But wait, that's not all... you also get all the preliminary card fights streaming at Facebook.com/UFC beginning at 5:30pm eastern time. Come on down to Tapology and discuss the fights.

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.

I'm rooting for Ellenberger, but I think Shields will out grapple him, and maybe even submit him.

sheilds by dec he'll just out wresle ellenberger gonna be kinda boring fight with little to no damage. Riddle wins a close one. Belcher most likely by ko/tko bout mid of the 1st

This isn't to say I'm not excited about this card. I am. I love all mma. However, I feel bad for the people of New Orleans. This is a really weak card.

I have pretty bad internet right now and I am not at all interested in watching the fb prelims in crappy quality. Anyone know if it will be possible for me to buffer it at a higher quality and then go back and watch it later?

If anyone goes 12 for 12 on this event, I'll be extremely impressed. This is one of the most random assortments of little-known or newly-signed UFC fighters I've ever seen.

I'm just hoping to go 8 for 12, 66% and keep my % intact.
