I don't understand the absence of Karn Grigoryan and the lightweight that Roli replaced. Usually Dana will bring back injured fighters. Oh well, glad to see a lot of the fighters from the show are actually going to be on the finale, unlike last season.

Karn just recently had a fight and wouldn't have been ready in time. My understanding of the situation is that the UFC wanted him to take on another fight in a smaller show before he came back. He's not in the TUF finale but we'll see him in the UFC soon.

The card looks good. I would have liked to have seen Shane on the main card, as I think he was one of the more talented guys, but I'd like to see Junie again as well and see how much he has improved over at Xtreme Couture, but I guess you can't have it both ways.

The fact that Junie has a match (esp on the tv card) is a slap in the face to every respectable fighter and true fight fan in the world.

Right on. Bader is a tough guy, but his strength plays right into Vinny's. He will fight the good fight i'm sure but will end up the loser. Efrain is going to get pummled by Nover in the FOTN. Most likely a stand up war. Can't wait to see Gouveia vs Jason McDonald. Should be a hell of a fight. Looks like a great televised card. Oh wait..............................shit Junie Brownshorts is on the main card. Maybe Junie is Dana's personal nuthugger. Beats me but that sucks to no end.

He was. But he just fought in the DC area, that might have something to do with his absence. I think that we will see him in the UFC before to long, the kid can bang.
