Demian Maia beat "Super" Mario Miranda via unanimous decision
Gray Maynard beat Kenny Florian via unanimous decision
Nate Diaz beat Marcus Davis via submission
Prelims on Spike:
Joe Lauzon beat Gabe "I want cake" Ruediger via submission
Nik Lentz over Andre Winner via unanimous decision
The string of great UFC shows hit a snag here with a mostly boring fight card. Lauzon's win was really impressive (you have to see how fast he transitioned his moves while on the ground) and of course Randy Couture proved that Toney is not ready for MMA and probably never will be. Edgar, IMO, proved that BJ Penn cannot get motivated for any fight nowadays as he mostly owned Penn for five rounds. You could have given Penn round 2, but after that Edgar easily outclassed BJ.
With boring fights from Maia, Gray and Lentz, the card felt like it dragged and turned a good show into a missable show.

I'll go with Johnson, thanks in a large part to his starting position, wins the race and while Hamlin and Harvick posts top-10 finishes, it (unfortunately) won't be enough to stop JJ from winning his fifth straight title.
