UFC Fight Nights 48 and 49: Main Card Staff Predictions

Benson Henderson can't believe these predictions.

Here's hoping fight fans eat their Wheaties Saturday morning. With an average of 1.3 UFC fights per hour happening throughout the waking day, it's going to be quite the marathon for anyone hoping to take in all of the action.

UFC Fight Night 48 initiates the smorgasbord from Macau, China at around 9 a.m. ET. After a largely anonymous card, the event culminates with a novelty fight between Michael "The Count" Bisping and Cung "It's Just the Lighting" Le.

That evening, the promotion transports to the American Heartland—Tulsa, Oklahoma, to be exact. That card, known as UFC Fight Night 49, is headlined by Benson Henderson and Rafael dos Anjos in a lightweight bout with important implications for the divisions. Plus, did you know Henderson has never had a sip of alcohol? Simply amazing.

Between the two main cards, there are 10 bouts happening on Saturday. Who can keep track of such things?

We can, that is who. Riley "Kobra" Kontek. Craig "Live Blog" Amos. James "The Athlete" MacDonald. Sean "Salmon" Smith. And me, Scott Harris. We're here to give you predictions for each main card bout and some knowledge as well. Let's get it on.
