Jose Rodriguez offers his thoughts on who will win at UFC 132:
Champ Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber for the bantamweight title: These guys don’t like each other. Cruz is a far different scrapper than the one Faber beat in the past. But he still doesn’t have enough to stop Faber’s spastic attack. Prediction: Faber by decision.
Wanderlei Silva vs. Chris Leben: Don’t blink. Someone’s getting knocked out. Both of these guys need a victory and though Wanderlei’s chin has looked suspect in the past, his stone hands should carry him to victory. Prediction: Silva by second-round TKO.
Ryan Bader vs. Tito Ortiz: It’s a bit of Yesterday vs. Today. Both can wrestle, but Bader can knock people out. Prediction: Bader by third-round TKO and Tito retires.
Carlos Condit vs. Dong Hyun Kim: The “stun gun” has yet to lose, but Condit is on the doorstep of a title shot. There’s too much at risk for Condit. Prediction: Condit by decision.
Dennis Siver vs. Matt Wiman: Siver showed a relentless attack against George Sotiropoulos and if he does the same against Wiman, he should get the win. Prediction: Siver by decision.
