Leben has a granite chin and lots of heart. Bisping is very talented. They are both contenders. Maybe Miller and Baron will be one day. But right now. Leben and Bisping will be a more exciting fight that will actually mean something other than a spot filler....
Miller's career hasn't taken off yet but he is an amazing talent. And Baron has been fighting overseas which is the main reason why he isn't as well known as Leben and Bisping.

They also fight in a divison that has a ton more talent then MW.

Damn, I think Liaudin vs Bielkheden is going to be fireworks. David Bielkheden's mad underrated, and the guy can bring the fun when need be. Liaudin does some wonky kicks. This should be badass.

Someone is going to die in the Sokky vs Cane fight.

Ahhh, such a fun card, I'll go with Gono vs Hardy.

I think it's more unknown than underrated.

People who know who he is realise that he's a decent talent.

I also am looking forward to this match-up.

Not too happy with the match making on this card.

Welterweight fights are...

Akihiro Gono vs. Dan Hardy
Marcus Davies vs. Paul Kelly
Chris Lytle vs. Paul Taylor

Gono vs. Hardy is ridiculous. Hardy is a very fun fighter and they should of put him in there with Paul Taylor. They would of had a great fight, but with this, Gono will just sub him quickly when it hits the ground.

Akihiro Gono vs. Marcus Davies
Chris Lytle vs. Paul Kelly
Dan Hardy vs. Paul Taylor

Jeez, these match-ups are so so so so so so much better.

The 3 best guys there, Gono, Lytle and Davies, and none of them are fighting each other. WTF is up with that?

Hardy vs. Taylor would just be class.

Fedor fights I want to see..

Fedor vs. Josh Barnett
Fedor vs. Randy Couture
Fedor vs. Tim Sylvia - DEMOLISHED
Fedor vs. Andrei Arlovski - DEMOLISHED

hmmmmm, i wonder how many become reality..

Gono's a good kickboxer, so Hardy vs Gono could be a fun stand-up fight until Gono decides to take things to the ground.

Just a note Baron beat Hardy twice.

And that's a real good point Shamrock-Ortiz He is more unknown then underrated. I mean even big time international MMA fans have no clue who Baron is.

I think Baron can beat Miller. I was very surprised when he beat Sakurai. I'd say I'm looking forward to the Sokoudjou/Cane fight the most. If Machida was still on the card it would have to be his fight by far.

This fight does look good, I agree. I think Vera vs Jardine is the best match up at 89 though

What a stud

I'm looking forward to Sokoudjou vs. Cane the most. I'm rooting for Soko to kick this guy's ass.
