9 unbeaten fighters, 5 different nationalities (though most American), Bellator & WEC vets - on the whole it seems like they've got a good group together. The records are good this year too - lots of guys with 8-2, 7-1, 6-0 sorta records.

My top 5 picks are...
Myles Jury (TUF vet)
Dakota Cochrane (beat Varner)
Daron Cruickshank (beat Ricci)
Jordan Rinaldi (beat Bermudez)
Mike Rio (beat Juusola)

Also interested to see how Jon Tuck does against these Americans, and also how Krause does after going 0-3 in WEC & Bellator.
