Really good? Mark Hunt should not be in the UFC let alone fighting on a main card. Rothwell and Broughton aren't far behind him... Even Browne although half decent comes into fights with horrible conditioning and has sub par ability. I could live with one bad matchup like this on a card as some people for some reason like to watch two fatties pretend to fight each other but 2 on the main card is just too much. I would take any of the main event fights off the 2 cards surrounding 135(fight night and live on versus) over these two.

Diaz vs Gomi is ok but both are almost fighting to stay in the UFC...

Going from the bottom of the card up:

Mizugaki vs Escovedo - could be a decent fight. Nothing to get overly excited about but Mizugaki occasionally puts on a good show.

Te Huna vs Romero - doesn't really catch my interest. They are however underrated to a degree so it could be better than a lot would expect.

Boetsch vs Ring - Boetsch lately bores the **** out of me but Ring has looked very very solid from what I've seen from him thus far so if he gets by a strong 185 lb'er in Boetsch, it could set up a big fight for him. Not overly excited about this match up though.

Ferguson vs Riley - First fight for Ferguson outside the ultimate fighter cast and he's dropping to 155 so i'm definitely interested to see what he can do at LW. Definitely most exciting fight for me on the prelim card.


Rothwell vs Hunt - If Rothwell exchanges on the feet it could be a splendid KO for Hunt. Unfortunately if this fight gets past the first round and/or goes to the ground it'll be painfully boring.

Nate Diaz vs Gomi - YES. Finally a great fight. This will probably be FOTN. Both guys always come to fight and put on a good show.

Browne vs Broughton - So-so match up. Browne brings the striking and Broughton brings the wrestling. depending on Browne's TDD it could be a decent fight. Definitely far from main card material though.

Hughes vs Sanchez - Very interesting match up. I can't recall the last time I didn't enjoy a fight with Sanchez and the incredible power Hughes brings to the table could make a formula for a fantastic fight. Definitely eager to see how this plays out. More of a fight night co-main event but still interesting nonetheless.

Jones vs Rampage - Obviously the only reason why this card is ppv. No need to explain.

So overall, I give this card a C-

Way below the standard lately for cards but hey... sometimes you need some weak cards in order to get some epic card such as UFC 134 and UFC 136 (very excited)

Yes this card is weak but that's the result of having a bunch of sick cards surrounding it. Some card has to take the hit (they can't ALL be great), so it might as well be the one in colorado.
Having said that the only fight I'll probably be watching is Bones, other than that the other fights aren't good.

...Well, anything can happen. The fights might turn out to be killer. Amazing how one fight can make you ponder the decision to get it or not. I can't miss Rampage & Jones either. Too much anticipation to see if Rampage gets inside and catches the young buck on the button and ends it stunningly, or Bones just unleashes a striking fury that puts QJ in survival mode the whole fight. Page should dirty box in the clinch with his nasty uppercuts. Rampage must close the distance without question. Shogun stayed at the end of Jon's kicks & punches- thus the results. Page slips & ducks punches well. He has to slip by a 10.5 inch reach advantage and get off first with some big hooks...

This card is WEAK. 136 is STACKED though so it makes up for it I suppose!
