5-3-0 Nurmagomedov takes on 4-5-0 Smarks in this 145 lb fight. Expect this to be a fight based on the ground, but will Smarks need to change his intentions if he wants to come away with the win??

Hector "Insane" Numagodov (311110) vs Brent "Rampage" Reid (311976)
A close match on paper between 20yo wrestlers. Two wrestlers taking it to each other, both with winning records. Expect this to be a technical bout. Numagodov has slight weight advantage which could prove to be decisive.

Ispa Murhaa (319951) vs Maksim "Steel" Semenov (321855)
Debutant Murhaa takes on 2-0-0 Semenov in this 185lb match up. Semenov has slight advantages in height and weight, and is the older and more experienced fighter, but reports from Murhaa's camp suggest he was confident enough to request this match up.

Bobby "The Destroyer " Lashley (317592) vs Smackma "Dirty" Bitchup (319722)
Clinch appears to take on wrestle in this heavyweight matchup. 4-4-0 Lashley may have a slight advantage in termsof experience over 2-1-0 Bitchup, but this fight looks another one that could go all the way to a decision and is too close to call.
Fight 6 - 265 lbs
Anderson "Spider" Silva Jr (322388) vs "El Chico Malo" Samuel Andrade (321023)
Brazil meets Mexico in this classic American heavyweight clash. Debutant Brazilian Silva is an unknown quantity but reports are that he is a mean boxer. Winless Andrade (0-2-0) also pertains to be a pure boxer, so this could be a quick fight with plenty of action.
