Silva vs. Gustafsson
Alexander Gustafsson and Thiago Silva make their living primarily as strikers, although Brett Okamoto thinks this match could be decided on the ground.
Stann vs. Sakara
Alessio Sakara is making his comeback in this match after being sidelined for a year. Brian Stann is looking to get back on track after a loss to Chael Sonnen
Thiago vs. Bahadurzada
Both Paulo Thiago and Siyar Bahadurzada are coming off wins, although Bahadurzada hasn't fought since mid-May of last year.
Dennis Siver lost by submission to Donald Cerrone in his last matchup, while Diego Nunes managed a decision over Manvel Gamburyan.
Page vs. Pickett
Brad Pickett and Damacio Page will be fighting to reverse bad trends -- Pickett lost his last match to Renan Barao, while Page is on a two-match losing streak.
