    That being Wanderlei Silva versus Dan Henderson.

    Just because they both have challengers in their respective divisions...Wanderlei should be fighting Rogerio and Henderson should be fighting Filho, Kang or Misaki. Dan hasn't even defended his 183 lb. title since he got it. :hs:

    Diaz versus Gomi isn't as bad at least because Gomi beat Aurelio and then completely destroyed Ishida, so there aren't any direct contendors in that division now.

    The rest of the card is okay, I wish Fujita was fighting...I know that isn't Pride's fault and it's a pretty bullshit decision by the NSAC. The bouts with Nakamura and Mach should be good. It will be interesting to see Frank fight Misaki at 185, I guess we will see where Trigg is. The only other shitty bout is Rogerio against some random Team Quest guy from Africa.



    Full card:

    -Wanderlei Silva(c) vs Dan Henderson

    -Mauricio Shogun vs Alistair Overeem
    -Takanori Gomi vs Nick Diaz
    -Hayato "Mach" Sakurai vs Mac Danzig
    -Kazuhiro Nakamura vs Travis Wiuff
    -Kazuo Misaki vs Frank Trigg
    -Antonio Rogerio Nogueira vs Sokoudju
    -Joachim Hansen vs Jason Ireland
    -Sergei Kharitonov vs TBA

    i think the other fights are going to be good, looking forward to the gomi, mach, misaki, and shogun fights.

    I will enjoy watching wandy fight hendo but they have to have Wandy defend his belt

    because we all know that Shogun is better than Wandy and Hua will never get a shot unless Wandy loses

    I'm baffled by the main event as well... It does look like a pretty decent card though, and I will absolutely 100% be ordering it...

    My only concern is that this ppv is going to TANK. Other than mma related internet sites, I have yet to see a single advertisement for it...

    I agree about Henderson fighting Filho or Kang, but I'm not interested in watching him fight Misaki again just yet.

    I don't care about the belts, as long as the fights are exciting.

    Hendo versus Wandy is going to be awesome. They both don't like each other and I think Hendo make take this one. I hope Overeem is 100% and in good condition for Shogun cause that would make it a close match.

    I really wanna see Diaz beat Gomi for some reason.

    I'm excited for all of them except the Rogerio fight and Sergei vs. Warpath if it happens (although it should be amusing nevertheless)

    If Fujita couldn't fight Wes Sims then they should have just had Sergei versus Fujita..that would have been the shit

    I think if Misaki wins against Trigg it should be Misaki/Henderson and Filho/Kang for next fight. Then winner of Filho/Kang gets to after the current champ.

    I'm not saying I want it but it makes the most sense after they fucked up this card.

    They should have thrown in kang/filho fight this card, and wtf is up with this trigg and wanderlei bullshit...

    But misaki should get a title shot since he not only beat hendo in the tournament, but won the whole thing. Winner of Kang/Filho though could easily take the belt from hendo or misaki. Kang was fucked up in that last fight and of course Filho already ran all over Misaki.

    Misaki wasn't in good shape either going into the fight with Kang

    He might have not been in good shape either but he didn't go in the fight after fighting a full fight with Gono and with a torn bicep.

    Misaki was in a lot better shape than Kang.
