Dana said that all FOX cards will have good line-ups on them and will be practically treated like PPVs

Gah seeing Hendricks knock out Fitch still makes me smile. But he's got a tough task in Kos. Both guys are pretty similar but Kos has more experience and so I think he'll take it. Super excited for this. Lots of good fights and its free. Plus I love the Diaz brothers.

I don't see any reason why Miller shouldn't be able to wrestle out a decision.

This. Guy also has a great chin and Diaz' pitter patter boxing isn't going to hurt him. Don't see either guy getting finished in this fight either, probably goes to the distance. Speaking of which, is this one 5 rounds? Should be.

Going with a different approach here, and just mostly picking who I want to win the fight.

Lightweight bout: Nate Diaz vs. Jim Miller - Odds are on Miller in a 5-round decision, but if there is a finish to this fight it will be Diaz. I dont see what way Miller can finish Diaz, so it's just a matter of Diaz figuring out a way to end the fight in 25 minutes. Diaz by sub in the 3rd or 4th round? Sure, why not.

Welterweight bout: Josh Koscheck vs. Johny Hendricks - Close fight. I'm a fan of Kos so I'll hope he can handle Hendricks.

Middleweight bout: Rousimar Palhares vs. Alan Belcher - With the roll he's been on, hard to bet against Palhares right now. Tough fight back for Belcher.

Heavyweight bout: Pat Barry vs. Lavar Johnson - Johnson can end the fight at any time, but I think Barry will be able to use his kicks effectively and stay out of trouble. Great fight.

Preliminary card (Fuel TV):
Lightweight bout: Tony Ferguson vs. Michael Johnson
Flyweight bout: John Dodson vs. Tim Elliott
Welterweight bout: John Hathaway vs. Pascal Krauss - I've actually always found Hathaway to be a bit over-rated, mostly due to his glossy record and his win over a dreadful looking Diego Sanchez. He might still win this fight, but I'll take the upset here.

Flyweight bout: Louis Gaudinot vs. John Lineker - I like what I've seen from Lineker. Since Gaudinot was the guy on TUF he'll get a bit more love, but I'll take Lineker.

Lightweight bout: Danny Castillo vs. John Cholish
Featherweight bout: Dennis Bermudez vs. Pablo Garza

Preliminary card (Facebook):
Bantamweight bout: Roland Delorme vs. Nick Denis
Middleweight bout: Mike Massenzio vs. Karlos Vemola

I think his boxing will definitely hurt Miller. It's the same with Nick, the "pitter patter boxing" isn't going to knock anyone out but they never stop throwing punches and they add up.

Diaz has really improved his stand up and he has a huge reach advantage in this fight. If Miller can't get this fight to the ground, then I think Diaz will easily win.

He might get caught in a triangle?

I want Diaz to win but I don't see any way he catches miller in a sub. Jims' Bjj is fantastic, he'll defend all the way.

Diaz's best chance is to turn this into a boxing match, IMO.

I guess there's always a possibility that he submits a guy with fantastic BJJ who's never been submitted, but it isn't likely.

He came close to being tapped out by Bendo no?

Miller is tough as nails. Its hard to see him losing. But Ive been very impressed with Nate's improved standup lately. Should be a great fight.

This. If you're constantly getting hit and constantly reacting, it screws up your breathing and gasses you out VERY quickly. He doesn't have dos Santos-style power, but forcing your opponent to bite down and wince every 4 seconds goes a long way towards making sure you win the fight.
