Frankie Edgar (-470) Gegard Mousasi (-600) Neil Magney (-120) - (+159)
Frankie Edgar vs Urijah Faber
Edgar will have the striking advantage and for one time in his career won't have the size disadvantage which can be a big difference in this fight because Faber only chance to win is in the grappling exchanges but that will be hard to do vs the bigger man who is Edgar. Edgar is also faster and can point strike his way to victory so I am taking Edgar by decision.
Gegard Mousasi vs Costa Phillippou
The only way Costa can win is to land big early otherwise this is Mousasi fight to lose. Mousasi is just the better MMA fighter and is more dynamic in all the facets of MMA. Mousasi by TKO.
Neil Magny vs Hyun Gyu Lim
Magny uses his range far more effectively than Lim and Magny can match his size and reach. Lim has terrible take down defense and I think if Magny wants too he can take Lim down at will. I don't see Magny getting hit too often and using his wrestling game to control Lim and win a decision.
