Fitch believes Cain is the next big thing at HW so I'll believe him. Cain by 1st round KO!!!

WAR CAIN!!!

this better be good considering it may take the place of herman vs maia, i'll check a few past fights from the two and make my decision but so far i'm kinda disappointed.

oh and rampage said the same about kongo.. i like new talent so who knows.

So is this a 11 fight....possibly 12 fight card now or have they scrapped Maia vs Herman and going with 10 fights?

they better not have scrapped the Herman fight, I was hoping Maia could pull off a big win, and prove he's the real deal.

and I will go with Cain as well, although I dont know that Morris guy....

yep. according to UFC.com, this fight will no longer happen, at least in UFC 83.

i was looking forward to seeing Maia make a run for silva's belt

Silva would destroy Maia!!! 1st round!!! Herman's fight is cancelled according to UFC.com....too bad!!

first off i have heard really good things about cain, should be easy win for him

second i think that the ed herman bout will be moved to either may to replace the thiago silva bout or go to june to be on a main card
the ufc isn't going to air the fight anyways on the main card, so why have a good fight not aired?? it will happen but i think it will be moved, they might just scrap the whole silva fight but i doubt it, i see the ed herman bout being moved to june,

Well first, the ufc or ufc.com has never stated that the Herman vs Maia fight was off, they simply haven't listed it officially on their fight card. However, in an article on ufc.com annoucing the ufc which you can find in the archives, they clearly state Herman is fighting Maia in Montreal, so until we hear otherwise I would assume its still on.

I found some videos of both of these guys. You can check them out in the video section on this site.

From the looks of it, it looks like Velasquez is a wrestler with solid conditioning. Morris looks to also be a wrestler with solid all-around skills. Morris (8-2) has more experience, but Velasquez (2-0) looks more impressive from videos. Should be an interesting fight, but if they are replacing Herman/Maia with this, then I feel cheated.

Maybe they are moving that fight to UFC 84 where Rashad Evans was taken off of the card. Maybe it'll be on the main card there at Ill will. We can only hope! Maia is going to be a star.
