“UFC Tonight” rolled out the welcome mat earlier this week for Urijah Faber, and promptly put the former WEC champion in the spotlight for UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson.
Faber, along with co-hosts Chael Sonnen and Kenny Florian, offered up their predictions for Saturday’s main and co-main event.
Here’s what each had to say in regards to the matches.
Rashad Evans vs. Dan Henderson
Chael Sonnen: “I’m going with a draw.”
Kenny Florian: “I think Rashad is going to take this one.”
Urijah Faber: I’m going with Dan, he’s the man.”
Roy Nelson vs. Stipe Miocic
Chael: “I think the timing is actually going to favor Stipe, but Roy Nelson gets the win.”
Kenny: “I think Stipe’s got a ton of potential, but I think facing Roy Nelson is going to be tough. Roy Nelson is going to take this.”
Urijah: “Take away the center piece of Roy Nelson and he’s a very well-rounded, dangerous fighter. I’m going with him.”
