What a crap card. I might, I stress might enjoy the Couture fight...but not likely since he's just an old geezer of a wrestler.

But yeah, whatever happened to the explosive co-main event cards from not so long ago. The past few have been kinda terrible...

I think it's a decent card but I'm not looking forward to the main event what so ever.

Doesn't help when all of your Champions (sans Penn) and 1/2 of your roster go down with injuries. Still looks like a decent card, yet I'm not quite certain why they didn't just host Vera vs. Jones on 109, as well. I think that fight in particular would have been a clincher. Still, we always tend to knock these cards, and 9 times out of 10, they deliver.

I think I'm done reading threads about people bitching about upcoming cards. They are usually good, and everyone wonders why they were bitching in the first place. Lather, rinse, repeat. I'm over it.

People seem to have forgotten Couture vs Nogueira instantly. That was an epic fight, and one of the best fights of the year. But because Randy wanted to pick up a victory in his return to 205, fight a sensible fight and avoid the top class Muay Thai of Brandon Vera he's instantly dubbed boring. I'm personally looking forward to the card, and the main event. Sure they're both past their best, but I don't see it being a dull 15 minute wrestling match. I see Couture being far more willing to stand and trade with Coleman in this fight, and think it'll be very similar to Couture-Nog.

It's not the best card on paper, but the last 2 that have looked pretty average on paper, 105 and 108 have been really good, entertaining events. Some good fights that I'm looking forward to seeing. I'm actually interested in every fight on the main card. Koscheck vs Thiago II would have been more interesting than Swick-Thiago, but it should still be a good fight, Swick's pretty entertaining.
