Main card

Lightweight bout:  Spencer Fisher vs.  Caol Uno

David: Maybe its me- But I simply don't see the greatness of Uno (27-11-4,3-3-1)- admittedly, I have only seen his UFC fights (other than 32,37 &41) plus his Aoki fight on a BAD youtube, but Fisher (22-4,7-3) is overrated IMNHO as well. Fisher has had fights schedulded with Ken-Flo twice, only to have luck move them apart- a dominating win here moves them back toward each other- a fight with Grey Maynard maybe- a loss puts him vs Sherk in a win or go home matchup on Spike. Uno is going to be gunning for a 3rd fight with Penn and I bet he does not run across the ring again.  Uno is a submission MACHINE with 23 Sub victories- yet he has been KILLED on his feet, Fisher is not bad on the ground but this fight will test his sprawl. Uno is going to fight for the Finish- Fisher the win.

Joao: this is my pick for Fight of the Night. Both are very talented and exciting fighters. They are both past their respective primes but this should be an excellent fast-paced fight.

Both have submissions and striking in their arsenal and both have been having some losses as of late.

I have a feeling Fisher will get the upset win here.

Robert:  Uno makes his return to the UFC!!  Okay, I'm not that excited.  But this should be a good fight.  Uno is know for his grappling, and the guy loves the Rear Naked Choke.  Fisher is more of a striker, 11 of 22 victories coming by way of (T)KO.  I love these "clash of styles" fights.  If Uno can keep Fisher on the ground he'll have a good chance at winning.  Although Fisher has never been submitted.  It will be tough.  After a long drawn out battle, I see Fisher landing more shots and making it 3 in a row via decision.

Winner

David: Fisher KO 1
Joao: Spencer Fisher by decision
Robert: Fisher, Rd 3, Decision.
