Liddell v Ortiz? Do we really need to see LIDL decimate Ortiz again? Silva v Akiyama should be a fun fight as will the Bonnar one. Dont really care for the Lesnar fight to be honest. Only gonna watch it to hopefully see Lesnar lose

That was after rumours of Ortiz pulling out during filming of TUF but it's been denied by Ortiz and Dana White. DW even said that he was working on Franklin vs Randy Couture for 115.

why the hate for Lesnar,
I think the Chuck v Ortiz fight should be on a fight night, there both never going to be contenders again, but i can see why there is hype,

Are the UFC stuck for scraps with the repeats and repeat of a repeat of Liddel and ortiz.
I didnt think bonner vs sosyynski was that good of a match initially to warrant a rematch

It was the way in which it ended that warrants the rematch

Well if he only destroys 10% of him Ortiz has a good chance of winning.

I hope it turns out better than that. This is supposed to be their marquee event.

I suspect another big fight here.

Title fights in LW, WW and MW are possible given the timescale.

Hope so. An Anderson 205 bout with a game opponent would really beef up that card.

Maybe throw fitch alves or fitch kos on it too.

I dont know whether you are rolling your eyes at the thought of this fight or at the above poster. It's hard to tell.

Bonnar deserves a rematch. If a fight goes into the third round and is stopped by a headbutt/groin shot etc, the ref should go to the judges. If he done this it would have been a draw. He didn't and Bonnar lost by TKO, the ref got it completely wrong.
