Dont know anything about Te Huna except he was on the card for Soa Palelei's comeback fight in Australia. Even though Soa didnt look good against Sanchez I think they'll give him another chance on the undercard at least.

I expect to see Palelei on the card as well.

I hope they do, sure he is 8-11, but hes had one of toughest runs in UFC history.

Horn (which he won via triangle armbar, which is impressive against Horn) Ortiz, Tanner, Babalu, Griffin, Sakara, Bisping.

Plus hes a really nice guy and always puts on a decent fight.

Also he is rumored to be fighting Rampage.

I am hoping to see Elvis, He has bad head movement which hurts him, BUT he is a great fighter and also nearly submitted bisping after a thrashing! I am looking forward to this show real bad!!!

elvis is the godfather of aussie mma and i think it would be nice if he were on this card, but they would have to find the right matchup, i mean its not like they can hand him a contender and feel good about that, maybe a TUF guy from this season that drops to 205.
