UFC July 19th Event (The Spider to LHW!!)
The UFC is obviously worried about the July 19th Affliction show, hence they've created their own event on the same date. Now though, there's actually something that might make it worth watching.
Two debuts for fighters new to the Light Heavy division: Brandon Vera down, Anderson Silva up. Vera is fighting Reese Andy, who I've never heard of, and Silva is fighting James Irvin.
Obviously, Fedor fighting again is still the trump card, and an American audience has been missing a decent heavyweight card for awhile. But now I'm at least interested in the UFC event and it's free, unlike the Affliction card.
I'm picking Silva by knee to the head and Vera by finally fighting in the appropriate weight class. How is Vera able to fight again so soon after being KOed though? What happened to the whole medical suspension thing?
