    Vitor is only 32, should be the prime of his career, I expect good things from him in this fight.

    Belfort is gonna rape Franklin. 32 back in the UFC i think we're finally gonna see the phenom acheive his potential. Black Belt Jits and excellent boxing skills the guy has serious potential.

    Totally agree. I like how they advertise with Belfort knocking out Silva like fifteen fucking years ago interspersed with recent footage. Biggest yawner ever.

    I would agree had i not seen almost the same argument 5 million times before, I'm done getting my hopes up with Vitor, yes he has great potential, but he has for years, if he comes 'back' and lives up to it, awesome I'd love to see it, but at this point I'll believe it when I see it, and no the KO of lindland doesn't count, by itself the fight was too short to see where his skill set lies now

    Franklin
    Mirko
    Kampmann
    Koscheck
    Griffin
    Miller
    Mcfedries
    Matyushenko
    Dos Anjos

    Man, I don't even know who to pic for these fights. In the Main Event, I don't even know who I WANT to win! lol I like Franklin, but Belfort intrigues me too, and I know he's been training karate with Machida.

    I very much want to see Cro Cop back in old form, but it's too hard to tell from his last fight if he is or not. He still might get Gonzaga'd if he's not.

    Normally I'd call Kos over a used up Trigg, but Kos has struglled of late and I have no idea what Trigg is looking like now (skill-wise).

    And Franca should have the nod over Griffin based on experience, but again, he hasn't looked impressive lately.

    ???

    I actually don't think this is a bad card. Some interesting match ups. I just wish Swick was still fighting.

    I'm looking forward to the Cro Cop fight. Some of his earlier fights were pretty entertaining.
