Another great UFC event in the books with UFC on Versus 2. I’ll be giving you a taste of the results associated with the predictions I made earlier this week. You’ll notice the prediction scorecard I have on the right column — it keeps me honest. I leave this event with a 3-2 record.
1. Jon Jones manhandles Vladimir Matyushenko
Jon Jones completely overwhelmed Vladimir Matyushenko in way where it looked like it was another day in the gym. There was a sense of ease while watching him take him down, then the monster came out when the vicious elbows started to reigning down on “The Janitor’s” head. There’s no question Jones is a Top 10 Light Heavyweight. Who’s next?
(+1) Prediction: Jon Jones wins over Vladimir Matyushenko
2. Yushin Okami stuffs all of Mark Munoz’s wrestling
Yushin Okami looked relax and comfortable in the ring. He also looked big and strong, which came into play when Mark Munoz went for his takedowns. Yushin literally stuffed and nullified “The Filipino Wrecking Machine’s” biggest part of his game, wrestling. It seemed like he knew exactly when a shot would come and sprawled beautifully. It was kind of shocking to see a split decision win, but when you leave it to the judges — things can happen.
(-1) Prediction: Mark Munoz wins over Yushin Okami
