I don't agree with that entirely because the whole reason I am going to tune into watch it was for the "Razor" Rob fight.. Besides Faber, he's my favorite to watch.

Beebe vs. Yahya is a good matchup, I'm curious to see that battle as well.

Yeah a lot of great fights on this card.

What are your predictions and why?

I'm picking Crunkilton at the moment because of his ability to ALWAYS get the fight to the ground and at the same time he can hold his own standing.

Beebe - Yahya is another hard one. Rani doesn't exactly strike me as one of the most athletic 135ers so I think Beebe will be able to muscle him down. The problem with picking Beebe is that it's a 5 round fight and I don't know if he can keep up his wrestling pace for all those rounds without getting caught in a sub.
Yahya is also training with one of the best camps out there in Team Quest Temecula.

Cowboy - Gomez is another tough one. Gomez is intense, in your face and will probably be able to take Cowboy down but Cowboy is extremely well-rounded. He doesn't seem very athletic or have that finishing power in his punches or kicks but his subs seem pretty slick. If Gomez can stay out of the sub attempts I think he wins the fight.

there have been a few changes to the card. i think cub is not fighting on this card. Cowboy is taking on Kenneth Alexander (not Sergio Gomez) and Blas Avena is facing Joe Benoit (not Kevin Knabjan). This is according to the WEC website

I've been trying to get them to change the fights so that we can make our predictions on them. No luck so far.

After looking at the full official card, had the pulver fight stay on the card, it would've been my fourth most anticipated fight.

1: Razor vs Cleat
2: Stann vs Jeremiah
3: Yayha vs Beebe
4: Pulver vs Swanson
5: Forbes vs Baker

Now Forbes/Baker is my fourth, and Alessio/Brito is my fifth.
