    Main Card:

    (C)Chris Weidman Vs. Lyoto Machida

    (C)Ronda Rousey Vs. Alexis Davis

    Stefan Struve Vs. Matt Mitrione - OFF due to Stefan Struve health issues.

    Uriah Hall Vs. Thiago Santos

    Marcus Brimage Vs. Russell Doane

    I have Weidman taking Lyoto down, wearing him down, and finishing with a TKO. Rowdy Ronda with a KO. Stefan Struve with a submission ( I know, but his record is too good), Uriah Hall via TKO or Submission. I can't really decide which one because his striking and grappling are both crafted well. I have Russell Doane by decision. I think he will wear down Marcus during the first two rounds. Let's see what the BHW UFC fans have to say, I'd love to have some good discussion going on live.

    I'll go for Weidman..

    Though Lyoto has the skills but Weidman knows how to fight skilled fighters.

    Update: I was correct on my 'prediction' that he couldn't compete with the stamina of Russell Doane. Russell won by split decision.

    Update: Stefan Struve and Matt Mitrione fight is OFF. He experienced heart palpitations and a near faint spell. His doctors advised him not to fight.

    Although Machida is the more skillful and experienced fighter, I don't the he has the drive to pull it off "I think the Dragon is nesting" :)

    I just don't think he is in the "now". He beat Mark Munoz (which Weidman made easy work of a year or two ago), but Phil Davis out performed him last year, no contest. So I agree.

    Live Update: Winner by UNANIMOUS decision Uriah Hall. He broke his toe in the early first round. It's real bad and the bone is sticking out. The doctor talked to him twice, but Uriah fought on, and continued to overcome Thiago's offense. Uriah even almost got a karmura at the end of the third round.

    Live Update:

    My prediction for Ronda Rousey was right. It happened in the first 16 seconds of the first round. Ronda hit her with a hard right hand, a knee, then grappled into a hip toss. After the hip toss, Ronda hit Alexis Davis 9 times with hard right hands. It was called at 16 seconds. Alexis Davis didn't even know the fight was over when she was able to get up.

    UPDATE:

    Chris Weidman won by UNANIMOUS decision. He stood with Machida, it didn't seem like Machida could take his power. He stuffed a lot of take downs, but couldn't sprawl fast enough. Lyoto Machida got a lot of sig strikes in and defended himself well on the ground.

    Yep, he did come back like crazy. He was landing strikes and combinations like he used to. Though, Weidman could take most of it. Even at the end, he invited him to exchange some more. That's the heart of a champion. Props to Machida for going the distance though like that.
