Main Card:
Light Heavyweight Bout: Anderson Silva vs Stephan Bonnar

Would love to see Bonnar pull off the upset.... but he won't. Silva will allow him to live for one round, but will put him away in the 2nd with a TKO.

Heavyweight Bout: Antonio Minotauro Nogueria vs Dave Herman

To be honest, I see this one not being a runaway. I love Big Nog, but he's a shell of his former self. I think he'll pull it off, but it wouldn't shock me if Herman pulls of a knockout.

Light Heavyweight Bout: Glover Teixeira vs Fabio Moldonado

I think Teixiera pulls this one off. Maldonado has slick boxing, but he hasn't exactly dominated other competition. I think this wil be a tough fight on each side, but I see Teixiera taking this one via 3rd round TKO.

Welterweight Bout: Erick Silva vs Jon Fitch

I think Silva has all kinds of potential - Fitch will try to grind this one out as he typically does, because he can't win this fight any other way. In my view, Silva is a better fighter in all areas BUT wrestling. I see Silva using his standup to wear down Fitch, and eventually score the UD.

Light Heavyweight Bout: Wagner Prado vs Phil Davis

Prado is a beast in his own right, but I see Davis as a potential champion one day if he keeps evolving. I'm going to call Davis by UD.

Welterweight Bout: Demian Maia vs Rick Story

I'm not a Rick Story fan at all - he had a good showing against Thiago Alves, and he's riding that for all it's worth despite being handled by a below-average journeyman like Charlie Brenneman. Story may clinch it up more, but that will play into BJJ-style takedowns from Maia, leading to an eventual 3rd round submission.
