My Unofficial UFC 74 Preview

This is my first attempt at a full blown preview please comment and leave suggestions on how I can make it better.

Gonzaga vs Couture
I am itching for this fight to happen its gonna be a war as both men are extremely confident. I dont see Couture getting submitted at this stage in his career, he’s just too smart to fall victim to a choke or armbar. Although Gonzaga is 16 years younger and 20 pounds heavier than Couture, I believe Couture will improvise and find a way to win.
Prediction- Couture by Decision

Georges St. Pierre vs Josh Koscheck
Sorry GSP fans but Im calling the upset here. I think Kos is a very underrated fighter and I think he’s gonna suprise GSP. I see Kos using his wrestling ability to control the flow of the fight, and use his ridiculous takedown ability. It would be a monumental upset, but I think its going to happen. GSP has great takedown defense as displayed in his second fight with Matt Hughes, but I dont think it will be enough in this fight. I think he’s gonna get him down and pound him out. Of course if GSP mauls him and ends the fight quickly, which is entirely possible, then ill look like an idiot and eveybody can flame me in the comments.
Prediction- Kos by TKO GnP

Joe Stevenson vs Kurt Pellegrino
I just dont believe that Kurt Pellegrino has the skills to compete with Stevenson. Pellegrino’s 2 losses were by armbar and RNC, and I think Stevenson will sink in a RNC or Guillotine sometime late in the first round.
Stevenson by Choke

Kendall Grove vs Patrick Cote
Cote is a solid experienced fighter and he will show up expecting to win. Cote has a legitimate chance to win this fight, but I just cant see it going that way. I see grove landing solid punches and ultimately ending th fight with a second round KO.
Prediction- Grove by KO

Roger Huerta vs Alberto Crane
Huerta will win this match any way he wants to, it wont be contest. Crane is just completely overmatched in this bout. Huerta is beast who has been rolling through his opponents. Crane is a virtual unknown, but he does sport an impressive 8-0 record, who knows he may shock everyone, but not likely.
Huerta by TKO

Alright thats the main card, of course the Clay Guida fight I feel should be on the main card. I will discuss the undercard tommorow.
