The only guarantee on this card is that Sass will win via Sassangle.

The best argument for keeping Cody McKenzie around for at least one more fight is so that he and Paul Sass can have a Special Move Showdown.

Also I was trying to remember why Keith Wisniewski sounded familiar and then I remembered that he's one of the original members of the "Aoki ****ed me up" club

I've seen worse cards offered up as a PPV. I think the UFC is making the right move with this free card...a title fight with a less-than-known champion and contender and a nice mix of fights on the televised card...cards like these, to me, are a good way to force the UFC to continually elevate the quality of their PPV main cards.

Gotta love free cards, especially one with so many potential entertaining fights. I guess they are throwing us a bone in between two PPV weekends.

I'm not a fan of either Cruz or Mighty Mouse but I can't wait for this fight, it should be the fastest pace of any fight in UFC history.

I think it is dumb that the UFC is having a title fight on versus. If you want to build the bantamweight title, the ideal would have been to place it as a co-main to other more prestigious titles (like they are doing with the FW title). That would have ensured the broadest exposure and also increased the value for the PPV buyers. If they insisted on having this on free t.v., then having this fight as the main event of UFC 138 would have made more sense than versus. First of all, Spike shows draw almost double Versus shows. Also, throwing a bone to the English/Europeans in the form of a title fight would not have been a bad idea. I think the UFC's strategy was likely to suck up to NBC sports, and that is completely irrelevant at this point.

The bantamweights are the worst division in MMA right now. There is not much depth, and a lot of the talent is dispersed through Bellator & Dream. The UFC has it in tough trying to promote it, but yeah I agree it shouldn't be buried on a Versus card that not many will watch.

Some of you guys still have Hougland fighting Easton. But that has been changed to Byron Bloodworth. So make your changes with your picks!

Main card:
Bantamweight Championship: Dominick Cruz (c) vs. Demetrious Johnson (dec) -- The Cruz Special. Respect to Mighty Mouse who's done really well despite being the smallest guy in the smallest weight class in the UFC, but he's not really bringing anything to the table that Cruz didn't deal with when he tapdanced over Faber, Benevidez or Jorgensen.

Heavyweight bout: Pat Barry vs. Stefan Struve (sub) -- oh man... what's worse, Barry's submission defence or Struve's striking defence? I'm gonna guess that after suffering another crushing KO against Browne, Struve is actually gonna fight smart this time and tie Barry up before choking him out.

Welterweight bout: Anthony Johnson vs. Charlie Brenneman (TKO) -- kinda back and forth on this one. Brenneman definitely impressed in his fight against Story but he was facing a guy on short notice who'd been prepping for a different opponent. He's gotta rely on his wrestling to win and the only guy who's really made Johnson's wrestling look bad is Josh Koscheck. I don't think Brenneman's quite at that level. Johnson's gonna have a huge size advantage too.

Lightweight bout: Matt Wiman vs. Mac Danzig (dec) -- I think Wiman's gonna be pissed after letting the fight with Siver slip away. And even if the stoppage was bad in the first fight I still think he probably would have gotten that guillotine eventually.

Preliminary card:
Lightweight bout: Yves Edwards vs. Rafaello Oliveira (dec) -- Don't think Yves has got it anymore. Oliveira's not great but he should be able to wrestle and top-control his way to a win.

Lightweight bout: Michael Johnson vs. Paul Sass (TKO) -- interesting style matchup here. Sass pulls guard like crazy which ordinarily I would say is a pretty bad idea against a wrestler with strong GnP. But I'm pretty sure I remember from TUF that Johnson's submission awareness was kind of iffy. That said, I'm gonna bank on him making improvements in that area since he was on the show.

Lightweight bout: Shane Roller vs. TJ Grant (wrestling)
Welterweight bout: Josh Neer vs. Keith Wisniewski (being a better fighter)
Bantamweight bout: Walel Watson vs. Joseph Sandoval -- no idea who these guys are
Bantamweight bout: Mike Easton vs. Byron Bloodworth -- ditto

e: Jeez Barry and Mighty Mouse aren't the only guys with a big size disadvantage this weekend

Didn't realize Hougland was scratched, I'll take Easton if I can.
