UFC 139: 8 Most Exciting Fighters on the Undercard
UFC 139 is less than a day away and is sure to be action packed.
The main card is headlined by some of the biggest stars in MMA history and features Former Pride and Strikeforce champ Dan Henderson taking on former UFC champ Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in the main event.
While the main card is stacked, the undercard should not go unnoticed.
It features a mix of TUF alum, UFC vets and former champions.
Here's a look at eights guys who will entertain you on the undercard tomorrow night.
Ryan Bader has been on a slump as of late.
After going 12-0, Bader lost two straight fights to current UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones and former champ Tito Ortiz in shocking fashion.
Although Bader has had a few less than stellar wins, he has also shown that he could win in exciting fashion.
Because Bader's job could be on the line tomorrow, expect him to fight like his life depends on it.
Chris Weidman will look to continue to climb the middleweight ladder once again as he takes on Tom Lawlor.
Wiedman is a former D-1 All American wrestler who is not afraid to stand and bang or take the fight to the ground.
Weidman won Submission of the Night in his last bout, and has been called one of the top prospects in the middleweight division.
Another top prospect competing on the undercard is Michael McDonald.
At just 20 years old, McDonald has won 13 of his 14 pro fights, many by submission or knockout.
McDonald already has a Fight of the Night bonus to his name, and could add another one as he takes on UFC new comer Alex Soto.
Rafael Dos Anjos
Rafael dos Anjos is a fighter that may slip under some people's radars.
The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu ace has had some memorable fights in the UFC and has won Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night fight bonuses.
Although he has seven wins by submission, dos Anjos proved in his last fight that he could be just as dangerous in the stand up game as he knocked out top lightweight George Sotiropoulos.
Although Nick Pace has only had eight fights, he has left us with some exciting moments.
At Bellator 11, Pace won his fight with a devastating flying knee.
In his UFC debut, Pace defeated Will Campuzano with what he referred to as the "Pace Choke".
Much like his opponent tomorrow night, Jason Brilz is in need of a win.
Brilz is 3-3 in the UFC with two straight losses.
To his credit, though, two of his losses could, and perhaps should, have went his way.
Despite this, Brilz is still an exciting fighter and has won 14 fights by knockout or submission.

Tom Lawlor may be one of the best showmen in MMA history.
Lawlor has imitated wrestling great Hulk Hogan, former UFC champion Dan "The Beast" Severn and had some strange, yet funny moments with Seth Petruzelli.
Although he has not looked like it thus far in the UFC, Miguel Torres is one of the most exciting bantamweights in the UFC.
Torres is a former WEC champion who has 22 wins by submission and and nine by knockout.
Torres also has two Fight of the Night awards and a Submission of the Night award to his name.
Although he may fight a more conservative style now, Torres may need to step it up a notch if he wants to prove he is still a top contender in the bantamweight division.
