BigE has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I'm curious to see who Swick throws down with. It looks like a somewhat interesting card, although I'm disappointed that Gonzaga didn't get one more fight before Sylvia.

So far it looks like a great card, lol even though the first 3 matchups are extremely one sided and it is clear who the victor will be.

Matt Hughes vs. Chris Lytle

Why Chris Lytle? Can somebody tell me why? I know the UFC wants to give Matt Hughes a title shot but do they have to make it look so obvious! Yeah, thier is a slim chance that Lytle could win but is thier really any doubt how it will end! It will be Matt Hughes by Ground in pound! I really wanted the Karo Parysian rumor to be true!

Tim Sylvia vs. Gabriel Gonzaga

I've been down on Sylvia lately and my additude has not changed! He said it is more important to keep the title then put on an exciting fight! He's not hungry anymore! He used to be a warrior and now he's afraid to take a risk! Unless Gonzaga can knock him out or Tim decides to take some risks, this will be a snoozefest!

Rich Franklin vs. Jason MacDonald

Like the Hughes fight, this is pretty one-sided!

This is not that great of a card!

HAHA that poster is hilarious. As if they would put that big goof in the front especially with the tile over his shoulders. Hopefully he loses.

Hughes vs Lytle sounds pretty crappy to me. Hughes is gonna kill him and I wanna see Hughes get KOd again so I dont like this fight

Franklin Macdonald might be the best fight out of the 3. I think Macdonald might be able to make it close, I think that Rich will be too much for him and finish him.

Too bad there's not much of a possibility of it becoming special.

Karo...Since Hughes is fighting Lytle, and Fitch is fighting Luigi (which one of these guys switched weight classes???), who the hell is there left that is decent for Karo to fight? It won't be Alves thanks to his banned substance suspension. I guess Joslin or Koscheck would be decent.

Swick...Who the hell is he gonna fight that is a step up from the Crow? Since Franklin is fighting McDonald....well Franklin is about the only step up other than a title shot so WTF how did McDonald bypass Swick on the rank ladder????

Assuerio...well the HW division is so stacked I guess this one will be killer

This card pisses me off....just cuz it is taking place in Ohio doesn't mean they have to have hicks and country boys for all of the main events. It's kind of insulting really cuz Ohio isn't even close to being as rednecky as Iowa or Maine. Ohio actually has a lot of crime (not that it's something to brag about) and has a lot of huge cities. We don't have any more white trash/hicks than New York or Florida or Texas. But that's ok I guess. Support the false stereotype about the state with the most famous people and presidents coming from....and the crappiest most unpredictable weather.

That was the first thing I thought when I saw the card? Who can it be? It will be too soon for the winner of Mardequat v. Lister- suerly the won't want to throw one of the other middleweight TUFers at him- either it's not fair or they all had their asses beaten recently and would be too much of a step down.
