#4 Ryan Bader (20-4) Vs #5 Rashad Evans (2-3-1)

With his last fight coming against Chael Sonnen at UFC167, Suga finished the fight in the first round by TKO. Now back and fully healthy the former champion is looking to make another run at the title, but with some big names in the division like his training partner #1 ranked light heavyweight contender Anthony Rumble Johnson and #3 ranked contender Glover Teixeira, Evans will probably need more than a victory over Bader to get his name back in the title picture. These two men are warriors and veterans in the MMA world. Both men are desperate for a win and want nothing more than another crack at the title.

(C) Daniel Cormier (16-1) Vs #2 Alexander Gustafsson (16-3)
In the main event of UFC 192 Daniel Cormier defends recently crowned title against The Mauler Alexander Gustafsson. Everyone knows that DC wants his rematch with Jon Jones, but will have to wait and deal with Gus. DC has only one lose and that came against Jones back at UFC182. Cormier says “That was the most devastating lose in my whole career”. When Jones found himself in trouble with the law again, Dana White suspended him and stripped him of his title. Jones was set to defend his title against Rumble Johnson, But when the suspension came down, there was only one man for the job and that was DC. Getting his shot at redemption, DC took the best that rumble could offer and ended the fight in the 3rd round by Submission. Now DC will have another tough challenge with the tall and long Alexander Gustafsson. The Mauler has lost two of his last three fights, when he got his title shot against jones, Gus gave Bones all he had but it wasn’t enough or the victory. Turning around in his next fight he defeated Jimi Manuwa. Next up for Gustafsson was Rumble Johnson, Gus was at an advantage as the fight was in his home country. Rumble Johnson was on a mission that night and the bombs that Johnson threw were just too much for Gus to handle and he was defeated by TKO. Now back in the saddle and ready to go Gus knows whats at stake and has stated that this time he is ready.
When UFC hits Texas for UFC 192 the roof is gonna blow off by the end of the night because this card is loaded. Be ready for some knockdown drag-em out fights. These fights will change the rankings and possibly set up future fights down the line, but when the octagon door closes and Mr. Buffer himself lets you know that ITS TIME!!!!!!!!! be ready because everything is always BIGGER IN TEXAS
