A big win will keep the winner in the title shot conversation. Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

ALEXANDER HERNANDEZ (12-4-0) VS. MIKE BREEDEN (10-3-0)

Andrews: Breeden is replacing Leonardo Santos on short notice. Advantage: Hernandez.

Andrews Prediction: Alexander Hernandez via UD

MISHA CIRKUNOV (15-6-0) VS. KRZYSZTOF JOTKO (22-5-0)

Andrews: Cirkunov should be the bigger guy here but can he push the pace or get the fight to the floor? After some early trouble, Cirkunov gets the tap.

Andrews Prediction: Misha Cirkunov via submission

ALEX OLIVEIRA (22-10-1, 1NC) VS. NIKO PRICE (14-5-0)

Andrews: Both guys need a win. This could goΒ eitherΒ way. I think Price edges it out.

Andrews Prediction: NikoΒ Price via UD

KEVIN HOLLAND (21-7-0) VS. KYLE DAUKAUS (10-2-0)

Andrews: Holland has trained for the takedown with Johny Hendricks. I think it will help him in this contest.

Andrews Prediction: Kevin Holland via UD

MAIN EVENT

THIAGO SANTOS (21-9-0) VS. JOHNNY WALKER (18-5-0)

Andrews: Santos will be tough, but Walker if he is prepared should be able to use his size and talent to put him away.

Andrews Prediction: Johnny Walker via TKO

Enjoy the fights.
