Fine card I thought .....fine card.
Sorry but first off they could of make it a free event, if not then they could of at least shown some token of effort over the last 2 weeks to pull something together to call a main event.

Hell I would of settled for any elite fighter, surly, Penn, Bisping (and there is shortage of fighters who want to fight him), Cruz, hell I would of settled for Melvin Guillard vs Jim Miller, Damian Maia vs Palhares some classic must see at some point war like that, something some token of effort, they had 2 weeks, they where in Las Vages fight home central, they could of fetched up something.

Easier said than done, who's to say they didn't offer other elite fighters fights?

The main eventers are already lined up for other PPV's in the coming months, the amount of decent leftovers would have been quite thin surely.

They seemed very quick to push all efforts into promoting Quinton vs Hamill as the main event, if they new before we did 2 weeks back then that only means they had longer to work up something, as for the amount of time between breaking the news and pushing to promote Quinton vs Hamill as the main event, well they hardly had time to blow there nose never mind try hard to pull in something new to replace.

Pulling someone off a upcoming card in the future would of been acceptable as well to deal with the immediate problem they had, effecting another card anything beyond UFC 131 would of gave them plenty of time to replace any effected future fights as needs be.

That is what I am saying, they had no time to replace it and they had to push what they had. I thought it was a great card. A good chance to showcase fighters we wouldn't have seen otherwise as it was quite an injury-plagued card.

Especially stoked to see Mir and Tibau pick up very decent wins.

Will be honest I fell asleep trying to say up to watch it and woke up just to see the last 2 round of Hamill vs Quinton so I can't judge the card, but from what I saw the Main Event Sucked, there was no Quality on display in that fight.

Maybe it did not Help that I watch UFC 92 earlier that day to pas the time before the Champions League, but the difference in quality and entertainment between the Rashard vs Forest fight and the Hamil vs Quinton fight, without judgement on the rest of the card which I have not yet watched, was huge.

In a division that I have felt has been dropping in quality for quite sometime, this is something I have been saying for a very long time as well, this really marked an all time low for the LHW division imo.

They have a great Champion in Jones and absolutely nobody who can even come close to him.

Well of course you're gonna be disappointed if you watched UFC92 earlier lol. The rest of the card was pretty solid when you think of all the drop-outs.

Not a bad card from I can hear, havn't had the chance to watch it yet which is a rarity. Been too busy. To chime in the last several cards have been wicked, so we can't always get the all star cards everytime.

Got every single pick right in the last card...the one fight I don't watch and I get every single pick wrong...hahah! Thiago...boo...Torres...Struve (damn!)...Roy...and even Hamill. At first I thought Rampage would murder Hamill, then I changed my decision since I thought Hamill could pull the upset being the major underdog. Oh wellz...now we get to see two of the TOP HW heavy hitters.

JDS vs CARWIN!!!

the bar I go to doesn't have a cover charge so the event cost me a few bucks for beer and food and a good time in an eventful atmosphere.

In no way should this card have been free or on television. every fight had a big name/popular fighter. it wasn't a great card but it had its moments. that tends to happen some times. it's called real life.
