Co Main event:
Frankie Edgar v Gray Maynard
The third fight between these two. After a draw in there last bout, Maynard was able to sway Dana White to allow an immediate rematch with the champ. So “The Bully” has his chance. It’s anyone’s guess as to what will happen here, but Frankie “The Answer” Edgar is like the Energizer bunny with fists. The guy never stops going. I can see the little spark plug punching his way to a decision.
Jose Aldo v Kenny Florian
After missing several chances at the 155 lb belt, K-Flo moves to 145 to try his luck there. Standing in his way is Aldo who some say is one of the best pound for pound fighters. Florian will have his hands full. He claims that Aldo has not fought anyone with his experience before. At age 35 Florian does have experience, and this may be his last shot at a title. But Aldo has amazing talent and sick explosiveness, if he is able to avoid previous issues with cutting weight and enter the ring at 100% we should see a rare knockout of Kenny Florian.
Chael Sonnen v Brian Stann
Thankfully for the sport and interviewers everywhere, Chael Sonnen, finally returns to the ring after dominating Anderson Silva for 99% of their last fight. Unfortunately for him, that last 1% will get ya every time. He hopes to knock the ring rust off against a man after his own heart, ex-marine Brian Stann. This will be no cake walk for Sonnen. Stann is a stud and Chael knows it. But I believe Sonnen is in an elite class that Stann hasn’t made it to. Brian Stann also does not have the submission skills that usually bite Sonnen in the behind. Look for Sonnen to beat up Stann on the ground as he always does and win the unanimous decision. Let’s just hope he has his Testosterone levels in check this time, so there are no unanswered questions.
Melvin Guillard v Joe Lauzon
Guillard needs to overcome Lauzon if he wants a title fight. He’s been here before though and the submission guy always seems to catch him. Lauzon claims himself that his subs are “The Assasin’s” kryptonite. Guillard is definitely the more powerful and explosive of the two and if he can stay out of a Lauzon pretzel he should be able to knock him out at some point. I think that by this point Guillard has learned his lesson and should come away with the KO win.
