  • Savage

    good fights so far.

  • Freakinmcguigan

    Maybe it’s just me, but it looks like the UFC wants a showdown between the American Wrestlers vs. the Brazilian Strikers. This is the Mixed Martial Arts, may the fans never forget that!

  • Shawn Workman

    Belfort with a flurry in the 1st!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Get2DaChoppa

    Looks like both fights booked so far will end the same way. That is with the american winning by ground and pound.

  • Johnny Luttrell

    If the fight was happening in Brazil I’d pick Belfort. Weidman all day!

  • Dave Larry

    Nahw man.The co main event will not end in gnp.The american may very well win.But it will be by ko or ref stopage.Jr vs Stipe is a great match up.Dont really see it lasting past 2nd rd at most.
