Top Three Candidates:
Carlos Condit vs. Georges St-Pierre
If Condit is as game as his supporters have claimed leading up to his UFC 154 run-in with Georges St-Pierre, Saturday night's main event could provide some real fireworks.
Both fighters are reputed for their varied arsenals of skills, so this bout could be one that features a little bit of everything, all coming at the highest level.
Johny Hendricks vs. Martin Kampmann
Though superficially a match between a striker and a wrestler, Hendricks vs. Kampmann will be contested between two well-rounded competitors.
Kampmann's technique versus Hendricks' speed, Kampmann's takedown defense versus Hendricks' powerful wrestling and Kampmann's sly submission game versus Hendricks' defensive grappling entail three intriguing storylines heading into this welterweight title eliminator.
John Makdessi vs. Sam Stout
What's not to love about a pair of Canadian knockout artists slinging leather at each other in front of some bi-supportive fans?
Makdessi vs. Stout promises to deliver some moments of explosive action, and the potential for a highlight reel knockout is very present.
The Prediction: Hendricks vs. Kampmann
Kampmann has exhibited some remarkable grit in each of his last two fights, and we know that Hendricks goes hard from bell to bell.
Unless one fighter pulls out a quick stoppage, I don't see this fight turning into anything but an epic struggle.
Not to mention, a welterweight title shot is a very realistic possibility for the winner.
