DaMarques Johnson vs Brad "Bad" Blackburn
Paul "Tellys" Kelly vs Matt Veach
First prediction. Silva with a Marquardt esque KO to mark Maia's second first round defeat! Easy money.
I hope that Demarques Johnson gets ktfo.
As much as I love Demian Maia,
Silva by decapitation. I doubt Maia would make it past the first round...
Call me crazy, but I'm going to go out on a limb and pick Anderson and BJ to win.
I'll probably be disappointed, but am rooting for Renzo.
oh man, Go Mauler!! Will be a really tough fight for him though!!
Silva via takedown counter with a knee to the face. You heard it here first. There don't really seem to be any worthwhile fights left for Silva at middleweight, unless Belfort can manage to stop being made of glass anytime soon. Hasn't he had to pull out of two fights with an injury now? And if the UFC could pick up Mousasi, I'd love to see that fight, but I think he said he won't be going back down to middleweight.
Edit- never mind, it was Silva who kept getting hurt.

The obvious picks out of the way:
Anderson Silva by 1st round KO
BJ Penn by 2nd round submission - RNC
For the Hughes/Renzo fight I think Renzo takes this one (at least I hope!). I'll say Renzo via split decision.
BJ and Anderson are in the same boat and it sucks. I demand competition!
I like Maia and his sweet jits, but I think Silva is going to do what Marquardt did.
I don't see Edgar standing a chance either standing or on the ground, unless BJ thought he was untouchable after the last fights and went partying instead of training.
I hope Renzo beats Hughes, I rarely cheer against a guy, but Hughes is just such a dick...
