UFC 198, or "Brazil's UFC 200" goes down this Saturday in Curitiba Brazil. It's a veritable who's-who of Brazilian stars in MMA which is headlined UFC heavyweight champion Fabricio Werdum putting his belt on the line against Stipe Miocic. The Brazilian star-studded event took a huge hit when it lost Anderson Silva to injury earlier in the week but card is still packed and will make for good eyeball watching this weekend.

Cyborg v. Leslie Smith
Smith has been talking a good game this week, stating that she will be known as "the woman who destroyed Cyborg." Well at least she's talking differently than everyone else who faces Cyborg. It won't make any difference however. One thing to watch out for is how different Cyborg looks cutting an additional five pounds. Cyborg by KO in 1st.
Picking Cyborg- All of us
Corey Anderson vs. Mauricio Rua
Picking Anderson- All of us
Matt Brown vs. Demian Maia
I know Brown asked for this fight, but I have to wonder if that was a smart choice. To say that Maia is much better on the ground would be an understatement. Maia will be able to get this fight to the ground fairly quickly and have his way with Brown. Maia by submission in 1st round.
Picking Maia- All of us.
