Main event features perennial UFC vet Donald (Cowboy) Cerrone in his ninth fight in 26 months. The warrior is currently on a three-fight losing streak, while Medeiros is on a three-fight win streak. Could this be Cowboy’s last fight if he loses? hard to pick against Medeiros, but going to be rooting for Cowboy here!
Co-main features the big men Lewis and Tybura. Lewis just had his seven-fight win streak broken with a loss to veteran Mark Hunt in June, while Tybura had a three-fight streak broken in November with a loss to former heavyweight champ Fabrício Werdum in a 5 round decision. Both fighters are looking to get closer to a title shot with a victory. Current UFC rankings have Lewis at seven with Tybura at nine. I like both fighters but rooting for Lewis to win and get in the top five.
