I find it sad that Davis goes from #1 contender fight, a fight that was the headline fight on a Fox card, to not even being on the main card for one.

Also, you're missing a fight between Ian McCall and John Moraga that's the only Facebook prelim. Even more sad that McCall goes from main eventing a title fight to being a Facebook prelim. Not even on Fuel TV.

As would I, but it won't.

I'm hoping it'll be like Shogun's fights with Ubereem.

Really like this card. Too bad McCall and Mitrione are both scratched but its still great for a free card. Better than 147 or 149.

This is a damn good card. Every fight on the main card is intriguing and the prelims are solid too.

Browne v. Rothwell should be a good fight.

Would like to see the winner fight Big Foot Silva. After the dust settles one of those guys should be ready to take on a contender like Werdum.

anyway been wanting to see Browne and Rothwell for some time.

Ian McCall out of UFC on FOX 4 fight vs. John Moraga with LCL sprain

Ian McCall vs. John Moraga was recently added to UFC on FOX 4, which takes place Aug. 4 at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

However, McCall came on The Underground, and said that he had already withdrawn from the fight.

Brandon Vera is not a can.

Underachiever? That's another story.

This, anyone who thinks he is a "can" is out to lunch. He hasn't exactly been tearing it up but losing to jones, Randy (bs decision) & a juiced up silva doesn't make you a can.

Maybe Shogun brings the best out of him similar to the fight with captain America.

The fight makes little sense but stylistically it's an exciting matchup.

Vera will be a fun match up. Both guys have excellent stand up. I'd actually be interested in Cain vs Andrei lol two big guys with no head movement and bad striking defense.

That fight with Randy really pissed me off. Congo's fight last week reminded me of it. Would've loved to have seen Vera tag him for a KO. Either way I think Vera should've won it as well.

Still a good card.... Pretty good names. And Varner vs. Lauzon should be action packed.

Sucks losing Rothwell. He's not very exciting but I want to see Browne tested against a relevant HW, and Devin Cole isn't that.

Looking forward to both of the top two fights, and Phil Davis and Swick back in there.

Still a good card. Dana White said if Shogun whoops that ass he will be the number one contender. Which doesn't make sense to me.

Yeah, but who else is there? Unless they bring in Feijao or something... Gustafsson isn't quite there yet. Gegard or Lawal could also be viable contender options if they get a UFC win against a reputable opponent first (Lawal/Jackson and Mousasi/Machida please).
