Predictions: 2 of 5 Winners, 0 Perfect, 115 Points   |   Tied for 237th

Another solid card tonight!! Some tough fights to predict. I think in terms of quality they may someone be even better than last weeks. (Probably just jinxed it now, tho.)

I mean, I get they want the guys to go out and perform. It just sort of kills it for me that all the winners don't get contracts. Spohn and Zulu both got good finishes in their fights, and are both in divisions that need depth. So why not sign them?

Spohn was getting his ass kicked. De Anda just got a bit overzealous with his strikes which allowed Spohn to get ref assistance to recover. Good comeback but I wasn't convinced he would be a good addition to the UFC. As for Zulu nothing in particular impressed me about his fight other than his opponent tried out for TUF at 185 lbs. and looked like a fat MW rather than a HW.

I would hate it if UFC handed a contract to every winner. After the Outlaw fight I wasn't itchin' to see him again. Same goes for Spohn and Kenney. I don't know how long this show will run for but it would be good to give guys multiple chances to prove themselves as a marketable prospect.
