The UFC comes to the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin tonight, all for FREE. Yes, the event will air for free on Versus tonight beginning at 9 pm.
We have a star studded line up that looks very promising for fireworks.
In the Main Event, we have Chris "Lights Out" Lytle, who was on a 4 fight win streak before falling to Brian Ebersole via unanimous decision. Lytle will be facing Dan "The Outlaw" Hardy who has dropped his last 3 fights. Hardy is fighting for his UFC life and will come out "gunz a blazzin", lucky for him Lytle likes to trade punches as well. This fight should be explosive with two really good fighters duking it out. I see the whole fight standing and Hardy going down.
I'm picking Chris Lytle via KO in the 2nd round.
The next fight should really be the main event, former WEC champion Ben Henderson faces New Jersey native and winner of his last 7, Jim Miller. Both have great stand up and ground games. Millers striking to takedowns is very crisp and he will use that to get on top of Henderson and put on a grinding and grueling ground and pound. Ben has to defend vs the takedown and try to keep it standing and catch Miller.
Jim Miller wins via unamious decision.
This fight is my "fight of the night" prediction with two up and coming stars meeting in the cage. Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone will square off vs Jiu-jitsu wiz Charles Oliveira in the lightweight division. Cerrone has excellent stand up and his background is in kickboxing, but is ground game is very active and very fluid. Cowboy will look to keep this fight on the feet and try to defend any takedown attempts. Oliveira's ground game is on a high level, but i think he will look to test his stand up against the former WEC lightweight star.
Charles Oliveira wins via submissionn (arm bar) 1st round.
The rest of the card is stack with young talent. Some of the fighters competing tonight on the undercard are Amir Sadollah, C.B. Dollaway, Jacob Volkman, BruceLeeRoy, Leonard Garcia, Joseph Benavidez, Cole Miller and Ed Herman.
Remember to catch UFC on Versus 5 tonight starting 9 pm ET.
