Yeah, that has a lot of curiosity value, with Terrel being out for so long. I still remember him knocking out Matt Lindland in about three and a half seconds, after Joe Rogan was billing him as being at the top of the "middleweight food chain" (even though MMA clearly has a "food web"). Herman is always fun because with how much he bigs himself up in the pre-match, he is always setting himself up for a laugh at his expense should he lose.

Karo, Joe Lauzon, Spencer Fisher, Ed Herman... seems solid to me so far!

Tito and Rashad two will be on that card.

Nog/Arlovski is rumored for that card.

Sounds pretty good to me.

Karo is on the card, so I don't know why the threadstarter is calling this card "absolute shit." I mean, KARO! is on the card. KARO! never, ever disappoints.

Nog vs AA should be really solid. Nog will push Arlovski, and I actually think Nog can pull off a sub. I mean, Cruz gave Arlovski trouble, and AA had to resort to cheating like mad to win.

Oh, and Spencer is on the card. Again, how can you say that this card, so far, looks like crap?

The rumored main card is this;

Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans
Andrei Arlovski vs. Rodrigo Nogueria
Karo Parisyan vs. "Mach" Sakurai
Spencer Fisher vs. Frankie Edgar
Dave Terrel vs. Ed Herman

Oh, and Damone, I see Nog losing to Arlovski. I am in no way taking anything away from Nog, but I feel that he is in for a stylistic nightmare with Andrei. This is of course if good Andrei shows up, but I like Andrei against grapplers. And we all know that Nog wrestling skills and nowhere near as good as the rest of his ground arsenal, so getting someone with a sprawl like Arlovski's to the ground will be a hard task. I see this turning into a glorified war on the feet, with Nog getting stuffed a couple of times in the first, and then maybe getting Andrei on his back for a brief second. Then the next two rounds of Andrei winning on the feet, maybe dropping him once, en route to a UD win.

I agree. You could pay some bum on the street $50 and have him step in the cage with Karo and it would still be an entertaining fight. On top of that you get The King Fisher? Looks pretty promising so far.

If this is true that it looks like a good card. I couldnt care less about Tito/Rashad because I dont like either. But Nog is awesome, Arlovski will hopefully come back strong and agressive, Karo is always a blast, I have been waiting on Mach to make his debut as he is one of my favorite Welterweights, and the King vs. Edgar will be a blast. Its just too bad that the rumored Terrell vs. Tanner isnt true. But still looks good.

This card is looking very good now.

I hope Joe Lauzon is on the undercard. I want to see him go tp punch someone on the deck so hard that when the guy rolls out of the way he smacks in to the mat and nearly breaks his hand, and then slam someone so hard he nearly knocks himself out. I love his style.

i dont know where you guys are getting that rumored card from but mmaweekly shows me nothing more than UFN. i know karo has entertaining fights but still, along with the other fights its basically the karo fight and the fisher fight being co main events at a UFN

The only fight I don't care to watch is Evans vs Ortiz 2. It definitely looks like a solid rumored card.

I don't know, brownpimp, AA had a hard time with Cruz, and had to cheat like mad to win. Nogueira is a much better fighter than Marcio. Arlovski could show up motivated, and he would, no doubt, do a good job, but I still see Nogueira using all of his might to get Arlovski down. The bad thing about that fight is the time. 15 minutes might not be enough for Nogueira to work his magic. Arlovski definitely doesn't suck and you make some really good points, but man, BP, I gotta stick with Minotauro here.
