Saturday night, the UFC circus sets up the big top here in lovely Seattle. The card is absolutely stacked, and as always, we’ll be making our pick and filling you in on who we think should win each fight. This time, we’re talking about the preliminary bouts, which take place on FX, sans the John Albert vs. Scott Jorgensen fight which will be shown on Facebook. Here’s the who, what and why of the prelim fights.
Yves Edwards vs. Jeremy Stephens
This is a clash of two very experienced veterans who have a ton of natural ability, and was scheduled to take place back in Minnesota, but Dana was unable to spring Stephens from the pokey in time for the fight to materialize. This is a must win for both fighters, as they are both coming off of losses and 1-2 in their last three. I like Yves a ton, but Jeremy Stephens is going to be too strong for Yves. Expect some crisp standup, to turn into a wrestling match, that is controlled by Stephens. Jeremy Stephens by Unanimous Decision.
