Could you imagine that? I'd lose my mind

Great card filled with what can only be described as fireworks! It looks like a 'passing of the torch' car as well for 2 fights, but we'll just have to wait and see.

Bendo vs. Diaz- I see Benson just being to strong and getting takedowns on Diaz. Nate will pepper him on the feet, but I don't think it'll be enough. It'll be a scrappy fight, that's for sure.

Verdict: Bendo by UD

Shogun vs. Gustafsson- Tough fight for me as I can really see this going either way. Gus has the reach, but Shogun is a berserker and has heart/chin for days. If Shogun gasses via too much grappling and grinding on the cage, I say Gus UD. But, If Shogun clips him 1 or 2 times, I say he finishes via TKO rd 2. This matchup has fireworks written all over it!!!

Verdict: Shogun via TKO Rd 2

Bj vs. Rory- It's simple, what BJ shows up? Rory is younger, stronger and faster... yet he could still lose to the craftier Penn. I want to see Penn from the Diego fight, because that Penn would catch Rory and end the fight brutally. My head says Rory and my gut says Penn. I think BJ comes out round 1 and takes it decisively and then gasses and we see another fight like BJ/Fitch, although Rory could inflict much more damage.

Verdict: BJ via split dec.

I'm going with the old guard just because I think they have a bit left in the tank. Either way, all us fans get an epic, FREE, HD card and as they say, Everybody wins!

Why not load it up? Plus that fight being a title eliminator fight and on the same night as the championship fight will do a lot for that future match up draw wise.

That is one immense card already, with only 3 fights announced. All epic encounters

But they shouldn't get us too excited, these fights will change because someone WILL get injured.

I say wins for Gustafsson-UD, McDonald-TKO, Diaz-Submission.

Well damn. If the ratings aren't good for this card then all hope is lost. Plus they'll be able to advertise during football games. No excuses.

What a card, thanks UFC.

The Mauler/Shogun will be epic. I see the Mauler going to sleep on this one.

Yeah but the good thing is, this is in early December so in November and December teams will be trying to lock down the divisions and battle for playoff spots so tons of people will be interested and tuning in. I think they're gonna do another special like Road To The Octagon and the Olympics won't be on. They've also got two guys from the last FOX cards which were entertaining, a title fight, and a guy who the casuals know in BJ.

I'm hoping this one gets a good rating, I don't know what the fourth fight will be but anything else from here on out is icing on the cake. If it's Cowboy/Pettis that's a hell of a card but that seems like it's too much for a free card, even if it is FOX. A card like that should be something people will be willing to pay for.

The old schoolers will take the new kids to school this event.

BJ to smash Rory.

Shogun to smash Gus.

HOLY SHIT. This card is beyond epic. Just hope it isn't ruined by injuries, would be amazing to see all 3 of these + 1 other fight (maybe Cerrone vs Pettis?) on this card. I actually cannot wait!
