Just read about this. Don't really care for it, but the more MMA the better. I love seeing Sapp's facial expressions during fighting. The new guy has good credentials, we shall see.

I think I'm more excited for this card than UFC 92. Now if only they can make a Sergey fight official.

Maybe the UFC should give this guy a title shot after he beats Sapp, then maybe Herring (if time permits)

I think that's impossible, since Sapp really sucks and would gladly take a dive for $5 and a coca cola.

He gonna fight with that mask on as the anime character or not, that's what I wanna know.

But in all seriousness: that's a good prospect!
