Henderson/Machida joins Aldo/Edgar on the Super Bowl card. Makings of a great show that one.

I really hope Hendo blasts through Machida, but thats a horrible fight for him.

Probably one of the worst if not THE worst stylistic matchup for Dan. He's toast.

Shogun set it up better and is faster than Hendo.

Plus Machida has only improved since then.

If Lyoto chose to make it a grappling match alone he could outwrestle and probably submit Hendo.

Sounds like bullshit to me. Losing 10 lbs of muscle should not be some type of medical issue. Both fighters seem to want to only take the fight in the nature of having an advantage going in.  It's Pac v. Mayweather all over again, except about 1/16th of folks care.

Faber is always a one fight winning streak away from a title shot. Probably not as much a gimmie as his one win in a row title shot when he fought Pulver a second time

I think that is the show where they wanted Hendo vs. Machida, which will probably be co-main event.

YES HENDO ONLY HAS TO GO 3 ROUNDS.

Considering how choosy Koscheck is in using his wrestling this could be a very good fight. I like Mendes vs MANVEL on this card too.

Bermudez will likely never challenge for a title but he is way, way above a fight with Matt Grice. UFC has been really weird with some of their matchmaking as of late.

Don't hate on Bermudez, he is a young guy that is still developing in a division that is pretty small right now.

Plus hes my boy.

It's interesting now that the PPV commercials are now featuring Hendo-Machida and then at the end having both fights at the end of the commercial.

I think I end up getting this because I want to see Hendo-Machida that much.

I remember the first ad for this at least mentioning Faber but now he's been dropped and that's kind of a surprise since he still is a minor draw for them.

Won't be ordering this card. Hendo/Machida and Faber/Ivan are great fights but the rest of the card is pretty one-sided and the main won't last two rounds. I can't in good consciense give my money to an event that has Josh Neer on the main card.

It's weird they put Court McGee/Neer on the main card over Johnson/Schaub which is sure to produce a hilarious knockout while McGee never has entertaining fights.

A friend of mine who doesn't like MMA at all mentioned yesterday that he would watch the "chicks fight" and even knew that rousey armbarred people.  I don't know what he saw to learn that...so ufc has done something right infiltrating people who aren't even fringe fans.
