I am pretty sure JDS wont fight Nog as he is his teacher and friend.

He may not even want a title shot yet since Nog is still in the picture out of respect for his teacher and that is why he is taking the long way to the belt.

This card is freaking awesome!!!! I cant wait for the Jon Jones vs. Brandon Vera fight. If Jones beats Vera convincingly i say give him a title shot!!!!!

Also i hope no one on this card get injured because it sounds to good to be true.

If the rumoured bouts are true and do get added, then the card will look like this:

Brandon Vera vs Jon Jones
Junior Dos Santos vs Gabriel Gonzaga
Anthony Johnson vs John Howard
Clay Guida vs Sean Sherk
Spencer Fisher vs Duane Ludwig

Brendan Schaub vs Chase Gormley
Vladamir Matyushenko vs Eliot Marshall

That is a sick card for a FN event. Really can't wait for Vera vs Jones, that's going to be such a good fight. Potential Fight of the Year candidate I reckon.

That really does seem like a PPV card. But free works for me. I can't wait for all of these fights. All UFNs should look like this from now on!

I'll put up with the same commercials over, and over, and over and OVER because this is a super sweet card.

I might have to mute the Taco Bell ones though. Those are annoying as hell.

Maybe the UFC is actually being smart about this and gradually working Dos Santos towards a title shot, instead of feeding him to the wolves.
In JDS' first UFC fight, they gave him a top 10 HW one fight away from a title shot. Then they gave him someone on a 5 fight submission streak. Then they gave him a legend. Then they gave him someone with 30+ KOs who just knocked out Rizzo and had just taken the #2 HW to the 3rd round.

I dunno what they're doing with JDS but after he beats GG he'll have one of the most impressive 5 fight streak in the whole HW division.


That being said, JDS takes this fight easily. GG will try to stand for the first exchange then feel the dynamite power he has, try to take him down, get shucked off, retreat, and get crushed. GREAT looking fightnight!

As others have already stated, definitely a PPV worthy card. Nice to see UFC going all out in a potential move to compete with SF, which typically puts on a few fairly loaded and free cards each year in its own right. And they act like competition is a bad thing.
