UFC on Fox 2 - Fight Predictions

UFC on Fox 2 is happening tonight, with a stacked main card including two fights which could very well shape the future of both the UFC Middleweight and Light Heavyweight divisions. The winners of which will certainly be first in line for title fights against two of the sports most dominant champions. This has been more than hinted at by UFC president Dana White.

Rashad Evans vs Phil Davis
Former UFC Light Heavyweight champion Rashad Evans has been vying for a title shot with nemisis Jon Jones for some time now. Phil Davis, it appears, is the final hurdle. While Davis has an amazing wrestling pedigree, Mr Wonderful has not impressed me with his standup. I believe Rashad Evans will be too quick, too clinical in his standup game and will school the young up and comer, who will try struggle to get Evans to the mat. Rashad will be able to dictate the terms of the fight and will eventually finish the young wrestler in the second round.

Chael Sonnen vs Michael Bisping 
This is a very interesting matchup between two fine Middleweights. Bisping definitely carries an advantage standing, while Sonnen has shown that he can wrestle with the best. It is a tough one to call, but I must go with my instinct which tells me that Sonnen will be able to get Bisping to the ground and into his world, where he will put some standard Sonnen ground and pound on him and eventually finish the British superstar and earn another crack at Middleweight Kingpin Anderson Silva
