I don't know how competitive some of these fights will be but there's a few individual fighters I'm looking forward to watching. I'm always good with an Erick Silva fight, even though he has been somewhat of a disappointment.

Not too familiar with a few of these Brazilian fighters.

I know anything can happen in a fight but Machida/Barrao are arguably 2-3 tiers above their opponents.

Carlos Junior vs Cummins, Dias vs Elkins & Silverio vs Magomedov should be pretty competitive.

Looking forward to Sasaki fighting. he looked pretty solid in his UFC debut.

Yeah, Cummins vs Carlos Jr is the one I have my eye on. I think Cummins is actually pretty good, but Carlos looked good on TUF Brazil.

Machida, Erick Silva, and Barao should get wins to keep the home crowd happy.

Machida against a wrestler not named Weidman or Jones? I expect a highlight reel finish. C.B. is a solid fighter but Machida is a wrestler's kryptonite.

Yup both Barao and Machida should destroy their opponents.

I'll actually give a fighting chance to Mitch Gagnon against Barao (though Barao should win), at least more than Dolloway whom I don't think has the right tools to beat Machida. Against Machida you need to be able to cut the ring and fight at kicking range. CB's standup is still limited to Power-punching.

This event needs to be called " THE DEATH OF C.B. DOLLAWAY" because that's what this is, baring some act of god he has ZERO chance and the same thing can be said for the Co main event I truly hope Mitch Gagnon wins I want to see Canadian fighters win but I mean these guys are no different then cows being lead to the slaughter house

This is going to be an absolute MASSACRE

Mitch Gagnon is going to get destroyed.
One loss to a great fighter in Dillashaw and people forget how dominant Barrao was. I fully expect to see a crazy sharp and motivated Barrao. He should end this fight in round one. Barrao is a bigger betting favorite than Machida.

For the betting crowd.

Machida -700
Barrao -750
Silva -450

Bet 100$ and win prolly the easiest 58$ of your life.

I don't trust Silva at those odds, and Rhodes isn't terrible.

Really depends on Rhodes' toughness. Silva is looking to murder his opponent in the first round or gas out failing to do so.

It will most likely play out like the Bader fight. Machida tagged him from the outside and Bader eventually got frustrated and rushed into the mouth of the dragon and was slept.

Yeah, and he will probably win doing so. Just can't justify -400 odds on that.

This is an entertaining event on paper. I wont be shocked to see barao start slow then whoop that ass in round 2/3. While I don't like barao he is a beast and I haven't forgotten how good he is. That brutal loss to dillashaw only makes me think how good dillashaw is and how would the fight have been if he didnt get rocked as bad in round 1.

Yeah, Barao is still damn good. Some good fights to be made in that division with Dillashaw/Cruz/Barao.

Ultimately Brazil cards tend to be heavily slanted towards the hometown fighters. The Brazilian fighters get given far lower level opponents, which kind of takes away from the appeal of the card. I'll watch it, but I'm not crazy about it.

Other than the big 3, I don't think this can be said for the rest of the card. Honestly, this is one of the most competitive Brazilian cards I can remember.

Anik says there's going to be a "big announcement" during the main card tonight.

Rumours on Twitter the last few days of Rampage Jackson returning to the UFC. Wonder if they're going to make that official tonight.

Why? Rampage is terrible. UFC is really desperate for ratings.
