If Shogun fights on this card I'm willing to bet it will be against Babalu. If this happens Shogun can avenge his first career loss.

It is so and so.... mainly everybody thinks of it being pretty decent, but the only fight im truely withing for in this card is the griffin fight. From the looks of it, it will be nonstop action, unless griffin and ramirez pull a sanchez and koschek fight. that would be depressing and would make the rest of the fights look like a waste of money. But on the other hand... if it were free, i would like it tons.

i think there is a damn good chance shogun, or another big name fighter shows up on the card because as of now the ufc page has only 4 fights listed as on the air and the other 5 say may not be shown. this leads me to believe we will have 1 more big name fighter show up on this card for the 5th on air for sure spot.

i think the card is set and we're not going to see no one added to the card. i think they only got 4 up then they will fill in the rest with the other 5 fights and picks the ones that were the best of those.

All I know is that I'm not paying $40 for this lame attempt at a fight card. The only fight I'm even remotely interested in is Griffin/Ramirez but I can always catch that one online afterwards.

I'm leaning towards not buying this for the first time in a long time. After Pride Kamikaze I told myself to never buy a card that was unworthy again. I was right that time and I'm still irked about it. I think this is the only way to show the promotions they can't get away with putting on inferior shows for the same price.

Yeah I'm not to happy with it but I'll get it anyway because I want to see Franklin and Okami.

This is the kind of card that you go to a lounge with no cover charge to watch...

Free or Not free i still Order every PPV and UFC event.Just cause the card dont look exciting on paper you never know one of the fights may turn out to be one of the best youve ever seen.Alot of mainstream people or people who may of recently started to watch UFC may not like the card becuase their arent alot of big name Marquee guys on the card..But either way ill be watching with my buddies drinking beer.hopin to see some good fights



That is the perfect attitude my friend. Iy mat not be the best on paper but who knows when someone is just going to bring it in the Octagon.

As for fights that look good Franklin Okami will be a war. If they show Marcus Davis' fight that will be good. Forrest vs. Hector should by a grimmy fight filled with a lot of heart and blood. The card will be good for all you naysayers, (but maybe not worsth $40 I go to the bar to watch anyways.

There's really no way Griffin can beat Ramirez, you have two fighters , both of them predominantly strikers, one with proven knock out power (Ramirez) and one with none(Griffin). Ramirez trained for this fight up at Big Bear and worked his hands for two months with Juanito Ibarra, Quinton Jackson's trainer. And when Forrest starts to get hurt if he decides to, even with the work he's been doing at Xteme Couture there's not a chance of him taking Hector down. Don't get me wrong I like Forrest but I can only see an upset coming when I look at any of Ramirez's fights.
