One of the problems when a promoter does 30 shows a year, as the UFC is doing this year, is that there will be cards which are bereft of stars.

And, at first glance, The Ultimate Fight Night card tonight in the Pearl at The Palms (Spike TV, 9 p.m. ET/PT), seems to be one of those. The main event, a welterweight battle between Josh Burkman and Mike Swick, has no title implications.

Berift of "stars" or not, a good fight is a good fight and I see some good fights on this card tonight. I dont know about anyone else but I'm pretty excited about it.

I've been waiting for this fight night for a while. I was a huge fan of a lot of the TUF 5 guys. I'm really hoping that the fights pan out the way I want, and that I get to see Cole Miller's fight, and Cory Hill's fight.
