This Saturday, the UFC heads to the KeyArena in Seattle with one of best fight cards ever put together for cable television.

In the main event, the athletic Ben Henderson defends his lightweight title against Nate Diaz, a fierce brawler with a mean streak matched only by his elite submission skills.

In the co-main event, former UFC champion Mauricio "Shogun" Rua faces off against Swedish slugger Alexander Gustafsson.

There's plenty more further down the main card, as UFC legend B.J. Penn attempts to salvage his legendary status with a win against fast-rising Canadian star Rory MacDonald.

Rounding out the broadcast, a revived Mike Swick faces a tough challenge against grizzled UFC veteran Matt Brown.

Overall, it's a stacked FOX card with interesting matchups galore.

Bleacher Report MMA Featured Columnists McKinley Noble, Sean Smith, Scott Harris, Kyle Symes, John Heinis and Matthew Roth are back with official main card predictions for UFC on Fox 5.

Take a look to see whom we picked to win it all this weekend.
