Heavyweight Championship bout: Junior dos Santos (c) vs. Frank Mir (KO) -- yup. Don't think Mir will get it to the ground, so he's screwed.

Heavyweight bout: Cain Velasquez vs. Antonio "Bigfoot" Silva (KO)-- That giant Moai-sized head is just too big a target.

Heavyweight bout: Roy Nelson vs. Dave Herman -- (TKO) Herman is starting to hit a bit of a wall as his competition gets better. I look for Big Country to take him down eventually and smother him from top control, ending the fight with elbows from his favourite position.

Heavyweight bout: Stipe Miočić vs. Shane del Rosario (KO) -- All things being equal I like del Rosario in this fight -- I think Miocic is kind of a brawler and del Rosario should be able to exploit the way that he leaves his chin hanging out. But the layoff time for del Rosario is definitely a concern. Still, I'm gonna go with him.

Heavyweight bout: Stefan Struve vs. Lavar Johnson (sub) -- flip a coin -- guy who gets tagged by pretty much everyone vs. a power puncher, or guy who got mounted and nearly submitted by Pat Barry vs a guy with dangerous submissions.

Featherweight bout: Diego Brandao vs. Darren Elkins (sub) -- Brandao is definitely a pretty unpolished prospect and I think it's possible that he gets a bit of a wakeup call here against a guy capable of grinding him out. But ultimately I don't think Elkins is all that impressive so I think Brandao can pull something out.

Lightweight bout: Edson Barboza vs. Jamie Varner (KO) -- RIP Jamie. A more interesting question is how many phantom nut shots / eye pokes he'll complain about before getting knocked out.

Middleweight bout: Jason Miller vs. C.B. Dollaway (dec) -- don't really care, but it's hard to bet on Mayhem after that last performance.

Welterweight bout: Dan Hardy vs. Duane Ludwig (dec) -- Ludwig is a better technical striker, he'll frustrate Hardy for 2+ rounds, Hardy may eventually try to take it to the ground like he did when Lytle embarrassed him, but by that point it'll be too late. It will still get FOTN and Dan Hardy will get another shot in the UFC because he's a (British) "warrior" who "brings it every time"

Lightweight bout: Jacob Volkmann vs. Paul Sass (dec) -- I think a guy with stifling top control like Volkmann spells trouble for Sass, who still strikes me as a bit of a one-trick (well, maybe two tricks) pony when it comes to grappling. It won't be pretty but it'll be a clear-cut win for Volkmann. I just hope he doesn't bust out the hilarious political commentary afterwards

Light Heavyweight bout: Kyle Kingsbury vs. Glover Teixeira (sub) -- Kingsbury got embarrassed by Bonnar on the ground, I kinda doubt this is gonna go much better for him.

Featherweight bout: Mike Brown vs. Daniel Pineda (TKO) -- don't think Brown's got it anymore, and Pineda has looked pretty impressive thus far.

I really like Cigano, but I have a feeling Mir will find a way to win.

Also about the pictures, I think that is just what Mir looks like now since he bulked up for UFC 107.

Gotta love Mir for this alone:

More importantly, there's a UFC event targeted for his hometown of Nottingham in late September and he'll surely be a part of that card. I still find it funny how the UFC tried to sell Hardy as a "knockout artist" before his fight with GSP

No, but I think there is the option to watch UFC.tv through facebook for the PPV events as well as FuelTV coverage. The straight Facebook fights are still free.

When I follow the link from the ufc site it asks me to log in and then it wants to charge me $3 to watch it.

Stream is great for me. I'm using Firefox, although Chrome usually works good too.

Glover Teixeira looked sensational in there. Not overly surprisingly, but the dismantling of Kingsbury was beautiful.

Good gritty win for Mike Brown, too.

Glover did pretty much what I expected. I like Kingsbury, but he's a pretty low-end light heavy. Glover's performance was still impressive, he never let up once and showed a lot of various skill.

This next fight should either be a boring win for Volkmann or hopefully we'll see the Sassangle again.

Well, colour me surprised. I didn't think Sass was good enough to catch Volkmann like that. Still wanna see a Sass/Cody McKenzie showdown (even though I'd rank Sass a fair bit ahead of McKenzie after this win)

By the way if anyone is wondering why Arianny isn't ringside, it's because she got arrested for domestic violence earlier today

She should be on the undercard.
