    because ufc.com is always hilariously out of date.

    Is it Oct already?!
    They actually note Grice's loss if you click his profile.

    I like the weight difference between Alan Belcher Vs. Kalib Starnes.

    I would imagine middleweight.

    Here's what I listed as my picks on MMAPlayground:

    Silva v. Franklin: Silva. I THINK he's got Franklin's number, and he trains at a fantastic academy. However, I'm not 100% on this one.

    Belcher v. Starnes: Starnes. His submission game is too good for belcher. round 2 sub.

    Schafer v. Bonnar: Bonnar. I think we'll see this fight spend a significant amount of time on the ground with Bonnar grinding out a decision.

    Grice v. Black: Grice. As good as black might have been, I think he's done. Grice by KO/TKO rd. 2.

    Okami v. MacDonald: Okami. I see Okami doing to that little bitch J-Mack what Franklin did. Take down, mount, GnP for a TKO in Rd 2.

    Gurgel v. Robinson: Gurgel. Two great grapplers putting on a BJJ clinic. Gurgel by decision.

    Burkman v. Petz: Burkman. He's gonna come out fast and hard ending Petz's night early. Rd 1 KO.

    Vera v. Sylvia: Vera. I think the Sylvia is finally ripe for another submission loss and Vera's the guy to do it. Rd 2 sub.

    Maia v. Jensen: Jensen. Another pair of grapplers. I give Jensen the edge in UFC experience. So a decision win for him.

    Franklin v Silva by TKO

    Sylvia v Vera by TKO

    Shafer v Bonnar (I would like to see Stephan Bonnar have a heart attack or something that just makes him completely unable to fight in any promotion ever again, don't give a **** about Shafer)

    Belcher v Starnes by Sub

    J. Macdonald by Sub v Okami

    Burkman Vs. Petz (Burkman is just above Bonnar on my **** list, as long as he loses, I'm happy)

    Macdonald over Okami?
    Interesting choice.

    Is Black fighting at 155 again? That was a bad cut during his last UFC.

    I am going with Ace on this one, because so far this has been the year of WTF!!!?? in MMA and Rich Franklin beating Silva in the rematch would be that.
    And I pick Big Tim over Brandon Vera, Tim's submission defense is very good and I don't think Vera can strike with him. Here's hoping Tim pulls out that high kick that turned Tra Telligman power off.

Apparently assuming that Franklin was at least as smart as Chris Leben was giving him too much credit, but I'm guessing his handlers will have beaten this into his head and made him watch Silva/Lutter about 50 times, so I'm going to take the underdog pick of Franklin by Decision this time.

    Sylvia v Vera
    I think Vera is going to turn Sylvia's legs into raw meat; the only question I have is how Vera's untested chin is going to hold up if Sylvia manages to throw a counter right hand off of them a couple times. Nevertheless, Vera by TKO.

    Shafer v Bonnar
    Bonnar by submission, unless Schafer's improved a fuckload since the Bisping fight.

    Belcher v Starnes
    Starnes by sub or TKO.

    Undercard:

    J. Macdonald v Okami
    Okami by domination, although I expect MacDonald will look a lot better than people expect him to.

    Alvin Robinson Vs. Gurgel
    Gurgel via forgetting he knows BJJ and swinging for the fences, like usual

    Burkman Vs. Petz
    Burkman will probably win, but I'm going to pick Petz anyway because I hate Burkman and any excuse to root against him is a good one as far as I'm concerned.
