    # Marcus Davis vs. Paul Kelly @ MW

    Is it really at MW, or just a typo?

  • Monty Burns says:

    Great card, especially if its free on Spike. Cant wait to see Diego vs. Thiago

  • JOe K. says:

    I can’t wait to see the UK fans boo for no reason. Then have Bisping win a decision that is totally undeserving (home octagon advantage) just like he did versus Matt Hamill. I hope Leben knocks his block off.

    Rant aside:

    Its’ awesome that it’s free. It looks like a solid card. I want to see Paul Taylor fight. Him vs. Lytle is going to be a war!

  • I am somewhat remotely interested to maybe look up on Youtube the Lyoto Machida vs. Thiago Silva after it happens and there is nothing on TV.
    But the rest of the card?
    Sure, we all would like to see Chris Lytle bleed on cue like Abdullah the butcher but give me a break.
    Free MMA is better than no MMA but this is like kissing your sister. (for you hillbillies and italians, that’s not a good thing.)
    But people in England are going to pay to see this?
    Man, you can slap on a logo on almost anything and sell it.

    UFC is going from mediocre to mediocre.

    leben is going to bed

  • Rich B says:

    Meltzer is reporting that Alves/Sanchez is off.

  • This will be a tough fight for Leban. He is not near the fighter Bisping is and relies pretty much on his left. Granite, he packs a punch and could easily catch anyone off guard, but Bisping is a complete tough fighter that should easily take Leban.

  • stew says:

    brandon vera vs. keith jardine=lots of leg kicks

  • Dball says:

    Im anxious to see Carwin. I heard he may be on the broadcast now. Dudes a beast, i think search and rescue is still trying its damndest to locate Christian Welisch’s chin. (Youtube if u dont know what i am talking about)

  • I agree Stew but I think Brandon Vera would whip Jardine’s ass in two. Reading at Las Vegas sports news Las Vegas Sports News it looks like the undercard is still undecided for UFC 91. Does anybody know who Jeremy Stephens is fighting?
