UFC 165: Jones vs. Gustafsson Predictions

Toronto will be a busy town tomorrow night when the UFC sets up shop for their latest stop in the Canadian hub. With headlining bouts between Renan Barao-Eddie Wineland and Jon Jones-Alexander Gustafsson on tap, the card also features eleven other efforts sure to please fans attending the event as well as those tuning in from home. There are nine fighters on the card with one or less losses, a pair of heavyweight sluggers likely to leave a lasting impression on viewers, and some seasoned veterans out to take the next step up in their respectable careers. In general, UFC 165 should be a great show, and an excellent way to close out the company’s 2013 calendar in Canada. (Photos by USA Today Sports Images)

    Brendhan, this is a perfect use of the new “top ten” format, well done.

    Good picks overall but I just can’t get behind Carmont.
    Limitless has looked anything but in his last couple fights (both of whom I thought he lost) and anyone that owns losses to both Ross Pointon and Cyborg Santos (the dude) is not a fighter I’m gonna have high hopes for regardless of his recent record. I think Costa takes this by TKO in the 2nd and starts his campaign for a title shot.

    I also don’t want to pick between Bam Bam and The Eagle but if I had to, I think I’d have to lean toward Khabib only because he’s never been beaten. Then again, Bam Bam has looked like a killer lately and has rightfully earned his spot near the top of the ladder. Either fighter should be next in line for a title shot with a win.

    I got Healey weathering the storm and taking Kahbib down.
    Alex Cacares by submission.
    Carmont by decision, he outwrestles the striker
    Schuab by very boring decision
    Barao by decision
    Jones by tko
