Predictions: 8 of 13 Winners, 3 Perfect, 490 Points   |   Tied for 98th

The fighters weighed in this morning/afternoon and everyone's set for Saturday night. 

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 6pm ET before switching to FS1 at 8pm. PPV main card touches down at 10pm. 

Not expecting a terribly competitive main event, but the co-main should be fun and the rest of the main card has some good stuff going on.

@skelli

An all time great? Really? Is Rockhold an all time great in your world? Or Anthony Pettis? Or Matt Serra???

Cause Bisping gonna lose that belt really fast and all he has to show for on his record are wins vs mediocre competition, a weird win over 45 year old Anderson Silva and this crazy upset.

I feel Bisping can beat Jacare and likely Romero as well, Bisping could really keep this title for a while unless a mad Weidman is rising.

Remember when Tim Kennedy beat Bisping? Holy **** I forgot all about that.

Rockhold is a man of his word. He promised a "never see before KO" ... Bisping putting someone to sleep has never been seen before.

I am 10 times more surprised by this than I was when Holm knocked Rousey out.

He's got the most wins in UFC history, coming off back-to-back wins over Anderson Silva, the MW GOAT, and Luke Rockhold, who dethroned the man who dethroned the MW GOAT. 

He's AN all-time great. Not THE all-time great. 

Skill-wise? Probably not. Accomplishments-wise, hell yes. Title defenses is not the only criteria for building a great career.

Great card, only two boring fights out of thirteen is excellent! This card and Thomson-Hendricks are my two favorite cards of the year so far.

Just rewatched the fight. Rockhold's ring cutting is still as bad as it was when he lost to Belfort.

Most UFC wins sure but against ******* WHO???

Maybe we have different views on that topic but Bisping has like 3 Top 10 wins on his record and thats including Rockhold and Silva.

Sorry not on all time great in my eyes.

You are silly. And your argument is arbitrary to the extreme. How many top 10 fighters do you have to beat to become in all-timer, in your world view?

Beating the GOAT of your weight division followed by a SF and UFC champ doesn't qualify you, on top of being top 10 for 10 years?

Silly goose.

Mark my words. Michael Bisping will break Anderson Silva's record before Mighty Mouse.
