Fight Forecast returns to look at this Thursday's UFC Fight Night 80 card, which takes place at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas. Fight Forecast previews the event by providing the fighter's career StrikeScore as well as UFC Fantasy predictions, betting odds, Kountermove prices, DraftKings prices and Fight Matrix rankings.

UFC Fantasy numbers are the percent of players who have picked each fighter to win. (Numbers are current as of 12/9/2015 2:30 PM EST)
