Glad to see Amir hasn't been thrown to the wolves. I assume his fight will be the first televised fight; just like Mac's first fight was.

Wow I didn't even notice that. I think he's ranked too low by many sites, but at #4 and ahead of Thiago? Not until he beats Thiago.

Thiago shouldn't be ranked as a Welterweight at all considering he can't make weight. If he misses weight again against Sanchez he should be heavily fined and sent off to MW.

Wow, both of these cards are going to be amazing. The Diego Alves and Sherk Griffin fights are all I'm going to need to be happy for UFC 90.

Then 91 is just like an explosion of goodness.

Both look great but 90 looks better. Standout fights in 91 are Florian/Stevenson and Maia/Quarry.
