Can't wait! Stipe via TKO.

Struve will choke Stipe out with his long limbs or he'll get KO'd. Don't see this fight ending outside of these two scenarios. Also, I hope Akira Corassani gets his ass kicked. Couldn't stand him on TUF.

Stipe takes him down and TKO's him? He's a boxer with a wrestling background and has done it before.

Struve's absolutely nasty from the bottom. His legs are so long that triangles for him are so easy. I can't see Stipe even wanting to test Struve there for a sustained period of time.

I've enjoyed watching manuwa & Watson fight outside the UFC but it's so hard to predict how they will do at the next level. Watson has a good chance, manuwa has probably never experienced wrestling @ kingsbury's level...

SDR is on par with Struve on the ground and Stipe took him down and pounded him out.

Great main event... two big time prospects battling it out.

I see it ending in one of two ways also (Miocic by T/KO; Sturve by Stork attack). Not ready to call it though. Micocic I like a lot. Sturve I like too... he is like a big ol' stork in the octagon.

Also Hardy/Sadollah is a good scrap too.

This card and the FX card with Big Foot vs. Travis Browne could have easily been one card. Damn the UFC and there greed/stupid tv contracts!

Totally disagree. Lots of exciting fighters on this card as well as quality bouts. Not many big names, but you can't expect that on a Fuel card.

You complain about every single card.

I actually like every fight on the main card. Should be some good exciting fights.

The only people complaining about the card should be the ones who bought tickets since there aren't any big names. The rest of us get it for free and have no reason to complain. There were just a good PPV last week that had two title fights. This is just a bonus.

People need to understand that these cards overseas are not made to cater to you. They're made to cater to British/Brazilian (wherever the card is) fans. And it's pretty good considering that.

Main Card:

Heavyweight Bout: Stefan Struve vs Stipe Miocic
Welterweight Bout: Dan Hardy vs Amir Sadollah
Welterweight Bout: John Hathaway vs John McGuire
Bantamweight Bout: Brad Pickett vs Yves Jabouin
Lightweight Bout: Paul Sass vs Matt Wiman
Welterweight Bout: Che Mills vs Duane Ludwig

Preliminary Card:

Light Heavyweight Bout: Kyle Kingsbury vs Jimi Manuwa
Featherweight Bout: Andy Ogle vs Akira Corassani
Middleweight Bout: Tom Watson vs Brad Tavares
Catchweight (175lb) Bout: DaMarques Johnson vs Gunnar Nelson
Featherweight Bout: Jason Young vs Robbie Peralta

I like this card actually, lots of name guys and a few solid prospects. Really interested in the main event, Hardy, and Sass.

Not true. Ive been excited for two or three cards this year. Lets face it, with so many events and so many injuries/last minute replacements cards of today pale in comparison to cards as recently as a couple years ago.

It pains me to see what the ufc is doing.

They are killing the sport.

They went from a company that only had the very best, to a company that takes just about everyone and anyone.

More than half their roster should be in regional promotions.

The UFC has run some terrible PPV's every year. This year is no different. The worst PPV on paper was a card that catered solely to Brazilian fans. I honestly couldn't care less and don't see the problem with that. Just three years ago the UFC put on a card with Rampage vs. Jardine and guys who were at the time a bunch of scrubs. Or that card which wound up with Houston Alexander vs. Thiago Silva as a co-main event. Let's not act like everything was great in their building period.

There are a bunch of good shows coming up. This is a good one just like the British ones that were on Spike were good ones, as in they're meant to give British fans a look at British fighters. If British fans are satisfied with the card that's what matters. If you don't like them, don't watch.

I think this card looks decent for a free one. Not an event I would buy tickets for but i'll tune in to watch it.

With this being on at 3pm, and the Buckeyes game on at 3:30. I'll pass.

It's not a bad card for being free. Free as in if you have Fuel or Sportsnet..

Same. I think the Pickett/Jabouin fight could be great as well. Che Mills and Bang Ludwig should be fun.

It's a free card. Even though they aren't great on paper, they are free, and free is great.

The main event is very intriguing, and a great main event for a free card. The undercard is solid.
