Wow this is crazy! Has to be some sort of record for injuries on one card.
Ebersole is a good replacement but I wish he could fight guys that aren't mid-tier, seems like every fight is a step down in competition.

They aren't treating Ebersole too nicely,
He beats two great names..
Chris Lytle
Dennis Hallman

and they give him Patrick, Waldburger and now Head?
if he beats Head, he'll be 6-0 in the UFC

Ebersole aint no gatekeeper, he's going all the way to the top

(probably not, but I can dream, can't I?)

He's good. I think the UFC is actually waiting for him to lose. I can't explain why I think that.but seriously 5 wins should garner you something more then Head

He's stepping in to face Head, not like it had been a scheduled fight for some time now.

This. Ebersole is doing himself a favor by taking this fight. Dana loves these type of guys.

If I got head after 5 straight wins it better be from the ring girls

Pretty easy win for Ebersole imo.

This card has become a joke though. The injury count is just laughable at this point.

Good point, I hadn't thought of that.
But is it worth it to possibly get dropped right down the rankings to get in Dana's good books?

And Proph, why would they give him a Fitching if he puts more excitement in a cartwheel kick than Jon Fitch has had in his entire career?

Some people also thought Ebersole lost to Patrick in their fight. I think he did and I picked Ebersole.

Maybe he steps in b/c he wants to fight and either isn't worry about a title shot or thinking it will just work itself out.

Like with Rick Story, taking that late fight against Brenneman didn't work out, but I'm sure he wanted to fight.

Plus, Ebersole was thinking about moving down to 155, so idk if rankings would matter so much, I don't think they do to him at this point.
