Aldo over Hominick.
GSP over Shields (But I want to see Shields take this).
Machida over Couture for now....

pretty good picks man, but let me critique it a little bit.

bendo vs bocek is probably the sleeper on the card, bocek is always getting underrated, he should have gotten the decision over jim miller and everyone thought hazelett was going to run him over. bendo just doesnt have that good of stirking and his wrestling is still questionable since he couldnt take down varner and barely got pettis down when he wanted. i think bocek chokes him out like cerrone did..except the ref will actually see it this time.

valencia has nothing for menjivar except a bullcrap decision, which will not happen. most people just dont know who menjivar is or have even seen him fight, he got worked pretty bad against pickett and this one will not go the distance, menjivar hits real hard and has pretty slick jitz, both things that valencia has struggled against in the past. menjivar stops him within 3 rounds.

randy couture is going to get smashed by machida, i dont mean to sound too confident in a prediction but machida is just a horrible match for couture, machidas grappling is always overlooked but he does some pretty brilliant techniques with his clinch work and dont be shocked to see randy get taken down in the clinch, its machidas specialty, he took down tito, quinton and shogun from the clinch. he will stop randy in the first round with stirkes, randy has nothing for machida standing and it will be damn near impossible to take machida down.

i dont agree with the jensen or garza picks but both are pretty close competitive fights, im not worried too much about jmac other than the injurty layoff, i think he's better than jensen but again the layoff is troubling. and i think garza needs to tap out jabouin to win in canada.

brilz vs matyushenko is 50/50 but i gotta give the edge to brilz because of how they both did against lil nog recently, brilz should have won that decision. vladdy looked good against his last opponent but brilz has underrated grappling and i think he wins based on how active he will be but not really confident in it.

Those are some bold picks there Outlaw. Bendo subbing Bocek? Hominick stopping Aldo. I disagree completely but I respect your guts.
