Not a bad card for a TUF finale. Bisping/Kennedy, Poirier/Corassani, and Noons/Stout could all be good fights. Kaufman isn't bad either.

Westcott looked like a beast on the show. Olivier looked like he had some talent too. Laprise shattered a guys jaw FWIW.

Boy I hope kennedy wins. Bisping acts like the champ while losing big matches. I also bet if kennedy loses he gets cut. A loss will mean hes not top of division and more importantly hes expensive. Kennedy makes something like 85+10 from his strikeforce contract.

I'd be shocked if they cut Kennedy. It's not like Kennedy is some deadly boring fighter like Fitch or Shields. I'm sure he'll have a longer leash than one loss

This was posted recently. Michael Bisping has one win over an active UFC fighter, which is WW Dan Miller. Alan Belcher is not included though he hasn't retired or been cut. He's taking a break. With that said, Bisping's TDD + volume kickboxing should be enough.

Kyle Noke hasn't fought in 2 years. Patrick Cote isn't that good, but should be able to get the victory.

Poirier eats up Akira. Fight to stay basically.

Stout has looked awful since Edwards and Noons hasn't looked good in years. I'm a fan of both though

I enjoyed TUF Nations and am looking forward to those four guys fighting, all good fighters. There wasn't any real rivalry between Cote and Noke... a little different from Wanderlei & Sonnen. Lol.

The 2 WW finalists are legit prospects and we're prior to tuf. Chad is a LW however, same goes for cajun who is a ufc level fighter, imo. Olivier is a beasts.

Nordine was also very highly touted and has already been invited to the next show, I assume if he beats vik that's over. He broke his foot in his fight against a tuff racist guy, had to effect the outcome.

Elias, one of the mw fighters has done his time in Ontario and Quebec and has been very successful. On the show he just grinded everyone out with his gas tank. He isn't bad as far as striking goes, hopefully he opens up now that the tournament is over.

I know very little about Sheldon but he was a killer on the show.


Good card overall, some exciting fights. I wish bocek and gagnon weren't buried on the prelims but mitch will prob tap dude and make the broadcast.

A lot of guys picking Theodorou over Westcott. I dont get that at all. Elias striking is likely the worst on the entire show and if Westcott gets ahold of you its all over. He is an ANIMAL on the ground. Very, very strong dude. And that was when he had a couple of significant injuries.

Theodorou didn't look good on the show at all. Lying on Australians who can't wrestle doesn't impress me. Maybe he grinds out a win here but I'm with you, Westcott has a great chance.

He actually spent his camp in Thailand training with Swick, Cote, etc.
