On Saturday, February 14, 2015, the UFC heads to the 1stBank Center in Broomfield, Colo. for UFC Fight Night: Henderson vs. Thatch. Since the first of the year, this event has been cursed by injuries. But thanks to former UFC lightweight champion, Benson Henderson, and his willingness to move up a weight class, UFC Fight Night 60 still has a respectable main event; standing across the cage from Henderson on Saturday night will be dangerous up and comer Brandon Thatch.

Even though UFC Fight Night 60 has had some turmoil, there are still some interesting matchups for the fans. A prime example of that is the co-main event between featherweights Max Holloway and Cole Miller. Holloway is one of the hottest prospects in the featherweight division and Miller is always involved in exciting fights.

While UFC Fight Night 60 is far from being the best fight card there are a few interesting matchups that have the potential to be exciting.

Ray Borg vs. Chris Kelades

Kicking off the Fox Sports 1 main card highly touted flyweight prospect in Borg takes on a Canadian veteran in Kelades. Kelades as pro since 2009 was victorious in his UFC debut last October, but he has yet to face a fighter like Borg. Borg still has a long way to go in his development but he has the tools to be a contender.

Pick: Borg via Unanimous Decision

Michel Prazeres vs. Kevin Lee

The second bout on the main card features a lightweight showdown between Prazeres and Lee. Prazeres is a very skilled grappler who is deadly on the ground but with a strong wrestling background Lee should be able to control where this fight takes place. At just 22 Lee is a young fighter fans should be keeping an eye on.

Pick: Lee via Unanimous Decision

Dan Kelly vs. Patrick Walsh 

The third bout on the main card features a middleweight bout between Walsh and Kelly. Walsh is a fighter with a lot of potential but he simply isn’t ready to face a fighter of Kelly’s stature. While Kelly doesn’t have an extensive MMA record his success and experience as an international Judoka makes him very dangerous. Look for the former four-time Olympian to dominate the youngster.

Pick: Kelly via first round Submission

Neil Magny vs. Kiichi Kunimoto

The fourth bout on the main card features a welterweight bout between Magny and Kunimoto; two fighters looking to continue their impressive runs. Kunimoto is currently riding a seven fight winning streak that included three in a row inside the Octagon. Magny on the other hand is coming off of an extremely impressive 2014 campaign which saw him go 5-0 inside the Octagon. As long as Magny can stay away from the ground game of Kunimoto he should be able to make it six in a row.

Pick: Magny via Unanimous Decision

Max Holloway vs. Cole Miller

The co-main event of the evening features a featherweight clash between elite prospect Holloway and gritty, exciting veteran Miller. A long time UFC veteran Miller has had some ups and downs in his career but no matter the situation Miller always brings his “A” game. With a six inch reach advantage and a slick ground game Miller presents an interesting challenger to the youngster.

While Miller has the tools to shock Holloway it’s unlikely that it will happen. Even though he is just 23 Holloway has proven that he is a killer in the cage; currently riding a four fight win streak with all four wins coming by way of stoppage. As long a Holloway can close the distance and keep the fight standing he will win.

Pick: Holloway via third round TKO

Benson Henderson vs. Brandon Thatch

The main event of the evening features an intriguing welterweight matchup between a highly touted prospect in Thatch and a former UFC lightweight champion in Henderson. It’s been over a year since Thatch last competed in the Octagon so cage rust could be a factor but I wouldn’t count on it. Sporting an 11-1 pro record with all 11 of his wins coming by first round stoppage Thatch is an extremely dangerous and exciting competitor.

Even though Henderson is taking this fight on short notice and moving up in weight don’t be surprised if we see the best version of Benson Henderson to date. Henderson feels like he got robbed against Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 59 and he is hungry to show the world he is still one of the best pound for pound fighters in the world.

Thatch is going to have a considerable height, size and reach advantage but it won’t matter. Henderson is going to show Thatch what it means to be elite and he’s going to prove he is still a worthy contender.

Pick: Henderson via Unanimous Decision
