Here are links to my preview/predictions.

PART ONE

PART TWO

PART THREE

PART FOUR

* An update on Henry Martinez: He is a division I wrestler(Oklahoma State) and a black belt in BJJ. He might prove quite the challenge to Riddle. I think that he holds great promise as a fighter, but he is fighting on such short notice in a higher weight class than what he's used to. Thanks to Aintnosunshine for the tip on Martinez for anyone who wasn't aware of Martinez's full background.

* Stephen Thompson update: He's a black belt in Japanese Jiujitsu and and blue belt in BJJ. He trains under 8th degree BJJ black belt Carlos Machado. So in addition to his fantastic striking, he can probably grapple as well. Link to the MMA Fighting Article discussing it.

Good luck with your picks!
