Rousimar Palhares vs Mike Massenzio
Both of these men are are Jiu jitsu black belts, but Palhares has the advantage. For one, if you watch his highlight video, his submissions come with evil intentions.

Vitor Belfort vs Anthony Johnson
Both fighters are knockout artist. This would be a great fight for both men to go to war on their feet. Belfort has knocked out the higher caliber fighters but Anthony Johnson has longer reach and a height advantage.
Experience is not always the best tell for a winner but Belfort’s experience should help him greatly here. Not to mention, Belfort is a black belt in brazilian jiu jitsu. Even though, Belfort has not submitted an opponent in 10 years, he still has the edge in this fight.
Johnson is at +115 so for every dollar you bet you can win $1.15.
GetRichPick will Bet on Vitor Belfort (-135)
Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes: UFC Featherweight Championship Bout
Jose Aldo has to keep Chad Mendes from taking this fight to that mat.
Aldo is one of the best pure strikers in MMA but, as one of the best wrestlers in MMA, Mendes is very successful with his takedowns.
Aldo has excellent takedown defense. His leg kicks can also impair Mendes’ explosiveness for takedowns. And who wants to bet Aldo has been practicing knees to the head of an opponent who shoots for a takedown?
Jose Aldo by Knockout (Under 4.5)
