Though it's way too early to predict, Fighting Insider is sharing its insights on who's going to make it between The Count and El Conquistador. Warning: Your opinion might be otherwise.

As UFC goes back to the land down under, veteran brawler – Michael Bisping – will square off against the 38-year-old, Jorge Rivera. It should be recalled that Michael Bisiping’s last trip in Australia was also the last time he was defeated inside the Octagon. But nevertheless, The Count just shook off his set back from Wanderlei Silva last UFC 110 with two record victories over Dan Miller and Yoshihiro Akiyama.

Sakara and Rivera are both coming from a good fight. These middleweights are also climbing up to the division. And at long last, the "Legionarius" and "El Conquistador" will finally meet in Germany for the upcoming UFC 122.

Originally to fight at UFC 118 which is set this weekend at Boston, middleweight Alessio Sakara and Jorge Rivera will now meet at UFC 122 this coming November 13 in Germany. Alessio “Legionarius” Sakara was supposed to have his big break after getting matched up with Nate Marquadt at UFC 116 last July 3, in MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada. Unfortunately, he had to pull out from the card due to his father’s untimely death. The Italian Striker is carrying himself up to the middleweight ladder after his winning streak against Thales Leites at UFC 101 and James Irvin at UFC on Versus 1. Rivera, on the other hand, is coming from dismantling Nate Quarry at UFC Fight Night 21 last March. His professional record was raised from 18-7 with the help of his three straight victory bouts. This UFC veteran also has a career mark of 7-5 in the UFC, including his best performance knock out fight against the “Rock.” If he wins, the 38-year-old fighter is likely to face the big guys of UFC middleweight division.
