Swick vs Okami should be interesting. Swick is from my hometown so i really hope he wins this and gets a title shot. imo everything else is meh. I wonder who Herrings opponent will be?

Damn, what's so weak about this card? Georges St. Pierre will be defending his title for the first time (in a postponed bout, which makes it even more anticipated, in my opinion), you've got a heavily anticipated rematch in Diego Sanchez vs. Josh Koshcheck, what looks to be an awesome stand-up war with Cummo and Haynes. You've also got Mike Swick, Joe Stevenson and the possibility of a returning Cao Uno. This card looks solid and I wouldn't be surprised if it matches UFC 67 in terms of fight quality.

i'm excited about this card. not really getting whats so weak about it. gsp in his first title event will be fun, albeit a short bout kos vs. diego is gonna be a pretty nice battle. we've got cummo and haynes beating the hell out of each other. should be a good fight.

assuerio silva was on the card earlier when it was tentative now he's gone...thats really my only disappointment. i like watchin his fights

It's an OK card, I don't understand Joe Silva's logic with all of the matches, but sometimes I'm right and sometimes he's right, so we'll see.

GSP v Serra is going to be short. Even shorter than Matt Serra.

wow, this card looks pretty boring. Not that I will skip it, but I may be drunker than usual and talking to my friends alot more during the fights. They haven't taken a risk with two top competitors fighting each other yet this year (well randy vs. sylvia but that will still be a one-sided fight), hopefully that will change soon.

I assume you mean it's going to be one sided in Couture's favor.

I think Tim is going to surprise a looot of people here.

I am actually pretty excited about this card. We get to see GSP finally defend his title. Also mike swick and joe stevenson will be fighting so this looks like a good card so far.

Nope he actually thinks Tim is gonna beat Randy's ass believe it or not.


The only thing I don't like about this card is that Diego should be fighting a contender, even though it will still be a good fight. And Josh Haynes needs to get the **** out of there. I'm sick of this guy he sucks ass they might as well bring Tank back and get Kimbo in there too. Haynes FTL and hopefully never see his ugly face ever again.

And TREY B. Who is "The Duke"???

Someone mentioned Assuerio was supposed to be on this card but I thought he was on the Ohio one. Maybe if he is on this card he will fight Heath? I dunno that would be alright but I also wanna see Heath fight someone with at least a LITTLE bit of standup skills (not saying Assuerio doesn't, just saying in general), but I also hope he comes in 100% and actually attempts a sprawl this time.

Im not saying that I wont enjoy this card, I just don't get as excited as I did for 67, however I think "the james" comments have opened my eyes to how big these fights are
