    I am looking extremely forward to UFC 109 and what some of these fighters have to offer as many of them are fighting for their UFC careers…

    Melvin Guillard is a very hard hitting Lightweight who once fought in the Welterweight class; something Torres knows and has already stated he plans to fight Guillard “on the ground”. Expect Guillard to try to keep it on his feet, constantly sprawling to avoid Torres’ takedown attempt. Also, Torres might be a little nervous making his debut in the Octagon against such a well-rounded lightweight.

    Mike Swick does not lose two fights in a row and will be absolutely focused for this fight. Paulo Thiago (28) made his UFC debut in 2009 after fighting with Brazilian organizations Jungle Fights and Grand Prix Planaltina, winning ten straight fights in his home-land. In his debut in February 2009, he knocked out Josh Koscheck and earned “Knockout of the Night” (lucky shot) but momentum quickly shifted as Jon Fitch defeated him at UFC 100, giving Thiago his only loss. In his most recent fight, Thiago got a decision victory over Jacob Volkmann at UFC 106 but TheCoach was not overly impressed as Volkmann was a UFC rook. TheCoach will be convinced Thiago is a contender to fight GSP if he beats Swick… if not, he’s just another over-rated fighter with a stacked fight record from fighting Joe-Nobody and Johnny-Who in wanna-be organizations.

    TheCoach feels that Marquardt has the upper-hand because if Sonnen wants to take it to the ground with his dominate wrestling skills, Marquardt will have many opportunities for submissions. If Sonnen wants to stand, Marquardt hits harder. Sonnen may be better at his style of martial arts but Marquardt is a better all around fighter and it will be evident come February 6th.

    Best of luck to everyone betting and all fighters on February 6th
