The card doesn't look that great on paper but I'm really looking forward to it for some reason. Maybe it's just to have the Jones vs. Evans feud to be over with, I don't know.

A lot of interesting fights on the card. Might not be the card for the casual fans outside of Jones/Rashad

I'm a huge fan of MMA and this card other than the main even isn't that intriguing. I think the fights will be great but recently cards have been stacked. I think this one is a little lack luster because the main even is so big. I mean rory vs mills as the co-main event? I like Rory a lot but this is a gimme fight for him. He will destroy Mills.

I hate almost all of the UFC posters. They look like a 6 yr old did them, so I usually try and find fan made posters.

Especially this event's poster. It was awful. (UFC's version, that is)

I'm guessing FX fights were already set, otherwise we wouldn't be seeing Bocek/Alessio on the main card.

Works for me though, as I don't order the ppv's

Not the most competitive match-ups but a good number of exciting fighters.

lmfao, why is there a shark trying to eat them?? Maybe they're reviving the old idea of encasing the octagon in a moat with deadly animals. lmao.
