Predictions: 4 of 10 Winners, 1 Perfect, 255 Points   |   Tied for 1092nd

Fight Pass prelims kick off at 7pm ET, followed by FS1 prelims at 8pm and the PPV main card at 10pm. 

Best card of the year so far (on paper), and probably the best we're going to get for some time. 

Enjoy it while it lasts.

A win here really does nothing for Roop, this almost seems prime for Font to win.

Roop's chin isn't the best. His defense isn't the best either. But I don't see him losing this fight.

Very happy for Luke Zachrich. At one point, I went to the same gym as him and even got a 1-on-1 session from him (bc no else showed up). He's one of the friendliest and most helpful people I've known and really works hard each day to make himself and his team better. Here's hoping for him to have a long stay with the UFC.

I hope Tapology doesn't change Font's picture.  It has history.

Damn, I had a feeling that might happen.  Good to see a new prospect @135.  

All three winners have been oddsmaker's dogs thus far.  

I hope that bodes well for Machida and not Davis.
