UFC 139 Prediction Results: I was 245-169-4 coming in, and did amazing. This was one of the best cards the UFC has ever had. The main event lived up to the hype and way more then that. It was the Fight of the Year, and possibly the Best Fight Ever. It certainly was the best fight I ever seen. Anyways, some thoughts. Henderson and Rua are warriors, the Cung Le vs Silva fight ended in a bad stoppage, Faber rebounded and looked great doing it, and the other 2 fights starting out excited and dulled down. Still an amazing night.  Overall, I went 10-2 and I am now 255-172-4… my winning percentage rises to 60%
