How hard can it be to find Michel a new opponent? His last fight before the UFC was an open weight fight against a heavyweight, and he did two backflips off of the cage in that fight! Dude's up for whatever!

Teixeira vs. Krylov
Nikita Krylov, TKO, R1
Glover is an OG! But he's been cracked hard over the past few fights! Rumour has it his tooth is still in orbit after Rumble smashed him, Gus beat the piss outta him for 5rds, even Karl Roberson dropped him with about 20 Travis Browne elbows! Cutelaba nearly beat him too and would've if he wasn't such a front runner who folds at the 1st hint his opponent isn't going away in a round! If you haven't guessed by now I'm saying Glover has taken a lot of punishment and it can't continue. Krylov is hard to treat but he is a dangerous striker and I see him dropping Glover with a head kick

Duffee vs. Hughes
Jeff Hughes, TKO, R2
LOL! DUFFMAN! Remember Mike Russow!

Júnior vs. Hall
Uriah Hall, TKO, R3
Will Uriah get his ass beat till he lands a devastating KO like he did against Lewis and Jotko or will he just get his ass beat? Always tough to call Uriah fights

Vettori vs. Sanchez
Andrew Sanchez, DEC
I've never been sold on Vettori, never backed him once! I'm still not impressed! Ferreira gave that last fight away by having a kickboxing match instead of taking it to the ground and that is how Sanchez wins this, takedowns, the ole head in the crotch gameplan! Sanchez cardio and chin are always a worry but I think he'll sc**** out a win by the skin of his teeth!

Cerrone vs. Gaethje
Donald Cerrone, TKO, R3
if donald fights smart, he should be able to land the more accumulating damage with leg kicks and body shots. i think he has a cardio advantage and won't get as sloppy as justin will.

Teixeira vs. Krylov
Glover Teixeira, SUB, R2
wow there are a lot more people taking glover than i expected, but i guess the 5 sub losses for krylov does stand out as a potential exploit. he could get clipped, but glover still seems to have some fight left in him for gatekeeper type gigs.

Duffee vs. Hughes
Jeff Hughes, TKO, R1
i just don't trust todd's body. nor his fight iq.

Pereira vs. Connelly
Michel Pereira, TKO, R1
late notice against someone flashy. could be an upset, could be a feeding. i'll guess one of those quick fights where both guys get hurt before one gets finished.

Júnior vs. Hall
Antônio Carlos Júnior, DEC
i'll trust carls jr's chin and believe he can work inside and drag on uriah for most of the fight.

Cirkunov vs. Crute
Jimmy Crute, TKO, R2
feels like they're tryin to bury cirkunov. either he gets an early td and the tap or he gets blasted eventually.

Sakai vs. Tybura
Marcin Tybura, DEC
could be fireworks, could be a staring dance contest. still have a lot of faith in tybura's ground game and i think he's more capable of switching up the fight tempo.

Smith vs. Johns
Miles Johns, DEC
the gagnon win is the only thing smith has going for him, but hard to know what to make of an opponent with a 3 year layoff. miles johns just seems more likely, based on competition, to take scorecards.

Vettori vs. Sanchez
Marvin Vettori, TKO, R2
sanchez has a good skillset, but expends all of his energy early and i think vettori will be better prepared to take over the latter 2 rounds if he doesn'

Katona vs. Azure
Brad Katona, SUB, R2
is azure a late replacement or something? his list of opponents doesn't sound like ufc-ready to me. bounce back for katona i guess?

Skelly vs. Griffin
Jordan Griffin, DEC
skelly seemed primed to become a perennial contender, but i think his propensity to brawl has taken a toll of him and i'm expecting griffin to come in hungrier for the spotlight.

Smolka vs. MacDonald
Ryan MacDonald, DEC
i like smolka, thought he could've been a title contender at one point, so i'm just gonna hedge my heart pick here and say macdonald outlasts louis and hope to be wrong.

Prepolec vs. Hubbard
Austin Hubbard, DEC
was just more convinced by hubbard's wins than prepolec's, no great reason.

Júnior vs. Hall
Antônio Carlos Júnior, SUB, R2
Uriah Hall has avoided grapplers like the plague ever since Gastelum took the TUF title from him years ago. Now he gets one of the best in the UFC. There is always the chance Hall pulls some miracle spinning shot like he did against Mousasi but I don't see it happening here. Shoe face gets this down and chokes out Hall. This fight seems tailor made for Junior to get a name on his resume to try and further his career. This also seems to say to Hall the UFC is done looking out for Hall by not giving him grapplers to fight.
