130, easily.

129 has two pretty intriguing match-ups and a lopsided main event. If you're a really big GSP fan, I could see why 129 is more appealing. However, 130 is clearly a more versitile and entertaining card.

Both pretty equal, I want a Story (upset win) and Mir KO-ing Nelson at 130. I think Frankie takes Maynard emphatically this time around. Jorge Santiago I predict get's KOed. Hamill for the upset.


If I had to pick, it'd be 129 because of Aldo

In rank of fight interest
1. Aldo wrecks/finishes Hominick

2. Machida/Couture(curious to see if Machida unloads some flurries) (KOTN for Machida?)

3. Mcdonald/Diaz - that screams stand-up war (FOTN or KOTN for McDonald)

4. GSP V Shields - I forsee a stiff jab-a-thon with neither fighter being to mount on a takedown, maybe an attempt to finish (if we're lucky).

Beyond that:
GSP get barraged with questions about stepping up to the plate.

Very close but 129 edged it for me. Two title fights is just brilliant. The rest of the main card is solid. I'm not interested in Page vs Hamill at all so that kind of puts me off 130, even though the rest is spectacular. I mean, Alves and Torres on prelims?? Daaaaamn.

Went with the 130 card as I am not sure I want to see the exhibition fight with Machida VS Couture. Both cards offer some good fights though I like Hamil really do want to see him get smashed. Can not wait to see Mr Maynard finally shut up. What a relief that will be. Well that is to much rambling on...

Gsp Vs Shields
Aldo Vs Hominick

Thats a better main and co main event than 130.

And i believe that the spike TV is better for 129

and the remaining main event fights are just as intriguing.

Velasquez will be back

Why? How big of a chance do you give Shields and especially Hominick to win? And just because a card has two title fights doesn't really make it more exciting, especially two lopsided title fights.

I love watching Aldo fight, so even if he finishes in the first it will be worth it because it's always impressive. I think GSP Shields will be closer than people think unless GSP decides to just jab him into oblivion like he did Kos, like he probably will. And I see Machida Couture being a good fight.

I like it better when Aldo fights top competition. Hominick is merely a filler.

And I'm never excited for a GSP fight anymore so I guess that's just me. I also don't see the fight being close and, once again, going to a 5 round decision of GSP playing conservative.

I REALLY am looking forward to Machida/Couture though.

There is no more top competition at 145, sure Florian dropped down but I don't see Aldo facing anyone who can hang with him at 145, so I just look forward to being blown away by the things he does in the cage.

See I feel the same about 130, I see Maynard Frankie being what everyone expected it to be this time around and Frankie dancing on the outside and eating gray up but going 5 rounds, I don't see Frankie finishing anyone. I don't think Rampage Hamill will even be close, Rampage by a mile. Frank Mir, Roy Nelson not a fan of either guy, Frank is a good teacher but his fights either end in the first a win for him or he quits most of the time and Roy gets on my nerves, had since TUF. I love Brain Stann, repsect the guy alot and like him as a person but not enough for it to tip the card for 130.

And not to mention 129 has Lil Hendo. Guess it's just a matter of taste.....obviously haha.
