Meh main event, overall decent/good card.

Too bad Kos had to pull out. I was amped up for his rematch with Paulo.

How on earth is it a terrible card? UFC 108 looked like crap compared to this card and it ended up being great. 109 has several good match ups especially Marquardt fighting and Maia. Cant wait to see Tim Hauge and Mike Swick is fun to watch.

Couture Coleman is more of a spectacle than anything else but still a fight worth seeing imo.

Top 7 Favorite Fighters at the moment

1. Forrest Griffin
2. Clay Guida
3. Shane Carwin
4. Jon Fitch
5. Chuck Liddell
6. Wanderlei Silva
7. Chris Leben

Looking forward to seeing Maia again. If he can get even half decent stand up, then he can become a threat at Middleweight.

2 hall of famers going at it, should be interesting, this fight to me tells me that Randy won't get any kind of title shot in a long long time.

Before UFC 108 everyone thought it would be fireworks. We all know how it turned out.
Now everyone thinks UFC 109 ME sucks, so... could it really be?

Agreed with the mainevent, pretty suck, but we know them folk will go all out and give it all....I hope they stand strade, hate the stalemate that comes with two wrestlers.

As for the main card, can't want to see Maia submit Miller and Marquardt TKO Shonnen.

Also hate both Trigg and Serra, so as long asit's brutal, I'm good.

I have a show this night, and in normal circumstances I would buy and DVR the pay per view. Couldn't care less about this one though. The only fight I'm real interested in is just to see Marquardt, and I really don't think Sonnen is going to give him any trouble at all. And with all do respect to Coleman and Couture, this fight should at best be a co main event before a GSP, Penn, or Silva title defense.
UFC 110 cannot get here fast enough.

Looks like a decent card to me. Doubt I will spend 45 dollars on it though.
