I wish the UFC would debut a card like this on CBS or something instead of versus. It wont get a lot of attention on versus and people with Directv cant even watch it.

Ya Im worried this'll happen. I really wanna see JDS on his back against Gabe though, because that'll be the position he'll spend alot of time vs. Brock, Carwin, Mir and even Cain if he can't get back up.
Basically he isn't the biggest guy in the division, he has no wrestling background and "only" brown belt on jitsu. So Im really curious to see the weaker side of his game in action.

With that being said Im hoping Cain beats Nog so we'll see JDS in title fight sooner. I don't think that Nog has anything to offer vs. Brock or Mir while JDS atleast has a chance to drop them standing.

Agreed, I'd love to see Gonzaga take JDS down. Gonzaga's only take-downs are based entirely around intimidating with strikes though...

Cain and Gonzaga are really bad stylistic matches to take JDS down, because Velasquez eats too many shots before he can secure a double leg and Gonzaga needs to threaten with kicks/jabs to get a take down... stylistically speaking, Carwin is more likely to take JDS down. But here's to hoping we'll see some great ground fighting!

As for writing off Napao... I don't personally think Gonzaga would last two rounds against Yvel, let alone JDS.

I am expecting Gabe to lose the stand up and go for some takedowns. Thing is I don't think Gabe has the best takedowns out there so he may not get JDS to the ground.

It would be nice to see how JDS stands up against some grappling but I am not sure Gabe will be the one to test it.

I wouldn't count Gabe out of the fight but I think JDS is the favorite in my mind.

I don't see Cain beating Nog. It is a terrible match up for him I think. Cain has no punching power (my brother calls him "pillow hands" ) so he isn't going to finish this standing or on the ground. It will be lay and pray if he does win. But you know Nog wants to get to the ground and work JJ on him.

I am not really a Nog fan (don't dislike him either) so it would be nice for me if he was moved aside for Dos Santos to move forward but I can't see it happening.

Cain would be the test that you want Gabe to be I think. Not sure if the UFC would put that fight together if Cain loses and JDS wins though.

For the record I would bet on Gabe in a match against Yvel.

Another fight, another win for Dos Santos. Gabriel Gonzaga Nogueira (that's what wiki says) never been one of my favorites due to poor record: forget about Mirko for a second and Gonzaga hasn't beaten anyone legit, and in the meantime lost to Werdum twice, to Couture and to Carwin decisively. So I think Junior has a good chance to improve his highlight reel by delivering another knockout.

Favorite fighters:
1. Badr Hari
2. Remy Bonjasky
3. Mauricio Rua
4. Anderson Silva
5. Alistair Overeem

I agree, I mean spike even has a bigger audience than Versus...ridiculous card though.....I have been saying JDS is the best prospect out of that Cain, Carwin , JDS group....I mean if he beats gabe how can someone rate Carwin in front of him......thats Carwins only big win, JDS already has the most impressive resume out of all of them
