Bisping/Leben since it's going to be 3 round war! I'm predicting a tough UD for Bisping.

My vote for FoTN. Two great strikers that like to bang. I expect this fight to be fast with a very little to NO feeling out. I also expect Sokoudjou to pull out the KO in the first round. I seriously doubt this fight makes it to the second.
Which is why I think this is more likely KO of the night, rather than FOTN. Probably won't last long enough to be FOTN. Will be exciting while it lasts for sure though.

I gotta go with Taylor vs. Lytle.

Baron vs. Miller from the undercard.

EDIT: I've voted, but I've changed my mind, I'm going with Bisping/Leben, the atmosphere will help make it even better aswell.

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.

If Cane/Sokoudjou lasts over four minutes I think it could be FOTN because Davis/Taylor got FOTN and it ended around that time, but I am not sure if Sokoudjou is going to last that long so I will go with Lytle/Taylor.

I voted Bisping/Leben for all the reasons already mentioned.

However, I personally am most excited to see Jardine/Vera b/c I think both will want to make a statement after their last fight and I am hoping it ends with a Vera TKO.

I voted Bisping Vs Leben but the Marcus Davis fight is a close second.

I voted Jardine and Vera. Both of them have so much to lose, which makes it exciting for me.

I voted Bispling/Leben but this entire card should be really solid, Im pretty excited about most of the card and even though it lacks the marquee match ups it still should be a great night of fights.

Vera/Jardine worries me because if the Vera that we saw last shows up he will get destroyed, dont let the Wandy fight fool you Jardine is a tough SOB.

I haven't really enjoyed many of Vera's fights. I'm sure this one will be just as lackluster as the previous fights. Hopefully Jardine's performance will make up for it.
