Cain is going to smash O' Brien inside the first two minutes. Too bad for O'brien, he had a 10-0 record before the UFC, then he gets put up against Arlovski, and now an upcoming prospct, whose strengths are the same as his own, but just on another level. I respect that he''ll fight ayone though.

The card looks exactly like you would expect one to look that's thrown together in quick fashion. Not even close to being as good as Afflictions. It's a nice effort by Dana to combat the competition, but the card reeks of desperation.

So i see they brought back O'Brien, but i think this move was made becuase they are looking to build cane up, and not rush him up...O'Brien fits the bill to make cain look good, i see cain having an advantage everywhere the fight is.

Why is the UFC considering buiying the IFL if they are already scooping up the fighters?

Jake was coming of a really bad back when he fought the last time he's going to give a Cain a good match. I see him winning the fight by UD

Brad Blackburn too...combine that with Dolce and Harris .... that makes 4 IFL guys....good point on questioning the IFL purchase considering that the Pride purchase went so bad! They should buy out the guys from Affliction....oh wait they just dumped them!!!

Oh yeah.....and Cain is going to destroy Jake!!

I've been watching the IFL religiously, and 4 fighters doesn't scratch the surface of their talent pool.

Bart Palaszewski - an exciting striker, with heart to spare.

Vladamir Matyushenko - EX UFC fighter who now runs the IFL like a beast. He holds their light heavyweight title and is on a 8 fight tare since his last UFC loss to Arlovski.

Wagnney Fabiano - OMG watch this guy fight. I'd buy the IFL just for him. One of my top 10 fav fighters

Rory Markham - so exciting, so tough.

Ryan Schultz - Champ at 155. Scary striker.

Roy Nelson - HW champ. One of my top 10 fav fighters.

Chris Horodecki - He's gonna be big in a few years. watch.

Jay Hieron - Welterweigtht champ. EX UFC fighter. Glass jaw, but when he doesn't get caught, he tares it UP!

Benji Radach - This guy got a KTFO on a guy with a gun robbing a restaurant he was eating at. look it up. Benji Radach is a machine.

WOOT. seriously, I don't care what kinda ninja you think you are, you gotta carry your balls around in a wheel barrow behind you to sneak up behind a guy whos brandishing a loaded weapon. And it's not like he was RIGHT behind him either, he came from across the damn restaurant, from the SIDE of the guy. Morale of this story, don't rob anything within 20miles of Benji Radach. He will find you, and **** you right up.
