UFC Light Heavyweight Championship Bout – Jon Jones (15-1) vs. Rashad Evans (17-1-1)

If there is anyone that can put an end to the run of Jones, it appears Evans is that guy. He trained with Jones and knows where he may be weak. However, since the two have departed as teammates, Jones has really taken off. I suspect Evans will be caught off guard by Jones in some ways and be unable to find the range he is looking for with his striking. I feel Evans will get some takedowns, but ultimately, Jones will find a way to secure a choke and Evans in the fourth round and retain his title. FREE PICK – Jon Jones -505

UFC Welterweight Bout – Rory MacDonald (12-1) vs. Che Mills (14-4)

MacDonald is a rising star and he is very similar to the 170-pound champion, Georges St. Pierre. MacDonald is a great grappler with improving striking and he has been noticeably stronger than any opponent he has faced. Mills is still young in a UFC sense and I think being placed in the co-main event will be too much pressure for him. Look for MacDonald to win by TKO in the second round. FREE PICK – Rory MacDonald -500

UFC Bantamweight Bout – Miguel Torres (40-4) vs. Michael McDonald (14-1)

McDonald has been on a nice run as he gets into contendership in the 135-pound division, but he is facing his toughest opponent yet in Torres. Torres has a lot more experience and has found a lot of success since taming his attack style. Look for Torres to win on the feet and neutralize McDonald on the ground with his length. I see Torres winning by decision. FREE PICK – Miguel Torres -130
