this should be a decent night. I see Hermes winning this though, even though i dont want him too. And if Danzig stays sharp and stray from the game plan i think he's got Neer's number in a UD.

I see Joe winning if he can get it to the ground early and keep it there. He's never looked confident at all on his feet, but he can usually hold his own on the mat.

Lauzon/Franca should be great, but Hermes looks like the photographer caught him by surprise.

-1 for the poster.

I'm really excited to see Franca back in action... I hope he can build on the Aurelio win and start using his top notch jits to finish fights again... This one's got FoTN written all over it...

Danzig / Neer seems like a decent bout as well, although it seems that Neer is just there for "record-padding" nowadays, but his fights are entertaining more often than not...

This is the card that Amir and Valazquez are coming back for as well, right?

hope that Hermes gets the win, never been much of a fan of Lauzons.

and Mac will probably get the UD, but Neer always seems to play spoiler...haha..so I am definately not counting him out.

Man, the Lauzon/Franca fight should be great. It's good to see Franca back in action. My heart is with Joe but my money is on Franca.

Hermes is over-rated. Frankie Edgar just picked him apart and dominated him on the ground. Joe will do the same thing.

Joe's is NOT the wrestler Edgar is at all and Joe's also small for a LW I don't see Joe dominating him

I completely disagree Joe Looks extremely confident on his feet like against Reinhart who totally charged Joe and had nothing but bad intention and joe kept his cool and stood and calmly took his head off before he subed him, and did you forget what he did to Pulver one of the premeir strikers in the LW at the time. any way I think if Joe keeps some distance for a while on the feet and feels Franca and if that doesn't work do the ground and pound you do Joe
