Predictions: 7 of 10 Winners, 2 Perfect, 425 Points   |   Tied for 244th   |   View

Tonight's the night! Bones Jones and Rampage Jackson will put all the talking aside and see who can actually deliver inside the Octagon.  And as is usual these days for the UFC, you can catch ALL the fights on the card live.  Things are scheduled to kick off first at 6:40pm eastern time for the first 4 prelims on Facebook.com/UFC.  Then at 8:00pm eastern time, make your way over to SpikeTV for two televised prelims.  Finally at 9:00pm eastern time is the main card starting on pay per view.

Your prediction results and leaderboard ranking will automatically show up in any posts made here. If you want to embed your full listing of picks you can do that also.   The top of the leaderboard will be available in the right column on this thread.

Enjoy the fights and good luck in your predictions! 
REMINDER: No requesting of or posting links to illegal streams of the Spike TV or Pay Per View broadcast.

i'm not that psyched about tonight's undercard, but the ppv is a thing of beauty.

win or lose, i'd like to see jones get his chin tested.  we'll know what we've got on our hands after a clean hook lands from rampage -- if jones shakes it off and keeps coming, you could be looking at the GOAT

With only 3 Facebook prelims (instead of 5) and the Spike prelims at 8:00pm eastern, I'm skeptical that they will really start at 5:45pm.  If anyone sees any updated info on this, please pass it along.....

I would love to see Koscheck get KTFO, but I`m not sure if Hughes can take a solid shot.

Kos will KO Hughes. Hes better on the feet and I think he is a better wrestler than Hughes is

It still says 6 EST. Where'd you get 6:40 Wake? Makes more sense but just wondering.
