Welterweight bout: Yoshihiro Akiyama vs. Jake Shields
Middleweight bout: Yushin Okami vs. Tim Boetsch
Featherweight bout: Hatsu Hioki vs. Bart Palaszewski - If this was in USA I'd pick Bart but I think Hioki will fired up to fight in his home country.
Lightweight bout: Anthony Pettis vs. Joe Lauzon

Preliminary card (FX):
Lightweight bout: Takanori Gomi vs. Eiji Mitsuoka
Bantamweight bout: Norifumi Yamamoto vs. Vaughan Lee
Middleweight bout: Riki Fukuda vs. Steve Cantwell - how is Cantwell still in UFC?
Bantamweight bout: Takeya Mizugaki vs. Chris Cariaso

Preliminary card: (Facebook)
Featherweight bout: Zhang Tiequan vs. Issei Tamura

I'm banking on most of the Japanese fighters to win like most of the Brazilians did at 142.

I've been looking forward to this since it was put together. The combination of this cards' depth & returning to Japan is just awesome.

I believe that's what time the prelims starts.

In this case, the smart thing for the UFC to do would be to show this on tape delay on FX.

This was in yesterdays USA today online:

Quote:
But for its first show in Japan since December 2000, UFC will stick to its normal pay-per-view start time of 10 p.m. ET Saturday to accomodate American TV viewers. Preliminary cards can start three hours before the pay-per-view, but with Saitama 10 hours ahead of the U.S. East Coast, that would mean a local start at 9 a.m. in Japan.

So excited for the main event... I don't know who to pick yet. Edgar and Henderson are both amazing. I always pick against Edgar... I should probably stop. I still can't believe Edgar survived Maynard twice like he did. Henderson is different in different ways though. Should be a great fight.

Yes!!! Cantwell is back fighting. Glad he got over that medical scare.

Edit: Oh dang, he fought in Oct and I missed it.

Still, nothing beats this:

Agreed, great depth.

I love the depth at UFC 145, too, lots of exciting fights although no real co-main. Could be shaping up for a good Spring of PPV cards.

He hasn't won a fight since then. There's no way this bum should be in the UFC. He's lost 4 in a row with the last two against Diabete and Massenzio two guys who also shouldn't be in the UFC.

Completely agree with those saying this is the deepest card in a long time. Should be a great event. Six hours of MMA straight, I can't wait.

I don't pick cards because I suck at it, but I find it funny that so far the only person who agrees with me that Ben will win is a fellow Columbus poster, haha.

I haven't made my picks yet, but as of now I'm going with Ben. I think he's got a great shot.

The main event is a coin flip. It's hard to gauge Edgar when he's only fought 2 guys in the last 2 years. For some reason this matchup reminds me of Pettis/Henderson and that's why i'm taking Edgar.

I can't see Edgar losing. I think Henderson is a great fighter but what Edgar did against Maynard, in both fights, was just incredible. Both times he should have been finished but he stayed in it and fought back to take one to a draw and then obviously knocked Gray out the 3rd fight. Edgar is a pretty complete fighter with a good chin and has proved that size doesn't matter. But if he does lose, I wouldn't mind seeing him vs Aldo.
