  • We want Jonny BONES Jones!!!

  • Georgia S.W.A.T

    We want bj penn

  • VitoCapone

    I think they are leaving this open for Jones/Evans as a headlined.

  • VitoCapone

    …..And we would love to see BJ reign supreme in Strikeforce. We need some names in Strikeforce to keep it alive. Dana was talking Anthony Johnson fighting in Strikeforce. BJ would be a good fit. I am a fan, and I like to see him win. BJ is solid. A brawl with Aoki, Evangelista, Masvidal, and of course, Gilbert would be a great run for an awesome career. Strikeforce needs some middleweights also. Keith Jardine? Come on?

    very weak card imo

  • north

    This event needs a co-main badly. Rory Mcdonald vs Che Mills just isn’t cutting it. It is obvious that the UFC is selling this by Jones/Evans starpower and hype because the rest of the card is very weak.

  • Towers66

    I think the card is great. The prelims are stacked with good fighters. May lack a little star power but as far as fun fights this card is stacked. Danzig vs Escudero on facebook? That is interesting.

  • D-rail

    Brendan Vs Rothwell in the main event makes no sense after both of them coming off loses.

  • D-rail

    This is definately a SHIT card I wont be paying for. Bones vs Rashad isn’t worth the money. They are trying to get $hameless coin from you with this card, thinking everyone will pay for these FACEBOOK bouts, because of the main event. Shame on the UFC for trying to sell this event that clearly should have been free.

  • adam1848

    No Jon Jones fight will ever be free, but I completely agree with (most of) the comments above. This is a very weak card, and if Jones gets hurt it isn’t a card at all. People wouldn’t even show up to the event and there would be a mass selling of tickets. I am a big fan of MacDonald and I think that kid has a big future, but v Che Mills as a #2 fight is a joke. Joe Silva does a great job but he’s really gambling with this card. If the undercards aren’t as scrappy as he hopes or the main event is lackluster (as it may well be), this card is a huge let down. Instead of using Bones popularity to carry a weak card they should be using it to blow up a huge card and really get people excited. I am not excited about this event.

  • D-rail

    How dare they dog Travis like that. He’s knocked out Stephan Sturve and he ends up on the Prelims? Yet, Sturve ends up on the main card fighting another loser like Roy Nelson?….WTF

  • moosetc

    Yea it’s not UFC 100 but this card is stacked full of good fights. All most every fight would be a Mean event in any other organization

    • RealmmaFan

      although I wouldnt be seeing the pay per view dont care I would like to thank UFC for doing the prelims on FX THANKS!!! im much more interested in the prelims anyways its gonna show some up and comers very exciting ones too that could easily be co-main event fighters and whose complaining about travis browne not being in the PPV HELLOOO hell have way more exposure fighting FOR FREE LIVE!!! its been awhile since ive seen prelims stacked like this and to show it on fx was the best thing about this whole event
