a pretty solid event with something that looks to be a pretty entertaining undercard.

i'm starting to get excited about this.

still bothers me a bit that after taking tito to a draw and a split decion over bisping that rashad is headling this card. i know the thinking is a tailer made fight for chuck so he can win but as a fan i am disappointed in this fight, when machida was avail instead

learned long ago MMA may be a sport but the UFC is a business.

I want to see all of the pre-lim fights. This card is a whole lot of solid.

It's all about Palhares, Karo, Tavares and Stun Gun.

I'm most excited for Palhares/Hendo, I think Palhares can get the win.

No he won't. Hendo lost to 2 champions it's not like he lost to nobodies.

For this card I wish they would do like Affliction did and show all prelims- I'd love to Kim and Tavares.

I'm pumped to see all 5 main card fights- I don't think I've ever seen 5 fights like this that I cannot wait to see. Palhares/Hendo, then Marquardt/Kampmann and then Ace and Hamill in the battle of two of the nicer guys in the sport.

Franklin-Hamill is the fight I'm looking forward to the most. I hope Ace shows himself to be a top 205er. Any Chuck fight is great.

and I'm kind annoyed with the r'shad sugar bashing. He's been in the octagon with, Tito Ortiz, Bisping, Kieth Jardine, James Irvin, Bonnar, and never lost. This is the perfect fight for him, a chance to take him to the elite top 5 level, a chance he deserves.
