    This, along with Hendo/Franklin II Main Event, gives cause for showing the ENTIRE Event on PPV. I’m assuming there is some sort of PPV rule that prevents the show being aired more than 3 hours? Am I wrong, someone inform me. Because at $45, $55 for some if they want HD (not the case in NY-same price) Please explain to me why they don’t show the whole thing in its entirety. Are there that many people ordering “Springer Uncut”?

  • Patrickk says:

    I mean, seriously…how can you show these cards on an undercard. That’s ridiculous!


    My predictions:

    McFedries by KO
    Marshall by UD (Unanimous Decision)
    Sherk by TKO punches
    Escudero by submission
    Griffin by UD
    Koscheck by KO
    Swick by KO
    Santos by KO

    I know that’s a long shot of predictions, but that’s what I want to happen.

    Yeah no kidding

    It is easy to know that Rich v Hendo, Cro Cop v Dos Santos, and Swick v Kampmann are all on the main card but after that it is a tough decision. You really have to pick between Kos v Trigg, Sherk v Tibau, Griffen v Franca (Fight of the night), and Efrian v Cole. And that doesn’t even include a fight at LHW between two guys looking to go 3-0 in UFC. This is one of the better UFC cards in terms of overall depth.

    The thing in this card that would be just to good would be if the ufc brings in Melvin Manhof to face Drew Mcfedries, could you imagine the carnage with thoes two guys trying to punch a hole through each other. This could be a co main event type fight for the 3:00 or lees that it would last. I think my pick would be Melvin but olny slightly.
