Why would you have Shane Del Rosario vs. Gabriel Gonzaga on the main card instead of Edson Barboza vs. Evan Dunham? I guess the need to fill the main card with HW fights was over welming?????

SAW BOUT order. Paul sass vs volkman will be on fx but hardy vs bang won't be. Hardy sure has fallen down the bout order. From title fight to co main to last fight being main event to now not even tv shown

I don't understand this at all either. Barboza vs Dunham is an amazing fight... at least it will be on FX.

I suspect they will market the card as "Heavy Hitters" or "Big Eaters" or something along those lines. "UFC 146: Iiiiiits Feeding Time!!!!!" sponsored in part by Golden Corral

with all the HW fights on the main card, im scared that it will turn out to be kind of boring. i like the HW's but we all know the possibilities for fighters to gas out.

Well at least this one isn't in Colorado like UFC 135. I'm thinking with all the heavies on there, the main card should wrap up pretty damn quickly. If I'm wrong then it promises to be an ugly night of fights.

we'll get a steady stream of undercard fights on the ppv with this main card.
