Grey Dog Software title used to
The UFC is putting on their 20th
Fight Night card in Fairfax, Virginia tonight, so we thought it would be
appropriate to predict the winners of the main and co-main event via Grey Dog
Software’s World of Mixed Martial Arts 2 simulator.
To officially simulate the matches
that are being put forth tonight, we had to download the Modern Warriors 5.0
mod, which was created by their user Tag01.
The main event and co-main event
from the televised card looks as such:
Gray Maynard (8-0-1) vs. Nate
Gray Maynard is the #9 Lightweight
in the world via MMAWeekly.com and #6 at Sherdog.com
Reportedly, Maynard will be in
consideration for a title match against B.J. Penn if he wins tonight.
Nate Diaz was the winner of The
Ultimate Fighter 5 and beat Gray Maynard through the exhibition match process.
Efrain Escudero (12-0) vs. Evan
Efrain Escudero won The Ultimate
Fighter 8 Lightweight and has nine wins via submission.
Evan Dunham recently defeated
veteran, Marcus Aurelio, at UFC 102.
