crane vs. pellegrino is on there too. this looks like a pretty good card for a ufn. there are a lot of guys that put on exciting fights, im also hoping nate diaz's next fight will be on this card. im excited to see cory hill, cote mcfedries could be good and thiago tavares and kurt pellegrino always put on a great show, shaping up so far to be pretty nice.

should be some good submission stuff from miller, pellegrino and tavares and hopefully a knockout from mcfredries

if it hazelett against swick i think hazelett could beat him by sub

Tavares vs Omigawa is going to be sick (Tavares UD)

Stephens vs Miller is going to be sick (Miller 2nd rd Sub)

Crane vs Pellegrino is going to be sick (Pellegrino UD)

Cote vs McFedries is going to be sick (This is the hardest to pick, since Cote has never been KO'd and I think that if Cote doesn't get KO'd he'll win a dec. but I have faith in McFedries and I say 2nd rd KO)

....wow this card is shaping up to be one of the most competitive cards I've seen in a LONG time.

Yep Nate Diaz will be on this card as well, but why oh why arent they making the main event a rematch with Manny??????????????? instead he fights a can to get a win and Diaz will likely do the same here!

weak matchmaking imo, i know they dont want a tainted TUF winner but that fight deserves a rematch if ever one did!!!!!!

Not a bad card so far, Cote vs Drew may turn out to be an absolute war for the 3-4 minutes it may last :p


Anybody know why Crane is being billed as the underdog again? i know pellegrino has faught in the UFC more than Crane, but i thought in a match up with to BJJ specialists, Crane would be heavily favoured?

Yep i kinda thought that at first but actually if you take into account these other factors - striking, wrestling, mma/ufc experience - then you have to give them to Kurt so he has the best chance of winning all in all, Crane by sub is more of a risky pick to make i think

yeah its a bit risky to pick him, but i don't understand how hes labeled underdog because kurt cant be that much more of a favourite can he? I don't really think Kurt has done enough to show that he's a heavy favourite, its not a Jardine vs Alexander type (Yes, we all know what happened) where nobody knows Alexander or what he brings to the table.

Tavares is going to whoop Omigawa. I predict a submission in the 2nd round. Pellegrino is also going to tool Crane. Crane has excellent BJJ, but this is MMA, you cannot be one dimensional and expect to win.

Dude if your right not only are you going to get props from me but I'll freakin touch myself! That'd be a sick ass fight! OMG not even words could describe how sick and action packed that would be! Holy shit! I need to to wake myself up! Holy crap if its real!

Drew vs Cote? Stand up brawl of the year!!!

Not hype wise but as far as exciting fights go. This could be the greatest UFC maybe even MMA card ever

Lots of good fights, but I think McFedries vs Cote is going to f**king amazing! Both got dynamite in their hands. I'm going with cote for the ko though.
