A regular segment on The Fight Network’s original TV series’ “Before The Bell” and “After The Bell,” Randy Couture has his “Natural Picks” for this Saturday’s UFC 76 “Knockout” - live from the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. - locked in.


Here’s what the expert analyst is predicting:


Light Heavyweight : Chuck Liddell (20-4) vs. Keith Jardine (11-4) – LIDDELL

"Somebody’s going down in this one, more than likely Jardine. I think the knockout will come in the first or second, depends on Chuck. If he’s a little tentative at first it may take him a little longer. Jardine’s gonna wade in. That’s what he does.”

---------------------------------

Light Heavyweight: Forrest Griffin (14-4) vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua (16-2) – GRIFFIN

“I think he’s going to beat him every round. I just think the rules are different, and there’s a few other factors I’m not going to bring to light right now.”

---------------------------------

Welterweight: Jon Fitch (19-2-1) vs. Diego Sanchez (19-1)

“Diego makes me pay every time I go against him, but I’m gonna go with Fitch.”

--------------------------------

Light Heavyweight: Lyoto Machida (10-0) vs. Kazuhiro Nakamura (11-6) – MACHIDA

“Machida’s gonna beat him up.”

----------------------------------

Lightweight: Tyson Griffin (9-1) vs. Thiago Tavares (16-0) - GRIFFIN

“Tyson’s going beat him, It’s going to be the fight of the night again. It’s going to be a brawl.”

Couture's predictions are not usually very wide of the mark. His remarks about Griffin and Shogun are most intriguing.

but isn't Forrest huge underdog? I've seen Shogun high lights in PRIDE and he just destroyed people with knees and kicks

going conservative but I would pick the favorites to get the victories and probably by KO.

*and idea on who the winners of Liddell/Jardine and Shogun/Griffin would face?

and I wonder if there is any truth to that Wandy/Liddell fight happening in December.

They said at the start of the show that Liddell fights Silva in December if he wins tonight. Presumably the winner of that will then get a title shot.

Couture's predictions are looking good so far.
