Yeah I was looking forward to seeing Elvis, he has been training in Thailand I was hoping for some improved stand up.

Sucks that Sinosic can't fight at 110, he has done a helluva lot for the sport in Australia and it is seriously bad luck.
I train at their gym, and this is so sad/unfortunate ... Elvis had a pretty demanding camp for this starting in the beginning of January, going to Thailand to refine his striking then to the Machados and Xtreme Couture. It's dissappointing because I know all of us students and Aussies wanted to see him fight, can't imagine how he feels.

Also unfortunate that Big Ben is injured, was really looking forward to seeing him v CC, however it's a big opportunity for Anthony Perosh, he'll turn up in shape and that should be a good fight.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

A UFC in Australia without Elvis won't feel the same.

I know some are blowing up about Perosh replacing Rothwell and Haseman not fighting but it's not like theres no one else they can get to fight Haseman, im sure amny Aussie's would love that chance.

Im glad Perosh stepped up, I expected him to be on the card months ago anyway.

Nice, I thought there must be someone here who trains with them!

Do you have any idea on how Elvis was injured? Must have been a late training session mishap?

Cro Cop has 2 fights left in the UFC, and this is one of them now? Even if he wins, it won't really prove much. Crap. Oh well, maybe a signifigant ko win in the cage could give him some confidence.

Also, I feel bad for Rothwell's luck so far. He's having a rough start in the UFC.

...Very true. Like the O2 Arena without Hardy, Daley or Bisping wouldn't be as crazy. Having your countrymen in the cage gets the crowd pumped. Best example of that-- 18k up in Canada got to see GSP crush Serra and win back his belt. That place was insane!! Elvis not fighting will take some gas out of the crowd. UFC 110 is still gonna be awesome...

We still got George and Perosh. But it will suck if the first even in Australia has none of the Aussie's winning.

Hopefully they find Haseman a replacement.
