    I'll be off to my local shitty restaurant that always shows these events to watch this. I really need to see this card.

    Surprising to see Urijah Faber in a Prelim.

    I'm very much looking forward to Struve's comeback. I'll pray everyday so Lyoto and Weidman don't get injured two days prior to the fight.

    How is Faber vs Caceres on the prelims, but Brimage vs Doane on the main card? Brimage is exciting, so I guess they're expecting a quick mauling of whoever the hell Russell Doane is. But Faber is a star and Caceres is pretty charismatic, not to mention talented (though I doubt he is anywhere near ready for Faber). It just seems like a weird gamble to take, but hopefully Brimage vs Doane is exciting so it pays off.

    I'm excited for both title bouts here, especially Machida vs Weidman. I like Weidman, but I hope Machida wins this one. He was one of the first fighters I followed in MMA and he has looked like an absolute beast at middleweight.

    Weidman showed in his fights against Silva that hes good at keeping his cool and not getting drawn into making sloppy decisions, so I don't think Machida's classic "keep back tracking, wait for the opponent to get impatient, then pounce" strategy will be enough to clinch this one. Hes been doing a good job of mixing in more offense to his strategy ever since dropping down to middleweight, and I think he'll need more of that to get this one.

    Also, I really hope Hall can pull off the win here. He has so much talent and potential, and I'd love to see it realized.

    I think they like to put a big fight on as main event of the prelims so that people want to keep on watching and buy the PPV.

    Maybe Rousey should starting fighting in the men's division, at least then it might be an even fight. Since Machida is now down a weight class does that mean he has given up on beating Jones??

    Good to see Struve back, I thought his career was over after his heart condition was diagnosed. If he shows up in good condition, I see no reason why he shouldn't beat Mitrione handily.

    I am highly intrigued by the main event. I firmly believe Weidman got ultra lucky times two in his defeats of Silva and that it is frankly hard to gauge just how good he really is based on those fights, although it definitely did seem like he was smacking Silva around in the 2nd fight until the freak leg snap. Machida is a tough opponent for anyone and a convincing victory over him will work wonders towards convincing me of the longevity of a Weidman title reign.

    Rousey murders Davis.
