Tweet from the night before UFC 162:

 

After going a perfect 5-for-5 in my predictions on the main card the first time Chris Weidman took on Anderson Silva, tonight’s card brings several intriguing match-ups that could go either way. The final UFC card of 2013 is very tough to call. With that said though, here’s my official predictions…

Prelim fights on Fox Sports One at 5pm PST / 8pm EST:

Siyar Bahadurzada > John Howard (170 pounds)

Dennis Siver > Manvel Gamburyan (145 pounds)

Gleison Tibau > Michael Johnson (155 pounds)

Uriah Hall > Chris Leben (185 pounds)

PPV at 7pm PST / 10 pm PST

Dustin Poirier > Diego Brandao (145 pounds)

Jim Miller > Fabricio Camoes (155 pounds)

Josh Barnett > Travis Browne (Heavyweight)

Ronda Rousey > Miesha Tate (135lbs for women’s bantamweight title)

Chris Weidman > Anderson Silva (185lbs for middleweight title)
