ERICK SILVA VS MIKE RHODES
WISEMAN PREDICTION: ERICK SILVA VIA SUBMISSION
WINNER: ERICK SILVA VIA 1:15 FIRST ROUND SUBMISSION
Wiseman: Silva had a hot date or something, so he simply locks up the choke for the submission win. Outstanding performance by Silva.
ELIAS SILVERIO VS RASHID MAGOMEDOV
WISEMAN PREDICTION: RASHID MAGOMEDOV VIA UNANIMOUS DECISION
WINNER: RASHID MAGOMEDOV VIA 4:57 RD 3 TKO
Wiseman: A rather uneventful fight turned on a late left hook by Rashid, who swarmed in the nick of time for the stoppage. This could be what catapults Magodemov to the next level.
ANTONIO CARLOS JUNIOR VS PATRICK CUMMINS
WISEMAN PREDICTION: PATRICK CUMMINS VIA TKO
WINNER: PATRICK CUMMINS VIA UNANIMOUS DECISION (30-27, 30-27, 30-27)
Wiseman: Yet another case where wrestling trumped Jiu-Jitsu. Cummins smothered Carlos Jr. with his wrestling and the Brazilian could not keep the fight standing. Great win for Cummins.
RENAN BARAO VS MITCH GAGNON
WISEMAN PREDICTION: RENAN BARAO VIA TKO
WINNER: RENAN BARAO VIA THIRD ROUND SUBMISSION
Wiseman: Gagnon valiantly tried to strike and landed some nice shots, but Barao took them all and landed some of his own. He stuffed Gagnon’s takedowns, which sapped the starch out of Mitch and set him up. Barao landed the takedown, and locked in the arm triangle. A valiant performance by the Canadian, but Barao was better.

WISEMAN PREDICTION: LYOTO MACHIDA VIA TKO
WINNER: LYOTO MACHIDA VIA 1:02 FIRST ROUND TKO
Wiseman: One kick was all it took for the Doberman to fall. Lyoto found an opening early and put it to bed before Dollaway could start anything. Another highlight reel finish for The Dragon.
