UFC 111 Bet Pick/Prediction: Shane Carwin Vs Frank Mir

Frank Mir has bulked up to the 255 lb weight maximum after his loss to Brock Lesnar. Shane Carwin is at the maximum 255 lb and has KO power to spare with 6 TKO wins and 5 Submission victories for a perfect 11-0 record. None of Carwin's matches have gone more than 1 round and people do not know if he will gas in later rounds. Frank Mir's striking has improved and he has looked good at 255. Frank Mir's game plan will be to try to tire out Carwin to get him into the later rounds where he can bring him to the ground to use his superior submission skills. Carwin is a beast. His take down defense is underrated and his power has already been demonstrated. You have see great betting value for Carwin at +130 odds with his punching power. We have seen how strikers have improved their take down defense and timed their punches with the take down for some explosive KOs. Carwin's top level wrestling will be give him a chance to stand up and bang with Mir.

***TAKE Shane Carwin +130 odds***

UFC 111 Bet Odds: Thiago Alves Vs Jon Fitch

Thiago Alves -140
Jon Fitch +110
Fight Cancelled as of March 25, 2010 - Thiago Alves pulled from fight.

UFC 111 Bet Pick/Prediction: Thiago Alves Vs Jon Fitch

Thiago Alves has the fearsome striker reputation with 16 KOs in 22 wins and he will be looking to avenge his TKO loss to Jon Fitch at Ultimate Fight Night 5. Jon Fitch with a 21-3 record is underrated probably for his lack of dramatic wins. Fitch's last six matches have gone to decision. Fitch has a solid chin an longer reach than Alves. Thiago's last loss and fight to GSP provides Fitch with a game plan to neutralize Thiago's striking by taking him down for some ground and pound. Fitch's wrestling background and solid take down's will be able to get Alves on the mat for repeated points.

***TAKE Jon Fitch +110 odds --- Fight Canceled/March 25, 2010***
