End of the road for Aldo, Frankie is going to be too intense for him.

I think that Rashad's and Lil Nog's striking is honestly quite even. Rashad has way better wrestling, while Lil Nog is a little better at BJJ. However, that BJJ advantage ain't gonna net him the submission win over Rashad. If Brilz ( who should have won ) can do what he did against Lil Nog, you better bet Rashad can. Granted, Lil Nog did show slightly improved TDD against Bader and Davis. However, that isn't gonna be enough to stuff Rashad's takedowns.

Overeem is gonna destroy Big Foot. Not much discussion here.

Aldo vs Edgar...ah. Despite how confident I seem to be about Aldo winning this bout, I honestly am not sure who is gonna triumph come UFC 156. Aldo has decimated less than stellar competition, yet has also looked mediocre in the last round against Hominick and the fight against Florian. I think the weight cut is draining his cardio too much, and that won't work out well fighting Edgar. Aldo has superior stand-up, that is for sure. Edgar's boxing is good, but he gets hit way too frequently, and Aldo hits HARD. Thing I'm unsure about is Aldo's TDD vs Edgar's TD. If Edgar is able to take down much larger wrestlers like Maynard and Henderson, chances that Aldo manages to stuff all of Edgar's takedowns are slim. Also, hopefully Aldo's cardio doesn't cost him the fight.

That poster looks like it was made in MSPaint and Instagramed. Terrible.

Great main event! But Bigfoot vs Overeem is the dumbest match-up I've seen in awhile.

I don't think it's dumb, it's a tune-up fight for Overeem and it knocks Bigfoot down to the prelims/card openers.

Evans via Decision.

Reem via body kicks, assuming hes smart enough to not break his hand on bridge troll's face

Aldo via decision after kicking Edgar's legs to hell. No way does Edgar finish this fight. Hes only finished what? one fight? maybe two? No power.

Anyway am I the first person to think: "WTF? Aren't Overeem and Bigfoot both Blackzillians?"

EDIT: Damn Rauno!
Bigfoot left as soon as Overeem entered due to them being matched up eventually (that giant head can foresee the future but ironically not the heavy punches).

Overeem will make that head explode. If a LHW in Mike Kyle could plant a nasty hook and drop Silva..

Edgar, Evans, Uberreem. Easy and predictable.

Evans beats Nogueira by decision in a tougher than expected fight.

Overeem beats that diseased, Quasi Moto assbag by TKO in the first.

Aldo beats Edgar by TKO in the third. I want Aldo to fail as much as the next guy, but he's seriously underrated, especially on this forum.

That poster gets me amped up for this card, esp. Rashad/Lil Nog, if Lil Nog shows good TDD he'll beat Rashad to the punch every time, maybe even finishing him. The Main Event is gonna be epic!
