The fight between Anderson Silva and Vitor Belfort is in works to take place at UFC 112, on April 10, at Abu Dhabi. Carlos Santos, leader of Emirates Team, revealed to TATAME.com that both fighters called him to train at his training center in Abu Dhabi in the days before the fight. This will be the first UFC event in Abu Dhabi, and will also have the UFC debut of the legend Renzo Gracie, against the five times welterweight champion Matt Hughes.

I agree, but with as many events as the UFC does, a few bad ones in between isn't such a bad thing.

I think it's because dana wants to look good because its the first time they've been there which in all honesty makes sense

are you saying huges/gracie is more of a main event the evans/silva?

i think hughes/gracie is even weaker then couture/coleman

if everything goes right this card will have penn defending his belt plus anderson defending his belt that is what is better than evans silva not hughes gracie

forgot about the silva/belfort fight on this card, i was thinking the main event was hughes/gracie,

but pro is right, they double up they're title fights back to back like this leaves some weak cards for june julyish
