It will be the biggest UFC event in history.
Tickets were snapped up faster than Montreal which holds the current attendance record.
All the attention is on Brock and Randy but this overall card is a monster.
Here are the predictions for the top fights on the card as currently rumored.
Randy Couture (16-8) vs. Brock Lesnar (2-1)
This is simply an interesting fight. Brock has shown amazing speed, strength and against Frank Mir that he is susceptible to submission based on MMA basics. If they decide to bang it out, Brock looks like too much of a powerhouse. They key here is Randy is a fight plan master. We expect him to execute to a game plan with perfection and be able to take this one with the fight going the distance.
Quinton Jackson (28-7) vs. Wanderlei Silva (32-8-1)
We just can’t get ourselves to an 0-3 Jackson against Silva. That’s what makes this card so intriguing, the matchups are that good. We predict that Jackson comes out strong and Silva remains timid to kick things off and that is as far as it gets – an early TKO for Jackson.
Kenny Florian (10-3) vs. Joe Stevenson (29-8)
Florian looked impressive and complete in his win over Huerta. This is a tough challenge for him but he has been getting stronger and more confident with each of his last several victories. With a looming BJ matchup still in the back of KenFlo’s mind we don’t see him slipping up along the way. Florian in a close decision.
Dustin Hazelett (11-4) vs. Tamdan McCrory (9-1)
Favorite is Hazelett in this one but do not be surprised by an upset here. McCrory looked greatly improved in his UFC87 win. Hazelett by decision.
