Maurico "Shogun" Rua vs Dan Henderson
This has that Pride feeling just because these two were stars for the organization. I feel like this is one of those matches that is suprising that it never happened. Im sure that anyone that was a hugePride fan back in the day would have loved to have seen this fight, and is happy that it is finally happening. I think the winner of this fight should take Rashad Evans on for the number one contender spot just because Rashad was suppost to fight for the title like three times now. I think that we will see another fight will have Dan controlling the topgame. I think Shogun has a shot to be the first man to KO Dan but good luck. I think he will hurt Dan, but Dan seems to come right back and KO you right after. I think Dan will control most of the fight with his wrestling. I think he can finish Shogun but again, good luck.
Dan Henderson def. Maurico "Shogun" Rua - Unanimous Decision
Wanderlei Silva vs Chung Le
I would love to see Wanderlei win, because he is a true champ and it would be hard to watch him retire. Sadly I don't think that is what will happen. Le is a badass striker and a solid wrestler. Even if Wanderlei hurts Le on the feet, Le can take him down and finish him there. I dont think he can take nearly as much punishment as he use too, and Le has 7 wins with 7 KOs. If Wanderlei is going to win it would have to be by using technical striking.
Chung Le def. Wanderlei "The Axe Murder" Silva - 1st Round (T) KO - Knockout of the Night
Urijah Faber vs Brian Bowles
I think this will be the hardest fight ever for Brian and one of the hardest for Urijah. Its hard to say who will win, but I think that Urijah is faster and much more explosive. I think Brian is more than capable to win but I think Urijah will take this one. I think he will win by taking down Brian and beat him down for the fight. I do think it will be close though.
Urijah Faber def. Brian Bowles - Unanimous Decision
Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann vs Rick Story
I think this will be a ever fun fight to watch. Story is coming off of that loss, while Martin is coming off two questionable decision losses to Jake Shields and Diago Sanchez. I think that Martin will have a hard time with Story, but I think he will push him.
Rick Story def. Martin "The Hitman" Kampmann - Unanimous Decision - Fight of the Night
Kyle Kingsbury def. Stephan Bonnar - Unanimous Decision
Ryan "Darth" Bader def. Jason Brilz - 2nd Round (T) KO
