My last prediction: you will go 0 for 5.

I'm also a bit torn on Marquardt and Lombard, but for quite a while now i've just had a feeling that Marquardt will win this. My mind tells me there's a reasonable chance Lombard will get an early TKO, but my gut says no. Who is less reliable than Lombard? How will the cut to WW affect him? Marquardt looked a lot bigger than Lombard at the weigh-in, and they're both around the same age. I've had a feelingi Lombard was gonna lose this (likely by decision) for a while now.

But Kaufman-Eye is driving me nuts. Seems 89% of people on here are going with Kaufman, which frankly i find surprising. Why is she such a big favorite? No ground game, lost to Ronda in like 45 seconds, won close, debatable decisions in her last 2 wins (I thought she lost her last fight).
Sarah is a huge favorite because Jessica is coming over from the "b-league" and not alot of people know of her at all; Whereas Sarah has fought Rousey and was a SF champion. Also people are counting Jessica out because she's a natural 125er; even though Sarah had tough fights against smaller opponents (most notably Leslie Smith, whom I also believe she lost to). Eye via SUB.

I'm going with Eye, I think you're right. Sub or Dec....either way I don't see Sarah's UFC debut going very well. Size certainly won't play a factor here.

Kaufman's been in the B-leagues too though. And yea, she fought Rousey - she got crushed in under a minute. Both she and Eye are making their UFC debuts tonight... i suppose Eye is newer to Zuffa, and Strikeforce fighters have done well in the UFC... Bellator fighters (like Lombard) not so much. Still... WMMA isn't as deep a field and I think this fight is at most a 50/50 tossup.
