Quentin “Rampage” Jackson vs. Rashad Evans – This will be a good fight, all the trash-talking ends here. Although, Evans is a great athlete, I don’t think he has what it takes to beat Rampage. Evans’ strongest suit is his wrestling skills, but Rampage can sprawl like the best wrestlers out there. So, Evans will have to fight standing. Unlike most wrestlers, Evans has the KO power to finish fights, as we’ve seen in his fight against Liddell. But, Rampage’s boxing is top-notch; he can defend any combinations coming towards him. Rampage will keep this fight standing, and win by out-striking Evans.

Michael Bisping vs. Dan Miller – Bisping’s experience will win him this fight. Although, Miller is a great wrestler, he has nothing to offer once on the ground. His ground-and-pound is weak, almost non-existent. If taken down, Bisping will just get back up and trade strikes with Miller. Bisping can ride this out with strikes, and win by JD.

Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow – If you like superheroes, you will like Todd Duffee. He is built like Super-man but with a questionable record of 6-0. He will have his hands full with Russow. Russow is a powerful wrestler with more experience than Duffee. Duffee will need to keep this fight standing by constantly sprawling away from Russow. I see Russow upsetting Duffee by taking this fight to the ground, and riding it out for the win.

Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs. Jason Brilz – Nogueira has this fight in the bag, he was suppose to fight Forrest Griffin but Griffin pulled out. So, Brilz raised his hand and volunteered to take on one of the best LHWs in the UFC. But, if Brilz pulls an upset, he can become the UFC’s next top prospect. Although, Nogueira has nothing to gain from this fight, he will out-box and out-grapple Brilz for the victory.

Diego Sanchez vs. John hathaway – Coming off a loss against BJ Penn, Sanchez is back where he started. He has to fight his way through the ranks once more. Hathaway has decent takedowns, and good jiu-jitsu skills. But, Sanchez’s strong-point is Jiu-jitsu, so there goes Hathaway’s chances. Sanchez will overwhelm Hathaway with strikes, and finish him on the 2nd Rd.
Sanchez by TKO – Rd. 2
