I'll pick Hughes over Thiago. Everybody is talking about how good of a striker he is but i don't think Hughes will be dumb enough to stand with the best striker in the division.
Fabrico Werdum vs Vera is that far down the card?
Cant believe they have the count Bisping vs tomato can as the second fight of the night
I believe it's because his original opponent pulled out.

Bisping was supposed to fight Chris Leben. However Leben turned himself in to the police and was in jail for 30 days. He wouldn't enough time to train so he pulled out of the fight.

The only thing that can save this card is if there are a ton of highlight reel finishes and/or underdog victories, because most of the fights have an obvious favorite against a relative unknown.
Hughes by GNP.
Eagerly awaiting comments from Rogan about his 'phenomenal wrestling, All American Wrassler, underrated ground game', etc. Rest of the card? Nobody I enjoy that much, but hell.. I'll watch it, knocking back a few beers, rocking my TapouT shirt at the bar with the best of them. I still do the WTF look when people boo at fights going to the ground.
