Awesome card already. Now comes the waiting game to see who gets "injured." Im predicting Shogun.


Of course, good for nothing Severus Snape is nowhere to be found when there's a troll in the dungeon.

Sweet baby jesus, we get this free?




At the rate we've been seeing lately, injuries will likely take atleast one match up out. But...

1.War Diaz.

2.Give Gusty a title shot if he wins.

3.War Rory

I love the Gust/Rua match up, it'll be a barn burner for sure. I gotta go with Gustafsson though, he's too fast for Rua.

Great card and I definitely hope Gus takes that final step to top contender status.

This sums it up pretty nicely.

Randy Couture recently called out Steven Seagal. I wonder if that is going to fill the open slot.

Does anyone think this fight card outdoes the first UFC on Fox card in ratings? (That number was 5.7 million; UFC on Fox 4, by contrast, pulled in 2.44 million.)

Considering the positive reviews from the last UFC on Fox and the name value Nate Diaz has, with some promotion from Fox themselves, I can definitely see this drawing in a strong audience. That's a big if though; Fox has been reluctant to throw any promotional muscle behind the UFC since the UFC has used their network programming to promote fights that are not exactly the biggest and greatest.

I bet it would be both more competitive and more anticipated than Couture vs Toney.

McCall vs Sylvia

midget vs bear



Personally, I think Gonzaga would be a better bear. You have to take into account the hair factor.

On a more serious note.....


DAMN!!!! This is an amazing card.

Maybe this is the UFC's way of making up for some of the injuries that have been plaguing cards lately?

I really like Gustafsson-Rua. Shogun didn't look good against Vera and he needs to prove that he's still one of the top guys in the division. Gustafsson is an absolute monster and if he beats Shogun (an all time great) then he will be a great title challenger for Jon Jones (or dare I say Dan Henderson??)
