    Machida, Spencer, Cain, Neer, Johnson, Sonnen, no idea for the rest.

      This looks like a slightly better card than than the one before.
      Rothwell vs Velasquez is going to be the truth.

        I don't know what Sonnen is gonna do with that narrow of a wrestling advantage against the bigger, well-rounded Okami. I hope after this that Okami gets to try out Maia.

            Is Pat Barry fighting on the main card or the under card? He promised to come out to the Technoviking dance if he gets a main card fight.

              I'm excited for the main card. Style clash between Machida and Shogun should be exciting, though I doubt it'll last more than a round and a half. Leg kick-off between Barry and Hardonk will be awesome too, and I'm hoping Rothwell's takedown defense can test Velasquez a bit.

                Lyoto Machida Vs. Mauricio Rua - I don't get this. Shogun is 2-1 in the UFC, losing to Griffin and then beating an ancient Coleman and washed up Liddel, and he is getting a title shot? Are you kidding me?
                Cain Velasquez Vs. Ben Rothwell - I believe Cain will be exposed as not so great.
                Gleison Tibau Vs. Josh Neer
                Joe Stevenson Vs. Spencer Fisher - SHould be a war. Too close to call.

                  I was going to go through and bold them, but then I realized I could just say

                  Everyone on the left.

                    Best option available, nothing more. Rampage and Rashad were planning to fight each other at the end of TUF 10 when this matchup was made. Forrest was set to fight Anderson just 2 months before UFC 104, and not double-booking him turned out to be a smart move, considering how that fight turned out.

                    Who else in the LHW division really deserves a title shot right now? Shogun is the best choice based on his former stature in Pride, and a fairly impressive performance against Chuck (no matter how washed up Liddell may be) in April.

                    Thiago isn't compelling or deserving based on his first fight with Lyoto, and he took Jardine completely out of the picture in their fight. Rich Franklin not only just lost, but hasn't been at 205 consistently enough to put 2 wins together in that division. Cane hasn't fought anyone yet, and isn't marketable either. I'd love to see a fight against Lil' Nog, but he hasn't even had his first UFC fight, and needs to beat someone at least top 15 before he deserves a title shot.

                          I believe that Shogun will beat Machida because Muay Thai is better than Karate.

                            Doesn't Machida also cross-train in Muay Thai?

                              Machida vs. Shogun will probably be interesting for a few minutes before Rua gets knocked out. The aggressive Chute Boxe style he's got is going to play right into Machida's hands.
