Style: JKD, Jiu Jitsu
Two Championship bouts and a grudge match of sorts will get me to make the buy.
Here's the full card:
Middleweight Championship bout: Anderson Silva (c) vs. Demian MaiaLightweight Championship bout: B.J. Penn (c) vs. Frankie EdgarWelterweight bout: Matt Hughes vs. Renzo GracieLightweight bout: Terry Etim vs. Rafael dos AnjosMiddleweight bout: Kendall Grove vs. Mark MunozLight Heavyweight bout: Alexander Gustafsson vs. Phil Davis
Lightweight bout: Paul Taylor vs. John GundersonWelterweight bout: Nick Osipczak vs. Rick StoryLightweight bout: Paul Kelly vs. Matt VeachDemian Maia vs Anderson Silva for the MW belt. Maia is my absolute favorite fighter in the UFC. He's not the best, I know, but I would take a face-punch from Nate Marquardt to be as good as Maia is on the ground. I'm sad to think of his chances at beating Silva.
Frankie Edgar vs BJ Penn - poor poor Frankie Edgar. I really hope this is more competitive than I think it will be.
Matt Hughes vs Renzo Gracie - This could be really really good. I'm not particularly a fan of either guy, but to welcome Renzo to the UFC I think Hughes is a great choice. I'm guessing Renzo by ruthless submission.
The rest of the card is ho-hum for me, but I'm sure there will be some surprises and excellent fights on this card.

I'm really really hoping Maia doesn't take the Leites route and get disheartened early on. I'd rather see him get KO'd in the 3rd round than watch another butt-flop marathon.
LW title fight looks like it'll be good for sure. I'm still betting Penn to win, but Edgar brings the noise.
