Could end up being the best card we've seen from the UFC in a while.

I hope they have time to show Bocek/Edgar.

UFCJunkie says Chris Lytle is fighting Jason Gilliam (lost to Jamie Varner at 155)

I'm most excited for Nogueira / Herring, I dont think Herring has much of a chance, but I can't wait to see Nogueira fighting again, he is one of my favourite fighters

This is definately the best card they have put together in a while, atleast talent wise. If the fighters deliver on this card like the fighters on some of the "bad" cards delivered, this will be absolutely amazing.

For the Ufc this is a great card...it helps having the Pride guy's in, now the cards should just get better and better..

How do you guys see Alvin vs Florian going down. I've thought about this match up many times in my head know and I can't seem to see how this will end. I this Alvin is gonna be the stronger and better JJ-fighter but Florian will most likely have the advantage standing up.
I've picked Florian but in what fashion will he win this fight?

Should be a good card. Im really looking forward to the Tito v. Rashad. I think Rashad's Wrestling may give him the ability to avoid the take down, much like Forrest did after the initial beating he took from Tito. If Rashad can do that i think he may take the upper hand. This is however his first taste of real talent in the UFC.. Should hopefully be a good fight, im excited to see Nog fight and Sherk is zawesome. I just hope Sherk doesn't lay and pray like he did with Flo. Should be a good card and im looking forward to it!

With so many great fights on this one we won't likely get to see this, but Jorge Gurgel is fighting again and I have to send my Nati love out to our towns Brazilian JJ representative. War Gurgel !!!!!!!

you really think so? i dont think it would be too crazy, but what game plan do you think he'll utilize, do you think silva is worse off on his back?

Personally I can't wait to see Tito Ortiz vs. Rashad Evans. I beat that will be a heck of a throw down. Im betting my money on Tito Ortiz.

I am more than excited for so many of these bouts. Tito vs. Sugar, Big Nogs debut, 2 championship bouts, the return of the Stephan "I use Roids and still lose" Bonnar, Bocek's debut it is riddled with excitement. Can't wait.

Predictions for the night.
Silva KO's Marquardt for KO of the night.
Big Nog grabs submission of the night.
Bocek vs. Edgar steals the show as a prelim fight for Fight of the Night.


Oh ya and Tito vs. Shad will be a memorable war. I want to see rashad win and think he can but Tito loves to prove people wrong.

It's Stephan "I used Horse Steroids and still lost" Bonnar, lol.

I love this card. I think the Tito-Rashad fight is going to be very good, as well as I thnk Robinson will destroy Florian.

no way robinson is gonna beat florian...........i really just don't see that happening.........but with it being this year and all the upsets who nows.......................

7/6/07 12:11:51PM
I see it happening much in the same way Sherk beat Florian, straight throwdown and pound. That's Robinson's style, and I don't think Florian will be able to stop it again.

after watching the Weigh Ins.. I totally think Ortiz is going to win now. He just looked big next to Rashad. I think the size will give Ortiz the edge. I know Rashad won TUF at HW and faced bigger guys but none of them come close to Tito's strength.

Tell that to Tim Silvia Size don't matter if you don't know how to utilise it.

I highly doubt Tito is as strong as Brad Imes.

This card is def. worth 39.95....its going to be a great night for UFC....

Actually, Tito's size will help him tremendously because he actually pushes a fight, unlike Sylvia.

That's two different fighters with two totally different styles. Tim used his size to beat Jeff Monson pretty handidly, not saying it was pretty but he used his size to his advantage there.

I'm not even a Tito fan but I think his size and strength can cause fits for Rashad who had trouble from being taken down by Sean Salmon. Imagine what Tito could do.

I think this a great test for Rashad. I believe he will be taken down and he will have to face some pressure. In most of Rashad's fights we haven't really seen him have to endure serious punishment. I can see this fight being a lot like Griffin/Ortiz and if Rashad wins he will be in line for a title shot. If Rashad loses I think he'll put up a fight and be bigger because of it ala Forrest.

WIn/Win in my opinion
