Let me look at the choices..
Paul Kelly vs. Marcus Davis - I don't think so. I see Kelly trying to smother Davis against the cage up until Davis gets the knock out win. Although, if Kelly tries what he did against Taylor in the first round of their fight and that is make a huge exchange, he will be out cold before the first minute is up. Taylor may be a better striker than Davis but Davis still has great hands and hits waaay harder than Taylor. That could be fun to watch.
Paul Taylor vs. Chris Lytle - Okay, this fight has fight of the night potential although, I don't see it being the fight of the night. If it were pure standup, I could see that sort of deal although, I think once Lytle feels things aren't going his way, he will take Taylor down pretty much at will and submit him. This fight is just tailor made for Lytle because he can hang with Taylor standing and he has a way better ground game.
Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou Vs. Luiz Cane - This one is pretty simple, the fight won't last long enough for it to be considered the fight of the night in my opinion.
Keith Jardine vs. Brandon Vera - Something tells me that this won't be the fight of the night. Vera didn't look so good in his first fight in the 205 pound weight class and I could see both fighters being a little bit tentative.
Michael Bisping vs. Chris Leben - We have a winner! I can see this fight being the fight of the night. I'm picking Bisping to win although, I think Leben has a good enough chin to make this a 3 round exciting fight. If it goes to the ground, I think Bisping will have the advantage but Lebens ground game is good enough to have him not be finished because they are close in that aspect of the game. They are both exciting in most of their fights so I think that this is a reasonable pick.
There you have it.
