Typically, I try to point out which contests feature prospects worth keeping an eye on. Well… there really isn’t anything worth pointing out for UFC Fight Night: Machida vs. Anders. Some may say Marlon Vera, but he’s had seven fights in the UFC already. I’m not saying he isn’t going to continue to improve, but can he be labeled a prospect anymore after that many contests?
Perhaps I’d point out a potential barnburne but there isn’t a fight that is guaranteed to be can’t-miss. Some would say Tim Means is good for action and they’d be right. But his dance partner, Sergio Moraes, has a tendency of turning in curious performances. Basically, he makes it impossible to make any guarantees for what type of fight we’ll get. I’m not sure what to tell you about this portion of the card. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t notable either.
