Yusuff vs. Barboza
Edson Barboza, DEC
Barboza looked great against Ige, and he should have won the decision. Yusuff is a tough fight, but if he wons it, can you imagine him against Stephens, Kattar or Emmett ? Lots of new exciting matchups for him. Even if he loses, who doesn't want to see him fight Cub Swanson, or even Alex Cacerès ?

Rothwell vs. Tybura
Ben Rothwell, DEC
Rothwell is slow as hell, but he is tougher than Tybura and lands harder... I like Rothwell but he's not very exciting to watch recently.

Perez vs. Almeida
Thomas Almeida, TKO, R3
Almeida has been kind of a disapointment in the UFC thus far in terms of potential, but Win or lose, he is still very fun to watch.

Spivak vs. Aspinall
Tom Aspinall, TKO, R1
Aspinall impressed the **** out of me last time. It's a little bit soon, but he looks like a top heavyweight talent thus far, and Spivak, who is a decent fighter, will answer a lot of questions.

Chikadze vs. Morales
Giga Chikadze, DEC
Wow, great fight. Both very talented, but I've been impressed with Chikadze. Of course he is a great striker, but he really showed a well rounded game in his UFC career, and he is improving every fight. But Morales is a warrior, this will be his toughest test thus far...

Barboza vs. Amirkhani
Edson Barboza, TKO, R3
Poor Barboza. After losing a VERY controversial decision to Ige, he deserved another top 15 fighter. But from Stephens to Yusuff to Amirkhani, this is disapointing... I mean no disrespect to his opponent, Amirkhani is a decent fighter, but he isn't ranked and a win over him does nothing for Barboza... If he loses tho, it will be a disaster, probably the end of what is left of his title hopes.
