The main card will kick off with what could be an explosive fight between two bantamweights in need of a win.
Former WEC bantamweight champion Eddie Wineland (0-2 UFC) is coming off two back-to-back decision losses to Joseph Benavidez and Urijah Faber. Scott Jorgensen (2-1 UFC) is coming off a decision loss to Renan Barão.
Both fighters have knockout power in their hands if they connect, and each are capable of finishing the fight by submission. In 18 professional wins, Wineland has nine knockouts and five submissions. Jorgensen, a wrestler, has two knockouts and four submissions in 13 professional wins.
The fight should see a great standup battle with Wineland having the slight edge if it stays on the feet. If it goes to the ground, Jorgensen will be the beneficiary with his superior wrestling.
While both fighters are capable of finishing fights, neither are the recipient of a knockout, submission or stoppage too often. Wineland has been finished once in the past seven years, while Jorgensen has only been finished once in his entire career.
Expect to see a back-and-forth fight that could see both fighters in trouble throughout, without the finish.
Prediction: Jorgensen via decision. Fight of the Night
