Nate Diaz Vs. Melvin Guillard

 
Name: Nate Diaz
Height: 6' 0" (183 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 10-4-0
Nate Diaz
 


Name: Melvin Guillard
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 41-8-3, 1 NC
Melvin Guillard
"The Young Assassin"
 

Charles Walker- I just think Nate is overall more skilled than Guillard.  Do I think Guillard could catch him on the feet, absolutely, but the Diaz brothers have shown to be very resilient when fighting and I think Nate can weather the storm in route to a first round submission, some type of choke btw.

 

Rich Wyatt-Lankiness rules the day. Diaz over Guillard by 2nd round submission

Kelvin Hunt-I don't know why, but I'm itching to pick Guillard in this one. He's improved his game, and I think he has the tools to win this fight.  Not to mention that Diaz had trouble making weight....but for some odd reason I think Guillard will somehow fall into a submission.



Gray Maynard Vs. Roger Huerta

 
Name: Gray Maynard
Height: 5' 8" (173 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 8-0-0, 1 NC
Gray Maynard
"The Bully"


Name: Roger Huerta
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 22-2-1, 1 NC
Roger Huerta
"El Matador"
 

Charles Walker-If Maynard wasn't so big and wasn't such a good wrestler, I'd probably lean towards Huerta, but the long layoff and the fact he's facing a guy similar to Guida (who was winning their fight).  Maynard will 'bully' Huerta around for three rounds and win a sound unanimous decision.

 

Rich Wyatt-Maynard executes a nice gameplan in this one. Maynard by decision

Kelvin Hunt-I like Huerta, the guy has skills and madd heart, but the year long lay off plus the strength/wrestling ability of Maynard will be too much.  Maynard via decision.



Carlos Condit Vs. Jake Ellenberger

 
Name: Carlos Condit
Height: 6' 2" (188 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 23-5-0
Carlos Condit
"Natural Born Killer"


Name: Jake Ellenberger
Height: 6' 0" (183 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 21-4-0
Jake Ellenberger
 
 

Charles Walker- I'll be honest, I know nothing about Ellenberger, so of course I'm going to pick Condit, who should be thanking his lucky stars he didn't have to face Lytle, who I may have leaned towards.  I see this being a KO/TKO early in the fight.

Rich Wyatt-Condit defeats Ellenberger by submission in the 3rd round.

 

Kelvin Hunt-I think Condit will be too much for Ellenberger, but Ellenberger will put up a good fight.  Condit via decision.

Nate Quarry Vs. Tim Credeur

 
Name: Nate Quarry
Height: 6' 0" (183 cm)
Weight: 185 (84 kg)
Record: 17-3-0
Nate Quarry
"Rock"


Name: Tim Credeur
Height: 6' 3" (191 cm)
Weight: 185 (84 kg)
Record: 13-4-0
Tim Credeur
"Crazy"
 

Charles Walker-Credeur's had a good run, but it's about to come to an end.  Quarry's stand up should suffice against Credeur's weird style and I think he'll probably end it late in the fight but it'll be a worn down Credeur facing the mat

Rich Wyatt-Nate Quarry defeats Tim Credeur by decision

Kelvin Hunt-If Quarry's last fight was any indicator, he should be able to win this fight.  Jason MacDonald is a big middleweight and Nate Quarry just ran through him. Quarry via TKO in Rd. 2

UFC Fight Night 19: Diaz vs. Guillard coverage

Steve Cantwell Vs. Brian Stann

 
Name: Steve Cantwell
Height: 6' 2" (188 cm)
Weight: 205 (93 kg)
Record: 7-2-0
Steve Cantwell
"Robot"


Name: Brian Stann
Height: 6' 1" (185 cm)
Weight: 205 (93 kg)
Record: 6-2-0
Brian Stann
"All American"
 

Charles Walker-You know Stann is the future of the light heavyweight division and one win away from a title shot(lots of sarcasm).  With that said, Cantwell showed tremendous heart and skill against Luiz Cane, so I see this ending similar to their second fight in WEC and Stann goes down sometime in the second round.

Rich Wyatt-Cantwell defeats Stann by decision

Kelvin Hunt-Cantwell has already smoked Stann once, and I think he's improved a lot more than Stann since that time.  I think Cantwell stops the "All American" in the first round via TKO.

 

Chris Wilson Vs. Mike Pyle

 
Name: Chris Wilson
Height: 6' 1" (185 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 13-5-0, 1 NC
Chris Wilson
"The Professor"


Name: Mike Pyle
Height: 6' 1" (185 cm)
Weight: 170 (77 kg)
Record: 17-6-1
Mike Pyle
"Quicksand"
 

Charles Walker-This is a toss up, I picked Wilson for some reason...via decision

Rich Wyatt-Wilson defeats Pyle by TKO in the 3rd

Kelvin Hunt-Chris Wilson is tough as nails, as well as Mike Pyle.  This is a tough one to call, but I'm going to go with Chris Wilson via hard fought decision.

 

CB Dollaway Vs. Jay Silva

 
Name: CB Dollaway
Height: 6' 2" (188 cm)
Weight: 185 (84 kg)
Record: 9-3-0
CB Dollaway
"The Doberman"


Name: Jay Silva
Height: 6' 2" (188 cm)
Weight: 185 (84 kg)
Record: 5-1-0
Jay Silva
 
 

Charles Walker-Dollaway by submission early

Rich Wyatt-Silva defeats Dollaway by TKO in the 3rd

Kelvin Hunt-I don't know much about Silva, but it seems as though he likes to finish his opponents.  Dollaway will probably play it safe and take the decision win.      

 

Sam Stout Vs. Phillipe Nover

 
Name: Sam Stout
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 15-5-1
Sam Stout
"Hands of Stone"


Name: Phillipe Nover
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 6-2-1
Phillipe Nover
"The Filipino Assassin"
 

Charles Walker- I want Nover to win and I want to pick him but Stout is a dangerous opponent, a little one dimensional but he's good at that one dimension..lol...so with that said, I think Nover might actually pull this one off in a war and get a split decision.

Rich Wyatt-Nover defeats Stout by TKO in the 2nd.

Kelvin Hunt-Stout probalby has the edge striking, but Nover is more well rounded.  I think Nover will finally get that first UFC win via Submission in the 2nd round.

Name: Jeremy Stephens
Height: 5' 9" (175 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)

Name: Justin Buchholz
Height: 6' 0" (183 cm)
Weight: 155 (70 kg)
Record: 9-3-0
Justin Buchholz
 
 

Charles Walker-I got Jeremy Stephens by Mortal Kombat uppercut

Rich Wyatt-Stephens defeats Buchholz by decision

Kelvin Hunt-I think Stephens stops Buchholz via TKO in the 2nd round.
