I am really exited to see Karo and ryo fight I have a fealing were gonna see a amped Karo it will be a good fight, if this card had BJ and sherk alot of people would think it was one of the better cards of the year. My crystal ball is not foreseeing any decisions so this should be a good card, and we will all see how bisping fights on his back.

im going to it, and i think it has one of the most solid cards of the year. fisher vs edgar, alexander vs silva, parisyan vs chonan, i think all the fights are great except for the main event which is going to be a snoozer.

...But Rampage without a true #1 contender. Has that stopped them before. I'm sure if they tried hard enough, they could have found someone worthy enough to fight for the title.



i TOTALLY agree. They could have put a number of guys against him and not had many people with a bone to pick. A last minute pinch for a main event would have been great to go to Rampage, thats the benefit of not having a FOR SURE #1 contender.

LOL you guys are missing a rather crucial piece of information - that being Rampage's broken hand that is preventing him from fighting until early 2008

Not sure why anybody would think the main event is going to be a snoozer? yes its obvious its the weakest main event ever but the reasons for that are obvious if you pull your head out of your ass, but its no snoozer cos Rashad will blow right through Bisping, either a nice KO or quality GnP stoppage

he also has an injured that has he has been fighting with for the last 2 fights he needs to heal, so that in turn takes him out of the picture, so no title fights, not ufc's fault

does anyone actually thinks its a bad card? everyone seems to think its good, including myself

stoked on alexander, hes definitely going to be a big name soon.



honesly a ton of people thought it was a pussy card because all they saw was rashad vs bisping for a headliner. then after they bitched nonstop on the forums, all the actual fans who knew what they were talking about saw it,stepped up and told those mofos what real mma is all about.

as to the main event. i really couldnt give a crap about it. the only thing that gets me going is i get to see one of these guys finnally lose that preciouse unblemmeshed record be stripped away. funny thing is both these guys were lucky as hell they didnt have that happen in each of their last fights. tito with the fence and bisping with, well do i really need to get in to that.. then poor hamill gets stripped of his rematch because ufc didnt wanna wait a month & a 1/2. If it was bisping hamill they would have found a better main event to take place IMO.

Most people on this sight (no matter how opinionated) seem to be rather well informed. Chonan v Karo, Edgar v Spencer and Herman v Terrel are nice match ups.
