So according to Wikipedia Pettis vs Cerrone is going to be on this card as well. Haven't seen it anywhere else though.

so the fact the card is so stacked, does it have any chance of it being in Seattle? Seattle's supposed to host 1 ufc event this year but being this card is so stacked does it have ANY chance of being this event.

Sadly i think Seattle is getting the Ufc on Fx card 6 days later on Friday Dec 14.

I asked Helwani, Fowlkes, Dana and Mike Chiapetta (mmafighting.com)

Chiapetta said he would look into it, a few hours later said it looked like Seattle wouldnt get the big Fox card

Ufc Events Attended:

Ufc Fight Night: Davis Vs Nogueira, Ufc 131, Ufc 143, Ufc 148, Ufc on Fox 5, Ufc 156, Ufc on Fox 8

Rua vs Gustafsson is the most intresting Lt.Heavyweight fight for a long time. After Jones beat Evans all the top-10 guys have been meisured up except Gustafsson. Jones vs Henderson, how I do hope that Henderson will give Jones a run for the money and not get pulverised like all the rest but realisticly I think Jones will just destroy him. Machida has the best shot of beating Jones. But has he already lost vs Jones and Jones is still young and improving. I suspect that Jones will win the fight if not by stoppage but by a 5 round beating of Machida like he did to Rashad.

Now to Gustafsson...
The excitement is that we do not know yet his capacity. Maybe he will be ground and pounded to death vs Rua or Jones but also maybe he will be able to knock them out with heavy landing punches.

He has the punch accuracy and footwork that Liddell had when he was at his peak but he has better handspeed so is much harder to defend against. No one so far has been able to outmaneuver Gustafsson in the standup department.

Rua will bring it and I do not expect this fight to go the full 3 rounds (or is it 5 rounds ?)

Some have said San Jose but they just went there in July, Dallas and San Antonio has been thrown around, Charlotte will only get it in my dreams. :/
