    both of these cards feature an abundance of great prelims

    Ufc on FX 7
    Justin Salas vs Edson Barboza
    Andrew Craig vs Ronny Markes
    Yuri Alcantara vs George Roop
    Francisco Trinaldo vs CJ Keith
    Nik Lentz vs Diego Nunes

    Ufc on Fox 6
    Ryan Bader vs Vladimir Matyushenko
    TJ Grant vs Matt Wiman
    Clay Guida vs Hatsu Hioki


    All of these fights feature at least either one top fighter or a top prospect. Which fights are you most interested in?

    Personally I like Grant vs Wiman, Hioki vs Guida and Lentz vs Nunes the most. All three feature match ups between top 15 fighters in their division. The winner of all these fights have to be getting close to top contender status and all three are evenly matched.

    Nunes vs. Lentz should be on the main card. Lentz and Nunes both looked better than ever in their last fight. That fight could produce a contender. Is anyone really that stoked to see Thiago Tavares vs. Khabib Nurmagomedov? Khabib needs a lot more seasoning and Tavares is firmly established as a middle of the road guy at 155.

    Fox 7 has bigger names but Lentz/Nunes is just as good a fight as any on the Fox preliminary card.

    Plus Barboza, Trinaldo, Alcantara and Markes are all guys with a ton of potential.

    Looking forward to Wiman-Grant. Grant was just in a war with Dunham and Wiman subbed a submission specialist. A new contender will come out of that one.

    All the ones mentioned and markes vs Craig. This fight will determine who a future contender in the mw will be.
