JOSE RODRIGUEZ

, Last Updated: 9:15 AM ET

Forrest Griffin vs. Tito Ortiz: Ortiz needs to shake off the cage rust and Griffin needs to demonstrate his head is screwed on right after back-to-back losses. Tough fight to call, but Ortiz may have more to prove than Griffin. Prediction: Ortiz by decision.

Anthony Johnson vs. Josh Koscheck: Koscheck has energy to spare, but Johnson may have the heaviest hands in the 170-lb. class. Prediction: Johnson by first-round KO.

Phil Baroni vs. Amir Sadollah: Sadollah lasted 29 seconds in his last UFC fight, but Baroni hasn't looked good in years. Prediction: Sadollah by second- round submission.

Luiz Cane vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira: Little Nog's UFC debut couldn't be any tougher. Cane has only been beaten once in his career. Nogueira is coming off five straight wins. Prediction: Cane by second-round TKO.

Marcus Davis vs. Ben Saunders: Davis wants to put the split decision loss to No. 1 welterweight contender Dan Hardy behind him. Look for the puncher to attack Saunders early and often. Prediction: Davis by second-round TKO.

Kendall Grove vs. Jake Rosholt: Jake Rosholt beat Chris Leben in his last fight. Grove is coming off a loss to Ricardo Almeida. Prediction: Rosholt by first- round TKO.
