The following is the complete OFFICIAL fight card for UFC 77 "Hostile Territory" according to UFC.com:

Main PPV Card:

-Anderson Silva (c) vs. Rich Franklin (UFC MW Title)
-Tim Sylvia vs. Brandon Vera
-Stephan Bonnar vs. Eric Schafer
-Kalib Starnes vs. Alan Belcher

Prelim Card:

-Yushin Okami vs. Jason MacDonald
-Jorge Gurgel vs. Alvin Robinson
-Josh Burkman vs. Forrest Petz
-Jason Black vs. Matt Grice

Thats really weird cos Jensen was heavily rumored to be replacing Eastman to fight Meia, though they make no mention its the FULL card on ufc.com like they say here so i expect that fight TBA as a prelim as well

Its surprising the Okami Macdonald fight isnt main card, even tho im sure it will be boring its between 2 top MW's whilst the Bonnar Schafer fight isvery far down the list and pretty unexciting to me

Actually this may be a good thing they are now possibly doing, it would make more sense to only have 4 live main card fights then show 2/3 of the best prelims rather than having the 5th main card swing bout which may turn out long and boring and then only having time to show 1 prelim, gives them more time and more choices between the prelims that have finishes in there, im guessing they are doing this with the Okami fight in mind cos it could be really dull

couldn't agree more man. also would like to see the burkman/petz fight over bonnar/schafer. but a very top heavy card, which isn't bad, looking forward to this.

I agree also.

I want to see more of Okami.I think they need John Perritti doing the match making again.Sometimes I can't believe how they put a card together.

But guys that fight will be seriously dull, slow striking for the most of it i think then Okami will turn it up in the 3rd and choke Jason out, or it will go to the ground and be a mostly BJJ stalemate, the fight is all Okami tho cos Jason is overrated and Singer nearly finished him, Cote choked him out not long ago ffs!

macdonald/okami need to be on the main card, its like rashad/tito.. it has the potential to be boring, but we still wanna see it

I think the Bonnar fight will be much more explosive than people expect, Okami deffffinately deserves the last main card over Starnes.

I agree that Starnes-Belcher shouldn't be on the Main Card. I'd rather see any of the prelims over that one.

okama/macdonald has to be on the main card. bonnar/schafer and starnes/belcher simply don't compare. that's ridiculous!

Bonnar doesn't deserve to be back on the main card yet and although I think it will be a good fight between him and Schafer they need to have Okami/McDonald on the main. If the UFC is so big on showing us the best fighters in the world they need to be showing top ten guys like Okami.

Well they will show it if its a decent fight, it doesnt have to be on the live main card, they will have enough time to show a few prelims but its very likely this fight will go long like most of Okamis fights, could still show it if they feel the need too, im really not bothered, id like them to just show the 3rd round

I don't even think Bonnar should be on the damn card.

I can't stand him or Bisping.
Put them two against eachother.Winner and loser get ejected from the UFC.

Okay I know that's harsh but what can I say.
