Machida vs. Bader is the main one for me though. Really big fight for both guys. Still don't know what to make of Bader as I don't really count the Jackson fight, but he's shown promise in the past. As for Machida it wasn't that long ago that people thought he was going to hold the belt for a long time.
Lauzon-Varner is another good one, two guys that finish fights. 7 of Lauzon's last 9 fights also gave him submission or fight of the night.
Cole Miller on the card as well, when the heck was this?
Dana said the winner of Shogun and Vera gets the next title fight, not sure what Vera has done lately to deserve that but I suspect he'll get killed by Shogun anyway.
Pulling for Bader over Machida, not sure he'll be able to do it but he's got my support.
Ditto for Varner, mostly because that might set him up for a shot at Cowboy Cerrone next. Apparently those two have a feud going that dates back to the old WEC days. Cowboy is one of my top 3 favorite fighters...(behind Rory and whoever is fighting either of the Diaz brothers)
