Sorry all, I was away on vacation but I made it back in time for Strikeforce’s last hoo-ray card. It’s probably one of the most lopsided cards. But, it just means expect finishes like usual! I’m not going to break this one down but point out that most of these guys are and are not fighting for a UFC contract. I have my eyes on a few fighters such as KJ Noons, Anthony Smith, Pat Healy, and Jorge Gurgel who will likely need a stand out performance to get the UFC brass to give them a call. I really expect all the main event favorites to role, with the exception of Gegard Mousasi, and Nate Marquardt. Mousasi hasn’t fought in awhile, and Mike Kyle packs a punch. I think the threat of his hands gives him a shot, hell he dropped Antonio Silva at heavyweight, but couldn’t finish the job. I think Mousasi wins but, it might be a closer fight than imagined especially with the stakes of a UFC contract possibly on the line. As for Marquardt, he should win as well but Tarec Saffiedine is a tough kid, and won’t go away easily. I just don’t think he ready for someone like Marquardt that is dangerous in every scenario, but we will see. Daniel Cormier, and Josh Barnett should roll early in the first round, and Ronaldo Souza should take Ed Herman pretty easily as well. Granted Herman is a UFC veteran, Souza is just better in everything that Herman is. Anyways, I expect fireworks!
