Predictions for UFC 108: Evans vs. Silva

 For the Main Event we have our Rashad Evans vs. Thiago Silva prediction page.

Junior Dos Santos vs. Gilbert Yvel

Pats Prediction

  • A heavyweight Showdown between heavy handed Brazilain Junior Dos Santos against Dutch Striker Gilbert Yvel.  The UFC has given Yvel a gift and signed him to fight.  Its hard to respect a fighter that has had so many tasteful incidents throughout his career.  Hopefully he has turned a new leaf and left that in the past.  He faces another hard hitting striker in Dos Santos.  While both can stand and strike, Dos Santos is the better overall fighter.  Junior will overwhelm Yvel in all areas and will eventually finish the fight.  Dos Santos via second round T/KO.

Joe Lauzon vs. Sam Stout

Pats Prediction

  • Here we have lightweight battle between jiu jitsu ace Joe Lauzon and a heavy handed Sam Stout.  This is not a good match up for Stout.  He likes fights where his opponents stand and trade shots throughout most of the fight.  Lauzon is a more technical fighter with top notch grappling and submissions.  I see Lauzon exchanging shots early with Stout then looking for his opportunity to take it to the mat.  Joe Lauzon via first round armbar.      

  – Lauzon vs. Stout Odds

Dustin Hazelett vs. Paul Daley

Pats Prediction

  • Here we have Grappler versus Striker.  Hazelett has some slick submissions in his arsenal with 9 of his 12 wins by subs.  Daley has taken 17 of his 22 wins by T/KO.  Basically we know what each fighter needs to do in this fight.  Hazelett needs to stay away from a slug-fest and Hazelett wants to keep this fight standing.  I’m giving the edge to the grappler.  Hazelett may struggle some in the first round, but will eventually get this fight down.  Dustin “McLovin” Hazelett via second round armbar.

Duane Ludwig vs. Jim Miller 

Pats Prediction

  • Stylistically this is a similar matchup to Hazelett vs. Daley.  Duane Ludwig being a heavy handed striker.  Miller a solid grappler with submissions and wrestling.  If Ludwig can catch Miller with a solid punch he can no doubt win this fight.  I think Miller is to smart and will use his wrestling and exploit Ludwig’s terrible ground game.  Jim Miller via second round rear naked choke.

  – Ludwig vs. Miller Odds


  • Martin Kampmann over Jacob Volkmann by decision.

  • Cole Miller over Dan Lauzon by decision.

  • Vladimir Matyushenko over Steve Cantwell by submission.

  • Mark Munoz over Ryan Jensen by T/KO.

  • Mike Pyle over Jake Ellenberger by submission.

  • Rafaello Oliveira over John Gunderson by decision.
