Though a light heavyweight showdown between Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida wil be eclipsing the UFC 140 pay-per-view event, there are several battles on the undercard to look out for.
Beyond the main card, Ion television and Facebook preliminaries will host a ton of memorable matches that will effect the futures of their respective divisions.
You won't be missing out on much in this welterweight excursion.
Though Attonito has looked to be a formidable opponent for any man, in his last outing against Daniel Roberts, he exhibited his lack of awareness in being able to finish his man, who was clearly fatigued and exhausted. Ultimately, the American Top Team product settled for decision victory over the Cesar Gracie product, which he will do yet again when he takes on UFC newcomer Jake Hecht this Saturday.
Hecht is talented but falters against top tier competition, which he will do here when he strikes out in his first outing inside the Octagon.
In a battle between lightweight grapplers, it will be Lentz who walks away with the victory.
Bocek's previous outings against wrestlers has proven to be his Achilles heel, as the submission specialist turned in lackluster performances at the hands of Benson Henderson, Jim Miller and Frankie Edgar in the past.
Though "The Carny" doesn't yield the same prestige that those men do, he does hail from a touted wrestling background, which will be on display when he sends the Canadian packing on the heels of a two fight skid with the UFC.
The former UFC title challenger makes his way back to the lightweight division opposite of John Makdessi.
Hallman wasn't a small welterweight to begin with, so him entering the 155-pound class will be a huge advantage for "Superman," who will use his size and obvious ground prowess to dominate Makdessi, who remains one of the smaller men in the lightweight division.
The Canadian is a wily striker who might give Hallman some hairy moments on the feet, though he will have little to offer on the ground where Hallman takes a decision win.
In this mismatch of epic proportions, Croatian slugger Igor Pokrajac meets with former contender Krzysztof Soszynski.
"The Polish Experiment" will entertain Pokrajac on the feet just long enough before he takes his opponent to the mat and submits him with his patented kimura. A short night and easy work for the "Polish Experiment."
In this lightweight affair, grappling aces John Cholish and Mitch Clarke will meet one another in their UFC debuts.
Both men hail from touted submission backgrounds, with Cholish coming out of the famed Renzo Gracie academy, where he trains under the aforementioned Pride and UFC veteran as well as the highly-regarded John Danaher.
This will be a tight-knit battle throughout with many exciting grappling exchanges, and though a winner is undecided, the fans can bare witness to some memorable work between arguably two of the best prospects in the division.
In this middleweight battle, sluggers Jared Hamman and Constantinos Philippou meet one another come this Saturday.
The winner will move one step closer towards the upper echelon of the division, while the loser will likely be kissing canvas. These two men wield some of the heaviest blows in their weight class, with Hamman having built his career in the 205-pound class and knocking out nearly all opposition in his path.
Philippou hails from a touted boxing background, which eventually brought him to the finals of the Golden Gloves tourney just a few years ago.
Expect fireworks and a sure-fire KO at the end of this 185-pound affair.
Outside of a featherweight battle pitting Chan Sung Jung against Mark Hominick, this bantamweight tilt could be an early candidate for "Fight of the Night" honors.
Both Walel Watson and Yves Jabouin are too of the best kickboxers in the division, with the Canadian relying on his knockout power while the lanker Watson uses his size and reach to his advantage.
These two high energy strikers will bring the crowd on its feet regardless if the bout lasts the full 15 minutes or ends inside of the first round.
