UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUT - Benson Henderson (20-3) vs. Rustam Khabilov (17-1)

This should be a competitive five-round fight, but Henderson is really an elite-level fighter that perhaps doesn’t get enough credit for being as good as he is. He ran through the UFC roster upon his arrival from the WEC. His lone loss in the octagon is to the current champion, but he owns wins over many of the best at 155. Khabilov shows some promise, but he is taking on his toughest fight by far, and fighting someone that is accustomed to going 25 minutes. Look for Henderson to out-class and out-condition his opponent tonight. UFC FREE PICK – Benson Henderson -240

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUTDiego Sanchez (24-7) vs. Ross Pearson (15-6).

This should be a very entertaining fight. Pearson comes in as a technical striker that can win if he is patient and sticks to his game plan. Sanchez is a bit of a wild card fighter that likes to turn things into a free-for-all. One of the X factors in this fight is that Sanchez is fighting at home for the first time in his career. A fighter that already has incredible heart will be even more motivated tonight. I like Sanchez to find a way to win. He may get beat up doing so, but his resolve will carry him past Pearson. UFC FREE PICK – Diego Sanchez +150
