FINALLY! I can't wait!!! Tank vs Kimbo!!!

Brawling of the old school vs brawling of the new school. I don't know how you can pick Tank though. He's taken so much punishment that his chin has weakened and it has Kimbo slice highlight KO all over it!! Should a 1st round all out war!!!! Got to love it!!!

A couple more updates to the card:
Yves Edwards, who was originally to have fought on the ShoXC event on 1/25, has had his fight moved to this event. His opponent will be Edson Berto.

James Thompson vs. Brett Rogers is a rumored addition to the card, as is Charles "Krazy Horse" Bennett.

Edit: Wrestling Observer reports that Antonio Silva vs. Shane Carwin is also on the card. According to WO, "Carwin is a real prospect, very much along the lines of a Brock Lesnar. I'm surprised they are feeding him to the wolves before building him up." (Dave Meltzer's words, not mine)

Another update: Reports that Shane Carwin is Antonio Silva's opponent are false. Showtime incorrectly listed Carwin as the opponent, he has not signed with EXC. Silva's opponent is still TBA.

GREAT call on Fukuda. Hard to call his fight with Villasenor a loss.

Kimbo should destroy Tank pretty quick imo.

Yves would be a fool to stand and trade with Edson...he should be able to win this one on the ground though.

Sorry to disappoint you guys, but bad news...Gina's off the card. No reason why yet and no comment from all sides. At least we can still see her on American Gladiators.

Yes.I want to see some more of Fukuda.That guy is pretty damn good.It sucks about Carroro (spellcheck) but at least we have a decent heads up about it.

Another update, former UFC HW Champion Ricco Rodriguez has been confirmed as Antonio Silva's opponent. Time to find out just how legit "Bigfoot" really is, this will be a great test for him.

No kidding.

I thin Silva's key to victory is to use his reach as much as possible to tire and frusturate Rico.

Despite the "street certified" fight. this card has lost a lot of pull with Gina and krazy horse gone. At least my man JT is stil hanging tough and going to put the hurt on

Semi-decent card. I hope Kimbo and Tank both simultaneously knock each other out and die so we never have to see either fight again. Hopefully Ricco doesn't come in weighing 1 ton. I would really like to see him back in old form. The Ricco that BEAT Nog. Other than that.. Smith is usually entertaining and I always love to see Yves fight. I have talked to a few street toughs and they confirmed that this card was indeed Street Certified.
