    there is a huge discrepancy between Rashads paycheck and the rest of the fighters paychecks. I guess its the fighter's name that gets paid the most. even Tito ortiz's washed up ass gets paid 250K and Cry baby Forrest also gets 200K. Just Perplexing

    I dont really care that title fights are on hold till March. There is some huge names and great talent on the 2 PPV cards and a pretty decent Fight Night card.

    Couture, Coleman, Marquardt, Swick, Serra, Trigg, Wand, Bisping, Big Nog, Velasquez, Cro Cop, Rothwell, Jardine, Maia, Maynard, Diaz, Sadollah, Bader, Stevenson.

    Sounds like a great start to 2010 to me.

    And where else are you going to see this much high profile talent in the first 3 months of this year?

    Im no UFC 'nuthugger' but, the amount of top level guys in competetive match-ups far surpasses anything available to us in both MMA and Boxing (although i am looking forward to Nick Diaz vs. Marius Zaromskis).

    Randy Couture is such a legend, i dont care who he is fighting or what he is doing, i will pay to watch it. Even if his divorce was shown on PPV live from the courthouse, i would watch that!!
