So, I'm thinking this will be my first live UFC experience. Two matchups are rumored (not officially announced) and they are:

Joey Beltran vs. Matt Mitrione
Jeremy Stephens vs. Melvin Guillard

What other matchups (or fighters) would you expect/guess to be on the card?

Chris Lytle is pretty much a guarantee, imo. I'm thinking maybe a Mir/Nog rematch as a main event?

Shogun-Rashad is the only title bout that you could possibly have since all the other belts are either tied up till after TUF or being defended within a month or two of 119.

I think Matt Hughes is a very strong possibility since he is from the midwest and hasn't fought since 112, but I think he is only interested in those legends matches so I don't know who they could really get in there with him. Maybe Serra- Hughes 2 since Serra hasn't been in there in a while.

I just looked at a couple of the past cards and seen who hasn't fought since their last fight or doesn't have one scheduled before this one and this is some of the guys I came up with.

Brandon Vera
Gabriel Gonzaga
Cheick Kongo
Mike Swick

Now I don't know much about prospects from Indy but one vet from Indy that could find his way back on the card is maybe Irish Jake O'Brien. He was born in Indy and is riding a two fight win streak outside the UFC.

Anyway, if you do end up going hopefully you get a nice card to watch. UFC 111 was my first live event and it was well worth the money.

Hughes is fighting Almeida @ 117 in Oakland.

Man I dunno if he could make the quick turn around or not... but I'll tell you what would be a good scrap if they could make it happen-

Condit vs. Lytle.

Both guys bring it 100% every single time they're out there. Both are good standing, both are good on the ground, both have boundless energy. I'd pay good money to see that fight.

Ive heard rumor of Nog/Kongo but i dont trust any sources, unless its a reliable one. Im just curious to hear who the main event will really be.

I have a feeling were not going to get the best fights, especially considering mitrione vs beltrane si on the main card. I know mitrione is from indy but he should not be in the UFC at this point.

Yeah that's why I said I dunno if he can make the quick turn around. For that matter I guess Condit will be making a quick turnaround, too. Since he's fighting this weekend and all.

I'm tellin you, though. That would be a scrap for the ages. I'd probably pick Lytle via better wrestling but it'd be damn exciting.
