Exactly, it'll be one quick night if things go right .

Plus they're all well balanced and relevant fights too.

Okami and Lombard are both long time top 10s with an intriguing style matchup ... grappling wise Okami's got a stifling top game and Lombard's Judo is top notch. On the feet it's Lombard's bombs vs Okami's range and technical jab. I'm more a fan of Okami and think he can edge it out but this is a tough matchup and it's equally likely he's going to sleep.

Hunt vs Struve is just guaranteed fireworks. Either Struve gets KOd again Nelson style and Hunt starts making a run for the title(!) or Struve chokes him out. I'm picking Hunt ftw.

Wanderlei vs Stann is just a guaranteed KO, if anything else happens the universe would explode. I think Stann's got this one.

Gomi and Sanchez, again great matchup, one of Japan's most famous legends against a perennial top 10 LW. Sanchez should get this but it'll be a fun one, probably a fast paced decision.

And Siyar vs DHK, both well rounded, fast rising WW contenders, very tightly matched up. Siyar has been more impressive lately though, so I got him.
