i think they will add one more big fight to the card


Sorry to dissapoint but they wont! The main card is already full with 5 great fights, the remaining 2 unknown prelims may turn out to be good fights but not "big" really



and what about cheick kongo u don't think if he fights he won't make the main card????????



There are 5 great fights lined up already as the assuemed main card:

Sylvia/Big Nog
Lesnar/Mir
Marquardt/Leites
Griffin/Tibau
Belcher/Almeida.

However, Tanner vs. Okami has been added and Kongo is supposedly fighting on the card as well. Tanner/Okami has a bit more star power than Belcher/Almeida but I think Belcher/Almeida will be the more entertaining fight. As for Kongo's fight, I think it'll be on the card unless he takes on a newcomer. (hopefully not). it'll be hard to pick a main card out of these bunch of fights but that's for us fans

As for the lesnar/ Mir fight, Mir has to work on his submissions as brock's power will more than likely allow him to take mir down frequently. I don't think Brock will be able to do much on the ground. This is where Mir has to go for it and try to submit Brock. If this fight goes to decision, I think Brock will win it. I can only see Mir winning it if he can catch Brock in a submission. Whether I think he will be able to, I still haven't decided lol.

Brock has been training mma for a decent period of time now. If you take that plus his superb wrestling and freakish strength he should be able to dominate a Mir who has looked washed up recently. Cruz was green to the sport an he not only beat Mir but knocked him out. I wouldn't even put Cruz in the same league as Lesnar.

as good as mir is on the ground u can always know that Lesnar is stronger than him so i think mir will get the UD or they could be paying Mir a lot to dive for lesnar i think the ufc cant afford to have lesnar lose this fight to big of a star.
lol



You really think the UFC has become corrupt like boxing and pays certain fighters to take dives??

I don't believe that. I believe one of the main attractions for UFC is the unpredictability of who will win do to them keeping the sport clean and free of pay off's.

I disagree with that. The only way it will be a boring decision win is for Sylvia. If Mir wins it will be a sub. Lesnar is likely to lay n pray because Mir can take a punch better than Min Soo Kim and won't tap after a couple hammer fists. Mir by sub in late 1st or early 2nd is what I'm going with.

already a month away and still 2 more matches to be added at this time you might be right that the last two will be prelims but having mir vs lesnar isn't a co main event match a guy who is 1-0 vs a washed up ex champ

mir is going down! yes he has submissions, but i believe lesnar is too powerful to be caught. lesnar by way of gnp. i also take tim the "unbrainiac" sylvia to win by decision. probably going to be a boring fight. martin and eastman should be a slugfest, with eastman going to sleep.

WTF?!!!!!!!!!!!!

That is probably the craziest predicition ive ever read on here! How could you possibly think that when taking into account green BJJ guy with great wrestling VS super BJJ guy with weak wrestling = yes it means its going to the ground but boring it will not be!!!!!!!!!! thats for damn sure

OK for some seriously fcked up reason the UFC has officially announced Tibau VS Tyson as a PRELIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There is just 1 fight left TBA and its a main card fight, so it surely must be a better LW fight than that one?!?

I dont really see lesnar winning this fight unless he's just to strong for mir to do anything with, but mir has great wrestling and great bjj, and brock has only had one fight i say mir rd. 2 sub
