This main event consist on six fights as follows:

1) #2 Johny Hendricks (17-3-0)(W-L-D) Vs. #8 Stephen Thompson (11-1-0)(W-L-D)

The main event of the UFC fight night can also known as power versus speed.

Hendricks appears as the favorite (pays 1.42). It is obvious, since he is going to fight a #8. However, Thomson (pays 2.7) is a great fighter and should not be sub estimated.

We think is very difficult that the fight ends with a K.O. The most probable end is with a decision.

Johny Hendricks:

Stephen Thompson:


Our pick: Hendricks by split decision.

2) #11 Roy Nelson (21-12-0) Vs. #12 Jared Rosholt (14-2-0)

Both fighters have enough power to produce a K.O. Here the favorite is Nelson (pays 1.55). However, we think Rosholt (pays 2.3). This means that Roy has the 20% more possibilities of win the fight.

We think that it is very possible that Roy Nelson accumulates another lose for hes record. But in this kind of fights anything can happen.


Our pick: Jared Rosholt.

3) #6 Ovince Saint Preux (18-7-0) Vs. #13 Rafael Cavalcante (12-6-0)

It looks like a very closed fight. However the odds places Ovince (pays 1.25) as an absolute possible winner. Cavalante has to shows why he obtained this fight opportunity.


Our pick: Ovince Sain Preux by K.O.

4) #1 Joseph Benavidez (23-4-0) Vs. #8 Zach Makovsky (19-6-0)

It is obvious that the #1 is the favorite. Benavidez pays 1.2 meanwhile Makovsky pays 4.

Benavidez has to win to get a shot for the title and Makovsky needs to prove that he is ready for anyone in the flywieght division.

Our pick: Benavidez by decision.

5) Misha Cirkunov (10-2-0) Vs. Alex Nicholson (6-1-0)

Very closed figth, both has power to K.O. And knowledge for perform a submission.

Our pick: Alex N. by K.O.

6) Mike Pyle (26-11-1) Vs. Sean Spencer (12-4-0)

Our pick: Sean Spencer by K.O.
