  • browill70

    (crosses fingers)

  • this is going to be a great card I’m going with diaz he is better in all areas

    • shakejunt

      except the one area that he has a history of being outclassed in… wrestling

  • Noxious209

    WAR DIAZ 209

  • what a fight card

  • I think it’s funny Nate Diaz is fighting for a title on the same card as rory macdonald and he isn’t even the co main event and he completely dominated Diaz he must be blowing Dana hommie:)

    • adam1848

      What are you saying, that the championship fight shouldn’t be the main event for the first time in UFC history, or that Penn v MacDonald should be the co-main event over Shogun v Gustafsson…and if that is the case…what does either one have to do with Diaz blowing Dana? Pretty immature comment.

      • I said it because nate had no business fighting Henderson and McDonald is way better then Diaz proof enough tonight smart guy

  • KSG

    This is awesome. I will be there from 12 to whenever they force me out.

  • datdudechrisAGAIN!!!!!!!

  • James

  • shereko

    Matt Brown on main card again? 15-11…

  • Travis Towers

    This card has the potential to be the most entertaining night in MMA history. Not that he reads these comments or anything but…….”THANK YOU DANA, FERTITA(s), Silva and the rest of the ZUFFA crew! Christmas present couldn’t be better!”

  • alberto navarro

  • onehitwonder

    only wish Big Johnson was still on the card

  • johndoe

    Newsflash @facebook-100000667732991:disqus Diaz dropped down to lightweight after his fight with Rory.

  • From a marketing point of view, this great card was scheduled to compete with the PPV event of boxing Paquio vs Marquez IV, good call UFC guys in making it free too. Pro Boxing fixed, MMA straight up
