UFC 201 features a stacked main card that promises an exciting night for fight fans. Let's get into it!

Robbie Lawler vs. Tyron Woodley.

Since arriving in the UFC, Robbie Lawler has become one of the most polarizing figures in the sport. His charisma, skill, and indomitable spirit have earned the respect of MMA fans the world over, but "Ruthless" is not flawless. Why do we love Lawler? It's simple. He's MMA's Rocky Balboa. He's a slow starter with the conditioning and resilience tofinish his opponents in thelater rounds.

This time, however, hestands across the cage from Tyron Woodley, a powerful striker who looks to end fights early. If Lawler can weather the initial storm, he'll likelyretain his title. If not, UFC 201 will end with the words, "The new welterweight champion of the world..."

Rose Namajunas vs. Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

By simply looking at their records, you could easily say that Karolina Kowalkiewicz is the favorite to win this fight, but look a little closer. Kowalkiewicz's opponents have been mediocre at best.

Rose Namajunas, however, holds victories over three top ten stawweights. Sure, Kowalkiewicz is a great striker, but Namajunas' wrestling and ground game are superior. Rose Namajunas will look to take this fight to the ground and finish her opponent via submission.

Matt Brown vs. Jake Ellenberger.

Matt Brown is a sadistic punching machine. He will stand toe-to-toe with anyone and swing until he either wins or falls to the canvas unconscious. His opponent could not be any different. Jake Ellenberger was once a serious contender, but has fallen by the wayside over the past few years.

Now, he seems to retreat rather than advance, fighting not to lose, instead of fighting to win. "The Immortal" Matt Brown should finish this fight early.

Erik Perez vs. Francisco Rivera.

Neither of these men are current contenders in the bantamweight division. Despite that, this fight does look promising. Erik Perez has finished 11 of his 15 wins by knockout, and Francisco Rivera is looking to bounce back after a string of controversial losses. Perez has lost momentum after only winning 2 of his last 4 fights, but that shouldn't stop him from picking up the victory.

Ryan Benoit vs. Fredy Serrano.

FredySerrano appears to be out-gunned, despite his stellar stand-up game. His opponent, Ryan Benoit, is equally talented on his feet and possesses a ground game the Serrano just does not have. This fight may be replacing Ian McCall vs. Justin Scoggins, but it doesn't bring the same firepower to the card. Look forRyan Benoit to win this bout by TKO.
