UFC 164 will take place from the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with the main card bouts airing live on PPV at 10PM ET. All odds are according to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv.

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP BOUT - Benson Henderson (19-2) vs. Anthony Pettis (16-2)

I see a new champion in this one. It should be a great fight and it really could go either way, but Pettis has his striking at an incredible level and he could end this fight with one kick. Henderson has seemingly gotten comfortable with his striking and I think that will be his downfall. The best way for the champion to win is to grapple for 25 minutes. If he doesn’t do that, which I don’t think he will, he will come out on the losing end. UFC 164 FREE PICK – Anthony Pettis -105

UFC HEAVYWEIGHT BOUT - Josh Barnett (32-6) vs. Frank Mir (16-7)

Mir has struggled against the bigger heavyweights because he is unable to get them to the ground and use his submission skills against them. Mir has some striking ability, but he won’t out-strike Barnett. Barnett will smother Mir against the fence and use some dirty boxing to tire Mir. Barnett will then slowly pick Mir apart on the feet to earn a decision victory. UFC 164 FREE PICK – Josh Barnett -175

UFC FEATHERWEIGHT BOUTErik Koch (13-2) vs. Dustin Poirier (13-3)

This fight could be the fight of the night. Both men should bring an aggressive attack to the cage. Poirier has grown as a fighter over the last few years due to his battles with Cub Swanson and Chan Sung Jung and that should pay off against Koch. Poirier can win the striking battle and he scrambles well on the ground if Koch is able to take him down. Look for Poirier to earn a hard-fought decision in a mild upset. UFC 164 FREE PICK – Dustin Poirier +125
