Felice Herrig is one of the more well-known UFC strawweight fighters.

And for good reason.

Along with being a top challenger, Herrig also loves to show off her killer body. Recently, she conducted a photo shoot for “Muscle & Fitness,” and the gallery has been released:

It’s pay-per-view time once again for the Octagon, as UFC 192 takes place this Saturday night.

Set for the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, Daniel Cormier will make his first light heavyweight title defense against former contender Alexander Gustafsson.

Cormier won the vacant belt with a victory over Anthony Johnson earlier this year after UFC officials stripped Jon Jones of the title. Gustafsson, who challenged Jones and went the full 25 minutes, is coming off a loss to “Rumble.”

Along with the title fight, welterweight contenders Tyron Woodley and Johny Hendricks square off, along with a key 205-pound battle that could determine the next title challenger when Rashad Evans meets Ryan Bader.

Heavyweights Shawn Jordan and Ruslan Magomedov, along with female bantamweights Jessica Eye and Julianna Pena, round out the main card.

Flyweights Joseph Benavidez and Ali Bagautinov highlight the FOX Sports 1 prelims, while three bouts start the night on UFC Fight Pass.

As always, FightLine will have you covered all week long with the latest news and information leading up to the night of the fights. We’ll also have play-by-play Saturday of the action from Houston.

Saitama, Japan played host to UFC Fight Night 75 Saturday evening, as heavyweights Josh Barnett and Roy Nelson rocked the Octagon.

Barnett and Nelson went the full five rounds, as the former UFC champion earned a decision victory. Barnett moved to 11-2 in his last 13 with the win, remaining right on the cusp of contending once more for the title.

Not many people gave Uriah Hall a chance vs. Gegard Mousasi, but the former Ultimate Fighter runner-up proved them wrong. Hall landed with a spinning back-kick to the face and followed up with a flying knee and several shots in stunning Mousasi and scoring a second round TKO victory.

Recent UFC flyweight title contender Kyoji Horiguchi made a triumphant return to Japan by dominating Chico Camus and earning a decision. Horiguchi picked up his 16th career win and remained on a short list of challengers to Demetrious Johnson after fighting “Mighty Mouse” earlier this year for four-plus rounds.

Takeya Mizugaki used his striking and takedown defense to turn back the effort of George Roop, claiming a decision victory. Mizugaki snapped a two-fight losing streak with the win and tied a bantamweight record in the UFC and WEC with 10 victories.

It took just 28 seconds for Diego Brandao to put Katsunori Kikuno on ice, as the former Ultimate Fighter winner floored Kikuno with a right. He continued to swarm his opponent, forcing the referee to quickly step in.

The finals of “Road to UFC: Japan” was declared a draw between Mizuto Hirota and Teruto Ishihara.

Nakamura Keita finished off the preliminary card with an incredible technical submission win over Li Jingliang. Keita was likely behind heading into the third round, but took the back and choked Jingliang out cold.

Nick Hein and Kajan Johnson picked up decision victories over Yusuke Kasuya and Naoyuki Kotani.

Shinsho Anzai kicked off the night by claiming a third round TKO victory over Roger Zapata after an injury forced a stop to the contest.

Barnett, Hall, Brandao and Nakamura all earned “Performance of the Night” bonuses and an additional $50,000 for their wins.

The card also features middleweights Gegard Mousasi and Uriah Hall in the co-main event, as Hall replaces Roan Carneiro.

MAIN CARD

Mizuto Hirota vs. Teruto Ishihara in the finals of “Road to UFC: Japan”

We’ll begin the main card with the featherweight finals in the “Road to UFC: Japan” tournament, as Mizuto Hirota takes on Teruto Ishihara.

Round 1: Some pretty awesome blue hair being sported by Hirota, which matches his trunks. Right as they slap hands, Ishihara throws a huge kick right to the body that lands. Hirota smiles and comes back with a nice combo. It might have been a slip, but Ishihara brings Hirota down. However, he can’t keep him there and they are quickly back to the feet. Hirota catches him against the fence and lands a stiff right, but it’s Ishihara with the more productivity. Another knockdown for Ishihara to end the round.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Ishihara

Round 2: Ishihara puts out his hand for another touch of gloves and this time, Hirota declines. He lands again and knocks down Hirota, as the fans voice their approval. Ishihara continues to duck and move, countering when the opening becomes available. Hirota connects, but it does nothing to concern Ishihara. Just like that, he lands a left that takes Ishihara down for a brief moment. Takedown for Hirota with 90 seconds left and he is working to take the back. Much like Ishihara did at the end of the first, Hirota finishes the second strong.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Hirota

Round 3: Ishihara scores with a knockdown and tries to pounce, but Hirota works to his feet right away. Four straight shots land by Hirota, as he is finding his range at a much better pace than Ishihara. Another strong finish for Hirota, and it just might allow the veteran fighter to claim the decision.

FightLine scores the round 10-9 for Hirota

Mizuto Hirota vs. Teruto Ishihara ruled a draw (29-28, 28-29, 29-29)

A key bantamweight contest highlights tonight’s Bellator 143 event, as Joe Warren battles LC Davis.

Set for the State Farm Arena in Hidalgo, Texas and Spike TV, Warren and Davis will meet in a scheduled three-round affair.

Warren, a former two-division champion, had his five-fight win streak snapped this past March by Marcos Galvao in a contest that cost him the title. Davis is 7-1 in his last eight, including three straight wins for Bellator.

Below is a fight-by-fight prediction for the night:

MAIN CARD (Spike TV/9 p.m. ET)

Joe Warren vs. LC Davis

Warren has the advantage in terms of wrestling, but Davis appears to be a step ahead in the stand-up. If this fight goes the distance, it could be interesting to see which fighter gasses first.

The former champion has fought 20-plus minutes before, while Davis was involved in an incredible 15-minute battle with Hideo Tokoro recently.

LC Davis over Joe Warren via second round TKO

Joey Beltran vs. Kendall Grove

Two former UFC fighters and veterans of the sport meet in a middleweight affair. It’s incredible to think about some of the fighters these two have met in the past.

Kendall Grove over Joey Beltran via decision

Emmanuel Sanchez vs. Henry Corrales

The featherweight ranks can use some new blood, and the winner of Sanchez-Corrales has a good shot at moving on up.

Emmanuel Sanchez over Henry Corrales via second round submission

Ewerton Teixeira vs. Vinicius Queiroz

Big-boys kick-start the televised card, as heavyweights Teixeira and Queiros love to throw bombs.
