- Shinya Aoki vs. Lyle Beerbohm - via sub
- Gegard Mousasi vs. Keith Jardine - via sub or tap to strikes
- Tatsuya Kawajiri vs. Gilbert Melendez - via brain pummeling punch.
- Paul Daley vs. Nick Diaz - via strangulation
I'll be rooting for Daley. I tend not to watch or read anything MMA related besides the fights themselves, so I'm unconcerned about which of these two gentlemen is the bigger shitcock on a personal level, but in this day and age, fighting with your hands as low as Diaz does is inexcuseable and it is my considered opinion that getting knocked the hell out early on in the fight by the notoriously heavy-handed Daley might be just the thing to get him to stop fighting like such a tosser and learn how to box properly.
Mousasi beats Jardine handily. Why a mid-level fighter like Jardine gets the opportunity to get dominated by somebody like Mousasi is beyond me.

Daley knocks out Diaz in the second.
Cyborg really gave Nick problems standing up before he gassed. Daley has better kicks and with elbows now legal and nick's propensity to bleed.....Nick's Stockton Wangsta mentality will dictate him to trade with Daley.
Daley has speculated that Nick's uncharacteristically quiet demeanor means that he is trying to Kosheck him with a gameplan fight. This is only an attempt to nudge Nick into proving "I ain't no bitch!"
Nick's weak takedowns may not be good enough to take down someone as strong as daley. If he is able to take him down he wins this running away. If this fight goes to round 4 daley will probably tap himself out.
I would love to see Jardine get an upset here....dude comes to fight...he has a fighter's chance....
If Daley sucker punches Nick after the bell we're gonna see a conniption that'll make Strikeforce: Nashville look like a game of Calvin Ball.
vs. Lyle Beerbohm
vs. Gilbert Melendez
Paul Daley vs. Nick Diaz
vs. Robert Peralta
It would be a beatdown of biblical proportions. Paul would not survive...

Even Nick Diaz said he understood where Daley was coming from. There will be no sucker punch...it's not even on the menu.
what is with this ref's mustache...
