    No disrespect to Anderson but I think before we go calling him the top pound for pound fighter he should have to fight in a weight class where the top contender is a worthy opponent. Chaell is a good fighter but got wrecked in 205. Okami back to undercard, vitor well past his prime. Time for him to move up.

      I think Vitor Belfort is in his prime now. Anderson used to fight at 167 by the way.

  • JBroce

    I would put money on vitor if they fought again. I think that was the luckiest shot since Serra hit GSP behind the ear. Still cant believe that happened. Outside of some crazy move that no ones ever seen before, I think vitor takes that fight easily.

      ya thats a rematch ive wanted ever since the first fight!

  • orange138

    I’m confused on what the main event is here… I love wanderlei but this is one of the least stacked cards ever. They would have to put two more good ones on there for me to order it. Silva by tko

    • LAW OF FIST

      Silva by tko. dont bet on it!

  • AdamBianski

    Dana should make this a free card. I would not rent this if it were on DVD, at the one stop.

  • LAW OF FIST

    Fabricio Werdum deserves a better opponent than Mike Russow. but whatever.

    • zacharydetal

      Russow has been doing well, he’s 15-1, plus Werdum will never be in title contention in the UFC. Especially if JDS is champ.

    Why concern yourself with big name bouts? This card already looks like its going to be great. The Ultimate Fighter Finale for two weight divisions is great. Both of those fights will be fireworks, all four of those fighters will be so hungry for that contract. Vitor vs. Wandy will be a fun fight and Werdum is more fun every time he steps in a cage. Plus they are catering to the Brazilian crowd with this card. They are a much bigger market for the UFC than the US and these guys are soon-to-be or already heroes in Brazil. The card looks awesome so far, I will definitely be watching via PPV or free on TV.

    • AdamBianski

      Well the biggest joke PPV just got worse. Vitor out and no one to fight Vandi. Not like it matters not only has his over rated career been over since he came back to she show (no beating short fat Japs does not make him a hero). Might as well put leban in to fight.

  • orange138

    Wanderlei is my favorite fighter hands down but…this card takes the cake for the worst one I’ve ever seen. If it had one or two more big names let alone fights I would def. Order it Im sorry the UFC ***** on u axe man

  • Michael

    PPV for a tuf finale lmfao

  • fries171

JUST AGGRAVted

  • somecokehead

    This is pretty bad for a ppv… Franklin/Silva ok Verdum/Russow heavyweights ok… the rest, no good. Although it was poorly written and in CAPS ‘fries171′ is right… Even though there are now more events, the good fights are being spread thinner and thinner over each event. The remaining fights are filled with base salary fighters or those slightly higher than base salsry (relative unknowns). The ppv cost remains the same for a product that was typically a lot better 2 or 3 years ago.

  • aironet

    Wow what a pathetic card. I would never dish out $60 for something like this. There are plenty of free sporting events I’d rather watch. TBH I wouldn’t buy it if they cut the price in half.

  • SuperNate-AO

    Silva vs Franklin as a main event? If I wanted to watch two old fossils fight I would take a fifth of Potters’s over to my Irish grandparents house. At least I would have an interest in that fight; being family and all.

  • bobbndano

    Wandy has a different game plan for this one… a lot of grappling. He’s known to go tow to tow but he needs to make sure and get the win this time. He has spent a ton of time in the gym grappling to prepare. This should be a good one.

  • Booker T

    yada yada yada…………….

  • Booker T

    won’t be buying it.

  • somecokehead

    I realise this is in Brazil, but I know like 4 of these fighters. Full price ppv… “Worst episode ever!” -comicbook guy

  • jmresidual

    I order all the ppv’s but this one. I do not think so. I do not believe it has gotten down to this.
