The main event should be an interesting one, as middleweight contenders Luke Rockhold and Vitor Belfort will meet to possibly jump into top contender talks.
Rockhold is the final Strikeforce champion and finds himself on a nine-fight win streak. Most of the wins have come against lower-ranked individuals, but his last three wins over Ronaldo Souza, Keith Jardine and Tim Kennedy have shown Rockhold is ready for top-level opposition.
Belfort is on a hot streak right now if you erase his title fight up a weight class against Jon Jones. In his last three middleweight affairs, Vitor submitted Anthony Johnson and knocked out Yoshihiro Akiyama and Michael Bisping in devastating fashion.
Though Rockhold has been impressive in his fights, many of his fights were tailor-made. Jardine is over the hill, the Souza fight he arguably could have lost, despite being the better wrestler and striker, and Kennedy is a submission wrestler, a style Rockhold matches up favorably against.
Vitor brings with him well-rounded skills and immense power. At any point, if he touches Rockhold's chin, the Strikeforce import could go down hard.
Vitor will do that within three rounds.
Prediction: Belfort def. Rockhold via knockout
