Predictions for UFC 110: "Insert Sarcastic Australian Stereotype Here"

G'day mate! Seems the UFC has ventured on down unda for their latest installment, and it looks to be a decent night of walloping for convicts and Americans alike. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and Cain Velasquez get to pretend that Brock Lesnar gives a crap about defending his belt, while the once-feared Wanderlei Silva and the once-relevant Michael Bisping get another shot at salvaging their waning career. So put another shrimp on the barbie, 'cause here are some predictions!
  • Mirko CroCop gets another shot in the Octagon, and as it's not on US soil (and under the watchful eye of an athletic commission with a post-fight drug test requirement), he actually stands a chance at winning.
  • I bet Ben Rothwell thinks back on those days when he dominated in the IFL and gets all wistful and teary.
  • Keith Jardine's still alive? Ryan Bader via ground and pound.
  • George Sotiropoulos may be a local, but Joe Stevenson will likely be the crowd favorite an account of him looking very much like a koala bear.
  • Bisping is young and despised. Silva is old and beloved. Ultimately, that means that the person everyone doesn't want to win will win.
  • Velasquez is young and moderately liked. Nogueira is Nogueira, and he is going to kill him.
