PPV
Maurício Rua vs. Dan Henderson
Wanderlei Silva vs. Cung Le
Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles
Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story
Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury

TV Prelim

Ryan Bader vs. Jason Brilz
Tom Lawlor vs. Chris Weidman

I like the Rua/Hendo main event but to be honest I'm looking forward to Kampmann/Story most. Well, aside from seeing what Lawlor does at the weigh-ins.

PPV
Maurício Rua vs. Dan Henderson (cant pick this one, i have a feeling hendo wins but is shogun is motivated like he was with forest, he is deadly)
Wanderlei Silva vs. Cung Le (time for wand to retire)
Urijah Faber vs. Brian Bowles (having 2 chins side by side cant be good but he is still a tough dude)
Martin Kampmann vs. Rick Story (i think its the story ends here, ok sorry)
Stephan Bonnar vs. Kyle Kingsbury (because every time i pick against him he wins)

TV Prelim
Ryan Bader vs. Jason Brilz (would rather see brilz win but i think bader pulls a takedown derby on him)
Tom Lawlor vs. Chris Weidman (just bleed man)

The Miguel Torres fight isn't going to be televised? My how he has fallen... he used to seem unbeatable.

It is weird how fast people fall into lower tiered view slots.

Earlier in our current same calendar year Ryan Bader was fighting Jones as the two unbeaten light heavyweight rising stars, now Bader is on free prelims watching Stephan Bonnar in a PPV slot.

Agree 100%, he's one of the handful that never has a dull fight.

I'm actually excited about this card. Plan to go up to the UFC bar to watch it tomorrow night.

Hendo v Shogun is a hard fight to call. Hendo can wrestle and he still has pop in that overhand right. But he's fighting at Shogun's ideal weight, and when Shogun's not injured, he's usually pretty tough to defeat. He lost to Bones Jones, but he lost to a superior athlete. In this fight, I think Shogun's the superior athlete. I find it hard to believe that he beats Hendo by KO, but if he can be more aggressive than Hendo, he can win a decision. And that's how I see this, a unanimous or split decision for Rua.

Cung Le vs. Wanderlei. Well, gotta go with Le. Mainly because of the vicious beatings that the Axe Murderer has sustained in his last few years of fighting. Le's getting older himself and I think he has handpicked his opponents, but I think he's got enough weapons to bang with Wandy.

I like the other fights on this card too. It'll be a good card.

Re: Torres? Is he on Facebook fights now? Man, I remember watching that dude on Versus. I remember back in winter of 2008/2009, I must have done nothing but sit around, drink beer, and watch night after night of UFC unleashed and WEC on Versus. That's when I got to see Miguel Torres and how dominant he was.

Who the hell is Cung Le? I never heard of this guy only until a few months ago when I saw posts of people saying he is a great fighter in the same level as Anderson Silva. LOL. This guy is overrated. He is nothing. He won't make it in the UFC. He should stick to the movies like Bruce Lee.

To be fair Bader did beat Little Nog to earn the Jones fight, it isn't like he won that show then thrown right into a contender shot.

How about Kampman? Love watching that guy fight.

I liked the main event but don't understand the "greatest fight ever" thing that gets thrown about when two fighters are gassed but keep fighting, just like the original Griffin/Bonnar. What was so great about Hendo barely able to lift his arms?

Also = Shogun needs some new trunks man, the way those things cinched it looked like he had on tighty whities like I wore in 4th grade.
