  • A little early isn’t it?

    I saw this post and was like WTF since when were numbered events on Wednesday nights …

  • So what prelims are they gonna air?

    Nick Ring, Pearson, Gustafsson and Hunt’s bouts should be aired on the Prelims in my opinion, whats your guys view.

  • I agree.

  • I don’t get the Siver/Sots fight. Nothing against Siver but there is a 90% chance he gets submitted in this one. He’s got a puncher’s chance at best. I understand the whole International thing but Sots should be fighting a top 5 lightweight, which Siver is not.

  • I agree too.

    He should be fighting the winner of Guida/Pettis or Henderson/Bocek or Guillard.

  • Nick Ring ? Really? Isnt he that the guy from one of the seasons of TUF who was on his 3rd acl reconstruction? Why bother.

  • He’s a legit fighter and he’s fighting another legit guy, so yes i would like to see his fight on the prelims.

  • Fight cards on a Sunday just don’t have that same feel.

  • i think it’ll still be on saturday, right?

    that’s just cause it’s in australia

  • are you messing? siver is an animal hisground game is vastly superior to sots. siver by armbar he has well more victories via sub!

  • What are you talking about! No way does Siver have better jits than G-Sot!

  • poor kennys getting bombarded with noob questions right now

  • Wow, BJ should have loaded up on water and fiber to add MORE weight.

  • Jeez why are penn and fitch so close to eachother it looks like they are about to kiss, makes me uncomfortable :/

  • this is going to be a long night for Jorge

  • you need to quit that black tare heroin bro

  • I am a little confused. Did Siver miss weight? 156.6 pounds is not within the usual “we give you one pound because the scales are not accurate” limit.

  • dam! Fitch looks mad skinny

  • I like how Bisping acts all professional in the pre-views interviews, says he’s more mature than Jorge, and than says he’s gonna F’n kill him at the weigh-in…

  • Why bother?? he might as well stay smaller so maybe he has a chance to use his speed to dodge Fitch long enough to KO him.


  • You have like an hour or something like that after the weigh-ins to loose the rest if you come in over.

  • And P.S. how High is Joe Rogan in that Fitch-Penn pic AHAHA

  • Infront of 1000’s of fans he was bound to get pumped up and was already pissed off, Jorge was baiting him in the build up to the square-off as well and so Bisping finally let rip. Good on him, I hope he tears his face off tomorrow, Jorge’s recent antics have no place in MMA.

  • Yea that and plus the UFC typically does not use digital scales, therefore any less than a pound doesn’t get recorded. So even tho it appears that they did use digital this time, I doubt they are going to penalize the fighters, who were likely not expecting the change.

  • I give the edge to G-Sot, but I don’t think Siver is an unworthy opponent.

    Siver has been working very hard on his ground work, and he does have power in his hands and feet. G-Sot is not known for his striking–and Siver has a low center of gravity, so is hard to take down.

    Considering all this, I am looking forward to this fight–and I think G-Sot has his work cut out for him. I don’t see this as an easy win for G-Sot.

  • If Bisping pumps up the fight–more people watch–and he probably gets more money.

    If I could get thousands of dollars just because I created a buzz for the fight, I would probably wear a mask at weigh-ins, and curse and throw chairs around.

  • Joe Rogan always wins the staredowns, man.

  • JON*

  • precisely, just cos a guy is smaller doesn’t mean he has to be disadvantaged. If he’s smaller and faster then it could be trouble for Fitch after all, with respect to striking, speed = power

  • Bisping looked proper angry, I’d like him to win but I’ve got money riding on Jorge cos of his odds and potential to get the KO
