    Woooooooo let's kick off this network right!

    Joe Lauzon vs Michael Johnson:
    While Johnson is a superior athlete, Lauzon is a tough out for anyone in the UFC. A true vet in the 155 lb division, Lauzon is a well rounded vet with no holes in his game. Factor in Johnson's past trouble with cardio and Lauzon's pace and this becomes a very difficult fight for "The Menace."
    Joe Lauzon via submission.

    Uriah Hall vs John Howard:
    This should be a barn burner as both men love to stand and trade. Howard has the advantage in sheer power but Uriah is a KO machine himself. Another main issue is that this is Howard's first fight back in the octagon and Hall's first since losing at the TUF Finale. Both men know the importance of this fight and it may lead to less aggressive stand up. Overall, Hall's technique will win this for him.
    Uriah Hall via Dec

    Matt Brown vs Mike Pyle:
    Two well rounded vets square off in what should be a showcase for Matt Brown. Brown has been on fire of late and even though Pyle is a tough fighter, at this point in his career, beating Brown would be quite difficult.
    Matt Brown via TKO

    Urijah Faber vs Yuri Alcantara:
    Do I really need to do this one?
    Urijah Faber via whatever he wants.

    Travis Browne vs Allistair Overeem:
    Another fight with two tough stand up fighters. Overeem's stock has dropped drastically since his KO loss to Bigfoot, but he's still a top tier HW fighter. Travis Browne has some serious power and some fancy striking, as well as having Greg Jackson drawing up his game plan. Browne will try to push Overeem's cardio and then pour it on late. However, Overeem is a title contender and Travis Browne is not on that level yet.
    Allistair Overeem via TKO

    Chael Sonnen vs Mauricio Rua:
    This is essentially a must win fight for both fighters if they wish to stay relevant in the 205 lb division. We all know what Chael Sonnen's game plan will be, shooting and GnP. We saw Shogun come out and wrestle with Dan Henderson in their epic war and there's no reason to think he may do some of the same at the opening in this fight. Since Shogun has had past cardio issues, it will be important for him to get things done in the earlier rounds as it is a 5 round fight. Chael Sonnen is quite tough but he often folds under pressure and Shogun certainly brings lots of pressure.
    Shogun via TKO
