My honest feelings about every fight on the card:

Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche - More or less a publicity stunt
Dan Henderson vs. Lyoto Machida - Great fight between two warriors who have proven themselves time and time again
Urijah Faber vs. Ivan Menjivar - Faber making what'll be his last failed title run
Josh Koscheck vs. Robbie Lawler - One fighter is just a much better version of the other. Chance of big KO
Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub - Probable KO. Maybe a gasfest
Mike Chiesa vs. Anton Kuivanen - TUF winner picking up an easy win against a guy with one foot out the door already.
Court McGee vs. Josh Neer - Two fighters that should be cut on a PPV
Caros Fodor vs. Sam Stout - SF challenger fighter against a perenial underachiever
Dennis Bermudez vs. Matt Grice - Quality prospect bolstering his record
Brock Jardine vs. Kenny Robertson - Two guys who don't see 2014
Neil Magny vs. Jon Manley - Same as above.

Top to bottom this might be the weakest PPV in years. The fights could very well be good, but they just don't mean anything. I'm skipping it and watching Machida/Hendo tomorrow.
