Main Card Predictions
Melvin Guillard vs. Joe Lauzon - Amazing match up and a candidate for FOTN. Guillard wins by tko in the third round.
Leonard Garcia vs. Nam Phan - Second candidate of the card for FOTN. Phan wins via unanimous decision. And please when we predict that a fighter will win by unanimous decision, don't ask in which round. Yes, you know who you are.
Chael Sonnen vs. Brian Stann - Sonnen's comeback fight after getting his head popped and his heart broken by Anderson Silva and then some. Stann has classically lost against wrestlers but if the hook or the uppercut lands, it's over for Sonnen. Still, Sonnen wins by way of... Well, laying on top and controlling the top. Unanimous decision for Sonnen.
Jose Aldo vs. Kenny Florian - As much as we love and support KenFlo for being an amazing athlete and a proud member of the Latino community, do not expect nothing different than Aldo vs. Faber. Aldo dominates the fight in all aspects and wins by TKO in the third round.
Frankie Edgar vs. Gray Maynard - Finally we get to see this score being settled, well, the title at least. If Frankie wins there is still a tie between them two. Although Dana White already said they would put all this behind them and move on with the division if that is the case, these two warrios will always have a pickle until the score is finally settle.
Gray Maynard takes home the UFC lightweight belt via unanimous decision.
