Mark Munoz throwing down “Donkey Kong” punches!
1. Who’s power will win in the battle of the Heavyweights?
Both Junior Dos Santos and Shane Carwin carry dynamite in their hands, some heavier than others and some quicker than others. This is probably a fight I don’t know who’s going to win. I really think it’s a matter of game plans. If Dos Santos is able to keep his distance and pick Carwin apart with his speed, he’ll win the fight. Although, now if Carwin is able to bully Dos Santos and get a hold of him — that’ll be bad news for Cigano. I can’t wait.
2. Will the weight cut affect Kenny Florian’s performance?
Kenny Florian came into the UFC as a Middleweight and has slowly become the vanishing man by moving down to nearly all of the weight classes: Welterweight, Lightweight, and now Featherweight. That’s a huge difference and granted he was able make the cut yesterday, but on fight night — will he be too dehydrated? Will he be able to bring his strength down to the lower weight class? Diego Nunes is a huge test — definitely not an easy test.
3. Is this Mark Munoz’s coming out party against Demian Maia?
Demian Maia is a legit Top 10 Middleweight, and it’s going to be a huge test for Mark Munoz. For a person who’s pedigree is in wrestling, you’d assume he’d like to take it to the ground, but that’s where Maia’s most dangerous. Now, will both working hard on their striking — who’s going to win that battle? If Mark can bring the power he’s shown in the past, this could rocket him up the rankings quick.
