Eddie Sanchez (7-1) and Soa Palalei (8-1) will meet in a heavyweight bout at UFC 79: “Nemesis” on December 29, rounding out the blockbuster nine-fight New Year’s Eve weekend pay-per-view (PPV) event.

Wow.. I was just watching Soa's fight with Mu Bae Choi on Pride last week, and wondered what Soa was up too...
He didnt fight for a while after Choi so I assumed he was done fighting.. glad he gets a chance in UFC.
Hmmmmmm this means the whole main card wont be as spectacular as we thought it would be, they are obviously just happy enough with the 2 super main events to see it - which they will!
I was just hoping for another solid main card fight TBA, was thinking it would be Gouveia VS Lambert but guess we will have to wait for that LHW sleeper fight
