    Brandon, Shogun is fighting Chuck Liddell in May or June.

    “Possibly Mauricia “Shogun” Hua. That’s what they’re saying. If it’s the June fight, it will probably be in London. But my trainer is trying to get it moved to Vegas. Too far. (Liddell is based in San Luis Obispo, Calif.)”

    Shogun confirmed the fight in June on the Brazilian Newspaper Tatame.

    this is a pretty good card even without shogun

    gsp,serra,bisping,franklin,lutter,herman,danzig,cote,and mcdonald are all big names

    …Dane I can honestly say i'm not really excited for any of the fights except GSP/Serra obviously, Nate Quarry/ Starnes..and maybe Bisping, i cant tell if I care enough about his move to middle weight or not

    i would say gsp and franklin are big names maybe serra but the rest are tuf fighters if that makes you a big name then i guess so. i think franklin is pretty good but every card that he headlined kinda sucked.

    Franklin is overated and boring and i don't like him as a fghter in the slightest…thats why just in my opinion hes not a "big name"

    you can say u dont like franklin but u have to admit that he is a big name. a big name isnt always about who you have beaten its how well known u are. brok has won one fight and he is allready a big name. lokking at this card again i do admit it is mostly TUFers… sept mcdonald he became known for beating TUFers. im still stoked to see franklin vs lutter tho since lutter was the closest to beat silva and franklins underrated in my oppinion. the onle people he has lost to is anderson and the undefeated 205 pound lyotot machida. he has a very good record of 24-3

    I think this is an OK card… there are a lot of middleweights fighting… I for one would have preffered to see Bisping's first fight at MW be against one of the other guys fighting on the same Card…

    Nate Quarry

    Ed Herman

    Patrick Cote

    Jason McDonald

    Kalib Starnes

    Or maybe even Franklin!!

    I'd love to watch Franklin destroy Bisping.

    Joe… I think we've debated this one before!

    You're probably right, but I think Bisping vs Quarry/Cote/Herman would have been miles better than McCarthy

    Joe:

    some aren't impressed with the card (I'm impressed with the fighters) – just saying that they aren't the most famous ones – although:

    to which I'd say yes they are all fairly well known – at least in USA
