Whenever you see a UFC Fight Night or a UFC on Fox card advertised, the first thing that should come to your mind is a contender fight.

That is not the case with UFC on Fox 16.

UFC on Fox features a free title fight, a bantamweight title fight, between TJ Dillashaw and Renan Barao. This will be the second time the two have fought for the belt, with Dillashaw winning the first time to become champion.

The title fight is going to be great, but there are other fights that have fighters who will steal the show at UFC on Fox 16.

Jim Miller vs. Danny Castillo:

There was a time where Jim Miller was considered one of the top lightweights in the UFC, but after two straight losses, Miller may be overlooked in the division. He will be taking on Danny Castillo and will be looking to show he is still a legitimate fighter in the lightweight division.

Castillo may be coming off of two losses as well, but he ends 41% of his fights by KO/TKO and will be looking to make a statement on Saturday. However, I believe that the gas tank for Miller is still very full and he will impress everyone in the fight. Look for Miller to put on a show Saturday and show fans that he may have lost two fights in a row, but he is nowhere near done in the UFC. Jim Miller will steal the show at UFC on Fox 16 when he dominates Danny Castillo.

#7 Edson Barboza vs. Paul Felder:

Many are trying to predict the next big star in the UFC and some believe that Felder will be that guy. Coming off of his Knockout of the Year front-runner spinning back fist KO over Danny Castillo, Felder will now be facing the number seven ranked fighter in the lightweight division.

Barboza is one of the most dangerous strikers in the UFC and can end the fight in an instant. Felder has had the term prospect thrown around with his name, but with a win over a top ten fighter like Barboza, Felder could be talked about as a legitimate contender instead. This will not be an easy fight for Felder and Barboza could be the one to stop Felder from becoming the next big star. This will be Felder’s biggest test in the UFC, but I predict that he will step up the occasion and steal the show at UFC on Fox 16 with a dominant victory over #7 Edson Barboza.
