This Saturday the UFC comes to Fox for its 18th installment of combat sporting all the way from that place that is right next to New York since New York is never going host the sport of MMA... Newark, New Jersey! New title contenders will rise and a possible future title contender will have a chance to ASCEND to that next level. (Joke in there for the two of you DBZ fans out there that might also regard Sage Northcutt with this reference...) Rumble Johnson seeks to get another crack the championship belt, while Bader looks to get the marquee name that launches him into a title picture that he arguably should have already been in. Josh Barnett and Ben Rothwell go at it in a matchup of two big, mean, dudes. And Zack Morris stops time to tell you whats up, and show you some sweet, sweet, moves.

The former champ returns to take what he never lost. A wild battle of top 5 lightweights. The big boys throwing down at heavyweight. All of that and more taking place on this special Sunday UFC card. Check out our predictions below.
UFC Bantamweight Championship
TJ Dillashaw (c) v. Dominick Cruz
We are only a few days away and I'm still not convinced this fight is going to happen. You can't really blame me, Dominick Cruz has 4 leg injuries in the last 4 years and has only fought once in that time frame. Regardless, the man who never lost the bantamweight title in the cage returns to reclaim what was his against a surging TJ Dillashaw. In Cruz's absense, Dillashaw has managed to take the UFC bantamweight title off of a very tough champion in Renan Barao and do so with a style that appears to borrow heavily from Cruz's movement-heavy approach. This is a very tough fight to call, but I'm going with Dominick Cruz. He has managed to convince me that ring rust wont be an issue and I remember his fights from before the injury. In a nutshell: he hits you and you can't hit him back. Dillashaw has been great, but I think Dominick solves the puzzle. Cruz by decision.
Picking Dillashaw: Kid P, DJ Mark, Gooms
Picking Cruz: Dr. Law
