Long before the flyweight and light heavyweight championships are contested tonight, 14 fighters will put their heads in the guillotine of the undercard.
For these fighters, winning is not about fame and cementing a legacy—winning means job security and a future in the sport of mixed martial arts.
Because of this, the fighters on the preliminary card face arguably more pressure than their main event counterparts, so let us show a little respect by getting their bouts some publicity.
Log in to Facebook at 7 p.m. ET to catch the first bout, and then tune in to FX at 8 p.m. ET for the remainder of the preliminary card tonight.
In the meantime, let's rank these fights and determine which ones are bound to be studs and which will be relegated duds.
