UFC 164: Fight Predictions: Which fighters do you think will get the 1st round finish?

My first round finish picks ....

Josh Barnett vs. Frank Mir ... From what i have seen from both fighters i think that Frank Mir gets the 1st or 2nd round Submission. Let me know what you think in the comments section ... and if you think the fight will go another way post a comment with your prediction in the comments.

Erik Koch vs. Dustin Poirier ... From what i have seen from these two fighters ... i think that Erik Koch will get the 1st round KO/TKO ... Agree? Disagree? Again Discuss in the comments section and let me know what you think ... Maybe i'm wrong ... Unlikely but it is possible.

Magnus Cedenblad vs. Jared Hamman ... From what i have seen from Jared Hamman, he has taken a ton of punishment and has been finished in his last two fights; in this fight i think that Magnus Cedenblad will get the win in the first round via 1st round vicious KO. Agree ??? Disagree ???

Nikita "Al Capone" Krylov vs. Soa Palelei ... I predict a first round assassination by "Al Capone". Nikita Krylov is only 22 years old and has taken minimal damage over his previous outings in the european circuit; whilst also displaying a high level ground game accompanied by decent striking skills ... well enough to handle Palelei in my opinion. This fight will be a first round submission win for Nikita Krylov and it will be a guillotine submission. Do you agree with this prediction? Disagree? Explain your reasoning in the comments section if you disagree ...

Pascal Krauss vs. Hyun Gyu Lim ... To be honest, i don't really know anything about these fighters but going of their records and some clips on youtube ... i predict a violent KO/TKO in the first round for Hyun Gyu Lim. Agree? Disagree? Discuss in comments section.

Chad Mendes vs. Clay Guida ... I think Chad Mendes beats Clay Guida by first round TKO by ground and pound. Do you agree with my prediction? Disagree? Debate in comments section...

Brandon Vera vs. Ben Rothwell ... Brandon Vera gets the first round KO/TKO, not much to analyze here really, Ben Rothwell is slow as fuck and Brandon Vera is not as slow so ... he will land the KO punch first. Agree? Disagree? Post your fight predictions in the comments.

I don't think there will be a finish in any of the other fights ... if you disagree and think that there will be a finish in say ... Bendo vs. Pettis then post your predictions in the comments section.
