UFC 170 limps toward the finish line this weekend, as the card headlined by women's bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey and Sara McMann is afoot. It is a card that has been crippled by injury, as men such as Rashad Evans, Francisco Rivera and Bryan Caraway have all been pulled from the card.
This card has some decent fights, but most of the title implications take place on the undercard. Jessica Eye and Alexis Davis battle for what could be top contention, while Raphael Assuncao meets Pedro Munhoz in a bout which could make him top contender with a win.
It truly was a dismal night for my picks last time in Brazil. It wasn't even close, as I got hosed with a 1-6 record on the prelims. It has really been a rough start to 2014 for me, so we will see if UFC 170 changes my fortunes.
Here are the preliminary card predictions for UFC 170.
2014 Riley's Record: 16-17
Last Event: UFC Fight Night 36 (1-6)
