This is a tough one to make a pick for. My heart wants to see Vitor score another KO victory but, my head is screaming Luke is to well rounded to lose this fight.

Another great match-up. The winner should probably get a title shot.
Odds should be close to even, maybe Belfort a slight favorite.

Sounds like a fuel card
But may just be a ppv card in June Brazil

Big nog vs werdum
Belfort vs rockhold

When they say headline a "major " event

Major in my mind is ppv
Fuel cards are the bottom of the picking order

I wonder if Vitor is mad he didnt get a title shot. He seemed like he really thought it was going to happen after he beat Bisping.
I think he KOs Rockhold.
