This is a stacked card, top to bottom.

Randy v Brock will probably be the biggest fight in MMA history in terms of money.

Florian v Stevenson probably the best LW match up since Penn/Sherk.

Maia v Quarry will just be an awesome fight and is a great match-up.

Plus we get to see Gonzaga and Amir back in action.

I'll admit the fights are a bit lackluster, but they have potential to be good, espceially Quarry/Maia

You're just a cook...

Still can't argue with all the points raised.

I believe they where thinking the same thing you are. There will be a lot of people that will watch this PPV that may not have ever seen UFC before. If you look at the card, every fight seems like an exciting match. I don't see a boring fight listed.

Randy Couture vs. Brock Lesnar (Both fighters will make it exciting of course)
Joe Stevenson vs. Kenny Florian (Same. should be a crazy match)
Demian Maia vs. Nate Quarry (Quarry is always exciting)
Amir Sadollah vs. Nick Catone (So far Amir has shown he can deliver, lets hope he will keep it up)
Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Josh Hendricks (Gonzaga!)

Don't really know why people are bitching about this card.

All the fights are interesting. Lesnar vs Couture because Couture's coming back against a monster, Florian vs Stevenson because it could determine the number 1 LW contender, A MW will move up the ladder, and if it's Maia, he'd be a near contender. Amir will get to show us the goods and freakin' Gonzaga will destroy someone.

That's a great card. Randy vs. Brock is awesome. Anything else is icing on the cake for me.

I actually agree with you Liddell67. There is potential to have great matches but I am just not excited about this card at all. I had actually posted something along the same lines as your post and got the same feedback although that was prior to Quarry/Maia being announced which helps.

Randy vs Brock - Good to see Couture back in action and should be exciting but I am just a little down on this b/c I really think it should've been Nogueira/Couture regardless of TUF.

Stevenson vs Florian and Maia vs Quarry - Have title shot implications but I am just not a big fan of any of these fighters

Amir vs Catone - Seems like UFN or TUF Finale material to me.

Gonzaga vs Hendricks - I love Gonzaga but he is fighting a UFC newcomer so not really a huge fight to me.

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
