this card is hot. I don't know what you're talking about.

Really?! What on the card excites you? Lesnar/Couture will be entertaining and Florian/Stevenson will be good. But Sadollah and Gonzaga are fighting newcomers and the UFC hasnt even made the 5th fight official.



Gonzaga vs dos Santos - UFC on VS
Vera vs Jones - UFC on VS
Bibs vs Hansen - Dream 13
GSP vs Hardy - UFC 112
Gomi vs Florian - UFN 21
Nelson vs Struve - UFN 21

It's not a bad card, it's just not quite as good as the two events it's in between.

Maybe this is a good time for the UFC to expand into other nations. Though I'm not saying that the UFC is in trouble, they'll be just fine.

lesnar/couture and KenFlo/Stevenson will be fantastic fights.

I've been waiting for Sadolla to have his first real fight in the UFC so that one excites me as well.

I don't know what you're talking about calling Gonzaga a newcomer is about. He's been in the UFC since 2005 and is ranked around #5 HW in the world.

Yea im not surprised. Huge economical crisis going on right now. However we're still a month out or so, there is still time to sell seats.

He said he is fighting a newcomer. And #5 HW in the world??? Really? He is top 10 material but there is nooooooo way he is in the top 5 right now. Off the top of my head I would say 8.

you might want to actually do that ranking. the lowest I could put him is 6.

If Couture was eligable to be ranked Gonzaga would be 7th.

and how is a guy who has been fighting Pro MMA since 03 and has been in the UFC since 05 a fighting newcomer?

He's been in the UFC longer than Anderson Silva.....
