UFC111 picks + some art

If you haven't been checking out the Daily SketchJAM then you have been missing most of my art postings. I am currently working on a new short story for The Phoenix Comic-Con, so I will be quiet with art postings here for the next couple weeks, but I post there everyday along with a couple other fantastic artists.

I sketched this and then the awesome Derek Toye threw some colors on it.

This was a commission for

Here are my real quick, non-researched UFC 111 picks - Winners in Bold.

Georges St-Pierre vs. Dan Hardy: St-Pierre is annoyingly great at everything, he doesn't have knockout power but could catch Hardy in a submission or most likely will grind out a decision.

Shane Carwin vs. Frank Mir: A lot of people are picking Frank Mir here but I like Shane Carwin. Mir got destroyed by Brock Lesnar in their last fight and has since beaten a very beatable Cheik Kongo and now he gets right back into the title picture? Mir did have an impressive win over Nogueira but even that looks suspect after Cain Velasquez dismantled Big Nog last month. So I am going with Carwin via TKO.

Jon Fitch vs. Ben Saunders: Saunders is getting a big step up in competition on short notice to take on Fitch since Alves was refused a license to fight. Fitch had been training for a short stocky kickboxer and now with only 3 days notice is taking on a very long fighter with an incredible thai clinch game. I have always liked Killa B and I've always found Fitch to be a very tough and durable opponent, but very boring as well. This fight either goes to Fitch by decision or Saunders by TKO. I'm counting on Saunders.

Nate Diaz vs. Rory Markham: Diaz via submission, Round 2

Ricardo Almeida vs. Matt Brown: Brown via TKO.
