No time for more picks than this (just became a dad Tuesday morning), but I'll throw you guys a curveball and try to dazzle with my analysis, eventhough I'm beyond exhausted.

Whitehead over Randleman, 2nd round submission

Why? A few reasons. Randleman has had one fight in the last 3 years due to a life-threatening staph infection in 2007 and has not been the same since. That one fight was a 3 round decision over an undersized Ryo Kawamura with a less than stellat 9-5-2 record. I also don't know if his game has evolved since his stunning upset performances earlier in his career. Super strong wrestling is not enough anymore (see Tito Ortiz/Sean Sherk).

Also, Whitehead has only one loss (Alex Paz) on his improving record (23-6) to anyone who isn't a top level fighter. Those other 5 losses are to Tim Sylvia(x2), Brandon Vera, Keith Jardine, and babalu. Before his loss to Sobral last year, he was on a 13 fight win streak. I think this Xtreme Couture standout is going to get a bit more recognition after this one.

If anyone is watching the WEC fight tom night would you like to do me a favor??? Count how many MusclePharm logos you see. If you see it, it counts once, not how many times they show it. Like if you see it on a fighters shorts thats one time. if you see it again dont count it. Three fighters will be sponsored by them and then they will have two commercials.

Better get my predictions up:

Robbie Lawler vs. Jake Shields
Andrei Arlovski vs. Brett Rogers
Nick Diaz vs. Scott Smith
Phil Baroni vs. Joe Riggs

WEC

Mike Brown vs. Urijah Faber

I got my prediction, so I'm 1-0 on the strikeforce card. I almost got it perfect (this finish), if Whitehead just could've finished the choke from the mount.

I once again stunk it up with my picks only getting 2 out of 5 right, this is probably the main reason I'm glad I don't gamble. I think I just need to start copying all Mav's picks.
