    How come there's been no talk about UFC 75 yet but it's just a matter of days away.

    First unification fight in MMA evah!

    I'm going +D I'm just waiting for my damn tickets to arrive which is making me nervous, but if they don't show up, I can go to the ticket office at the arena the day before.

    I also want to find out when and where the weigh-ins will be, then try and get some time off work to go (probably not likely).

    I want to try and get lots of photos when I go, though I need to purchase a camera in the next few days

    Going to stalk Fedor too :bowdown:

    Actually its an awesome card.

    My predictions

    Page over Hendo
    Rampage will pick him apart on their feet

    Mirko over Congo
    K1 fight with crocop taking advantage of a knockdown and GnP for the win.

    Jardine over Chuck
    Jardine is a good striker and is a tough guy chuck will want it standing which plays into Jardines hands if he can keep away from the overhand right he will win I see it being over in the 2nd TKO GnP

    Shogun over Forrest
    Shogun will push the pace the whole fight and outwork forrest. I think Forrest can stand and trade with Shogun and I suspect itll go to the ground.
    GnP stopage 3rd.

    Bisping over Hamil
    Hamil is a decent wrestler with plenty of heart but I think Bisping will outstrike him easily and just sprawl away on any takedown attempt.

    Tavares over Griffin
    Should be a good fight and wouldnt be suprised to see Griffin win but I suspect itll be a jui jitsu demo and I see griffin being subbed in the 2nd rd.

    i love this card because since rampage beat chuck and since most ufc fans have no idea who he's fighting they assume it's an easy fight for rampage lol it tickles me and i can't wait till rampage gets ground and pounded out

    and

    since chuck lost to rampage people think he's done and jardine will win lmao

    this card is a source of great humor

    liddell and shogun and their challengers are 76

    seriously man a GnP tko on liddell by a guy who is more of a striker... come on now man chuck is tough as hell to take to the ground... sorry for the sack riding but w/e...

    hendo is a serious striker... he may love the clinch and GnP but he can strike... watch his fight with w. silva

    chuck is good at what he is good at. which can beat 98% of the LHW out there.

    However he is not the unbeatable KO machine everyone hyped him up to be.

    I think Jardine could give him serious problems, but chuck's experience should prevail.

    in for rampage and shogun domination :cool:

    so what happens to Hendo's light heavyweight belt if he loses? Does Rampage get two belts or wear only the UFC belt since pride no longer exists? :o

    Its worse with Wandy. Suddenly i hear people saying he needs to retire? WTF? Chuck gets caught with one punch on the point of the chin backing out of an exchange and suddenly hes washed up and rampage "has his number"? Im not a chuck fan and i see the ridiculousness in it.

    You're also forgetting Rampage absolutely demolished Chuck in their first meeting, but I guess he was a "different" Chuck back then. :mamoru:

    That and the fact that Dana White has just brought over a bunch of light heavyweight monsters from Pride, an organization that has been known to have much more talented fighters than the UFC. Shogun, Hendo, and Wandy are all major title contenders in this division imo.
