UFC on Fox is stacked with exciting fights and is capped off by the bantamweight title fight.

In the bantamweight title fight, TJ Dillashaw will look to defend his belt against the man he beat to get it, Renan Barao.

Dillashaw vs. Barao two was already scheduled before, but an injury forced Barao out of the fight. That led to Dillashaw fighting defending his belt against Joe Soto. Dillashaw beat Soto by TKO in the fifth and final round.

Barao will be looking to get the belt that Dillashaw took from him when he lost in the fifth and final round as well. Dillashaw controlled the whole fight and ended up finishing Barao to become the champion.

There are some other great fights on the card as well:

#2 Miesha Tate vs. #5 Jessica Eye

#7 Edson Barboza vs. Paul Felder

Joe Lauzon vs. Takanori Gomi

#15 Gian Villante vs. Tom Lawlor

Jim Miller vs. Danny Castillo

Here are my predictions for the Fight Night bonuses:

Fight of the Night:

For starters, I just need to mention that Miller and Lauzon are both on this card. If you do not know why I am mentioning that then you should probably stop reading about MMA. Miller vs. Lauzon was one of the greatest fights I have ever seen. It is second on my list to the new top dog, Lawler vs. Macdonald 2. However, neither of these fighters’ fights will get the nod from me here. My prediction for Fight of the Night goes to the title fight of Dillashaw vs. Barao 2. The first time these two fought, Dillashaw dominated the whole fight and won in the fifth round. If there is a knock on Dillashaw, it is that he does not finish fights early anymore. His last four fights have went to the last round and two of them went to a decision, one in which he lost. I think that Barao is ready for Dillashaw this time around and this is going to be an absolute war and earn the Fight of the Night bonus.

Performance of the Night:

I did mention Lauzon being on this card correct? Lauzon earns bonuses more than anyone and he will continue that on Saturday. I predict he will submit Gomi early and earn himself another bonus.

One thing I do not need to mention is my belief in Paul Felder, even though I just mentioned it. The Philadelphia prospect is fighting in the biggest fight of his career and what a better way to show even more fans he is legitimate than knocking out Barboza in the first round, and as Felder always seems to do, viciously. Another vicious knockout, maybe not as vicious as he last one that got him a bonus and most likely the KO of the Year, but he will earn a Performance of the Night bonus once again.
