Tomorrow is UFC Fight Night 25 and where would we be without some overture towards predicting an outcome? Despite being dramatically overshadowed by the boxing mega event between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz, there are still some interesting bouts with an incredibly important main event.

Predictions for the main card in the video below. The rest for the preliminary card after that.

Main card (Spike TV)

Jake Ellenberger vs. Jake Shields
Court McGee vs. Dongi Yang
Jonathan Brookins vs. Erik Koch
Alan Belcher vs. Jason MacDonald

Preliminary card (Facebook)

Cody McKenzie vs. Vagner Rocha

In grappling tournaments McKenzie's tricks don't go very far. Rocha should have enough skills to stop them. Rocha via unanimous decision.


Shamar Bailey vs. Evan Dunham

Dunham is more talented and capable than Bailey in virtually every possible category. I'd be shocked if he lost. Dunham by TKO.


Lance Benoist vs. Matt Riddle

Benoist's fights have all ended in the first round, which is MMA's ultimate red flag. Riddle by TKO.


Ken Stone vs. Donny Walker

Stone either no ability to take a shot or terrible luck. He should beat Walker, but something tells me I won't be shocked if he doesn't. Stone by decision.


Seth Baczynski vs. Clay Harvison

Despite the layoff, Baczynski is the more talented and skilled fighter. Harvison could make it a dirty fight, but that shouldn't last. Baczynski by submission.


Mike Stumpf vs. T.J. Waldburger

Stumpf's notice is too short. Waldburger by TKO.


Mike Lullo vs. Robert Peralta

Peralta made his name and this opportunity with the Peralta win. I say that beats rubber guard. Peralta by decision.


Justin Edwards vs. Jorge Lopez

Lopez should absolutely body Edwards. Lopez by KO.
