Yeah whoever said there was a down side to the WEC-UFC merger is very wrong.

Zuffa is only going to keep improving their product, and the lineup of events we already have slated for 2011 is proof positive.

This fight has such potential for a great fight, as of now, I'ma take Roller but Thiago has surprised me before.
