Fight Card

Fabricio Werdum Vs. Brandon Vera
Rashad Evans Vs. James Irvin
Marcus Davis Vs. Mike Swick
Chris Leben Vs. Michael Bisping
Matt Hughes Vs. Thiago Alves

That's actually a reall ygreat card. Much more intriguing then Rashad vs Chuck.

dude i have tickets for ufc 85 and i have to say i was disapointed with the original card with chuck on it. when chuck went down i wanted to slit my wrists but dana has really pulled this one out the bag. This card is stacked now plus i get to see 13 fights im thrilled with the changes.
can't wait to see matt hughes fight with a point to prove, cant wait to see king bisping beat down Leben, cant way to see mr lay and pray evans get his ass kicked and cant wait to see the irish hand grenade go off on swick.
GET IN!!!!!!!!!

I don't think there's a bad fight on the main card. People put too much stock in 'big name fighters'. Chuck/Rashad was going to be more one-sided then any match they've got on the main card now anyways. Imagine if this one winds up being free on Spike?

it's a great card for the true fans. but unfortunately it won't sell as well for the UFC w/o Chuck on it.

This card came together nicely. A bunch of these fights really will helpto bring weight division rankings a bit more into focus.
Order of excitement for the fights.
1) Leben vs. Bisping
2) Davis vs. Swick
3) Hughes vs. Alves

Good job by the UFC, things kept on getting messed up and they did what the could to salvage the event.

Given there is no title up for grabs; this is a great card with great match ups IMHO

i am a true fan and im still not buying this. im just not a fan of most of the fighters on the card. it would make a great fight night for me, but not a great ppv. this card just isnt worth $45 to me. are there good interesting match ups? absolutly! but id rather watch it in a bar/resteraunt, or wait til the next day and watch the fights online. plus it is tape delayed for being overseas. not paying $45 for fights taht arent even live

i think the card is wonderfully stacked and if the rumors are true it will be the best free ufc event yet.

Awesome card, Hughes - Alves, Rashad - Irving, and Bisping - Leben is much better than Chuck - Rashad. The only thing that could have made this card even better is a title match.

Its an awesome card. Even the undercards good. I wish i could afford to go. I think hughes alves might be a little boring, but most of the fights should be good. I think jess vs taylor will be a good scrap and hopfully end in a hl reel k.o.
