bisping was just interviewed of setanta sports news where he confirmed he had been added to the ufc 85 card (get in!) and it was also announced but wouldnt be confirmed that matt hughes vs tiago alves will be the headline fight. This has saved ufc 85 for me and cant wait to experience the atmosphere for mike fighting in britain again last time the roof nearly blew off so glad i got my tickets early.

Still not "Ice man VS Shogun" However Hughes Alves and Leban - Bisbing have the makings of a great fight-

Go hughes-
I want Hughes VS Serra
also we can give Karo another shot at Alves in which Karo smokes him.....

Matt Hughes is going to get finished by Alves. I suspect a late 2nd round or 3rd round KO/TKO.

I hope Bisping ends up fighting Leben. Potential Fight Of The Year candidate if Bisping and Leben end up fighting.

Alves is the future, but is the future now? I think so. Alves by KO

Odd, I'd be much more excited to see Karo vs. Hughes...even though tecnically Alves is above him. I don't know, even with the win, I don't take Alves seriously.

So if Alves wins, i would guess he would get a title shot right after Fitch. But if Hughes wins, where do you think he goes from there? A title shot doesn't seem appropriate seeing as he was beat by St. Pierre twice. I was hoping for Hughes vs. Serra, to me that seemed to make a lot more sense. My only guess is Hughes would need at least 2 more top 10 wins to get a shot.

Hughes says, no matter what happens against Alves, he'll end up fighting Serra next. (YEESS!!!)

Hughes should be able to negate Alves on the feet, take him to the ground and do whatever to him on the ground. He might stop him, but I say Hughes by UD.

As for Bisping/Leben, all I have to say is "WOW!" This could've made a good main event but I think it makes it place nicely as the co-main event. This one indeed has "FOTY" applications. The UFC have certainly delivered in bringing in reinforcements to save this event.

As one of you crazy kids said above,

WAR UFC!!

I'd have watched the event anyway but, having Hughes, Bisping and Alves on it has made it even better.
