My picks:

Main card:

205 lbs.: Lyoto Machida (C) vs. Mauricio Rua - for UFC LHW Championship
170 lbs.: Josh Koscheck vs. Paul Daley
155 lbs.: Sam Stout vs. Jeremy Stephens
265 lbs.: Kimbo Slice vs. Matt Mitrione
185 lbs.: Patrick Côté vs. Alan Belcher

Under card:

185 lbs.: Tim Credeur vs. Tom Lawlor
170 lbs.: Marcus Davis vs. Jonathan Goulet
170 lbs.: T.J. Grant vs. Johny Hendricks
265 lbs.: Joey Beltran vs. Chad Corvin
170 lbs.: Yoshiyuki Yoshida vs. Mike Guymon
185 lbs.: Nick Catone vs. John Salter

Had to look up Chad Corvin's record on Sherdog as I'd never heard of the dude, but he has a serious resume. Might not have beaten any big names (though he does have a win over Rico Hattingh, a guy with a very impressive grappling background and a win over Trevor Prangley to his name), but it's a career record comparable to the early career of Shane Carwin. The longest of his fights has lasted is 1:39. In 6 fights, only 3 of them have lasted longer than a minute. He has 4 T/KO's and 2 submissions due to strikes to make up his perfect 6-0 record. He's 6'5" and weighs 253lbs. I think he could make a serious impression on this card. Can definitely see this one making it onto the main card telecast.
