Put the Cane / Lambert fight on the main card, sure there less known but its a guarenteed KO which i see going to Cane.

And take out the Marquardt / Leites fight, there will only be 5 fights on the main card and 1-2 more if the main card fights are short.

The Rashad / Irvin fight... nah, probably going to be a snoozefest....Make the shortest fight(s) of the night on the replays after the main event.

EDIT: Or if they dont put in the Cane / Lambert fight in, Chonan / Carnairo will be very good and another guarenteed KO fight is the Taylor / Liaudon fight along with Hardonk's next victim Neil Wain

Im excited for Martin Hitman vs. Jorge Rivera but it probably won't make the main card. Martin is coming back after about a year and Jorge is coming off a big win should be a slugfest.

i just don't understand why nate the great vs leites is off the main card, they just booked too many fights now, with hughes fight they don't need the bisping fight, i think they should get rid of the evans match, most of evans matches end up in decisions anyways. might be a snoozefest, all the others are solid, can't wait to watch them, but i hope a swing bout if time permits will be the marquadt match, as long as it doesn't end in a decision i don't see why the ufc wouldn't show it

A knockout of Babalu (one of the biggest underdog wins in a long time) and a KO loss Gouveia, hardly qualfies of your bad judgement / bashing...why are you the one to bring up Lambert not being "main card worthy" besides you picked him to beat Gouveia by knockout. Read what i said more carefully "Sure there less known but its a guarenteed KO" which i see Cane winning.

Without a title fight on the card, imo they need to go with a 6 fight card and go from there.

All of these fights should be televised because at least one of the fighters needs exposure as they are in the upcoming title picture.

Of the 7 fights listed, I believe 6 should be main card, with Rashad vs. Irvin as the swing bout. That said, it's not fair that Evans goes from main event status to undercard because Chuck gets injured.

Because of that I think Kampann vs. Rivera goes to the swing bout/undercard. If Kampann wins this fight after his long lay off, then it's time to get him back on the main card and work him into the title hunt with consecutive wins.
