The Ultimate Fighting Championships have worked in tandem with the US Military Services to put together the third event in cooperation with a US military base, with the upcoming UFC: Fight for the Troops 2 event being held at Fort Hood in Texas in the days before Super Bowl betting. Melvin Guillard has stepped in to replace Kenny Florian in the main event, after the latter was forced to pull out with a knee injury, while a host of featherweights from the WEC will continue their transition. That includes the chance for Mark Hominick to take on George Roop for the chance to become the top contender for the UFC Featherweight championship.

(11-1-0) Evan Dunham vs. Melvin Guillard (26-8-2)

Guillard was pulled from the preliminary card and boosted to the main event to take on Dunham after Florian was forced out of the event, and that has created somewhat of a mismatch at the top. The Young Assassin has won three straight fights, but will be in tough against Dunham, who has won 11 of 12 as a professional. A black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the 29-year old Dunham was handed his first loss by split decision to Sean Sherk in a bout that was recognized with Fight of the Night honors. Dunham will be eager to rebound, and it will be Guillard that faces his wrath.

Pick: Dunham

(3-0-0) Matt Mitrione vs. Tim Hague (12-4-0)

The only heavyweight bout of the night will feature the return of Tim Hague from Aggression MMA, as the Canadian takes on the undefeated Matt Mitrione. Hague dominated the lesser ranks with two wins in the other promotion, but has lost his last three fights in the UFC, and will face a tough task to get back on track against the former NFL lineman, who last dropped Joey Beltran at UFC 119.

Pick: Mitrione

(19-8-0) Mark Hominick vs. George Roop (11-6-1)

Four straight wins have landed Hominick the chance to become the No. 1 contender for the UFC Featherweight championship. All that stands in his way now is a bout against George Roop, who makes the sports betting transition from the WEC where he had strung together consecutive wins.

Pick: Hominick

(5-2-0) Pat Barry vs. Joey Beltran (12-4-0)

Beltran will have a tough time rebounding from a loss to Mitrione at UFC 119 when he takes on Barry, who has lost two of his last three. Barry has been submitted by Tim Hague and Mirko Cro Cop in the past two years, but those losses book-ended a convincing win over Antoni Hardonk, a sportsbook promo fight that earned Knockout of the Night honors.

Pick: Barry

(17-4-0) Cole Miller vs. Matt Wiman (12-5-0)

Consecutive wins for both fighters landed each the chance to compete on the main card. Miller has scored Submission of the Night honors over Dan Lauzon and Ross Pearson, and will extend his streak when he gets Wiman to the ground.

Pick: Wiman
