Andre Arlovski vs Tanner Boser 

Hunter Bos: Tanner Boser 

Erik Larson: Tanner Boser has impressively crisp striking and footwork; I see him as too fast for the aging Arlovski and landing a clean right hand that KOs Arlovski in the first or early in the second.

Jack Kennedy: I have to take Boser. I have the ultimate respect for Arlovski, but at the end of the day Boser is the younger more powerful striker. I have Boser winning early.

Thiago Santos vs Glover Teixeira

Hunter Bos: Glover Teixeira 

Erik Larson: Thiago Santos will be too quick for Glover and still has far too much power and ability on the ground to be stuck underneath Glover for 3-4 rounds. I see Thiago landing a sweet Rumble uppercut and ending the fight early.

Jack Kennedy: Obviously there are massive implications for this fight. Both fighters have a lot of experience and have recently fought in a 5 round fight. Though Glover could very well win it, I think Thiago Santos will be too quick and powerful. I have Santos by KO/TKO
