UFC MIDDLEWEIGHT BOUT - Lyoto Machida (19-4) vs. Mark Munoz (13-3)

This is Machida’s debut at 185 pounds, but that shouldn’t be a problem. The key to this fight is that it is 5 rounds. If it was 3 rounds, Munoz would be favored with his wrestling style. Machida doesn’t stay very active, as he waits for his opponents to attach and then retaliates. Machida needs time to show his dominance in a fight and he will get that here. Munoz may have some early success, but Machida’s striking will be too much from him and the new middleweight will eventually get a KO finish in the fifth round. UFC FREE PICK – Lyoto Machida -360

UFC LIGHTWEIGHT BOUTMelvin Guillard (31-12-2) vs. Ross Pearson (15-6)

This fight should be close and competitive, but Pearson has the backing of the home crowd. Guillard likes to come out fast, but tends to fade after the first round. Pearson is a smart and cagey fighter that is good on his feet and the ground. Pearson just needs to survive the opening five minutes and then he can pick Guillard apart and pick up a big win. Look for Pearson to win via submission in the third round. UFC FREE PICK – Ross Pearson +115
