    I hate to be a Negative Nancy, but Edgar has no shot against Penn and Maia has even less of a chance against Silva. And it goes without saying that Hughes-Gracie has no relevance whatsoever.

    I think my favorite fight on this card is Rick Story against Nick Osipczak. :mamoru:

    Main Card

    Anderson Silva vs. Demian Maia
    B.J. Penn vs. Frankie Edgar
    Matt Hughes vs. Renzo Gracie
    Terry Etim vs. Rafael dos Anjos
    Kendall Grove vs. Mark Munoz

    Prelims

    Alexander Gustafsson vs. Phil Davis
    Paul Taylor vs. John Gunderson
    Nick Osipczak vs. Rick Story
    DaMarques Johnson vs. Brad Blackburn
    Paul Kelly vs. Matt Veach
    Jon Madsen vs. Mostapha Al-turk?

    super excited to see Penn and Silva on the same card. Gracie vs. Renzo could be entertaining as well.

    And I'll be watching it with dengar :h5:

    Stoked for 112

    card is extremely lopsided, which means there should be some highlight reel finishes and a lot of fights aired. I wont plan on seeing any FOTY fights, but should be more than enjoyable.

    Horrible fucking card. Pride or Strikeforce would never make us pay for this kind of crap.

    There's a good chance that Silva-Maia plays out like a replay of Silva-Leites. Maia's striking has improved significantly, but not enough for him to try to stand and bang with Silva.

    Also, let's not forget that Leites has decent striking ability as well, and he still tried to bait Silva to the mat at every opportunity.

    Especially since SF isn't on PPV. :mamoru:

    But I agree, this shit is lousy. I'm either going to a bar to watch this one or finding a stream online.

    Edgar by decision, you heard it here first.

    Bet it all. Win it all.

    shut your whore mouth. you should consider yourself fortunate to have an opportunity to watch the greatest UFC fighter in history fight again.

    (yes i admit i'm a giant Hughes sack rider, that's no secret)

    Am I the only one who gets excited to see any of the champions defending their belt?

    All of the UFC champions, especially the lowest 3 weightclasses, are so above the rest of their class that it is just fun to watch the clinic they put on everyone.

    I think you might be. Silva, Penn, and GSP are virtually untouchable right now and yes, I enjoy watching them do what they do, but these matchups suck.

    Silva-Maia is especially disappointing. It's not the UFC's fault but Belfort or Sonnen were the guys that everyone wanted to see go for the belt.

    Not to mention that Maia is only ~7 months removed from getting KTFO'd by Marquardt. Forgive me for being disinterested in that fight.

    No. We're just unhappy that this is a PPV event.

    There is zero fucking intrigue in the two title fights. It's like watching the 1996 Chicago Bulls play the Washington Generals.

    If thats your opinion fine. I however, enjoy watching two of the best fighters in the world.

    btw, I love how people act like ANYTHING is a "sure thing" in an MMA fight:rofl:

    I never said it was a sure thing. It's just highly fucking unlikely.

    I hope Silva don't dance around the whole fuckin match.
    BJ Penn will probably open up a big cut on Edgar and have a corner stoppage
    So yeah, fuck this one.
    I can't wait for Shogun to beat Machida again!Robbery

    1. that was one match

    2. that was (again) from just one match against a guy who didnt mess with BJ's ground game that much.


    do you like coming to random/ridiculous conclusions? only thing i agree with you on is the Shogun/Machida fight but thats not until the next event.
