I don't really care about the Smith/Cote. It'll be a good fight, but neither of the fighters are really that interesting for me.
I'd rather see the other three. I voted for Griffin/Edgar, because I think the matchup says alot about who is going to be #2 behind Melvin Guillard in a few years.
I love watching Melvin, but it will be the same old show if they put another nobody in front of him, and they wouldn't put a good fighter in front of him if they were going to make the fight an undercard. If they were going to give him a tough fight, they'd want people to see it.
Hoger/Machida would be fun to watch, but I really expect Machida to walk through Hoger. I have alot of respect for Hoger, but Lyoto has beaten some fighters who are better than Hoger, in my opinion.
Lyoto has decisively beaten Bonnar (who beat Hoger), he beat UFC veteran Vernon White pretty recently and he beat Rich Franklin. Granted, Franklin is a much smaller guy than Machida, but I still consider Franklin better than Hoger, but that's just my opinion.
I think that Griffin v Edgar is going to be the fight on this list that's going to be an exciting war.
For Guillard it's just another highlight reel KO.
For Lyoto it's just a big debut.
