Huge UFC fan, but none of these fights seem really appealing to me..

Phil Davis usually LNP's and with both him and Rashad being great wrestlers I see this being a lengthy, boring, and grueling snoozefest however it is somewhat interesting to see how these two will actually matchup.

Bisping vs Sonnen? Come on, Sonnen will get the W for sure im guessing TKO in the second round (remember where you heard it first).

The remaining fights on the card are meh.. Please Dana, stop watering down the UFC's and give us some legendary events like in the recent past!

Thoughts?

Which legendary free events are you referring to?

Two title eliminators! Winner of Shad/Davis is next in line for Jon Jones (if Davis beats Rashad, everyone will be begging Dana for Jones vs. Davis.). Winner of Sonnen/Bisping fights Anderson next. Not to mention, Chris Weidman is finally getting tested against an elite 185-er.

I wouldn't say Rashad v Davis would be a snoozefest. Their wrestling and stand up match up interestingly. Davis seems to be the super athlete while Evans is the more experienced tactician of the two. And I agree with the 2nd Round TKO for Sonnen actually. I don't know why you'd be upset about that.. who doesn't want to see Chael take on Anderson again? Don't get me started on how intriguing Weidman vs. Maia is.. I could go on for days about that one.

Tune in Saturday. You won't be disappointed.

I disagree but I can see where you're coming from.

I'm excited about almost every fight on the card to be honest.

- Two number one contenders will be crowned

- We'll see if Davis is legit or not,

- We get to see what Sonnen has to say next (I can't wait for the post fight interview)

- Then there's Weidman's coming out party against one of my favourite fighters.

- Roop/Swanson, Einemo/Russow and Beltran/Johnson should all be wars

- Oliveira's FW debut

There's a lot to look forward to tomorrow. And the best part is it's all free.

Yeah, it's technically Friday unless you're in Alaska or Hawaii.

EDIT: That still sounds weird. Right now it's technically Friday so tomorrow is Saturday.

You got problems bro if Bisping/Sonnen and Weidman/Maia aren't appealing to you.

At first, I wasn't thrilled with the match ups, but they've grown on me. I think we're gonna have some great battles tomorrow night. Sonnen and Bisping should be great, and I'm actually looking forward to the Johnson/Beltran slugfest.

I award you no props, and may the mods have mercy on your soul.

I guess you never watched UFC on FX last week.

Also how can you not be pumped for Beltran fighting, he never disappoints!

Same, I'd take time away from MMA if I was complaining about 34 events in one year with half of them free, when back in the day there were less than a half dozen UFC's per year, all on PPV.

Maybe we should make a side forum for people depressed about free cards on network TV with multiple fights with title ramifications. Or is that too specific for a side forum?

We can just call it "Boxing Fans".
