Anderson Silva vs. Damian Maia – Maia has no chance in this fight, his stand-up is below average, and his BJJ will not phase the MW champion. Silva will pick Maia apart in the stand-up. Maia will go for takedowns, but will not succeed. He will have no choice but to stand with Silva, and that means getting KOd!
Silva by KO – Rd. 2

BJ Penn vs. Frankie Edgar – I’d like to say that Edgar has a chance in this match, but he doesn’t. This is like pitting the Lakers against my beloved Clippers, it’s hopeless. Penn will showcase his talent against Edgar with ease. Edgar is tough, like most wrestlers, he won’t quit. Penn will drag this out to third or fourth Rd. before he stops Edgar.
Penn by Armbar – Rd. 3

Matt Hughes vs. Renzo Gracie – Hughes will take Gracie down with ease. Gracie is a black belt in BJJ, but he’s not really known for his subs in MMA. Gracie has been inactive for awhile, so all the advantages goes to Hughes. Hughes will go for the takedown, and utilize the ground and pound. But, since Hughes has been slow his last fights, he will not be able to stop Gracie, this fight goes to decision.
Hughes by UD

Terry Etim vs. Rafael Dos Anjos – I’ve lost hope in Etim’s ground game. He’s one of those stubborn fighters who hates learning new things, like Gomi and Crocop. If he can keep this fight standing, he can KO Anjos. However, this is MMA, Anjos will try to take this fight to the ground, if he succeeds, Etim is in trouble. But, I still see Etim winning this one, I don’t think that Anjos’ takedowns is all that great. Etim will land some clean punches, and drop Anjos to the canvas.
Etim by KO – Rd. 2

Kendall Grove vs. Mark Munoz – Munoz is a one dimensional fighter with nothing but wrestling. Grove, as annoying as he is, is a better fighter in this match-up. Grove’s stand-up is decent, and his jiu-jitsu game is above average. Munoz will have a hard time with the lankier, taller opponent in Grove. Grove will sprawl all night, until Munoz get’s tired. Then, Grove will sub Munoz later in the round.
Grove by Anaconda Choke – Rd. 3
