Predictions for Affliction 2: Day of Reckoning

For the Main Event we have our Fedor vs. Arlovski page

Josh Barnett vs. Gilbert Yvel

Pats Prediction

  • Not much to say about this fight. Yvel does carry heavy hands and could very well KO Barnett. But that will not happen, Barnett is just far too good for Yvel at this point in his career.  I’m calling second round KO for Barnett.

 – Barnett vs. Yvel Odds

Vitor Belfort vs. Matt Lindland

Pats Prediction

  • The Phenom, Vitor Belfort looks to be focused and ready to get his name back in the minds of MMA fans.  He will find a very tough test in front of him as Matt Lindland will look to lay down “The Law” against Vitor. If Vitor cannot find away to keep this fight standing we will most likely see Lindland’s wrestling and strength get the best of him. Lindland via unanimous decision.

 – Belfort vs. Lindland Odds

Renato Sobral vs. Thierry Sokoudjou

Pats Prediction

  • Sokoudjou most likely will come out very explosive early, as Babalu will stay cautious and calm. Sokoudjou has nasty power and will look to keep the fight standing. Babalu will trade shots early and then look to get this fight to the ground and squeeze out a second round submission victory.

 – Sobral vs. Sokoudjou Odds

Chris Horodecki vs. Dan Lauzon

Pats Prediction

  • A battle between two young guns both with bright MMA careers ahead of them. I see a very close and competitive fight, but I’m going to give Horodecki the advantage.  He has fought much stiffer competition thus far and it will show against Lauzon with The Polish Hammer taking a third round TKO victory.
