Erick Silva vs. Jason High
"Erick Silva's gotta stay off the bottom, now he's going to get taken down he needs to get up off the bottom. Jason High is a very easy guy to figure out, doesn't mean he's a very easy guy to stop but I'm taking Erick Silva."
Thiago Silva vs. Rafael Cavalcante
"Thee guys love their job Kenny, this Thiago Silva is about aggressive as and mean as anybody to get in the Octagon you can see it on his face, he's mean, he's intimidating and Feijao's been off for a little while he's a former Strikeforce champion, I like Feijao in a dogfight."
Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira vs. Fabricio Werdum
"Look we've all been waiting for Big Nog to quit fighting, to go, ‘ I can't do this anymore.' And need to accept to accept he's still go it. This guy can still fight. He's ranked number eight in the world and that might even be a little bit low. Now he's got a test here in Werdum, Werdum needs this more he's looking a little sharper right now. Werdum should win this fight so I'm going to take Werdum."
