^ yea your right cornish, i was just a little pissy that day. as for houston, i am not on his nuts, i just respect what he has accomplished. i know silva is a great undefeated fighter who will give houston a great fight, but all i am saying s that i would like to see how he would stand up to griffin or jardine, although not so much jardine, because they are a little better than silva. silva can very well win this fight and his record says he should win this fight, but i still think houston is going to win. and your right about karo, and that this isnt perfect, but maybe put him up against davis, because davis is always ready to fight.

I think knockout of the night will be Alexander over Silva. Fight of the night: Fisher vs. Edgar. I just realized that only UFC shows from england have been broadcast on Spike. I'd pay to watch mma anyday of the week, but not every1 is like that. The UFC better realise that

i like the bisbing vs evans matchup even though its not worthy of main event status



I agree

They should put Tito on the card aswell.



They should put tito vs dana on this card !!!!!

You have no idea how happy I am that Rashad Evans is facing Bisping rather than rematch with Tito Ortiz. I hate Tito, and I think that Rashad won that first match hands down.

I think that Rashad will destroy Bisping in this fight. He's arguably at top 5 LHW (I have him at 5), and Bisping is a borderline top 10 (I'd put him at 12 or 13). I think what the UFC could be trying to do is convince Bisping to move down to 185. With a loss to Rashad, he could see that he can't compete at 205, and he could move down and he'll be solid at 185. Look what that move did for Rich Franklin's career.

I agree he is very good and will wreck Bisping but he aint a top 5 LHW dude! Who do you have below him then? cos you simply have to rank these guys above Rashad - Rampage, Hendo, Wandy, Chuck, Jardine, Forrest, Shogun - so you could have him at #8 behind all them at best i think

Good amedments to the card, i still think Lombard would of been a great fight for Karo and would of been FOTN but Chonan is a good replacement (would of preferred Koscheck mind), but thats made the Alves fight more interesting as Lytle is 1 tough guy to finish so that will be a fast paced war much like his fight with Lawler at UFC 45

Win or lose, Spencer Fisher has been in some great fights recently. Fisher/Edgar has the most potential IMO.

My only thought on this fight is that I hope it is not a pay per view. The UFC should never have to put on another pay per view event that doesn't have a title match as the main event. They can make enough money off commercials on spike ar another network to cover giving the fans a free event when there is no title shot. Some fights like Liddell vs Silva are and exception(well if they could both still fight) but for the most part these fights should be free.

The main event is kinda weak, but all the other fights are all high quality. Damn I cant wait for Alexander vs Thiago, Ryo vs Karo, Edgar vs Spencer. I will also gladly pay the ufc $1.99 for the Alves vs Lytle fight. I recommend the Alves vs John Alessio if you havent seen that one. I am actually extremely pumped about this card, I might even buy the dvd on this one.

I'm hoping this card turns out like the last few that've looked lackluster on paper but turned out to be solid events.. looking forward to seeing Karo fight, and good to see Edgar against a game and healthy Spencer Fisher.... while the main event isn't of high quality, hopefully the fights turn out so

Great Card. I can't wait to see Karo back in action and also the return of the former champ David Terrell but i think Frankie Edgar and Spencer Fisher steal fight of the night no doubt.

i dont know what fight will be the best but i think that the alexander silva fight would be a good stand up war and bisping is going to get dominated.....but i dont think hes getting finished in the fight reshad by decision not looking forward of seeing that fight though. karo and chonan should be good too.

Even though the main event isnt two hugh names or a title shot, i still think the fight wil be great. And everyone who says this card is weak is out of their minds. Every fight looks like it has the potential for FOTN no doubt.

this event is going to be tough to call, i am a little worried as these fights can go either way.

and i can't believe reinhardt is such an underdog, i don't think he is gonna win, but +620 against joe lauzon is pretty unfair. im just gonna throw some money in there just in case and i can see a lot of people winning big if he can pull the upset. lauzon is good, but they are severely underestimating jason, although i think j-lau will still win.
