    WOW!!! wat a crappy card! youd think that they wud put sum better fights on for the troops. i mean i know its free, but come on, this is a joke. I get to see the most boring, pussy ass fighter n the ufc(josh koscheck) lay on sum dude for 15 minutes. wow. sounds fun. and all the other fights would never b on a PPV fight card. this is a joke. this is probably the worst card ever put together, the troops deserve better.

    The only good thing I've seen Corey Hill use is his reach. I think its a good card to be free. I wouldn't pay any more than $1 for it.

    Come on, guys! This is a star-studded cavilcade of crafty UFC veterans. I counted 5 former Ultimate Fighter contestants and that's good TV. We should all thank the UFC for bringing these soon-to-be classic bouts into our lives. It's free but you will get twice that amount of entertainment!

    Like Just another mma dude said.. IT's FREEEEEE , if you're not happy with that just don't watch the event… first of all, it's not a PPV so keep you're 45$ in your pocket. They are not oblige to put that on TV… The fight night is to put the guys who can't fight on ppv … look Nate diaz never fight at PPV and poeple like jon fitch fight mabe 4-5 fight on Fight night and now look where there are… I'm sick of people who are not satisfied with nothing … damn it's free and it's UFC !!! Last week I paid 20$ to see a little promotion live in a bar ….

    yeah, he hasn't just laid on an opponent in quite some time. I'm not a big fan of his, but he has evolved into a damn good fighter.

    just another mma dude- ur an idiot. u cant call any of these fighters 'crafty ufc veterans'. wen i hear 'crafty ufc veterans' i think of matt hughes, evan tanner, jeremy horn, chris lytle, or randy couture. not fuckin matt wiman, corey hill, koscheck, steve cantwell, frankie edgar, tim credeur, mike swick, goulet, etc. your a fuckin joke kid. change ur name 2 'just another mma dumbass' and kos is boring. 5 of his last 6 fights went to the judges cuz every chance he gets he shoots for the takedown. ur a retard 'dane drebin'
