There are some pretty interesting match ups for this card, Camozzi/Craig, Ortiz/Ozkilic, Howard/LaFlare, plus Jim Alers making his UFC debut
The only problem I have with this card so far is that I was hoping Thales Leites would gets someone higher ranked since he's dominated his two UFC fights back and Trevor Smith really doesn't pose to much of a problem.

Leites is gonna chew Trevor Smith up and spot him out.

Looking forward to Benny Dariush in action again. Still kicking myself for picking Brennamen over him.

And I agree Big Nog's career is approaching an end. I don't see any more than 3 fights max for him.
