  • This card is looking awesome

  • wow what a great card i hope erick silva works on his wrestling def or subs from the back i see fitch trying to lay and pray but standing up fitch will get ko’ed. maia vs story should be fight of the night

  • SuperNate-AO

    Best card in along time. Hope everyone stays healthy. Huge fan of Aldo, Belcher, Glover, and E. Silva. Like Vitor too but Belcher is on a roll. (I know I will take heat for that.) Even the prelims look good!

  • markrenton

    If everyone can stay healthy, this is the best card of the year

  • adam1848

    I agree with the previous comments…FINALLY a card that interests me!! 149-152 have been jokes. This is how every PPV card should be stacked. Hope everyone trains smart!

    Belfort v Belcher is gonna be sick!

  • ^Well I think all of us may have jinxed the card by praising it so much lol

  • stak

    the ufc is really making it easy to save money from august to november this year.

  • Anthony Lopez

    Why the hell is the main event a three round fight?

    • drkdisciple

      Does not matter if its not 5 rounds…this fight will end before the 3rd round is over!

    • shakejunt

      i think 5 round main events have to be the original fight. dumb, but understandable. it’s a contractual thing

    • They did it because of the short notice for the fight. Anderson probably could have pulled together for five rounds, but Bonnar hasn’t been fighting/training much for a while.
