Pretty?! This card ****ing rocks. If you had Schaub/Johnson as a 5th fight, it'd be better than most PPVs as of late. LOVE this card. I think Diaz will win. The Gustafsson/Rua fight is interesting because I genuinely don't really know who will win. Gustafsson has looked great but I'm not sure if he's at Rua's level yet. Should be a good test.

Agreed. Best free MMA card that I can remember.

fox cards are the freaking ****. love what dana white and the ufc are doing with fox events. problem that i have is i have a feeling that we are getting this title fight for free not because ufc wants to showcase a title fight for free and generate interest but because henderson isnt a big ppv draw.

Pulling for Diaz and Gustafsson.

After Henderson's last fight, it seems the judges are bought and paid for, so I wont pick against him until he loses, which I hope he does against Diaz.

Can't wait to go to this, so stoked. The top 3 fights could all potentially be headliners at other events. For the main event I'm going for Nate to win, but Henderson's a big LW with a good wrestling background and that has historically been Nate's kryptonite.

I agree about the matchup. It very much reminds me of Condit vs. Nick Diaz. Like Condit, I expect Henderson to be too smart to get into a brawl and outpoint Nate. Would love to see a finish, though. It's been way too long since Bendo ended a fight.

I agree. Quick punch-kick combos for Henderson, then getting out and circling. I see him using tons of kicks early, and 'circling', a lot.

I do hope these guys stand up, though. With Nate, I always fear a repeat effort from his Joe Stephenson fight, where he pretty much gave up when the fight became a wrestling match. If Henderson isnt getting the points in the standup, I could see him riding Diaz, but Henderson likes to fight more than he likes to wrestle. Not sure if Benson will finish him, though. He hasnt had a stoppage since WEC vs Cerrone, but thats exactly how he would finish this fight.

He needs to be both Motivated Penn and In Shape Penn, and that hasn't happened very often in the recent past.

It's Rory.

Probably the best prospect to come up the ranks since JBJ.

Agreed. I thought he lost both to Edgar but the last one was so blatantly a win for Frankie so it's hard for me to see Diaz winning by decision. Nonetheless, I'll be cheering for Nate. I'd love to see him sub Bendo.

I'm so curious to see what kind of effort BJ Penn brings. I'm a huge fan, but he hasn't seemed to be putting his heart into this for awhile now.

Ok, Rory's good, but he's not that good.

Rory is overrated, and this time I actually believe that Penn is in great shape. I'm not as confident in Rory as I was at the time this fight was announced, but I still think he takes this.

I like Rory a lot, and if he wins this fight I'd want him to fight Hendricks if GSP fights Silva, but this isn't going to be easy for him.

Main Card (FOX):
Lightweight Championship Bout: Benson Henderson (c) vs Nate Diaz
Light Heavyweight Bout: Shogun Rua vs Alexander Gustafsson
Welterweight Bout: B.J. Penn vs Rory MacDonald
Welterweight Bout: Mike Swick vs Matt Brown

Preliminary Card (FX):
Heavyweight Bout: Brendan Schaub vs Lavar Johnson
Lightweight Bout: Ramsey Nijem vs Joe Proctor
Lightweight Bout: Yves Edwards vs Jeremy Stephens

Siver vs. Phan

Preliminary Card (Facebook):
Lightweight Bout: Daniel Cruickshank vs Henry Martinez
Bantamweight Bout: Scott Jorgensen vs John Albert
Lightweight Bout: Tim Means vs Abel Trujillo

Hoping for Penn as he's one of my favourites but Rory is definitely not over-rated. Gustafsson must deserve a title shot if he gets by Shogun.
