Saturday's UFC on FOX 6 fight card has undergone a small change as middleweights Rafael Natal (14-4-1 MMA, 2-2-1 UFC) and Sean Spencer (9-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) have been promoted to the FX-televised preliminary card.

Additionally, welterweights David Mitchell (11-2 MMA, 0-2 UFC) and Simeon Thoresen (17-3-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) have been demoted to the Facebook-streamed prelims.

Good. That's means I can go ahead and skip the facebook stream. No interest in that fight.

I'm glad thats the fight they choose for FB. It's by far the weakest fight on this card in my opinion

The placement of a fight is all the same to me, as I'll catch any fight as long as I'm off work.

That said, I'm personally more interested in Thoresen since he's still a prospect new to the UFC. He actually looked decent against Baczynski for a few minutes, until he got caught with his hands down. That's the type of thing for which I'll gladly give a fighter a second chance, especially if they're young.

On the other hand, I know what to expect from Sapo - decent takedowns and top control for 2 rounds, then a struggle in the 3rd due to a limited gas tank. It's possible we'll see something new from him, and I love it when that happens from any fighter. I'm just not expecting it based on Natal's history in the UFC.

Either way it doesn't really matter to me. My interest in both fights are about the same so it's whatever to me.
