I don't see Rashad making it out of the 2nd round.

Odd card in that there are a bunch of fighters I really like but they are scattered all over and nothing really jumps out at me outside of the main event. It has card of the year potential because in almost every fight there is at least one guy who is bonus-capable.

There's only one fight I don't care about seeing on the card, but there's also only one must-see, top card caliber bout.

Also, Ben Rothwell is a good guy and has had a good career but he has no business still being on a main card after his recent performances.

I really want Rashad to Ruin Jon's Special Night once again, it's the funniest possible outcome. If he does then it's going to come down to speed, I think.

I'm a big Jones fan, but I hope Rashad can put up a fight and maybe even win.

Torres/Mcdonald could be quite good. A clash between the guy who was the first face of the division, and a guy many think could be the next face of the division.

Yup, if I could only see two fights on the card this would be #2. Should be awesome to watch.

I got a funny feeling Rashad is going to win, Jones might be the heavy favorite but this one has the smell of an upset.

Also hoping for a big win for Rory MacDonald, I want him to become the next big star!

He won't need the full 10 minutes.

Evans over Jones
MacDonald over Mills
Rothwell over Schaub
Torres over McDonald
Hominick over Yagin
Bocek over Alessio
Browne over Griggs
Brown over Thompson
Njokuani over Makdessi
Danzig over Escudero
Wisniewski over Clements
Blanco over Brimage

Edit: I dislike how aggressive the auto-correct feature on Safari browser is with capitalized words that it doesn't recognize as proper nouns.

I'd pick Torres/McDonald and MacDonald/Mills as the two I'm looking forward to the most. I don't even care about the main event since I'm 100% certain that Jones will win. I do look forward to seeing Rashad get put to sleep either by KO or choke hold. The other main card fights don't interest me a whole lot but the 4 fights on FX should be great.

Unfortunately, a buddy of mine has his buck'n'doe on Saturday night and since I'm in the wedding party I can't really skip it. Another buddy is going to record the PPV though and I'll see it on Sunday, hopefully before having the results spoiled.

See, I think MacDonald/Mills is just as predictable as the main event.

And as predictable as a Jones win is, the guy is amazing to watch and every one of his fights is a must-watch IMO.

Dear Rashad,

I am impartial to you. I don't hate you but I'm not a huge fan. But come Saturday, I will be cheering my ass off for you to win, hopefully via KO.
