    McGregor over Siver, Henderson over Cowboy. Hall and Parke seem like save bets. The rest are a bunch of nobodies.

    Matsuda vs Sanchez - Matsuda's got a good chin but Sanchez has way more upside.
    Sanchez, UD

    Van Buren vs O' Connell - Not overly impressed with either but O'Connell can crack and he does keep the pressure on guys. I can see him folding Van Buren.
    O'Connell, TKO, 2nd round

    Rosa vs Soriano - Soriano's a great prospect but this is gonna be 0-3 and done, as he gets grappled to a decision by an even better prospect.
    Rosa, UD

    Case vs Perez - tossup for me, never seen Perez fight so I'll go for experience and say Case outlasts him.
    Case, UD

    Holohan vs Howell - supposed squash match, clearly. Holohan won't drop the ball this time, he'll tap out the non-UFC material dude quickly.
    Holohan, submission (rear-naked choke), 1st round

    Zhang vs Wade - these TUF China guys are just poor, really. This is actually a step down for Wade, IMO. Wade taps him without much issue.
    Wade, submission (guillotine choke), 1st round

    Howard vs Larkin - tough one. I'm fed up of being disappointed with Larkin and while he better suits WW I can see a tough weight-cut and a gassing ahead. Howard comes from behind to grind out the last half of the fight with wrestling and edge it.
    Howard, SD

    Penred vs Spencer - Not convinced at all with Pendred. Spencer has at least shown adequate stand-up, whereas Pendred has none; Spencer is also athletic enough to avoid Pendred's telegraphed takedowns. Spencer cruises.
    Spencer, UD

    Park vs Tibau - Parke's decent but Tibau is an elite gatekeeper. Tibau manhandles him for 2.5 rounds then submits a tired Parke.
    Tibau, submission (arm-triangle), 3rd round

    Hall vs Stallings - Hall starts slowly, Stallings gives him a tougher fight than expected until he gets cracked with something nasty.
    Hall, TKO, 2nd round

    Cerrone vs Henderson - Cerrone gets taken down in every round, has his serious moments off his back and a few standing but eventually wrestling wins the day.
    Henderson, UD

    McGregor vs Siver - Siver starts well, surprises us with a takedown, Conor gets back up. Then the fun starts. Conor picks him apart and puts him away with strikes in the final seconds of the first.
    McGregor, TKO, 1st round

    Cerrone vs Henderson

    Cowboy will be behind going into the 3rd but will win via submission (choke).


    McGregor vs Siver

    As predicted by McGregor this fight will end in under 2 minutes of the 1st round, sadly for him Siver wins via submission (choke) after taking down an over confident McGregor who under estimated his opponent greatly.

    Agree with everything except maybe Howard. I can kinda see Larkins just being a bit more active since Howard throws a punch every other week so if Larkins is just a bit busy on the feet he can take a decision.

    Pendred is going to gas badly AGAIN and I see Spencer winning this without much problem. Maybe even put some money on him if line is good. Currently is -160 on Spencer. Not gonna say its a lock but Pendred is just baaaaad. Outside of some derp moment from Spencer or lucky punch by Pendred I can't see how Spencer loses this one.

    Tibau will show Norman what elite fighter looks like, much like Cerrone did to Jury 2 weeks ago.

    I fear Bendo will just grapplefuck Cerrone in a very boring fight. I will root hard for Cerrone but like you said I can see Bendo just pushing him against the fence or scoring one TD per round. Hope I'm wrong.

    Larkin/Howard's a tough one, I prefer Larkin but I'm sick of being disappointed by him now, haha....Howard seems to win every fight I DON'T want him to, which is why I'm edging towards him grinding it out.

    Agree completely about Pendred, don't rate him at all. Apparently he's a lovely bloke, my mate met him recently, but he's just not a good fighter IMO and Spencer's far more athletic and better standing.
