Lawler Smith was a great fight - no question. HOWEVER - if Lawler really used all of the weapons in his arsenal instead of just banging with Smith, he would have crushed him. Not saying Lawler/Smith 2 won't be exciting but if Lawler does anything but stand there and bang, part 2 won't be as exciting and Lawler wins easily.

bigfoot should face Brett Rogers

and Bazler should face either Sexton or Cyborg

not sure about Jake though, maybe someone from the IFL if they can get them..Delson Heleno or someone...maybe The Goat even...(he seems to bounce around between orgs a lot)

I'd like to see Thompson fight Jake for the title... I've also heard Heiron's name mentioned as well...

Do I remember hearing that Elite signed Cyborg or is that just an "i wish" type of thing? Cause that broad can bang

I know they signed that Rosi Sexton girl, not sure what her nickname is...when you said Cyborg I thought you were talking about (Evangelista) Santos.

They did mention Jay Hieron (IFL Welterweight Champion) as a possible opponent. As for Rogers, I'm guessing they'll probably hold him off to try and save him for the potential Kimbo fight in the fall.

UPDATE: According to F4WOnline, Jake Shields' opponent for the WW Title will be Nick Thompson.

Shaping up to be a great card with possibly 4 title matches, 2 as it is and likely 3 if the Diaz-Noons rumors hold. They'd better have that delay/mute/bleep button ready to work OT.

Also, Diaz will face Thomas Denny on the card.

Another rumor for the women's match: According ot the Brazilian website TATAME, Shayna Baszler will face Christiane Santos, who is the wife of Cyborg (Evangelista Santos). This might be her MMA debut, can't find a record on Sherdog.

Mania's got the betting odds up for the event for those that might be putting some real money bets down:
Robbie Lawler -210
Scott Smith +170

Jake Shields -340
Nick Thompson +260

Nick Diaz -600
Thomas Denny +400

Shayna Baszler -200
Christiane Santos +160

Antonio Silva -575
Justin Eilers +375

Rafael Feijao -500
Travis Galbraith +350

Wilson Reis -135

I personally like Thompson's odds so he might be a good bet.
