Alright Bennett is being a pain in my ass and wants me to breakdown UFC 58. You know I don’t sugar coat anything so let’s get to it. By the way, if you aren’t listening to the radio show daily then you are stupid. Just wanted to share that with you….(www.mmaweeklyradio.com Monday through Friday 9am Pacific/12 Noon eastern and yes it’s free when you listen live you cheap asses)

UFC MIDDLEWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP – RICH FRANKLIN vs DAVID LOISEAU
– I think David Loiseau is at a place right now that not many people can deal with this cat. He’s very strong, he’s very aggressive and I just smell an upset. Not many people can beat Franklin, but since styles makes fights, Loiseau’s style will make it very difficult on Franklin. Just a hunch but I think Loiseau pulls off the upset.

WELTERWEIGHTS
BJ PENN vs GEORGES ST. PIERRE
– BJ Penn will win this fight. Ask yourself this. How is St.Pierre going to win….on the ground? No. On his feet? No. Penn will win this fight because Georges isn’t better than Penn at any specific thing. BJ wins pure and simple. Penn rematches Hughes next.

MIDDLEWEIGHTS
NATE MARQUARDT vs JOE DOERKSEN
– I like Joe Doerksen in this fight. Marquardt just isn’t that explosive and that’s going to be the difference in the fight. Doerksen wins this fight.

MIKE SWICK vs STEVE VIGNEAULT
– I think Swick has his hands full in this one. If I had money to lose I take Vigneault +255, but since this isn’t a betting line, Swick will barely pull it off. This isn’t an easy fight and for the oddsmakers to have this at +575 is flat our retarded. What the hell are you guys thinking? Have you ever seen Vigeanult fight? He can bang. Swick barely pulls it out though.

LIGHTWEIGHTS
YVES EDWARDS vs MARK HOMINICK
Yves is just that good. It’s about time he’s back in the UFC and he will not only get the knockout, but get a chance for his UFC title in his next fight.

HEAVYWEIGHTS
TOM MURPHY vs CHRISTOPHE MIDOUX – What the hell? Do we really care? Who the hell are these guys. Here’s a great breakdown. I’m American I’m taking Tom Murphy.

WELTERWEIGHTS
JOHN ALESSIO – I feel bad for this cat because he deserved the shot at Diego. I picked Alessio to beat Sanchez but I’m just happy that the UFC did the right thing and paid this guy for busting his ass in training. As far as the fighters that pulled out. I don’t think it’s right. Randy Couture had a bad injury against Mike Van Arsdale, Chuck Liddell has fought with a fu%&ked up quad, I’ve had a cracked ankle. You are a fighter you gotta fight, plain and simple. We are all injured when we fight, that’s life get over it. Time to go watch me on t.v. on one of the Spike TV shows as I get more air time now that I’m out of the UFC than when I was on. U KNOW!
