Pretty excited for this card. I'd honestly love to see Silva lose just for the entertainment factor afterwards. And I think Weidman COULD maybe do it.

Really looking forward to this card. The main event should be great and there's a bunch of other good fights as well. They did a good job of putting this one together.

For the people in Canada, keep in mind that starting this week all UFC content is now moving to Sportsnet 360 (The Score). So the prelims will be there. No more wondering which Sportsnet channel will show the fights, it'll all be in one place.

Sick of Weidman hype. Hope Silva comes out not playing games and TKO's right away.

Looking forward to this card, lots of interesting fights and of course the main event should be exciting either way. Weidman has the BJJ and finishing power that Chael lacks, but does he have the stamina and ability to take Silva down repeatedly?

Always enjoy Gonzaga and Leben fights. Leben looks like just a dude you'd see at a bar, and Gonzaga is the generic big guy in any group if friends ... except that Leben could KO anyone in the bar with one punch and Gonzaga could just grab a hold of you and start tearing off limbs whenever he felt like it.

Oh, and Anderson's fighting. I think Weidman's wrestling is comparable to Chael's ... this could be the one.

Been waiting for this for what seems like forever.

Hopefully Silva finally topples over.

Weidman has the best chance out of anyone Silva has faced yet in the ufc.

Same here.

The worst part about this Weidman hype is that it takes away from how awesome this card is going to be on Saturday. Main card should have 5 great fights. Undercard has some entertaining guys... and the UFC is pushing the guy that's going to get embarrassed.

Let's be real - who HASN'T Anderson embarrassed since joining the UFC? Hell even some of his performances embarrassed himself (dancing around the cage) and he still won.

At some point, I hope Weidman truly makes people believe he can win the fight.

Wish I agreed about the main card. It's quite weak IMO. Weidman is the toughest stylistic test (arguably) of Anderson's career. Doesn't mean he'll win, but the hype is legit. We all saw what Chael did to Anderson. This is a guy who has the wrestling who also can finish. This is Anderson's toughest opponent aside from Jones.

Looking forward to the Silva fight. Pretty confident Silva will win but there is a small chance he will lose.

Weidman is a better technical wrestler than Chael. Minus that tenacious double leg.

Really looking f forward to the card, but mostly the main event. I think it may be too early for Weidman, but he'll at least put Anderson in a fight for a change.

Similar situation to gsp/hughes for me, Silva wins but Weidman will beat him down the road.
