    UFC Featherweight Championship

  • Mike Russow vs. Dave Herman

  • Leonard Garcia vs. Nam Phan
  • Aaron Simpson vs. Eric Schafer
  • Joey Beltran vs. Stipe Miocic
  • Tiequan Zhang and Darren Elkins
  • Steve Cantwell vs. Mike Massenzio

Here we go!

Maynard v Edgar

Toughest pick to call but Frankie's technical striking and wrestling will be enough to contain Maynard and edge out a decision. Edgar UD

Aldo v Florian

Aldo is a beast! His last outing against Hominick showed some holes in his game especially his cardio, If Florian can capitalize on those mistakes he can finally put a belt around his waist. Florian UD

Sonnen v Stann

Wow! Chael is back! This will be a wrestling clinic despite Stann's vast improvement in his ground game. Sonnen will be too strong and too motivated to get another shot at Anderson Silva.  Sonnen SD

Russow v Herman

Russow is a durable veteran that always finds a way to win not to mention he is undefeated in the UFC, but Pee Wee will pick him apart standing using his reach. Pee Wee TKO 

Guillard v Lauzon

Why did Joe Lauzon even sign up for this? Guillard KO

Maia v Santiago

Maia's improved striking and wrestling will overwhelm Santiago. Maia Submission 

Pettis v Stephens

This fight im excited about. Both always puts on a show and likes to strike,there will be no ground game on this one. FOTN anyone? I will have to go with Pettis due to his technical striking   compared to Jeremy's brawling style. Pettis TKO

Garcia v Phan

Nam's got this! He picked Leonard apart on their first fight and it will happen again. Phan UD

Simpson v Schafer

Simpson will wrestle his way to another decision win. Simpson UD

Beltran v Miocic

This will not get past the first round. Heavy hands will fly and when it connects its over. I see Beltran getting caught by the taller Miocic where all his fights ends due to stoppage. Miocic TKO

Zhang v Elkins

Another import against American wrestler. Elkins' wrestling will be too much for the mongolian wolf to handle. Elkins UD

Cantwell v Massenzio

Both men coming off losses looking to rebound and stay employed. Cantwell hasnt been the same after the long layoff. Massenzio UD
