We are in the midst of a stretch that features four straight weekends with UFC events, and the third card on that lineup should produce some exciting matchups in Minnesota.

A fight between heavyweight contenders Travis Browne and Antonio Silva headlines UFC on FX 5, and the main card has some of the promotion's most promising fighters set to compete.

Guys like John Dodson, Jussier Formiga and Jake Ellenberger are all slowly becoming more and more well known, and since all three fighters possess near-championship-caliber skills, Friday night’s main card should produce some highlights for the up-and-coming fighters.

But as much fun as the main card looks, the fighters in the preliminary bouts on Fuel TV may produce even more action than their better-known counterparts.

A lightweight slugfest between Jeremy Stephens and Yves Edwards headlines the prelim portion of the card, and with a lineup stacked with battles in the lower weight classes, we can expect a ton of action on Fuel TV Friday night.

Who's going to pull out the win in Minnesota? Bleacher Report Featured Columnists John Heinis, Matt Juul, Dwight Wakabayashi and Vince Carey have the answers.
