Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card. But first, a message from Dana White.

MAIN CARD (7PM/4PM PT)

ALEX PERIEIRA (4-1-0) VS. BRUNO SILVA (22-6-0)

UFC Vegas 50

Andrews: A good fight on paper. Silva is smaller but seems to have a lot of experience knocking out opponents. But he has been tapped in ll six of his losses. And at 6-4, Perieira is a big boy. Going with Alex.

Andrews Prediction: Alex Pereira via TKO

DREW DOBER (23-11-0, 1NC) VS. TERRENCE MCKINNEY (12-3-0)

UFC Vegas 50

Andrews: McKinney is taking this fight on short notice, which should be a fun one. Going with Terrence to make a big splash.

Andrews Prediction: Terrence McKinney via TKO

KHALIL ROUNTREE JR. (9-5-0, 1NC) VS. KARL ROBERSON (9-4-0)

UFC Vegas 50

Andrews: Going with Rountree to stop Roberson, who is a little rusty.

Andrews Prediction: Khalil Rountree via TKO

#12 SODIQ YUSUFF VS. #15 ALEX CACERES (19-12-0, 1 NC)

#10 MARLON MORAES (23-9-1) VS. #14 SONG YADONG (18-5-1, 1NC)

UFC Vegas 50

Andrews Prediction: Song Yadong via UD
