Why? Just Why? Both are comming off of losses in title matches to Condit.

Ok, so Stann and Marshall as the lackluster main event. Bake and Sonnen in a make shift match while Filho sobers up. Ratcliff and Hicks in a number one contedners match where someone's o must go. Then two matches I just looked at thirty seconds ago and have already forgotten. Then Larson and Alessio as well as Gomex and Crunkilton on the undercard?

Yeah, it is the swing/dark bout and it should air. As I see the main event ending quick and some others as well.

Based on who the fighters are, I'm going to have to assume this fight will be aired regardless if every fight goes the distance even if it is listed as a swing bout. Possibly having a smaller fight just before the main event and having this one air over it if there looks to be no time at the end of the show.

I can't see any way they'd let 2 guys making the most on the show, having the most fans on the show, and being at the highest level of MMA of anyone on the show, having any chance of not being aired.

This bout is bound to be aired. It's gonna be an exciting fight, and could go a few different ways. I think they only have 4 bouts listed as for sure being aired, and usually they show at least 5.

Still don't think THIS should be the swing bout, but hey, what can ya do?

Also would like to see Crunk, but again, you can wish in one hand..

im surprised by this too, especially since some things ive read said the winner would be condits next opponent. i have a problem with this being a #1 contenders match too(if the rumors are true), its not like there is a shortage of really good WWs out there that the WEC could throw in there against condit to give us some new matchups.
