    Sounds good to me. Hope those fighters can pull off victories. Will be some tough match ups tonight. I see some entertaining fights.

    They say that the JDS-Cain rivalry will end with this 3rd fight, yet I don't buy it. HW division is pretty barren of elite level guys. Some brawlers sure, but any honest assessment will clearly show these 2 are currently the top fighters with both size, skill and athleticism.
    There was talk about Jones moving up to HW before the Mauler got his hands on him in Toronto.
    The mere notion now is utterly ridiculous. Jones literally doesn't have the body type to put on enough weight to last more then 3 minutes with guys the size and strength of JDS or Cain. Barring the famous Overeem juice of choice, lol.

    I see a 4th fight sometime next year if this battle is even somewhat close. Cain seems to be supported well by White and the office because it pulls in lots of Mexican fan and media interest.
    Brazil has always been MMA crazy for over 20 years.
    So if Cain loses again to JDS, I see him getting another shot unless someone in the division can score some impressive wins and build up a bit of promotion commotion. Cormier?

    Hope JDS wins, yet one has to give credit to Cain because he is very well rounded. His Latrino pride thing is cliche and stupid ethnic pandering and no doubt annoying, but he is technically sound and seems to be relatively cool under pressure and sticks well to his game plan.
    JDS can win and it will be a deserved victory over an elite HW.

    enjoy the fights everyone.

    I'm going to boycott this card only because it is way too pro caste. They have good white fighters against good white fighters. All the other fights the whites are huge underdogs.

    On this card the only white guy that might have a chance is JDS.

    Well, sad to see Dustin Pague lose. He runs a gym in my town and I will likely move my training there in the next month or so.

    At 1-4 he is now likely out of the UFC. Sad but he never really improved his game. And he was jobbed on a few of those split decisions as well.

    Marquardt should handle Lombard. And I give Roy a punchers chance since Cormier lost so much weight. Would love to see JDS win but I think Cain might win.

    But throwing Montague in with Dodson in his first UFC fight! I thought Dodson beat Johnson for the belt.

    Jordan should beat Gonzaga but they are both white. Same with Dolloway and Boetsch (I got Dolloway).

    Pague had some potential, he never improved on areas of his weakness, like his striking and his cardio.

    I totally agree with you on Montague, you put a guy making his MMA debut against the top contender in the division. They keep giving Dodson white fighter making there debut. This is Joe Silva match making.

    They gave some Brazilian can making his debut to Phil Davis as well last year.

    We would never see guys like Gustaffson or Ian McCall getting guys making their debut.

    They keep paddingPhil Davis's record. Glover wanted to fight Davis and instead they gave him Bader. Knowing Glover would ko Davis in the first round.

    Nate Marquardt is expected to retire, apparently he has become obsessed with the bible and something like ten hours a day on bible studies, and hasn't been training much. Over-all this has been the worst UFC card ever.

    Roy Nelson could beat Daniel Cormier. Nelson has heavy hands and has the best chin in the HW division.

    After Cormier said something like: "I want to beat Roy Nelson for Dana White" (because White and Nelson hate each other), it was funny how Nelson called Cormier's ass-kissing remark an "Uncle Tom move."

    In order to fully enrage Dana (Anti-)White, I'd love to see Nelson defeat Cormier tonight, then beat JDS/Velasquez for the HW belt.

    Wow I had Dollway winning 29-27. Though that was a B.S. decision.

    Personally, I love to hear that (thanks for sharing). As a Biblically (KJV/AV) adherent Christian, I try to read/study God's Word daily. However, I usually only get 30-60 minutes in (on average). I'd love to have hours of daily Bible study. :) Is he going into the ministry (seminary, etc.)?

    Nate is 1-3 at 170 so if he doesn't retire he might want to go back to 185.

    Dodson look and acts like a retard. But he is a good fighter at 125. Of course they gave him a guy making his debut in the UFC.

    JDS should have sprinted away to circle out instead of allowing Cain the chance to clinch or shoot.

    Werdum matches up very well with Cain. Cain will want to keep that fight standing but Werdum might have better standup than him once the threat of a takedown is taken away.
