Maia
50/50 on DHK/Silva
Silva
Beltran
Assuncao(slightly)
50/50 on Pierce/Palhares.

I think Silva(Erick) and Palhares come out and either get the finish early or lose.

Tough dude, ok at everything (wrestling, standup, BJJ).
Been fighting on the local rodeo saloon/fairgrounds circuit. A little older than the typical UFC debutant. The fights of his I found were all grainy and recorded on cellphones.

Alan Patrick has a limited standup game. He does posses a slick front to the midsection. Loads up on a wide left hand. Powerful but inaccurate. Some spinning Capoira stuff, flying knee. All wild a little wide and telegraphed. Anything with power will come from the left side. Left happy.
Quick, powerful double leg takedowns & body lock trips. Smothering, heavy top-control, relentless GnP, great scrambles.
Will take back.

Can't help but look at the American as a sacrificial opponent. UFC sends these guys down to lose. All to build up what Zuffa sees as future Brazilian draws. Not wrong necessarily.

C.J. Keith
Josh Clopton
Keith Wisniewski
Daudi
Bristol Marunde
Joey Gambino
Jeremy Larsen x2

Nuguette by Unanimous Decision.



Very good point, they'd rather the 10-0 Brazilian get off to a winning start, so maybe Whiteley is the sacrificial lamb.

Alan Patrick trains at Jacare's camp (or so it says) so I have to think the guy isn't a total waste. Both he and Whiteley have fought people with mostly unimpressive/losing records so that goes both ways. Though the brazilian is the one who is undefeated. I am going with Patrick.

He's always got a chance but I don't fancy him this week. Maia's a better grappler and looks really strong at 170lbs.
