  1. I emailed the site saying they should allow comments on events and the next day they have it, very cool…This should be a great card, moste likely best of the year…can't even decide who is gonna win between Silva and Hendo

  2. Morey

    Regardless of who wins it should be a great fight. My money is on Silva right now because I think he is full of weapons and in his prime. This is so stacked I can't believe Diego Sanchez and Arlovski are on the undercard, I hope we get to see them. I would even like to see Leben vs. Sakara because I don't think that fight is going the distance.

  3. roy

    dan vs anderson is awsome i real don't care about picking a winner i just want to see a great fight my heart says dan but my mind says don't bet on this one.if silva does win i don't think theres a person out there that can beat him not gsp either.there is alot of good match ups on this card also i just hope we get to see most of the undercards too.

  4. Kash

    I don't like Herring too much but I'm going to him because Kongo is running his mouth about CroCop leaving the UFC. He said Crocop can't compete without steroids and thats why he left to K1.

    I can't wait to see Silva/Henderson, I hope it's the fight of the night.

  5. kom34

    i read that on Sherdog too. kongo said crocop needs his "juices." on top of that kongo said that his knees to the groin of crocop were legal.

    what i dont get is how brock automatically gets one point deducted for hitting the back of the head. kongo nut shots mirko twice and gets a warning.

  6. Realwun

    Right now Kongo doesn't do well against good wrestlers. He has great knees and a strong clinch but his strikes aren't that powerful, thats where Herring has the advantage. I think if Herring shows up to this fight prepared and in shape he takes this fight.

  7. kom34

    this is what crocop answered kongo with…

    "I have a message for Kongo. Listen, I though that you are a sportsman, a professional like everyone else in this sport. You were lucky enough to fight against me during the deepest crisis of my career. You probably ate a lot of vegetables and potatoes to look like that? I'll be back in the cage and I hope you will be in the opposite corner. Then we'll see for how long you'll be able to talk."

    hell yeah crocop.

  8. Kongo is overated by so much, hes a diverse striker with alright leg kicks and punches but other than that i really believe he just an average fighter…definitly shouldn’t be ranked

  9. shogun5811

    is there any site exsisting, or place we could go to watch the unaired undercard fights? becuz honestly i want to see every fight on this card, main & undarcard

  10. Kash

    I would really like to see that fight too but I don't think it will be a quick finish. Thats what I think will make the PPV…a fight with a quick finish.

  11. tca333

    I ordered UFC 82 on Demand last night and was really disappointed that the Arlovski fight was "unaired"! I already paid for UFC 82 and don't want to or think I should have to pay again to see the "unaired" fights! How do I see the unaired fights without having to pay again?

  12. I also ordered UFC 82 on Demand. Where the @&$&*%( is the dang Arlovski fight????!?!?!?!?!

    I cant find it. I am outraged they did not show it after the fight. I also wanted to see the Luke Cummo fight.

  13. Kash

    I watched the Arlovski fight on this site because they didn't air it in the PPV and I knew they wouldn't. They didn't even give Arlovski a post fight interview because they didn't want him to get the airtime or put a word out about his sponsors.

  14. STEVEO

    I think Dana has all but had Arlovski pack his bags and head on down the road to one of the wanna bes which is sad because in my opinion the heavyweight division is by far the weakest right now they need some guys that can test the up and comers. And I would like to see A. Silva jump up and fight rampage because regarless of weight I think that Silva can beat him, even so it would not take much for silva to bulk up, way easier for him to do that than to go down and try and fight gsp after he ends matt serra
