Leben is going to beat Bisping, and Silva is going to be the first man to defeat Machida!

Taylor Lytle is going to be one of the best fights of the year. I hope Lytle stands and bangs with him, no doubt that Lytle would beat his ass on the ground.

I've got Bisping beating Leben and THIAGO ending Lyotos' reign of terror. Good card, depth wise.

Leben brings a strong gameplan to the fight i think its going to be a good striking fest but i see Bisping knocking him out in the second.

Shit man, Baron vs Miller and Hardy vs Gono will be fireworks. Sucks that they're pre-lims, but oh well. Bielkheden vs Liaudin should rule, too.

Machida is going to tool Thiago Silva something vicious. While Silva's a good fighter, he is nowhere near Lyoto's level. His sloppy ass stand-up won't help him and he won't be able to take Lyoto down. If he does, Lyoto will just get back up.

As for the rest of the card, Sokky, Vera, Bisping, Davis, Lytle, Bielkheden, Carwin, Etim, Eklund, Gono and Miller.
