This is a really really good card on paper. I'm hesitant to choose anyone because I don't want to jinx shit.

The fitch/maia and aldo/edgar are the fights I most want to see. Can edgar stop aldos kicks of death and can fitch stop quite possibly the nastiest submission artist in mma history? That blood dripping neck crank from maia's last fight was horrific.

This Aldo/Edgar fight shouldn't even be happening. Tho I am biased towards Frankie (he's my cousin) he won the second Henderson fight handily. The judges sucked moose balls. That being said, changing up from fighting guys 20 lbs heavier than him and stronger to a guy like Aldo who is quick as hell is gonna be a tough adjustment but should make for a great fight. Frankie took some monster punishment from the bigger guys and fought thru it. Curious as to how he handles the quicker opponent who might have less power than past matchups.

No idea he was your cousin

I thought he won vs Hendo but not "handily" but still very cool & I am picking him to win

One thing to consider is that if aldo does beat edgar is will he move to light weight to challenge for the title there too? Aldo has beat most of the 145 guys hasn't he?

Does anyone know of any other sighs like xme where you pay a small fee but actually get a good quality stream?

most of the 125 and 135 and some 145 fights are snoozers. imo the ufc has cheapened the brand by bringing in all of these little guys. they punch each other 400 times and no one falls down. yes there are a few guys who get after it but for the most part..ehhhh...
