    Should be a good opportunity for some Asian fighters to make a name for themselves.
    Pretty damn good card for a non-numbered event.

    Stun Gun and Sanchez to win. Hopefully Sanchez puts on another FOTN.

    I actually fancy Lombard as a potential future champion at middleweight, once Silva's moved on. I think he'll KO Okami.

    Struve should have no problem with Hunt.

    Stann v Silva will surely be a standup fight, so I guess the winner will be whoever finds the other guy's chin first.

    Wanderlei Silva vs Brian Stann- I love Wandy, but he's a little too easy to hit these days and his chin isn't what it used to be. Stann is pretty one-dimensional, but he's got some pretty serious power. Stann by KO.

    Mark Hunt vs Stefan Struve- This should be a good indicator of whether or not Struve has finally learned how to use his reach or if he's still going to stand in the pocket and get his brain cells killed. I'll take Struve by decision, since he's not putting Hunt down.

    MAIN CARD
    ===================================
    Wanderlei Silva vs Brian Stann
    Long time wandy fan here. I feel he is on his way out at this point. While Stann isn't the best middleweight in the UFC, he is a contender for a reason. I see Stann finding Wandy's chin and putting him away. Stann by KO in Rd. 2.
    Mark Hunt vs Stefan Struve
    Mark Hunt is a dangerous matchup for anyone. Even if Struve tries to stay on the outside and outpoint him, Mark has got serious power and excellent control over range on the feet. However I don't think his ground game is nearly on the level of the Skyscrapers. I feel it will end with a 1st Round Submission by Struve. Probably an armbar.
    Takanori Gomi vs Diego Sanchez
    I agree this is a potential FOTN candidate on paper. Sanchez is likely looking to come back strong after his loss to Ellenberger. I expect to see "the Dream" grind out a win over Gomi using his wrestling and footwork. Sanchez by UD.
    Yushin Okami vs Hector Lombard
    This is a tough call. Both are experienced Judo Practitioners. Both have knockout power at middleweight. I feel Okami is the more technical striker, and will have the size to hang with Lombard in the clinch. I think Okami by SD.
    Mizuto Hirota vs Rani Yahya
    I don't expect Hirota to make the mistakes he has in the past, but I see a distinct grappling advantage for Yahya. I see a UD for Yahya.
    Dong Hyun Kim vs Siyar Bahadurzada
    I think that Siyar B. doesn't yet have the depth of experience necessary to take out "stun gun", who's only 2 losses come at the hands of far more experienced fighters. DHK by UD or TKO.
    ===================================


    All in all it should be a good card. I'm excited to watch it after work in the bar with some of my work friends who appreciate the sport.

    Lombard, Stann, Hunt by KO.

    Should be a a fun card.

    Pleased to see I wasn't the only one who called just about none of the big fights on this card correctly. Mark "9-7" Hunt is actually beginning to look like a possible title contender and Silva is apparently powered by adoring Japanese people in close proximity, causing him to pull off this great upset and making Stann's future in the cut-happy promotion uncertain.
