Really wish Boceck/dos Anjos and Siler/Elkins were on the main card, hopefully one ends early so I can watch Siler/Elkins on TV.

These are some good prelims but I imagine it's a given that Cote ends Sakara.

You know what, if he loses to Sakara, he should just retire or at least get released and never be brought back. Sakara is tailor made for him. A striker that will stand and bang with him, but has no chin. If Cote can't stop him and just gets out struck for 3 rounds, I've lost hope for the guy's MMA career. Hopefully Cote comes to fight and gets the finish. The only way this could be an even better match up for him is if Sakara had no hands.

I'm really looking forward to Bocek vs. Dos Anjos. Two lightweights that have improved so much since being in the UFC. It could go either way in my opinion. I'd say when it's on the ground, Bocek is more likely to be on top which will help him a lot if it goes the distance, and it most likely will.

Sam Stout should beat Makdessi. I'd like to see him get another finish. Show those hands of stone Stout!

I agree, I expected him to smash Lawlor a few years ago and he got wrestle ****ed, then I expected him to KO Le and he didn't, if he loses to Sakara never bring him back.

And if Sakara loses, he should probably retire, poor guy just can't take a punch to save his life.
