Posted on Dec 7 2011 - 4:08am by HOV-MMA

On December 10th the UFC invades Toronto for the 2nd time this year, the first year that it’s been legal in Ontario, with another stacked card. Returning from the UFC 129 card are Canadians Mark Hominick, Claude Patrick, John Makdessi, and Yves Jabouin  along with Brazilian Lyoto Machida.

Here are my quick picks for UFC 140: Jones vs. Machida.

Main Card (PPV)

• UFC Light Heavyweight Championship: Jon Jones (C) (14-1, 12 Finishes) vs. Lyoto Machida (17-2, 8 Finishes)

Bones via Elbows from Hell

• Frank Mir (15-5, 11 Finishes) vs. Antonio Rodrigo “Minotauro” Nogueira (33-6-1, 23 Finishes)

Mir via TKO

• Tito Ortiz (16-9-1, 11 Finishes) vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (19-5, 11 Finishes)

Ortiz via Punishment

• Claude Patrick (14-1, 12 Finishes) vs. Brian Ebersole (48-14-1, 34 Finishes)

Ebersole via elbows and hairrows

• Mark Hominick (20-9, 16 Finishes) vs. Chan Sung Jung (11-3, 9 Finishes)

The Rogers Centre almost exploded when Hominick made his heroic 5th Round comeback against Featherweight Champ Jose Aldo back in April. Saturday Night the hematoma kid finishes the Korean Zombie via TKO.


Preliminary Card (ION):

• Krzysztof Soszynski (26-11-1, 21 Finishes) vs. Igor Pokrajac (23-8, 20 Finishes)

The Polish Experiment via TKO

• Jared Hamman (13-3, 12 Finishes) vs. Constantinos Phillippou (8-2, 5 Finishes)

Hamman via decision

• John Makedessi (9-0, 7 Finishes) vs. Dennis Hallman (50-14-2, 43 Finishes)

Makdessi is crafty and exciting but if this hits the ground its Hallman’s world. Hallman via submission.

• Yves Jabouin (16-7, 12 Finishes) vs. Walel Watson (9-2, 9 Finishes)

Watson via submission

Preliminary Card (Facebook)

• Mark Bocek (9-4, 8 Finishes) vs. Nik Lentz (21-3-2, 15 Finishes)

Lentz via Decision
