    Really wish that Maynard-Clementi was on the main card…

  • Loco541 says:

    not to bad of a card. It just erks me that ufc has these 10 match fight cards for ppv. you think they could afford 12 fights at least

  • KTru says:

    I would like to have seen Maynard/Clementi on main. Looks like they rather showcase a heavyweight instead (Werdrum). Either way I will be watching.

  • Bill McLaughlin says:

    I don’t think Shannon Gugerty is getting enough credit. He can beat Spencer.

  • BoRocker says:

    I think the card is fine…especially if you consider how many cards we still have to go this year….

  • james says:

    cant wait to see more of goran reljic, he looks like he may be a factor @ 185, though its too early to really tell. leites should be a good test, though i resent him for his BS win over marquardt.

  • Batman says:

    I am going to go out on a limb and say that Patrick Cote will defeat Anderson Silva. I think that with him training with GSP and all the experience he has had up until now will gain him the victory. No one thought he would beat Ricardo Almeida who is considered as on of the best in the division. I think Diego Sanchez and Tyson Griffin will also come out with a win.

  • Bruce says:

    I hoped Ricardo Almeida could make the main card, but it looks like they buried him after gassing out vs Cote.

  • Ian says:

    I’d love to see every fight on this card. Especially Franca and Aurelio.

    Those guys have some genuine hate for each other.

  • Philb says:

    Franca vs. Aurelio is going to be a sick fight, maybe they will finish early and show it. …………. Let’s hope

  • banditt2 says:

    sorry i just don’t see Cote beating Silva.

  • KTru says:

    That is a bold statement Batman.

    You would look like a genius if you are right. But for now, not so smart.
    This IS Anderson Silva we are talking about.
    Almeida beat Cote and one judge saw that as well. Therefore Cote doesnt belong in this fight.
    Spider 1st round Sub

  • Ross says:

    looks like its shaping up to me.

  • Robert says:

    Batman will be 0 for 3 with his predictions it does not matter if Cote trains with GSP he is outgunned facing Silva if he gets out of the 1st round i’d be surprised.Diego is the only of the 3 i really see with a good chance of winning his fight.
