Not a lot of name power here but on paper the matchups should be fairly entertaining.

Interested in seeing how Nedkov looks at 185, he could gas badly.

Really fun main card. Short on star power but intriguing fights.

Undercard has a few intriguing names like Etim, Sass, Grispi and Castillo.

Love both Barao and MacDonald. Not exactly sure that MacDonald is ready for Barao, but I feel he's the more talented fighter.

MacDonald is not on Barao's level yet. He arguably lost to Cariaso and had a tough fight with Figueroa as well. I'm a big fan of his but I expect Barao to get the finish within the first three rounds.

I wouldn't be surprised, but this "Barao is the Jose Aldo of 135" jazz that people have been throwing around is ridiculous.

He doesn't have the finishing ability Aldo does and is nowhere near as dynamic. But nobody at 125 or 135 really is, even dominant guys like Cruz, so it's not all that surprising.

Really looking forward to this card. Love the Porier/Swanson matchup and Paul Sass is in my group of favorite fighters with Cain, Diaz bros, Faber, Hettes, and Chael so I look forward to seeing him fight again.

Not even the striking arsenal or technical ability. I like him a lot, but it's hard not to see that Barao has very exploitable holes.

Jimmo is going to take a beating.
Agreed. His only hope is that he has Joey Beltran's chin and gasses him out.

Like UFC on Facebook, then click their page and there's going to be a part that says UFC Live Streams. Go there.

You can always usually watch the fights on sportsnet.ca if you don't want to deal with Facebook.
