Ufc 95..........

Any idea what the main event is going to be. I dont want to buy a ticket again and have average fights on it like there was at the last one in London. Ufc seem to make the overseas cards alot weaker than the ones in the u.s. Im assuming this is due to the fact they don't sell them as ppv's in America so it doesnt make any sense for them to put on blockbuster fights but as a u.k fan its annoying.

With Diego vs Stevenson and Marquardt vs Gouveia on the card it should be a good one.



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

I've ordered basically every event since 60, but no way will they get any of my coin if they dont add a major fight other than diego vs stevenson and marquardt vs gouveia. That's just embarassing.

Well the last fight at the o2 was supposed to have Chuck vs Rashaad, but Chuck jacked up his leg. I have a feeling that Randy will be making his comeback to LHW at UFC 95, so don't give up hope yet!

Just a quick question for the yanks - I thought you guys got the oversees shows for free on Spike? Is that right?

If so, how come MMA Weekly have it down as a PPV for you boys in the states?

I hate the fact they get people like Grove in just for UK events, do they really think it helps promortion that much? I find it almost insulting that they think I need to see fat English fighters to be satisfied. I guess we're different to the average fan

I was gutted when Silva's camp backed away from this event. I'm not really interested in the Stevenson vs Sanchez fight... obvious outcome and Joe Daddy just doesn't get me excited. Obviouslt the Marquardt Gouveia fight is exciting but there's much else to get too worked up about.

I know I'll still enjoy it, I did last time when Alves KOd Hughes, but when there's more and more small scale line ups it leaves you wanting to see a top name.

I was considering trying to get tickets for this but looking at the line up,barring some miracle announcement,i.e. a major main event im glad i didn't.
I do think there will be a decent main event,cos if not,this card would appear quite weak i reckon.If not a title fight,which im 99% sure it won't be,as i would stand corrected,but i don't think a title fight has taken place in a UK event,normally sort of No.1 contender/eliminator match ups.They certainly need a box office name,a Chuck or Randy dropping down to LHW would add some much needed spark to the card.I will definately be watching,as always,just hope for a big announcement regarding the main event.
