    I have bought and hosted a party for the last 14 UFC's but I just can't bring myself to buy UFC 112, I think it is going to be a boring ass fight card and I have no interest in watching Maia and Edger get destroyed.

    So I am skipping UFC 112 to buy WEC 48 because I think out of the 2 PPV's being held this month WEC 48 is going to be a ton more entertaining than UFC 112. The Cowboy vs. Henderson is going to be epic and I think Faber may not win vs Aldo (hope Faber wins) but the fight it is going to be entertaining as hell also.

    Hell, WEC always seems to be more entertaining lately than UFC.

    Am I the only one that really doesn't give a damn about UFC 112 competition wise?

    Any card with Anderson Silva and BJ Penn is worth buying in my opinion.

    Meh, I just don't think the fights are going to be competitive enough to even warrant buying it, I am just going to stream it for free off the internet on my laptop. :hs:

    Maybe I'm weird, but I like watching the fights even when there are no title implications. :dunno:

    Everyone likes watching fights. But not everyone likes to pay for non-competitive fights and weak match-ups.

    It's boring watching when it is obvious only one fighter is in danger.

    Anybody know anything about the 112 broadcast and venue? Apparently its going to take place on Yas Island in Ferrari World? Is this an outdoor venue? Will it be a live broadcast to US viewers?

    112 will be aired live at 11:00am Central Time and then re-air at it's normal time that night.

    Ruin the card? If a few negative/unenthusiastic comments on the internet are all it takes to ruin a card for you guys then it can't be much of a card huh. If people talked shit about UFC 100, would you be any less pumped to see it? Thought not.

    You guys want to buy the card, go for it. You have every right to look forward to it just as much as we have a right to voice our negative feelings.

    Oh and lol at 'us fans'

    I wouldn't be so sure about that. If Anderson signs a new contract after this one expires, then I could see it happening.

    What's that have to do with GSP being deathly afraid of getting KO'd, whether he's fighting Dan Hardy or Anderson Silva?

    IMO the WEC has been putting on the best cards in the business for a while now:bowdown:

    My point is that I think GSP would be willing to fight him. I can't stand GSP's fighting and how people sackride him, but I think he wants to be the undisputed GOAT.

    As it stands right now though, Silva has three fights left in the UFC and he has Maia, Belfort, and Sonnen (assuming he doesn't lose in the interim).

    I have bought and hosted UFC 92-111 (except for fucking UFC 100 of all fights, I was in the middle of South Dakota on the way home from vacation) but for some reason I have no urge at all to get this UFC over WEC since I only pay for one a month. :dunno:

    Will the WEC cost the same as the UFC?
