Wiseman: Sicilia fought tougher opponents and stood the test as he survived the TUF house. Choi has a good record and is a good striker, but when it comes to level of competition, it’s Sicilia. Granted, this fight has been rescheduled twice before, that has only given Sicilia more opportunity to improve without having to think about injuries to himself like Choi. I see the technical striking and confidence of Sicilia giving Choi problems.

Wiseman Prediction: Sam Sicilia via TKO

YOSHIHIRO “SEXYAMA” AKIYAMA (14-5-0, 2NC) VS ALBERTO “SOLDIER OF GOD” MINA (11-0-0)

Wiseman: These guys both have the same skill setting, so it should be interesting. The advantage, is really that Mina only has one UFC fight and that was 1.5 years ago. Meanwhile, Akiyama has been around and faced everyone in the division. His power and Judo are of a different league and since this fight is in Korea I feel bad for Mina.

Wiseman Prediction : Yoshihiro “Sexyama” Akiyama via TKO

#7 “THE STUN GUN” DONG HYUN KIM (20-3-1, 1NC) VS DOMINIC “SHONUFF” WATERS (9-3-0)

Wiseman: I can’t believe this fight is happening. Waters is doomed. Kim has only lost against the top three guys in the division and Waters hasn’t even been introduced yet. Actually crazy. There’s always a chance for an upset, but in Korea against such an opponent, Waters is in over his head.

Wiseman Prediction: Dong Hyun Kim via TKO

MAIN EVENT 

BENSON “SMOOTH” HENDERSON (22-5-0) VS JORGE “GAMEBRED” MASVIDAL (29-9-0)

Wiseman: The well rounded ability of Henderson I feel will be too much for Masvidal. The stand up, wrestling, and submission will make Masvidal constantly guessing and certainly test his cardio. These guys are both decision fighters so be prepared for the full 25 mins. Even though I don’t think this is a good weight class for Henderson, I see him winning this one.

Wiseman Prediction: Benson Henderson via unanimous decision.
