I would have no problem with us not counting this in the pick-em standings.

I haven't heard Delson Heleno's name in a while, always liked him in the IFL.

Hey End of the Line, can you also start a poll to decide whether this event even deserves its own thread?

Is this fight for the Franklinweight #1 contendership? I believe Vitor currently holds the belt with a successful defense against Rumble.

Seems that way, although since Vitor is hurt let's just make it for the Franklinweight interim championship.

Doesn't seem right that Rich gets an immediate title shot coming off a loss. Would have preferred Travis Lutter/Wanderlei for the interim.

What a terrible card, i can't believe they are going to charge people for this event.

You wonder why UFC is nowhere near as popular as it was even two years ago? Look at this lame excuse of a card.

I think there's like one or two posts in this entire thread that are actually discussing the fights. That's a pretty bad indictment of this card.

I'm only going to comment on the top two fights, but here goes.

I think this is a dreadful matchup for Russow. His main strength is being able to grind away from top position and use his size. Werdum is possibly the worst guy in the division to try this technique against. I also think Werdum will be able to tag him repeatedly standing. I've got Werdum winning the stand-up, Russow panicking and going for takedowns, and Werdum locking in a sub during a weak takedown/scramble attempt by Russow. I also think Russow will be given a tough next fight, maybe even against Carwin, because the UFC has no interest in a fat, boring, HW.

As for the main event, I actually think this will end up being a great fight. Both guys will get dropped once or twice, get back up, and keep scrapping. It will be one of those fights that has the crowd and Rogan/Goldberg going crazy. I don't think we will see a finish but it wouldn't surprise me to see either guy gas in the 3rd or 4th rounds and get caught and not be able to get up underneath a flurry of punches. This will be one of those "Fight of the Year" potential bouts and will cap a card that will have fans excited for about 4 or 5 random Brazilians they haven't heard of.

I see it going down like this as well, or at least I hope. They only thing that could ruin it is Wandy's now suspect chin.

Franklin's chin in this fight should be equally concerning. Its not as bad as Silva's, but Silva also still hits a lot harder so its fairly even.
