The rematch should do better, it was an exciting fight that got people talking, plus the undercard is stacked with Rampage/Silva, Mir/Nelson, and Alves/Story. Hardcores will be buying and the casuals will be interested in Rampage.

Always rooting for: Bisping, Shogun, Jon Jones, Daley, Hardy, Sonnen, Fedor, Couture, Jacare.

The rematch will do better because they can hype up the first fight being so good. And of course, like has been said, Rampage/Mir, both draw a ton of bar goers.

Everybody said this would be a boring main event leading up to it, so there should be no surprise about the low buyrate. In hindsight, yes it was a fantastic card but thats after the fact.

I dont get it, ok the first round was good and frankie was almost koed and it was good to see him come back. However all he did was bounce around and punch maryard for 4 rounds after just as people thought the fight would go! So it went pretty much as the hardcores thought over then the first round?

No it didn't. it was a close and very intense fight and most people thought maynard would lay and pray him.


But anyway, i think that number is actually good for an event that was hated on severely and headlined by edgar and maynard on New Years Day.

not everyone, for one I was saying to people that was saying that before the fight that the first fight was a great fight and expect the second one to be also.

In fact ever since Edgar vs Penn 2 I was saying out of all the up coming main events and title fights in the works this was the one I was looking most forward to watching.

I thought the card was great all round good fights , however the rematch will not be as good as the 1st , Gray wont punch himself out in the 1st and Frankie wont get blasted next fight.

In fact i think Randy will slap Gray and tell him to wrestle and not be a mediocre boxer Gray will try to take him down in every round and Frankie will try to do the same and i have more respect now than before of Edgar's Takedowns i see Frankie winning a comfy decision.

Bisping Fan extraordinaire

Velasquez will be back

Bullshit Every man and his Dog was looking forward to Lesnar Vs Cain the most.

some because they swing from Brocks sack and others because they wanted Cain to shut up his homo following on forums.
