UFC 179 Predictions Main Event
Jose Aldo vs. Chad Mendes
Chad Mendes took two and a half years, five wins, and four knockouts to earn his rematch with Jose Aldo. In that span, Aldo only defended his belt three times against Chan Sung Jung, Ricardo Lamas and Frankie Edgar. The last time they fought, Aldo had a big advantage on the feet, but training with Duane Ludwig has upped Mendes game. Also, Aldo has shown to have a penchant for fading in the later rounds which could hurt him in a fight with Mendes. Aldo needs to knock Mendes out in the first two round or this fight will go to Mendes. That is what will happen in this fight as Mendes finishes the fight in the fifth round by TKO.
UFC 179 Predictions Co-Main Event
Glover Teixeira vs. Phil Davis
Davis is a good wrestler but Teixeira is a finisher. While he lost to Jon Jones, just about everybody that has faced the long running Light-Heavyweight champion. Davis on the other hand has not been so great as of late having not been the finisher since he first joined the UFC. Teixeira has fought and finished better fighters than Davis and he will do the same here with a knockout in the first round.

Darren Elkins vs. Lucas Martins
Lucas Martins has been on fire since his drop to 145, but when fighting Elkins the question is whether or not he can keep this fight standing. If martins can keep the fight standing he should win, but unfortunately, that will not happen in this fight as Elkins uses his wrestling to take this fight by decision.
