    3 really good fights this weekend that are getting absolutely no attention.

    Connor upstages pretty much everything(shit there's barely even a thread about Bisping/Silva) but it's crazy there's absolutely no talk about Ufc London.

    I thought particularly Gegard had a hardcore fanbase, but maybe they've dropped off over the last couple fights. That bout vs. Costa was pretty bad.

    Tom Breese is a guy I'm watching for. I think he's very impressive. Hoping for Gegard to get a win here, I wanna keep seeing him fight the best guys. No preference in Pickett/Cisco although I'd hate to see Pickett lose brutally again. He's good people and always shows up to fight.

    Yeah not many people are talking about these fights, but I think it's just mainly because of how huge the main event is. And Breese will be getting some nice exposure being on the main card only a few fights away from such a huge main event. Especially since he will probably get a nice KO. But yeah I agree 3 great fights.

    Mousassi - Decision
    Breese - 2nd Rd KO/TKO
    Rivera - 2nd Rd KO/TKO

    I'll be rooting for One Punch to get the win though, i like both guys quite a bit. Either way that fight should be insane while it lasts.

    I'm a pretty big fan of Leties/Mousasi. It's a good fight to get Mousasi back on the right track.

    I'm with you except for the Pickett fight. When Rivera lands, he goes into headhunting mode and will get caught.

    Historically, after a loss, Mousasi almost always comes out and wins his next fight by first-round finish. I would love to see him follow that trend and TKO Leites in the 1st, but I think it'll end in a Mousasi UD.

    Breese has looked very good so far. Nakamura is no real threat on the feet and has a tendency to shoot from distance, so I'm thinking Breese by guillotine or RNC inside 2.

    I like Rivera, but let's be real, a flash KO loss to Almeida is probably not an indicator of Pickett's chin in the future. Cisco will probably land a couple of good shots early, and like @Spycho said, he'll go into headhunting mode and get clobbered by Pickett.

    I just don't think Pickett's chin can withstand Rivera's shots at this point.

    That fight has fight of the night written all over it.

    Hope Gegard wins in the first round so he can fight in Rotterdam aswell. For the Dutchies it would be great to see all the Dutch ufc fighters in action.

    Breese is a showcase not a matchup. Kind of embarrassing really on UFC's part. Gonna be worse when all the apes in the crowd go nuts when breese wins, as if it's some big victory for england
