Matt Horwhich is more relevant than anybody on Jensen's resume.

I have it 5-4 for Canada... but like you said it's tight. Thats really cool that they did this, I didn't even notice I hope the US wins so I have something to rag on Intermission for.

I hadn't even noticed this unlike the 117 card. Pretty cool, I guess I have it 5-4 for Canada and I would like to say I'm as impartial as it comes (in this regard, as I'm Dutch). In a way I love these unofficial nation v nation cards (like 117 and even 127 to some extent) but it kind of undermines the message that UFC could come with any card and the fans would buy it (as DW often says) when they stack a card with this many "hometown" fighters.
I don't think him stacking it with hometown guys has anything to do with PPV numbers, it's more to do with gate sales. If you didn't know this already, UFC 129 sold out in minutes and it sold 50,000+ seats IIRC. I think part of it is also due to fighters WANTING to fight in their home town, too. Nothing like having a 50,000+ crowd chant your name when you walk into the cage. My God I couldn't imagine that feeling.

No real man "wins" on a drawn fight.

I'm not Royce Gracie.

The first USA vs Canada was actually pretty damn good, it was the UFC that made me get back into it again having not watched the previous two dozen UFCs.

GSP v Shields
Mark Bocek v Ben Henderson
Rory MacDonald v Nate Diaz
Sean Pierson v Brian Foster
Yves Jabouin v Pablo Garza
Claude Patrick v Daniel Roberts
Ivan Menjivar v Charlie Valencia
Jason MacDonald v Ryan Jensen
John Makdessi v Kyle Watson

I'm the only one taking Bocek? Wazzupwidat?

Yeah but don't underestimate the atmosphere that adds on television. Think about how Montreal erupted when GSP came out to fight Serra or Kos. It adds something and gives the feeling that the fight is more important even if it does it only subconsciously.
