I actually really like 109.... I don't care for the main event though, it's going to be boring whichever way it goes. This is just a desperate attempt by the UFC to have a big name headlining.

Solid card though, and a very solid undercard, I don't think anyone can complain about this one.

I'm actually looking forward to the Couture Coleman fight. I'm curious to see just how long Coleman can continue fighting before he just completely stops moving. Plus, when was the last time Couture fought someone who is going to try to take him down instead of knock him out. Its going to be interesting

Attero Dominatus.

I really do not like the main event at all.

Maia vs. Miller is the fight that stands out for me. I'm pumped for this fight for some reason.

Yeah I am looking forward to that fight. This may be an over-reaction but I feel like trying to sell us Couture vs Coleman is a slap in the face to all fans. Although come fight time the UFC will hype the hell out of it and everyone will forget just how irrelevant this match up is.

I feel as though the UFC is saying "we can hype anything we want to" It puts me off the UFC a little bit and makes me hope that Strikeforce can keep putting solid competition down to make the UFC raise the bar and stop throwing us these crap main events.

It's a good thing they have a solid card otherwise, because the main event really belongs as one of the first fights televised. If only the UFC retained Henderson then you actually have a name to put as the main event.

Pumped to see Nate fight also!

I really hope the undercard is aired on Spike, Im eager to see Tim Hague return to the cage, interested to see what the new generation of Gracie looks like, Melvin Guilliard and St. Leg Kicker, Sign me up.

I just don't like his tattoo's. I like people that are covered, I am just not a fan of his. I do find his fights interesting but JDS made short work of him for sure.

And I am definitely looking foward to Maia/Miller


-Always Supporting-
Urijah Faber - Dustin Poirier - Frankie Edgar - Demian Maia - Miesha Tate - Claudia Gadelha - Jessica Eye - Tecia Torres

Come watch me make a fool of myself on YouTube

-Randy Couture - Mark Coleman
More than likely a borefest with Randy winning a decision

-Nate Marquardt - Chael Sonnen
Exciting KO from Nate the Great incoming

-Mike Swick - Paulo Thiago
Swick is always exciting (except against Hardy) and Thiago usually finishes his fights.

-Demian Maia - Dan Miller
Everyone wants to see how Maia responds.

-Matt Serra - Frank Trigg
ZZzzzZZZzzzzZZzzz who cares?

-Melvin Guillard - Ronnys Torres
Guillard is exciting and will either KO Torres or be subbed

-Phillipe Nover - St. Leg Kicker
Need I say more?

-Tim Hague - Chris Tuchscherer
Should end in a big KO


Not a lot of big names or any fights that are really going to stir up the rankings but I expect it will be better than most think it will be.

Still, we always tend to knock these cards, and 9 times out of 10, they deliver.
Jones just had a baby and wanted to spend some time with her, so he asked that the fight be moved to March.
