Oh wow, now THIS is a fight. I'll take Hooker here. Barboza is a beast but I feel he's still got too much of the orthodox thai fighter in him to really stick something on Hooker, who will win by decision.

Lee vs. Iaquinta II
Kevin Lee, DEC
I feel like UFC is kinda doin FOX / FS1 a little dirty. You'd think for the last card on a FOX network, it'd be an absolute banger .... But that's not the plan I guess. And so much for the Big FOX cards to resemble PPV cards as well. I guess I'm just taking out my frustration.

Barboza vs. Hooker
Edson Barboza, DEC
This is prolly the fight I'm most excited about on this card.. It should be a reallyyyy fun fight. Tho I've been wrong before, I just see no way, or reason why this fight could be a dud. The world already knows how good Edson is, especially with those most devastating kicks, maybe even top 5 kicks in the game.. But Hooker I believe is a little under the radar. This isn't the best fight for him to showcase his skills, but it's a BIG OPPORTUNITY.

Pettis vs. Font
Rob Font, TKO, R2
Maaaan I dnt think this is a goood move for Sergio.. The Flyweight division isn't trashed yet, so you should stay where you truly belong. I see Font (who does have some pop for a tiny guy) will clip him in the 2nd round or later

Oliveira vs. Miller II
Charles Oliveira, SUB, R1
I'm always *****ing about my legends continuing to fight when there's nothing left to fight for and their names and legacies are sealed. Jim Miller is ALMOST TO THAT POINT for me. He's realistically, never gonna fight for the belt (in a top organization) and his name IS sealed in the history books as a top sub machine. I like Jim Miller. But I cannot pick him here, even tho he's gotta win on Oliveíra already. It was literally almost 8 years ago to the day, that they fought & Miller handed Oliveíra his 1st pro loss.. It's NOT the same fight. Miller / Oliveíra aren't the same fighters. It'll prolly go down the same way,, with one locked up in a SUB, and the other tapping... Only Oliveíra will have his hand raised this time.

Cummings vs. Smith
Zak Cummings, DEC
This fight is at Middleweight?? Cummings wasn't even a huge Welterweight.... Kinda confused about this one.

Klose vs. Green
Bobby Green, DEC
This is the fight that's really been giving my indecisive, flip-floppin, never know what the **** is goin on, havin ass a problem.. Bobby Green looked like the better Bobby Green in his last fight.. But I also understand that Drakkar Klose's fight style, is gonna make Greens night, a little tougher and longer than he wants to accept..

Grant vs. Ottow
Dwight Grant, TKO, R2
Now, Zak Ottow could be in for a long nite here for sure. If frickin Sage Northcutt have you probs.... I wonder what Grant's gonna do with Ottow??? That's the only question I have about this fight.

Hermansson vs. Meerschaert
Jack Hermansson
Do styles really make fights? Striker vs. Grappler is the classic clash of styles... I wonder who's got more wins and finishes..... The strikers or the grapplers?

Milstead vs. Rodriguez
Adam Milstead, TKO, R2
This could be the sleeper fight of the card.... Mark my words. Gotta take Milstead here tho. Gotta take my PA boy (I know you're all bout sick of my ass with that ****). But that's not the main reason, I just think his hands are a tiny bit better than Rodríguez, tho I'm sure Rodríguez def got the power advantage. There should be a finish either way tho. They've gotta COMBINED 17 wins & 17 finishes..... 13 of which by KO

Ige vs. Griffin
Jordan Griffin, SUB, R2
It's about dammmn time Jordan Griffin finally gets the callup to the big show.. Only 22 fights into his pro career... Tough matchup, but anyone in the UFC would be a tough matchup. It actually coulda been worse. I think this is a winnable scrap for Griffin... But maybe Dan Ige can hand Griffin ONLY his 3rd loss in his last 19 fights. We'll just hafta wait and see I guess.

Clark vs. Lee
Andrea Lee, DEC
Finally.... A goood chick scrap on a fight night card... And this is a legit scrap.. Prolly even with future Flyweight title implications too..

Adams vs. De La Rocha
Juan Adams, TKO, R1
The Kraken is gonna crack some skulls.... Some nasty Ground and Pound for the finish is what I got ordered up.

Silva vs. Gordon
Jared Gordon, DEC
I like Jared Gordon in this fight... I also like that he's a recovering addict. I can relate. That's a wayyy harder battle to be on top of, than any fight Joaquím Silva can bring him.. In my honest opinion.

Lee vs. Iaquinta II
Kevin Lee, SUB, R3
Kevin Lee will be rocked a bit by a couple of early right hands, but once warmed up, will start carving "Raging Al" up on the feet in a pretty close fight through 2 rounds. In the 3rd, Lee will take him down for GNP, then submit him with a RNC.

Interesting that Barboza went back to ATT and Clark basically just switched camps halfway through...never a good sign.

Kevin Lee's striking looked very very sharp in the Road to the Octagon episode, I think this time he dominates Iaquinta.

I like Lee, but his striking is abysmal. Ask the BJJ expert, Santos, if you don't believe me.

Lee vs. Iaquinta II
Al Iaquinta, TKO, R4
i'm biased towards al and i think kevin lee is a goon, but i also think that kevin's coming in overconfident in his ability to take al down. lee's chin has been cracked before and al may very well do it again.

Barboza vs. Hooker
Daniel Hooker, TKO, R2
not sure why the lines are so close. beatings like the one lee gave to barboza affect your career and hooker is a thorough finisher. he can hang standing and certainly has the advantage if he chooses to take it down.

Pettis vs. Font
Rob Font, DEC
i'm not sure pettis has the power to really threaten font and he's on the wrong end of height/reach. not sure he gets finished though.

Oliveira vs. Miller II
Charles Oliveira, SUB, R1
oliveira's all or nothing style certainly leaves opportunities for him to get finished, but i simply don't trust jim miller at this point.

Grant vs. Ottow
Dwight Grant, TKO, R2
i'll pick ottow against aging vets, but a cleaner striker like grant should be able to find his chin like others have.

Clark vs. Lee
Andrea Lee, DEC
andrea lee will never live up to the hype she gets, but clark doesn't even really have hype. they're desperate for another female star so i think they believe lee has the advantage here.

Klose vs. Green
Drakkar Klose, DEC
i'll forever question bobby green's motivation and beating a one-foot-out-the-door koch didn't really impress me. klose should be able to stalk forward and land straight punches as green meanmugs.

Silva vs. Gordon
Jared Gordon, DEC
thinking gordon can keep it technical and end up in top position if it hits the ground.

Hermansson vs. Meerschaert
Jack Hermansson, DEC
this one seems like a matter of who can choose where the fight takes place and though i think jack will be over-eager to enter the clinch, i think he can avoid getting taken down.

Ige vs. Griffin
Jordan Griffin, DEC
haven't been too impressed with ige and his competition has been kinda mediocre so i'll go with griffin in a close decision.

Milstead vs. Rodriguez
Mike Rodriguez, TKO, R1
this is a pick em really so i don't have a good reason for my prediction. i guess i'll take slow because he has a pretty big reach advantage.

Cummings vs. Smith
Zak Cummings, DEC
smith is a tough guy that could grind it out if cummings gets lazy, but i think the caliber of opponents zak has lost to in the ufc should be a good indicator of where he stands comparatively.

Adams vs. De La Rocha
Juan Adams, TKO, R1
13 year age gap, plus you're gonna have to do more than beat coulter for me to pick ya.
