Predictions: 10 of 13 Winners, 6 Perfect, 675 Points   |   10th Place

The fighters are weighed in and we're set for a solid night of fights on Big FOX.

Will Weidman break the streak? Will Gastelum become an insta-contender at 185 lbs? Will Elkins continue to defeat men he has no right to beat?

What they just said about Villante getting up to 250 is why he will never be more than a journeyman.

Yeah, that's ridiculous that Gian cuts 40+ lbs.

Villante's ideal weight is HW, he has meh speed at LHW, but would be fast at HW and more gas.

If Villante cuts from 250 to 205, why not just be a heavyweight?  Like I don't get the logic some people have when they say potentially capable heavyweights should cut a bunch of weight or slim down to go down to Light Heavyweight or Middleweight, when Heavyweight is so thin for talent.  For what?  A size advantage?  It won't matter if they are still semi dehydrated and have a limited gas tank.  I think there should be encouragement for more of the heavier guys to stay their size and go up like Rumble did.  But that's just me.

Cummins should fight Timothy Johnson as they sport the same look.

Villante has always been slow as a LHW. I do think he would be a more effective HW. It's not like he's short.

1 & 3 were close, but I think I'd give it to Cummins 30-27.

Villante sucks. I think Cummins took the second and the third.
