George and Kevin from Uncut Sports “weigh in” on the welterweight fights featured on the upcoming UFC 158 card.
Canadian Nick Ring might be one of the sleepers in the middles. His only loss was a decision to Tim Boetsch, he’s well rounded and can beat you several ways. However, his opponent Chris Camozzi is just as well rounded and on a three fight win streak. Expect a technical fight from these two.
Winner of this one, will face the winner of the GSP vs. Diaz fight, it’s pretty simple. Johny Hendricks is on fucking tear. He’s dropping welterweights like a bad habit, with knockouts over Kampmann, Fitch, Waldburger, and Brenneman in 4 of his last 7. I think he’s the scariest thing in this stacked welterweight class. Nonetheless, Carlos Condit is a very smart and methodical fighter. Condit needs to do exactly what he did to Diaz to beat Hendricks.
However, in my opinion Hendricks packs more power and can end it in one shot. If Hendricks quickly works his way to the inside, and avoids the leg kicks of Condit, he can win this fight. Vegas seems to think, that’s what will happen, and so do I.
