The BEST pound-for-pound fighter in the world, Anderson "The Spider" Silva returns to 185 lbs. to defend his Middleweight title, against number one contender, Patrick "The Predator" Cote...who is on a five-fight win streak.

In the co-main event, mainstays in the loaded UFC welterweight division: Thiago "Pitbull" Alves takes on Diego "Nightmare" Sanchez in a fight that could determine the next person in line for a championship opportunity.

I love Anderson Silva but that is the 3rd best fight for me on this card, I am looking forward to Alves/Sanchez and Griffin/Sherk more.

Alves/Sanchez is the best matchup on the card IMO.

I sure hope Cote can make it a battle with silva but I doubt it.

U F C 9 0 : S I L V A v C O T E

I Honestly Could Not Agree With The Last 2 Poster's More , IMO Silva Fighting Cote Is Just A Small Part Of This Truely Unreal & Amazing Card Which I Think Will See Thiago Alves Destroying One Of My Personal Favourite's Diiego " The Nightmare " Sanchez & Shaun Sherk Powering Himself To A Decision Victory Over Top 155 lbs Top Contender Tyson Griffin , All In All A Very Solid Card With Some Great Undercard Fights I Can't Wait To See & Intrested To See Whooo Make's The Leap From Contender To Serious Threat To There Respective Title's

My Favourite Fighters
1 . Michael " The Count " Bisping
2 . Lyoto " The Dragon " Machida
3 . Gabriel " Napao " Gonzaga
4 . Fabricio " Vai Cavalo " Werdum
5 . Jon " War Machine " Koppenhaver

My first live show-suggestions on tickets?

I think I'm going to have to get tickets to this one...this is propably as close as the UFC will come to St. Louis.

So I was looking at prices for the Atlanta show and they break down like this:
$604/$404/$254/$154/$79

Assuming similar prices in Chicago: I don't think I can justify $600, and propably not $400 (trying to save money for my wedding)...is it worth the extra hundred between the $150 and the $250. I'm assuming the $80 tickets you just watch on the big screen and can't really see anything in the ring (maybe the same for the $150? 250?). Just wanting some opinions from people who have been to a few shows. Thanks in advance.

Favorite Fighters by Weight Class:
MW Rich Franklin
HW Still supporting "The Crocop"
LW Frankie Edgar
WW GSP (I'm a closet Hughes fan)
LHW Whoever's fighting Tito Ortiz
All-time Genki Sudo

I agree with you, these two fights are going to be close and either are most likely to be FOTN.
