Good job by the UFC to sign Baron. Since he beat Mach I've been waiting to see him fight again (even though he was getting beaten up until that point a win over a guy like Mach is still impressive).

Plus, we get to see Sokky again, and him vs Cane will be the goods. Like a bunch of people have been saying, this card isn't top heavy, but has really good depth all the way through. Reminds me of 78 in that way.

This card is amazing, I don't get some people. Didn't Bisping headline an event in UFC 78 already. Machida vs Silva is my most looked forward to fight. Silva will be very aggresive and Machida will finish him.

I hate that two of my favorite fighters are trading gloves in this one, but I'm picking Machida. I hope Lyoto can finish this one, it would really get some people behind him if he can clear out Silva.

Leban I'm rooting for to crush Bisping, I've never liked either of these fighters but Leban has been pulling me in lately. I'm hoping they stand up and bang, if Bisping can't finish Leban standing I can't see him deserving a shot against Anderson.

Jardine/Vera is up there. I'm not so convinced on Vera at LHW, and I think Jardine is going to be too powerful for him from the start and lay a whooping on Brandon, but Vera has heavy hands as well.

This Time ... Break It!

I like this card, 6 fights on the main card aswell and they are all solid. Machida vs Silva is going to be a great fight. Both fighters have the same record and the winner should be very close to a title shot.

Hopefully Bisping beats Leben aswell.

I cant see Bisping KOing Leben, however i think Bispings excellent cardio and multiple strikes will win him the fight, Leben has a granite head so the only way i see the Count knocking him out is with a knee.
Bisping isnt going to trade, i see him peppering away with low kicks/jabs, really the outcome of this fight will be decided by the 3rd round where i believe Leben would have tired considerably and the Count taking full advantage.

Donald Cerrone
Glover Texiera
Cub Swanson
