The news that a heavyweight fight between Gabriel Gonzaga and Chris Tuchscherer has been officially added to the UFC 102 fight card reminds me of something I've been thinking about for a while now: There are way too many good fights on the UFC 102 card.

IMO

MAIN CARD
Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
Keith Jardine vs. Thiago Silva
Chris Leben vs. Jake Rosholt
Demian Maia vs. Nate Marquardt
Matt Hamill vs. Brandon Vera

UNDERCARD
Gabriel Gonzaga vs. Chris Tuchscherer
Wilson Gouveia vs. James Irvin
Junior Dos Santos vs. Justin McCully
Nick Catone vs. Mark Munoz
Evan Dunham vs. Matt Veach
Todd Duffee vs. Mike Russow

with the german show showing 6 fights and having some better fights on the undercard i think they will continue with standard 5 ppv fights and choose the exciting fill ins. willy g vs irvin could be knockout of the nite

It is a good thing I will be there in person, I am so stoked that the UFC is finally coming to the NW, I will be traveling a good 3 hours to this fight hoefully other Washingtonians will and we can show Dana we are a region to have fights at. I was very surprised the quality of fight card we were getting for an untested NW market unless he is going by numbers put up by SportFight and Strikeforce in Washington.
