Is this the first UFC card with 13 fights?



The last brazil card also had 13 fights until Godofredo Pepey vs Kyle Bochniak was cancelled.


Hard work is the only real PED.

The UFC sent out video of Diakiese's 'one punch knockout' from the prelims: (can you call it that when he kicked a few times first?) You can see the whole fight...

I wonder if the UFC has found itself a MVP in Diakese.

Vicious KO.

Bangbose vs Breese and Entwhistle vs Johns did get dropped from this card so it only has 11 now. Breese and Entwhistle were the ones medically unfit or whatever to fight. Ian Entwhistle wasn't happy and said he's done no more weight cutting for him.

Entwhistle was 178 6-weeks out, to get to 135 is too much. The Breese issue is still unclear, he moved up in weight class so it would seem odd if it was due to cutting.

Looked fine at the weigh-ins.

Unless he's come down with a bug or something I can't think what the issue is.

Manuwa is a killer... finally showing what i thought he had coming from the british scene, it didn't even look like a huge shot either. Manuwa only loses to the best, i don't think that changes as he looks for his next big fight, although i give him a ittle more chance at beating Jones than either DC or Johnson, just based on how they match up stylistically.





Look at my belt ^^
