    Jose Aldo vs Frankie Edgar – MAIN EVENT

  • Hebrew Mustache

    Holy ****. Best card I’ve ever seen.

    • drkdisciple

      Good card indeed just try not to fall asleep during Fitch vs Maia

      • WhiteyWhiteman

        That fight will be good…..

        • Mandingo

          when has Fitch ever been in a good fight? grapple F’s everyone who isn’t GSP or Johnny!

          • Lewis Simeon

            his latest fight with Erick Silva was good

          • drkdisciple

            Doubt you say that about any Fitch fight ever again. Fight was good because of Erick Silva. Fitch was unable to keep him down. In this case he is fighting Maia who wants to stay on the ground. When its all said and done this will be a bad clip that will be shown on some gay porn movie.

            drkdisciple I would like to fight you. Anyone as disrespectful as that deserves a couple good punches to the face. 15-2 in the Ufc and you talk that kind of garbage against him.

            You don’t have to like his style but as a fan of the sport you should no better.

            Shame on you!

          • You must remember that the key demographic when the UFC began heavily marketing it’s product was the late night wwe crowd/average redneck. I believe that you have encountered that demographic here.

    hell of a fight card

    Give Fitch a break. His last fight with Silva was one of the best fights of the year and that came after he promised to not be safe and start going for the kill. I believe he is done playing it safe. It has not gotten him anywhere in 8 years so now he is trying something different. He has awesome potential to put on good fights.
