We're underway!
Tonight's card:
Prelim matches (may not air on PPV):
Eliot Marshall beat Vinny Magalhaes by unanimous decision, 2 30-27s and 1 29-28.
TJ Grant beat Ryo Chonan by split decision, 30-27 Grant, 29-28 Chonan, 29-28 Grant.
Mark Bocek beat David Bielkheden by submission (rear naked choke) at 4:57 of round 1.
Ed Herman beat David Loiseau by unanimous decision, 2 30-27s and 1 30-26.
Nathan Quarry beat Jason MacDonald by TKO (strikes) at 2:27 of round 1.
Denis "Liu" Kang vs. Xavier Foupa-Pokam
Matt Wiman vs. Sam Stout

Brian Stann vs. Krzysztof Soszynski
Cheick Kongo vs. Antoni Hardonk
Luiz Cane vs. Steve Cantwell
Chuck Liddell vs. Mauricio Rua
Main Event: UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva vs. Thales Leites for the title
*-Bielkheden missed weight yesterday, coming in at 157 (limit is 156). I haven't heard anything about subsequent attempts so I'm assuming either he made weight or Bocek took the fight anyway and will have an extra $1500 or so coming his way.
If Silva wins tonight he'll set a UFC record with his 5th straight successful UFC Middleweight Title defense.

Since a couple people have been asking me about it already, MMAturf.net should have live streaming of the PPV tonight as usual. They always have multiple streams.

I'm about to start slamming cans of Dr. Pepper, between this and a late-starting NASCAR race tonight (roughly 8:45 PM ET start) I need all the caffeine I can get.

DC, thanks bro for being so on top of these spoiler threads all the time!

Anybody know any more about Chuck possibly pulling out of tonight's fight due to a toe injury ?

People are talking about it on the UG and Bloody Elbow have it on their Twitter page

Which was quickly overshadowed by the news that whatever Nick Diaz did to beat the CSAC drug tests at Strikeforce worked. His tests came back clean.
