TUF 17 FINALE PREDICTION CONTEST

Contest time again!  Remember that the winner or winnerS will all earn points towards The Internet MMA BadAss contest and that SWEET championship belt.  What other MMA site has given away FREE prizes for EVERY SINGLE UFC & StrikeForce event for the past TWO years?  And I’ll go further than that…For every prize you win you also get 3 points (and even if you don’t win but tie you get 2 points) towards a FREE championship belt.  Back to today’s contest…The winner will receive this DOPE T-shirt from Baddass Nutrition.  Similar names, similar logos, and we’ve spoken on many occasions about sponsorship, they have yet to pull the trigger.  So if you want MORE from Baddass Nutrition let them know.  Same rules as always, the person who picks the most amount of MAIN CARD picks correctly wins, the tie breaker is that you MUST tell me how the main event ends and in what round.  If you do not and there is a tie, you will be ineligible.  If there is a tie beyond the tie breaker, I will come up with an additional tie breaker from something on the card.

Urijah Faber vs Scott Jorgenson- How can you pick against Faber in a non-title fight?  He always works his way back to the title, and falls just short.  Look for improved striking from Faber since he’s been training with new Team Alpha head coach Duane “Bang” Ludwig.  Faber via decision.

Uriah Hall vs Kelvin Gastelum- I can’t pick against Hall with how dominant he has looked, but I do think Kelvin can win if he is constantly looking for the take down.  Sometimes the bright lights and the magnitude of the situation can make fighters (especially young ones) forget their carefully crafted gameplans.  I would not be surprised if Kelvin grinds out a decision, but I’m picking Hall via 2nd round KO.

Meisha Tate vs Cat Zingano- I think Cat Zingano has better striking than Meisha Tate, and I believe she can hang with Tate on the ground.  I also don’t want to see Rousey v Tate 2, so I’m picking Zingano via decision.

Travis Browne vs Gabriel Gonzaga- I’m a huge Travis Browne fan, he’s as light on his feet as a MW, but Gonzaga’s jitz is nasty, AND he Cro Cop’ed Cro Cop.  Gonzaga via 3rd round submission.

Bubba McDaniel vs Gilbert Smith- I like Gilbert Smith and I don’t like Bubba McDaniel…He did a lot of whining.  However given the size discrepancy, I think this match up favors Bubba.  All we heard about Bubba was how he was one of Jon Jones’ best training partners and he has failed to deliver in every fight, including his fight to get into the house.  But with all that muscle Gilbert Smith carries, it’s almost inevitable that he will gas and Bubba will be GIFTED a decision.

I’d also like to give my RESPECT AND SUPPORT to a man who has done nothing but help MMABADASS.COM, Bristol Marunde…Who has yet again stepped up for Zuffa on EXTREMELY short notice to fight a monster Clint Hester (he stepped up last year to fight Jacare).  I’d also like to say that I am disappointed that Cole Miller vs Bart Palaszewski is on FaceBook (Maximo Blanco will also be fighting on FB and if you haven’t seen a Maximo Blanco fight AND he fights to his ability you are in for a treat).
