It's a card mainly set up for the Brazilian fans. I know it's not a high caliber Pay-Per-View card, so maybe they'll show it on Spike TV or on free TV like past UFC events like some of the numbered UFC events like UFC 89 with Bisping vs. Leben and UFC 95 with Sanchez vs. Stevenson and UFC 138 with Leben vs. Muņoz.

Yeah Dana def needs to swallow his pride on this one and admit that it's a lost cause. Use it as a way to expose Brazillian MMA a little bit more to the American audience on free TV. Don't put that shit on PPV though

I thought the fight was meh. The 2nd wasn't that great, and he could have earned a 3rd round easy, but he spent the round chasing and not throwing.

Jamie Varner of all people is fighting Edson Barboza at UFC 146. I used to like Varner when he was the WEC Lightweight Champion but he got into a lot of stuff during the series of fights with Cowboy and Henderson in the WEC. I'm not surprised the UFC is giving him another shot though. Barboza's coming off a nasty Spinning Head Kick KO of Terry Etim and is undefeated, so I wouldn't want to be Varner. Should be a fun fight either way.

Thank you!

Maybe I need to take back anything I've said against DFW if I'm going to watch.

This will probably lead to an interim title fight which Faber will win against whoever. Then Faber won't defend it and will just wait for Cruz to get healthy pretty much defeating the purpose of an interim title. Same as the WW title.

If Cruz's injury leads to a Interim title fight, it should be Faber vs. Barao or McDonald, there's no one else more deserving of a Bantamweight title shot than those 2.

Lashley lost to James Thompson at Super Fight League 3. I haven't watched it and probably will at some point, as apparently both guys gassed by the second round. Sounds weird.

Roger Grace is making his Middleweight debut against Jardine at a Strikeforce card in July.

Mendes vs. Palaszewski at UFC 148.

Last weeks episode of TUF Live and this weeks episode of TUF Brazil were a ton of fun. Go watch. The fights were fun also. I'm not spoiling it for you guys.

Delorme vs. Denis is probably ROTY so far fun back and forth round.

Lineker vs. Gaudinot was awesome. Sucks Lineker lost his UFC debut, but he looked amazing Gaudinot. He got hit with some sick punches from Gaudinot but refused to go down. Gaudinot got rocked a bunch of times by Lineker. Gaudinot caught Lineker with a Guillotine Choke and Lineker lost his UFC debut. I'm looking forward to his next fight. Dude is a legit Brazilian Flyweight prospect. Gaudinot is super fun to watch also. I really look forward to both guys next fight.

I would prefer to see Diaz or Pettis fight for the title and the other one fight Edgar for the next title shot.

Too many immediate rematches being given out, and it's really hanging things up in multiple divisions.
