Everyone was saying Jardine, but he's been pushed back to 97.

They must have something big up their sleeves, because I'm not seeing the excitement on this card. I'm going to be going, but I want to at least see some solid fights.

Yeah with no titles on the line, two big names in Liddell, and Jardine were set for the card(rumored). Jardine is now being said to be on the 97 card against Luis Cane, which is an awesome matchup. And Liddell doesn't/hasn't had an opponent, so yeah if he was taken off the card, wouldn't be a surprise.

With the Gonzaga/Carwin fight being the marquee matchup, so far, I really don't see why this wouldn't be free, anymore than the 95 card.

Gabriel Gonzaga vs Carwin should make for a great co-main event especially since a #1 contenders spot is on the line. The Brandon Vera fight as well as the Kendal Grove fight do seem like they would be more appropriate for a fight night. It seems like the UFC is really struggling to put this card together. There's no doubt that without a solid main event this card is going to fail almost as bad as UFC 93 which is estimated to pull in under 200K buys.

Chuck could save the card, but there really aren't many good opponents for him aside from Wanderlei, and it's just too soon for that rematch. I would like to see it end up being Forrest vs Lidell, which would really change the entire outlook of this card.

Heavyweight bout: Shane Carwin vs. Gabriel Gonzaga
Lightweight bout: Gray Maynard vs. Jim Miller
Light Heavyweight bout: Brandon Vera vs. Mike Patt
Middleweight bout: Kendall Grove vs. Jason Day

i am hearing cause the card is so poor that they might have 11 or 12 fights but man they should move some of the fight night fights to this card and push some lower ones like ryan jensen to fight night. it's a shame this card is so sad for a huge huge crowd in columbus

Least you guys have the chance to see a card live, living in Australia I am many, many years away from seeing the UFC expand into Australia!!! I guess Germany is more important!!!
