Main card: (PPV)

Lightweight Championship bout: Frankie Edgar (c) vs. Benson Henderson- Wow, really tough fight to predict here. If it stays on the feet I think Edgar takes this and I don't think Henderson will be able to take Frankie down and keep him down enough to win.
Light Heavyweight bout: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Ryan Bader- Being back in Japan, Rampage is going to be pumped for this one. I think we'll see more of the old Rampage in this fight and I don't think that's good for Bader.
Heavyweight bout: Mark Hunt vs. Cheick Kongo
Welterweight bout: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Jake Shields
Middleweight bout: Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch
Featherweight bout: Hatsu Hioki vs. Bart Palaszewski
Lightweight bout: Anthony Pettis vs. Joe Lauzon

Preliminary card (FX):
Lightweight bout: Takanori Gomi vs. Eiji Mitsuoka
Bantamweight bout: Norifumi Yamamoto vs. Vaughan Lee
Middleweight bout: Riki Fukuda vs. Steve Cantwell
Bantamweight bout: Takeya Mizugaki vs. Chris Cariaso

Preliminary card: (Facebook)
Featherweight bout: Zhang Tiequan vs. Issei Tamura

Edit: I've changed my picks so much for this card, lol.

This is a tough fight for Mark Hunt, and it's sad that his nice little winning streak will probably come to an end. I think Kongo wrestles him to a decision.

You should pick the rest of the bouts because they are automatic losses if you do not.

Wrestles, nut shots, fence grabs, and short holds him to a decision.

Kongo is the single dirtiest fighter in the UFC.

Michael Bisping in the Sonnen fight grabbed the cage, shorts, punches to the back of the head.... he's up there too.

Not too mention the "accidental" knee to Jorge Rivera's face.

Wow, I thought I would be one of the very few to pick Bart over Hioki. Guess not.

Bisping's awesome, I wish he would've planted a knee in the face of everyone in Rivera's corner after Jorge's team's ridiculous pre-fight bashing of him.

I agree. Rivera and those other clowns deserved it.

When this card starts, and the PrideFC theme doesn't play, I'll be a little less happy with the world.

Lightweight Championship bout: Frankie Edgar (c) vs. Benson Henderson - I still might switch this up, but I think Henderson has a decent chance. He's much stronger than Edgar, and I think he'll be able to grind him down over 5 rounds. My only issue is whether or not Henderson has the speed to get to Edgar. If not, Frankie will be able to slowly pick him apart for 25 minutes. The scenario I'd be most shocked by in this fight is Edgar finishing Henderson, I just don't see it happening. Because of that, I'll go with the guy who can slap on a choke or ground and pound the other guy out, and that's Henderson.

Light Heavyweight bout: Quinton "Rampage" Jackson vs. Ryan Bader - Rampage should be able to keep things standing, and if he does he can catch Bader a few times. Might be another close decision, but Rampage should take it.

Heavyweight bout: Mark Hunt vs. Cheick Kongo - Good on Hunt to stay in the UFC and get to this point, but I can't see him winning this fight.

Welterweight bout: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Jake Shields - I guess I'll take a bit of an upset here. Akiyama should be able to keep this fight standing, and I like anyone's chances against Shields when it's on the fight. Shields obviously has ways to win this fight and is rightfully the favorite, but I'm an Akiyama fan so I have to justify it to myself.

Middleweight bout: Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch - Probably will end up being a sloppy boxing match, and I guess I'll go with Okami.

Featherweight bout: Hatsu Hioki vs. Bart Palaszewski - Only because it's in Japan. Hioki was not impressive in his debut and Bart can easily win.

Lightweight bout: Anthony Pettis vs. Joe Lauzon - Love watching Pettis fight. Will probably be FOTN until Henderson/Edgar steals it away.

Bantamweight bout: Norifumi Yamamoto vs. Vaughan Lee

Henderson brought in Cruz to help mimic Edgar.

Quote:
“I’ve got the same guys training with me that I had in the beginning,” the 28-year old continued. “For this fight I am bringing in UFC Bantamweight Champion Dominick Cruz to lend us a hand. He’s a bit quicker and faster than I am. He can emulate Frankie and help me deal with the speed and footwork Edgar possesses. Other than that it’s all the same guys, a bunch of hungry guys trying to make a name for themselves.”

I just hope that they bring in Lenne Hardt (aka The Screaming Lady) for Gomi's fight because I always felt she was at her best introducing him.

Unfortunately, I don't think anything like that is going to happen.

This is what Dana told MMAJunkie earlier this week:

Quote:
"People keep asking me, 'Oh, will you play the PRIDE music? Will you do (this or that)?' No, this isn't PRIDE. It's the UFC. The UFC is coming to Japan, and what the people in Japan are going to see is what they see on television, if they're UFC fans."
Rampage has come out to the Pride music before and the UFC usually lets him do whatever he wants so even if Dana is against it, he still might use the Pride theme song as his entrance music.
