    UFC 102 main card to include Leben vs. Rosholt, Marquardt vs. Maia, and Hamill vs. Vera

    Despite the event being more than two months away, UFC 102's complete televised main card is set.

    The event takes place Aug. 29 at the Rose Garden in Portland, Ore., and as previously announced, Randy Couture meets Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira in the main event, and Keith Jardine takes on Thiago Silva in the co-headliner.

    Rounding out the televised pay-per-view main card are Chris Leben vs. Jake Rosholt, Nate Marquardt vs. Demian Maia, and Matt Hamill vs. Brandon Vera.

    All of those bouts were previously reported by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com), as were a slew of preliminary-card bouts the UFC today revealed.

    They include Wilson Gouveia vs. James Irvin, Junior Dos Santos vs. Justin McCully, Nick Catone vs. Mark Munoz and Matt Veach Vs. Evan Dunham. None of the bouts is slated for the live broadcast, though time-permitting, they could air via tape delay during the night's pay-per-view airing.

    UFC 102 marks the UFC's first-ever trip to Oregon, which is part of the U.S. Northwest, which has long had a fascination with collegiate and amateur wrestling and has since become a hotbed for MMA.

    Tickets for UFC 102 go on sale later this week.

    The latest UFC 102 card now includes:

    MAIN CARD
    • Randy Couture vs. Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira
    • Keith Jardine vs. Thiago Silva
    • Chris Leben vs. Jake Rosholt
    • Demian Maia vs. Nate Marquardt
    • Matt Hamill vs. Brandon Vera
    PRELIMINARY CARD
    • Wilson Gouveia vs. James Irvin
    • Junior Dos Santos vs. Justin McCully
    • Nick Catone vs. Mark Munoz
    • Evan Dunham vs. Matt Veach

    Gonzaga has been rumored to be on this card too. Really a damn solid card.

    Demian Maia vs. Nate Marquardt is the Main Event in my mind.

    although i dislike Jardine, I think him and Thiago is going to be a very fun fight to watch.
    Randy vs Nog is going to be a fight of two legends. Dont really want either to loose though.
    I have no idea who rosholt is, so im guessing its a present to leben. Good to have him back- if he wins put him against wanderlei.
    NAte vs Maia is going to be off the hizzle. For shizzle.
    And Vera is going to let it be known that he is back- i hope to see a very strong performance from him.

    Marquardts too good to get caught in a sub imo, even though it IS Demian Maia.

    Vera looked really good his last fight, although he still looked a little afraid to get hit. If he can get his head right he'll start tearing up the LHW division imo.

    I reaaaally want to see a fight between Vera and Shogun. I don't want either of them to lose but it would be such a good fight it'd be worth it.

    i see maia vs. nate going like mayhem vs. jacare's first fight :hs:

    nate probably won't get caught in a sub, but he'll be on the defensive for most of the fight

    I dunno, i don't think Maia will be able to do anything against Marquardt on his feet and I dont think he'll be able to get the fight to the ground. If Maia wins it'll be because Marquardt got sloppy, fucked up, and got subbed somehow; but with Greg Jackson as his coach i dont think that'll happen.

    nate's boxing isn't too shabby, but maia will probably pull guard or something if need be

    he isnt pulling shit. Nate's gonna lay a beating of massive proportions on him.




















    or grind out a lackluster decision. either or.

    lol yeah, i'd say 1st round ko or tko but Nate probably won't want to risk the fight getting taken to the ground doing some ultra street fighter combo.
