    Star Plenty Of Tasty Appetizers On UFC 100 Menu

    A lot of people who examine UFC fight cards—not the UFC 100 fight card in particular —seem to complain that there is usually one or two big fights worth watching and then there is a slew of just so-so tilts.

    That’s not that case at the UFC’s 100th anniversary of events. Dana White is making a big splash and a big statement—particularly to the boxing world—that UFC is deep enough to boast a card of tantalizing fights from start to finish.

    While we all know about the Frank Mir-Brock Lesnar, George St. Pierre-Thiago Alves, Michael Bisping-Dan Henderson breakdowns, here’s a look at some of the lesser fights on the UFC 100 odds and some predictions.



    Paulo Thiago vs. Jon Fitch

    Fitch is basically the biggest favorite on the entire evening as the UFC odds makers are not expecting him to slip up against Thiago.

    Fitch is a -410 favorite and Jon “Bones” Jones and George St. Pierre are next in line.

    Fitch is a very good wrestler and he’ll be looking to take Thiago to the ground from the get-go. That’s bad news for Thiago, who doesn’t match up well in that realm.

    Sports pick: Fitch



    Mark Coleman vs. Stephan Bonnar

    How old is Mark Coleman? Put it this way: he fought in UFC 10 and is now set to fight at UFC 100. He’s lasted 90 UFC events and is one of the few athletes in all of sports that is both in the Hall of Fame and is still participating.

    He’s a popular fighter but he’ll be up against a tough, savvy, desperate veteran in Stephan Bonnar. Bonnar has a tough chin and he knows that another loss would mean bad news for him in the UFC. Look for him to scrap out a tough win.

    Coleman looked completely wiped by the second round of his January bout with Shogun Rua, which might mean that Coleman doesn’t even have it in him to last three rounds.



    Jake O’Brien vs. Jon Jones

    We mentioned that Jones is one of the biggest favorites on the fight card and I’m betting management set this up as a showcase for their 21-year-old star.

    Jake O’Brien is basically just a stepping stone for Jones. Jones is heading to bigger and better things and this is just another win for him.

    I don't think the undercard is anything special; just that they have 3 fights on the main card which could be main events.

    How about Akiyama/Belcher
    For those who like judo, such as myself, Akiyama has displayed some awesome skills.

    Hmm, yeah, that might be good. I also love judo (and Adolf REALLY loves it)

    I like that Coleman is fighting since he has a history that dates way back, but I think he's too unreliable with his cardio - otherwise I'd like that matchup too.
