Which Prelim are you most looking forward to?

Welterweight bout: Dustin Hazelett vs. Tamdan McCrory
Lightweight bout: Jorge Gurgel vs. Aaron Riley
Lightweight bout: Jeremy Stephens vs. Rafael dos Anjos
Lightweight bout: Mark Bocek vs. Alvin Robinson
Welterweight bout: Matt Brown vs. Ryan Thomas

I like Hazelett/McCrory the best, both are nice young fighters. I think Dustin will end up getting the submission like Gono did to Tamdan, but I think it will be a nice fight before that, Tamdan is no joke.

I also like Jeremy Stephens vs. Rafael dos Anjos... Dos Anjos was a nice prospect, he didn't do too good in his last performance against Takafumi Otsuka, it was very close. Think I might of even scored it for Otsuka, but nonetheless still looking forward to his debut in the UFC.

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..

I went for the Hazelett - McCrory fight, i'm a big fan of Hazelett, and McCrory looked great in his last fight too so should be good. Also think the Bocek - Robinson fight has potential to be FOTN, and i'm interested in Matt Brown too. The Gurgel - Riley and Stephens - Anjos fights don't really interest me.

Im looking forward to the Hazelett vs McCrory fight the most. Both guys are tall WW and have great ground games. I think Hazelett is more well rounded than McCrory aswell.

I'm looking forward to Aaron Riley's fight, I'm not a fan of Gurgel at all, but Riley is an exciting fighter with a ton of international experiance.

It's good to see him back in the UFC and I will be rooting for him.

I went with the Matt Brown fight, Brown impressed the hell out of me in his last fight and Im interested to see if it was a one off thing or if he has actually improved that drastically.

Easily Hazelett/McCrory I would rather see it then Sadollah/Catone but we have to see that fight since it involves the winner of TUF 7. I would also probably want to see it over Gonzaga/Hendricks but I don't mind it being under that fight since I like Gonzaga a lot.

Due to lack of a "None" option I went for Hazelett/McCrory.

How about "none of the above". This undercard is lacking, big time. I voted for Hazelet/McRory for lack of a better option.

That's an awful prelim card. Can't even make up for the lack of main card.

You're just a cook...
