Other than Ken-Flo v. Mishima, not much of interest for me.


War Ken-Flo!

Stevenson v. Guillard should be good. Always fun to see Frank Mir gas in the first 30 seconds of a fight, too.

I noticed this isn't listed in "My Upcoming Events" yet.

Anyhoo, I think this is a good card for a UFC Fight Night.

I'm still pulling for Mir to rebound, but my hopes are fading. Honestly, he might be better off stretching his legs and going to some other promotions for a couple of years. 4 or 5 fights in KOTC or Cage Rage or BodogFight or whatever could be good for him. He's only 26 or 27. I bet he could take on guys like Tony Bonello or Semmy Schilt.

I've never seen Braga fight, but he's 10-0 with 6 submissions. He's got a win in WEC and two in KOTC. Pellegrino's a submissions guy, too.

I thought Gouveia looked pretty good against Jardine last Summer, but I didn't see his win over Combs.

OK card. Three fights that I would like to see.

I think this is a pretty good fight night card.

Has a great main event IMO with Stevenson/Guillard. The outcome of this fight will say alot about where they stand in the LW division. I believe the winner will probably be somewhere relatively close to a title shot and the loser will be put in the position of starting low and working their way up again.

I'm also looking forward to the Mishima/Florian fight. I've been kinda "iffy" on where I rank Florian in the LW division, and I think this fight will help me with my decision. Mishima is definatly a descent fighter and IMO has the POTENTIAL to compete with the top fighters. I think alot of people underestimate Florian, and this fight should be able to either justify this or solidify him as a POTENTIAL contender.

Just my opinion.

For a free fight card, the main fights aren't to bad. Sure Mir has been very lackluster and I think he'll get owned again and has turned into the gate keeper for the heavy weight division, but I don't see him doing to well. His mind isn't there anymore.

I think Ken Flo will upset. I like him alot and I think he can pull it off. His got alot of heart. If Mishima doesn't come prepared, he'll get embarrassed.

With the Melvin and Stevenson, this is a war waiting to happen. I think Stevenson will take it by sub in the second round. But Stevenson is going to take a punishment to earn that sub.

I would like to see Mir win but the gassing problem is going to be a factor I think. The Florian fight should be a good one but the Guillard/Stevenson fight will be the fight of the night. My pick would be Guillard by KO.

My problem with the Stevenson/Gilliard fight is that, although both have quite a bit to gain, they each have much more to lose.

In my experience, most fights that have two fighters with a lot to lose, end up being boring affairs. Lot's of "feeling out", or "ring dancing" or "wet blankets".

I hope I'm wrong....but right now I just don't see either guy taking too much of a risk in this bout. Result = decision (and probably somewhat controversial)


Was wondering what people think about Ken-Flo getting a second shot at Sherk if he beats Mishima? The division is stacked, so others probably deserve a shot...but how long should he toil in contender bouts if he goes on a decent winning streak?

I doubt Ken-flo would get a shot if he beats Mishima because Hermes Franca is next in line for a title shot and after him will probably be the winner of BJ and Pulver

I'm eager to see Frank Mir fight. This is his make-or-break fight.

I'm always glad to see Stevenson and Guillard fight, put em together and even BETTER!

Dokonjunosoke Mishima vs. Kenny Florian has fireworks written all over it. These guys are gonna match up well.

The rest of the card seems pretty iffy. They shoulda put Huerta, Edgars, or Guida on this card. Those guys are my up-and-coming lightweight picks for the year.

I like Ken Flo, I think he is a good fighter, and I have been entertained by all of his fights up to now.

I like what the card is bringing to the table potentially. For a free card I like it and some stars can be born so I'm all for these matches.

the Hironaka Joslin fight seems like it would be entertaining hopefully they end up showing it.

I'm looking forward to this Fight Night, but mostly because i'm intrigued to see what kind of Frank Mir we will see. I'm of the opinion that he'll be up for this because he'll realise that if he loses, this will be his last fight for a long time on a UFC card.

The other two main card fights should provide two great matches, and i can see Dokonjonosuke and Stevenson taking the wins, with Joe Daddy going on to get a title shot eventually.

IMO I would rather see the fights on spike in April than there last fight card. Stevenson vs Guillard should be a great match up, and its good to see Mir fighting again. Kflo fights to the end I dont know how you wouldnt want to see him fight.

is it just me or is no one excited about this card. Excluding the undercard. It looks like the we may have a snore and bore night. I dont wanna see another UFN 4. That made me go to sleep.
I wanna see someone get finished. Sub or KO it dont matter. I think Melvin fighting Joe is bad. Joe will totally take Melvin down and will destroy his Exciting style. Melvin will then counter Joes GNP by pull guard and sittin in it. I think this will be another Lay and Pray on UFN.
