UFC 149 Bleacher Report MMA Staff Predictions
MMA Fighting

While UFC 149 may easily be the most injury-plagued card of all time, but that doesn't mean there aren't some fights worth watching on Saturday night. 

The main event of the evening gives two elite bantamweights a chance to win the interim title with champion Dominick Cruz on the shelf with an ACL injury. 

"The California Kid," Urijah Faber could be looking at his last title shot in the UFC when he takes on the versatile Renan Barao. 

Opening up the main card, welterweights Chris Clements and Matt Riddle are ready to throw down and put on a show. 

Staying at 170 pounds, Brian "Bad Boy" Ebersole has no issues fighting twice in one month when he steps up against James Head. 

In a heavyweight clash, Cheick "The French Sensation" Kongo squares off against Shawn "The Savage" Jordan in what could be an entertaining slug fest. 

In the co-main event of the evening, Hector "Lightning" Lombard makes his long-awaited Octagon debut against Tim "The Barbarian" Boetsch. 

Predicting the action this week are Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnists Dan Hiergesell, Jeffrey McKinney, Matt Juul and myself, John Heinis. 

Take a look inside to get an in-depth analysis of the action.
