Injuries to Anthony Pettis and Josh Koscheck (which also resulted in Demian Maia being pulled from the card) have made the UFCs fourth trip to Brazil this year a very lackluster one. Speaking of Pettis, Jordan is doing his best impression of the former WEC champ and staying off the UFC 163 predictions as Im riding solo once again. As always you can hit me up on twitter @LynchOnSports if you “Agree” or “Disagree” with my picks or leave your opinions in the comments section below. Jose Aldo vs Chang Sung Jung (Featherweight title fight) James Lynch, TSN.ca (@LynchOnSports): The UFC featherweight champion looks to remain undefeated inside the octagon as he squares off with the entertaining "Korean Zombie" on Saturday night. Original title challenger Anthony "Showtime" Pettis bowed out due to injury earlier this month, giving way to the 26-year old having this opportunity of a lifetime. Many pundits were critical of the decision to put Jung in the title fight, but clearly his exciting style and his international fan base aided in UFC matchmaker Joe Silvas decision to book this match up. Stylistically this should be an exciting match up, with both fighters known for their exceptional standup skills while also being well versed on the mat. Physically Jung holds a slight height and reach advantage, but the question is can he utilize that against the very speedy Nova Unio product. No doubt Jung will also have to be aware of Aldos powerful leg kicks, something previous opponents Frankie Edgar and Urijah Faber had trouble with. The other issue is his time on the sidelines; generally fighters enduring long layoffs in between fights dont perform well. Consider if the fight heads into the championship rounds, will the Taekwondo black belt have the cardio to keep up? I dont see it happening. Aldo should have every advantage in this fight and this should be his fight to lose. I see the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt finding his range in the second, and knocking out the Korean Zombie. Aldo via second round knockout Lyoto Machida vs. Phil Davis This matchup is a bit of a head scratcher in terms of the landscape of the 205-pound division. Since losing to Jon Jones at the end of 2011, the Machida has taken out two top light heavyweight contenders in Ryan Bader and Dan Henderson (a close decision, but he still won). Instead of a title shot, the Brazilian fights Davis which is a considerable step down. The 28-year-old Davis has one edge in this fight and thats his wrestling, being a former NCAA Division I wrestler at Penn State. The Blackhouse member however proved that he can neutralize takedowns against top wrestlers, in his wins over Bader and Henderson. Bottom line, this is Machidas fight to lose and while I dont think he will finish the Alliance MMA fighter, hell certainly out strike Davis on route to a unanimous decision victory. Machida via unanimous decision Cezar Ferreira vs. Thiago Santos Unless you had the patience to watch the entire two seasons of TUF Brazil on Youtube with subtitles, dont worry if youre scratching your head as to who either of these fighters are. Ferreira won the first season of TUF Brazil in the middleweight tournament and has trained mainly with UFC middleweight standout Vitor Belfort. Fellow Brazilian Santos participated on the second season of TUF Brazil, losing to finalist William Macario in the elimination rounds. Ferreria clearly is the more well rounded fighter and considering Santos is moving up in weight to take this fight on short notice, the edge has to go to the 28-year-old Brazilian jiu-jitsu blackbelt. I see the Ultimate Fighter winner landing more strikes over three rounds and having his hand raised at the end. Ferreira via unanimous decision Thales Leites vs. Tom Watson Four years is a long time, but the wait is finally over for former UFC middleweight title challenger Leites who returns to the octagon to face off with former BAMMA middleweight champ Watson. Winning six of his last seven fights has earned the 31-year old Brazilian his UFC homecoming and no doubt hell be looking to put on a show in front of his home country. The English fighter Watson meanwhile bounced back from a split decision loss to Brad Tavares in his UFC debut, knocking out Stanislav Nedkov back in February. This is a classic matchup between standup fighter and grappler, with Leites having 13 submission victories in 20 fights. While no doubt this should be a competitive matchup, a slight edge has to be given to Watson who has been very active inside the cage compared to the Brazilian who hasnt fought since March of last year. Watson should be able to keep this fight standing and out point the Brazilian Jiu-jitsu black belt over three