This Saturday night in California promises fireworks. That’s because UFC 121 is offering up a top-notch cast in drool-worthy matchups. The main event of the evening, for instance, has Brock Lesnar putting his heavyweight title up for grabs against the dreaded Cain Velasquez. Who will walk out with the belt?

GRACIEMAG.com isn’t sitting on the fence and offers up the newsroom’s predictions for the fights on the live pay-per-view card. Opinions varied, between the nine who posted their bets this times around. In some of the predictions there was a split in the wagers, like the one between Tito Ortiz and Matt Hammill, with “Bad Boy” Tito taking just one of the votes.

In the bout between debuting Jake Shields and Martin Kampmann, there was unanimity favoring the Cesar Gracie black belt. There was also a split as to the main event, but the majority predict Cain Velasquez will be the new champion.

How about you, reader, who on the main card do you have winning?

Check out the scorecard and don’t skip leaving your opinion below:

Cain Velásquez dethrones Brock Lesnar 6 to 3
Jake Shields 9 to 0 Martin Kampmann
Paulo Thiago 6 to 3 Diego Sanchez

    My picks:
    Cain via first-round knockout
    Jake Shields via arm-triangle in round two
    Paulo Thiago via rear-naked choke in round three
    Matt Hamill via split decision
    Brendan Schaub via second-round TKO

    Brock round two ground n pound- Cain throws too many combinations and you can’t stand that still in front of Brock
    Shields round 3 by sub- kampmans stand up is great, shields needs work as after this fight George or Koscheck are both horrible fights for him
    Tiago silva decision – tough fight but Tiago takes it
    Hamill split decision
    Schaub round 2 KO- shaub has speed and power, he hits hard and is not easy to hold down or sub, gabriel’s chin and endurance are suspect

    Cain via tko for sure. Late second round but I’m thinking the third. He definitely has the stamina to take the fight in the later rounds. He’ll succeed where Carwin failed.

    I hate to say it but I have to go with Shields. I’m predicting a decision win here.
