Featherweight – Godofredo Pepey vs Mike “El Cucuy” De La Torre
Jessica: Other than a severe wrestling at the hands of Darren Elkins, Pepey has been pretty good. Mike DLT is a nickname thief, and he deserves a thrashing. Pepey wins by second round TKO. THAT WAY YOU LEARN, MICHAEL.
Jason: All nickname thieves must go down, I agree, Jessica. That said, Pepey is 4-4 in the UFC and this is anyone’s fight. I’ll take De La Torre but I don’t like it.
Jared: Pepey via some crazy flying sh*t.
Bill: “Godofredo Pepey” is absolutely in the running for greatest fighter name in history. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I picked some guy named “Mike” over him.
Middleweight – Thiago “de Lima Marreta” Santos vs Eric “Zebrinha” Spicely
Jessica: Santos looked solid until he ran into Gegard Mousasi, which isn’t embarrassing in the least. Spicely got subbed by Smile ‘N’ Sam, which isn’t necessarily bad, but it’s always a little puzzling when a KO artist pulls off a submission. I’m taking Santos to kickbox Spicely a lot and win by third round TKO.
Jason: Santos all day. I don’t think Spicely has anything for him standing up or on the ground.
Jared: Thiago Santos is going to lay hands on Spicely until he falls over. Estimated time of stoppage, 0:45 round 1.
Bill: On paper, this is a spectacularly lopsided fight. I’ll side with my colleagues and pick Santos in a walk.
Lightweight – Francisco “Massaranduba” Trinaldo vs Paul “The Irish Dragon” Felder
Jessica: I’m not ready to completely write off Felder, but I think Trinaldo’s on too much of a hot streak. Francisco is going to stifle Felder’s fun spinny times and deliver a Massarandrubbing. Trinaldo wins by decision.