rounds. Watson via unanimous decision John Lineker vs. Jose Tome With flyweight champ Demetrious Johnson dispatching yet another title challenger this past weekend at UFC on FOX 8, this matchup between a pair of fellow countrymen could produce the next contender in the 125-pound division. Despite Tomes stellar 33-3 record, I see the former Jungle Fight bantamweight champ using his superior striking and speed over three rounds to stop his foe sometime in the third round for his fourth straight victory. Lineker via third round TKO Undercard Picks: Maglahes, Nunes, Moares, McCall, Yahya, Oliveira, Andrade Also be sure to tune into the “Weigh-In” on TSN Radio 1290 Winnipeg every Saturday as myself (@LynchOnSports) and Jordan Cieciwa (@FitCityJordan) go toe to toe in discussing the hottest topics in Mixed Martial Arts. Discount Basketball Shoes .ca looks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. Wholesale Basketball Shoes . I cant pinpoint a date, but I do remember a player from my youth. Brian Downing was with the Chicago White Sox at a time when I listened to every game I possibly could on the radio. That particular season the late great Harry Caray was calling the White Sox games. http://www.wholesalebasketballshoes.us/ . LOUIS -- The New Orleans Saints looked like a team playing out the string. Wholesalle Basketball Shoes China . -- If this was Aaron Gordons final home game at Arizona, and it almost certainly was, then he went out in style. Cheap Basketball Shoes Online . The (11-11-4) Jets are seventh in the Central Division with 26 points. Fifth place Dallas and sixth-seeded Nashville also have 26 points, but the Stars have three games in hand on Winnipeg while Nashville has two. LINCOLN, Neb. -- Nebraska ran on 51 of its 64 plays from scrimmage against Fresno State in a performance reminiscent of Tom Osbornes pound-the-ground teams of yesteryear.Only Air Force, Army and Navy -- all triple-option teams -- attempted fewer passes than the Cornhuskers the first weekend of the season.On Monday, Mike Riley couldnt remember a game hes coached where his team threw so little. He joked that he would have to go back to his playing days when he was the quarterback at Corvallis (Oregon) High to find a game where his team attempted only 13 passes.The coach was smart. I couldnt throw very well, Riley said, laughing.The Huskers (1-0) generated 292 of their 406 yards on the ground in their 43-10 win over Fresno State on Saturday. Dont expect the same run-pass breakdown this week against Wyoming (1-0).We liked the rushing yards, he said, but we didnt have anywhere near the balance we need as we go forward in the passing game.Tommy Armstrong Jr. threw a beautiful 57-yard touchdown pass to Alonzo Moore off play-action in the second half. That play accounted for half of the Huskers passing yards. Armstrong wasnt sharp otherwise, completing only 5 of 10 passes. Backup Ryker Fyfle was 1 for 3.I thought we could run, but I didnt envision that at all, offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf said. I think its good for our team, but we have to be able to hit some more throws. The way we were throwing wasnt giving me much confidence to throw it all.Devine Ozigbo had 17 carries for 103 yards, Terrell Newby 11 for 56 and Armstrong 11 for 42. The HHuskers ran for five of their six touchdowns against an opponent that ranked 117th against the run in 2015.ddddddddddddebraska passed only once in its first 21 plays, and its 13 total attempts were the fewest since the Huskers had the same number in a 41-31 win over Miami two years ago.Riley, who came to Lincoln last year with a reputation for developing passers, will be able to implement more of his pro-style offense once four-year starter Armstrong leaves. Riley recognizes Armstrongs running ability and has said he plans to incorporate it into the offense more than he did last year.But Riley also knows that leaning so much on the running game wont fly against the stout rushing defenses in the Big Ten.The Huskers were celebrated for being run-heavy in their 37-29 Foster Farms Bowl victory over UCLA last December. Nebraska ran on 62 of its 81 plays for a season-high 326 yards against the 98th-ranked rushing defense.Riley said the difference between the bowl game and the Fresno State game was that Armstrong was an efficient 12 of 19 passing for 174 yards against the Bruins.Had we looked sharper, I might be all right with how many times we threw (against Fresno State), Riley said. When we threw against UCLA, it was pretty effective, good percentages. It felt a lot better even though there were only six more attempts, I suppose. It just felt better.---Online: AP college football website: http://collegefootball.ap.org ' ' '
