In the wake of a lukewarm show in Chicago, expectations for UFC 143 on Saturday are high—at least, to our trainee.

“Boss, I predict an array of different finishes, a night Jiu-Jitsu fans won’t be forgetting anytime soon! There will be triangles, back attacks, and even never-before-seen subs—even picking “Submission of the Night” will be tough, you can count on it,” he said, flapping his arms like a seal.

Now what about you, who do you think will be the big standout of the night? Do you agree with the predictions below? Comment and let us know.
