    Seems like this card is stacked with a TON of high level grapplers. Just the Main Card has 5 Black Belts, a couple of very high level wrestlers in Hughes and the worlds most dangerous real estate agent Sonnen. The undercard has the return of McLovin, Mr Wonderful, Hendricks and Stephan Struve who also has some sub skills. Hopefully it will be a great night for all of us "human origami enthusiasts"!!!

    I share your excitement for the card but I feel like the only fight on the main card that's very likely to end in a sub is Silva vs. Sonnen and then maybe Guida vs. dos Anjos

    Fitch will win by holding Alves in side control

    Almeida vs. Hughes probably won't go to the ground

    JDS vs. Nelson will end by TKO

    The only person I see taking home a sub for sure is Hazelett. Sure there are other great grapplers but they actually have competition that can stuff the sub.
