Lyoto Machida vs. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua – This will be an interesting match-up as a rematch. This will be a good fight for Shogun; however, I see this fight ending the same way. But this time, Machida will win more decisively. I still see Shogun being aggressive, and Machida countering with better results.

Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley – This will be a hard fight for Koscheck; Daley is on a 4-fight winning streak with a TKO over Martin Kampmann. But, Koshceck will win via wrestling takedowns. Koscheck will take this fight to the ground, and win via ground control. Daley can KO Koscheck in the first few minutes of the fight. But, he’ll eventually gas, giving the advantage to Koscheck.

Sam Stout vs. Jeremy Stephens – Stout will control this fight all the way through. Stephens has good hands, and has a win over Rafael Dos Anjos. But, it won’t be enough against Stout. Stout is more resilient, and a better all-around fighter.

Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione – Kimbo’s last fight against Houston Alexander was so impressive, that they give him Mitrione. Both fighters have KO power, but both fighters also have questionable stamina. My guess is Kimbo will get tired first, and will get TKOd in the 2nd Rd. But, if Mitrione really wants to win this fight, just take it to the ground.
Mitrione by TKO – Rd. 2

Patrick Cote vs. Alan Belcher – Cote is a strong fighter, but not always entertaining to watch. Belcher is better at stand-up; while Cote is better on the ground. This fight will stay standing, but it will be uneventful
