    i dont get that yoshiro just had a title shot and now hes the first fight and doenst even get n e air time?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. That fight was one of my favorite fights so far this year. Maeda, though he didn’t win was awesome. I became a huge fan of his after that performance. I hope that it will be aired, but with 2 five round title fights on the main card it will depend on how many rounds they go as well as if Maeda’s fight is a quick one or a 3 round decision fight.

    I love the WEC fights and am looking forward to this card.

    JollyDV I couldn’t agree with you more. That Maeda fight was my favorite fight of the year. I hope this one gets air time.

    Who cares about the Filho vs. Sonnen match the division is dead after the fight,and this rematch has been talked about for months!

  • Big Eddie says:

    I wouldnt be surprised if Maeda vs Yahya was fight of the night. That one needs to be on the air!

  • Sonny says:

    If Maeda is as exciting as he was against Miguel Torres, it should a damn good fight.

    Nice to see Jens in there, as well, I love that dude.

    I just hope Rob McC doesn’t phone it in again.
