Matt Wiman vs Mac Danzig is off the card since they both have injuries.
Alan Belcher withdrew from the main event fight with Demian Maia (who was moved to the UFC 118 card against Mario Miranda) after undergoing emergency eye surgery for a detached retina. Belcher stated on his Twitter account that he started to lose the vision in his right eye whilst in Brazil. We wish him the best in his recovery.
Picks? How will they win?
This event precedes the season premiere of The Ultimate Fighter: Team GSP vs. Team Koscheck
I don't know what is going to happen; but I still want to see Nate the Great pummel the living **** out of Palhares.
Is Palhares is the shaved gorilla that nearly tore someone's leg of in his last fight?
Yes - there is some discussion of it on the UFC 111 thread.

Reason: Made the post look a little neater
This is another card with a bunch of mid level guys and some unknowns...it will probably be great!
I thought Palhares got in trouble for that ass clown move (not his first btw)!
I will truly enjoy watching Nate the Great pummelling that tool! Marquardt by superior Hulk-smash gnp!
Yes, the NJ athletic commission suspended him for cranking the heel hook after the tap and referee intervention. To be fair to Palhares, he did apologize. Apparently fighters in his camp were trained not to release until they were 100% certain the referee was there to stop the action, rather than just feeling the tap. But yes he did crank that heel hook after the referee was there and it's happened a few times.

Take a look at Bustamante vs. Lindland and you'll see why I think Bustamante trains his fighters not to let go unless they're sure. Not saying it's the best way to go about things, and things have gotten way better since then, but I think that is a major contributing factor to his training being the way it is.
In the post fight thread we (I), discovered that he had held on to locks long past first tap like THREE times. This was not his first.
