I fear for Thales Leites' safety.

Facing a BEAST in Goran Reljic, who was SHREDDED @ 205 against Wilson Gouveia. Now, Goran is cutting DOWN to 185 lbs.!?!? MAN, he's gonna be absolutely cut. The guy is a beast: stands 6'3", we all saw his POWERFUL striking, and the body of a LHW at a lower weight class. DAMN.

I fear for the entire Middleweight division.

Look the f*ck out.

i'm a monster
i'm a maven

never gave in
never gave up
i'm the only thing i'm afraid of

UFC 90...good fight card

...Just a short take on the Silva/Cote fight. Cote is tough, but like Fitch...wasn't tough enough to beat GSP. Anderson Silva has definitely peaked now that he's jumping divisions. Silva's striking is on such a high level, Cote will be overwhelmed quickly by Silva's devasting Muay Thai strikes that will result in a Silva TKO or KO. Even if Cote gets the takedown, Silva is a serious danger off his back. Anderson Silva has been walking through a who's who right now. A peaked MMA fighter is one of the most dangerous opponents to face. Get ready for another Spider highlight reel....lol

One of the best preliminary bouts i've seen on a card.

Fisher v guillard has the potential to be fight of the year, 2 more great lightweight fights in Franca v Tibau and Maynard v Clementi, Almeida whowould have been main eventing this even if he won his last fight against one of the IFLs biggest stars and Burkman is fighting also.

I cant wait, the undercard is almost as good as the main card.

No one mentioned that David Baron has been signed with the UFC. He's great.

Aside from his physique, I don't believe that Reljic looked very impressive in his last fight. He had mediocre punches and was just looking for one move -- the high roundhouse. He was basically pre-spirtless Cro Cop, minus the good angling and varied kicks (height wise). I don't see him being an enormous threat to MW, least of all its champion.

Highly opinionated but out of touch with the current MMA scene.

Main event is exciting like feeding a cow to a shark is exciting.
