After a crazy UFC 199, where there was more drama outside the cage then inside (and that's saying something given all the incredible fights we witnessed that night), it's comforting to think maybe this event won't feel so bonkers. UFC arrives in Ottawa for the first time and comes packing a pretty fun fight card on paper. Headlining the event is a fantastic fight between Rory MacDonald and Stephen Thompson, in what will most likely be a number one contenders match. Also on the card is an intriguing match between Donald Cerrone and Patrick Cote. The rest of the card includes popular fighters like Steve Bosse, Olivoer Aubin-Mercier, Valerie Letourneau and Joanne Calderwood.

It is the cementing of legacies versus a moment of redemption. Will past losses be avenged? Or will the tides press on, confirming the past moments that resonate with us today. These are the story lines going into UFC 199: Rockhold vs Bisping II. Originally slated to defend in a rematch against the recently dethroned Chris Weidman, Rockhold now takes on Michael Bisping in his first, and almost entirely improbable title shot. For some reason the UFC brass has also deemed it necessary to give us the Cruz vs Faber rubber match that none of us really wanted. This card is deep on action fighters that should make for an action packed night. Max Holloway continues his ascent toward title contendership, while an ever aging Dan Henderson will continue to carry o see if he can land that mega-nuke right hand against the always dangerous (in the first round) Hector Lombard. But personally, I am most awaiting the return of the king, Bobby Green, who has a potential fight of the night bonus in waiting against the always exciting to watch, Dustin Poirier. Check out our picks for the fights.

|Luke feelin' himself|
And then... a handsome man entered the room. As an FYI, that is how every story involving Luke Rockhold begins. I just thought you should know. At this point, there aren't too many superlatives I can give out that you wouldn't already know for the man who beat the man, who beat THE MAN. Rockhold is every bit a complete fighter with nasty power while striking, and may the Seven protect you if he gets control of you on the ground. Michael Bisping knows this first hand with the way he was so effortlessly rolled over into a nasty top-side guillotine in their first outing. This is a title fight so I feel like I should say more, but this title shot is more so just a resume padder. Rockhold by choke submission, round 2.
