Rory MacDonald vs. Jon Fitch
Mookie Alexander: The Bitcoin Bowl is upon us! So… how does Fitch win this? With his striking? Of course not. With his wrestling and grappling? Perhaps, but Rory has damn good takedown defense. Fitch is also in his 40s and while he has been winning, he’s objectively past his prime. This would’ve been a good measuring stick for Rory in 2010 when he was 21 years old, but unless he’s dangerously shopworn, he’ll handle Fitch easily. Rory MacDonald by TKO, round 3.
Victor Rodriguez: Fitch doesn’t have the striking chops to walk Rory down or hang with him in the pocket, and his wrestling won’t be enough against a stronger, younger, clever grappler like Rory. I’m just glad this welterweight GP is going to go a hell of a lot better than the heavyweight one. Low bar to clear, but take what you can get. Rory MacDonald.

Ilima-Lei Macfarlane vs. Veta Arteaga
Mookie Alexander: Arteaga can put it on her opponents with her striking, and she certainly has a chance to pull off the upset against Macfarlane, but eventually this fight will hit the ground and I don’t see how Veta can cope with Ilima-Lei’s grappling.
Whereas Arteaga will likely try and make Macfarlane uncomfortable wading forward with strikes and looking to clinch up, Macfarlane is much more skilled and composed.
Victor Rodriguez: Arteaga loves rushing inside and smashing opponents in the mouth, as well as pressing them against the cage. Not confident that she can do that against a slicker striker with good takedown defense and what is probably the best submission game in any flyweight division on earth right now. Ilima-Lei MacFarlane by submission.

Benson Henderson vs. Adam Piccolotti
Mookie Alexander: Henderson has looked fine against Roger Huerta and Saad Awad. It’s still really hard to try and outwrestle and outgrapple Bendo. That’s basically what Piccolotti has to do, and I don’t see that happening. Benson Henderson by unanimous decision.
Victor Rodriguez: Sure, he may have lost a step or two. No way I’m picking against Bendo here. He’s not that washed. Adam’s good, but he’s not ready for this level. Benson Henderson by decision.

Phil Davis vs. Liam McGeary
Mookie Alexander: Exactly how is McGeary supposed to win this? Aggressive sub hunting from the bottom? That didn’t work the lsat time. Wrestling? Davis has the advantage by miles? Striking? Phil is historically hard to hurt and tag cleanly, and McGeary won’t have much time to strike Davis if he’s on his back for so damn long. This is a weird rematch and it should be Davis winning again. Phil Davis by unanimous decision.
