    Super excited for 111 but this card could shape up to be just as good with those 2 rumored co- main events… Evans better come with his A game cause like him or not Jackson is def. looking to shut up DW, Evans and the fans… i think thats enough gas to fuel a fire for rampage

    I hope Cote comes back strong because the last three guys coming back from knee injuries havent done very well(Franca-ko loss, Lauzon-decision beatdown loss, Hazlett-ko loss). I think this is a fight Cote wins for sure if he is 100%
    Also Looking forward to seeing Marcus Davis back in action.

    What a stacked card. This is the upside to all those injuries at 108. Good to see Cote back

    Just commented on how excited i am about seeing Anderson Silva and BJ Penn defending there titles on the same card… and now i have just seen this rumored card… Wow lol. We are seriously in for a treat if this card is after UFC 112… I am a HUGE fan of Shogun, so after the first fight i have been waiting eagerly for a concrete date for the rematch. UFC really seems to be pulling out the stops with these event announcements!

    This sounds like a pretty even fight. They’ll be throwing hands no doubt. I’ll be watching for the canvas nap.

    I always believed that Cote was overrated. If you remember the fight he had with Anderson Silva, he was just happy to be surviving the fight. Belcher is on a mission. Belcher will defeat Cote by Submission in round three.
