LMelvin Guillard/Jamie Varner and Todd Duff/Phil De Fries are the fights that stick out to me on the preliminary card. Should be good fights.


I don't like to do predictions but I suppose I will...

JDS by ko/tko

Jim Miller by submission

Tim Boetsch by decision

Blecher by ko/tko

Leben by ko/tko


Leben fights are always awesome. I kind of like Okami so I wouldn't mind being wrong with that pick. I don't care for Lauzon so I hope my pick is correct. And I like both JDS and Cain so I'm okay with picking that fight incorrectly. JDS clearly has the better resume but I think some people may be underestimating Cain. JDS didn't really have to do anything in the first fight and Cain definitely has the power to take JDS out. I just hope the fight goes longer than the last, not that it's likely to get out of the 1st round even if it does so it would probably only be a minute longer.

All in all, I like this card. If there was one fight I'm not that excited for it's the Boetsch fight. Watch that end up being the third best fight. I don't see any way it's better than the main event and I doubt it'll be better than a Leben fight.

Leben is a dump truck bulldozing forward. His fights are never boring.

Been looking forward to the Cain vs dos Santos rematch for the last year. Cain is in my list of top 3 favorite fighters and I can't stand Santos.

Why the Dos dislike. Too goody two shoes?

This will be a good fight. I don't care who wins but I think Dos wins again. Cain needs to avoid the power of Dos and get an early take down.
The longer the fight goes the better for Cain.

I was excited about Guillard vs Varner on the last card, and still am. Should be exciting, Guillard is explosive as hell. Todd Duffees return will be interesting, last time I saw him Overeem was beating him down. Of course Reem beats lots of guys down.

It's really the classic, striker vs wrestler match up. Cain should stand with JDS for about 2 seconds and shoot. JDS has some of the best boxing in all of MMA, and has pretty good take down defense. Then again he hasn't faced a wrestler like Cain. I agree the longer the fight goes the better for Cain, he never gets tired. I just hope it's better than the last fight.

Yup. That one punch power can ruin a good fight.

I told myself I wouldnt make picks this time since I did so bad on the last two but it's too much fun. I got: Cain, Costa, Belcher, Leben.

Did you leave out Lauzon vs Miller so you didn't 100% lie to yourself? Lol I kid man. Btw I have picked horribly the last 2 cards, I'm going 5 for 5 this time. Book it! Lol

Hahaha good catch. I got Lauzon. I was really looking forward to Davis vs Griffin as the co main on this card.
