In terms of big names, this is a pretty nice fight card. Watching Anderson Silva and BJ Penn fight is always a thing of beauty and Matt Hughes is a welterweight legend in the UFC.
In terms of competitiveness and relevance, however, this is an absolutely terrible card. BJ Penn is an 8:1 favorite and his fight will not even be close. Demian Maia wouldnt even be fighting if not for Vitor Belfort getting injured and that fight also will not be close at all. Matt Hughes is obviously over the hill and washed up and is completely irrelevant to the modern day welterweight picture right now.

Weird how Penn and Hughes first fought back in 2004. Now Penn is one of the best p4p in the world and in his prime, sky is the limit, who knows what he has yet to accomplish. While Hughes is gone in to obscurity making cameos in some high profile but largely irrelevant fights.

Yeah this card was good until Belfort dropped out I really will enjoy watching BJ Penn and Anderson Silva demolish Maia and Edgar.And I have never seen Renzo fight so that should be great but honestly this really doesnt have a great undercard tho I would really love to see Munoz ko Grove

Penn is 31 and just peaked. Hughes is 36 and more focused on his family now than fighting. Those 5 years at that age probably has a dramatic effect on your body.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

i agree watching anderson and BJ is always great. AS/BJ - generally always both provide entertaining fights with great standup and/or ground. Their fights are def more entertaining than GSP's style and better for the fans anyhow. It would be interesting to see BJ and Matt Hughes fight a rubber match at 170, although i dont like Matts chances these days.

Well who thinks Maia will just lay down and spread his legs and we will have another fight where Anderson Silva will be considered boring by all the people who know crap about MMA will say he is boring?
