UFC 161: Barao vs. Wineland takes place at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Renan Barão (ic) vs. Eddie Wineland
Renan Barao is so well rounded and dangerous that he will come out victorious in this fight. Wineland has a lot of heart, great punching power and technique, however I feel the durability and diversity of attack that Barao has in his arsenal will earn him a decision win, three or four rounds for Barao.
Maurício Rua vs. Antônio Rogério Nogueira
Shogun has a tendency to fade later in fights, so I give the third round to Little Nogueira. However, the first two will be won by Shogun via superior striking. Shogun wins by decision in this all Brazilian affair.
Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson
Similar fighters in that they both have powerful rights and great wrestling. I think Evans will avoid the H-Bomb and get some takedowns to earn a decision, two rounds to one in this fight. Actually a split decision.
Pat Barry vs. Shawn Jordan
Pat Barry is a such an unbelievable striker and has gained so much knowledge and experience fighting top dogs in the UFC that he wins this one, and gets a big KO.
