    I don't think they have any deals with Showtime or HBO so I would expect it to be a PPV. Yeah, some good fights on here for sure, I'd pay to see this one.

    This is a good card so what's up with ufc's cards lately! Who's their match maker .I think I would be a better candidate than the Kat they have now, plus i'm laid-off right now ,so what's up D. White if you read this I need a job.

    The athletic commission is Corrupt. My Sister blows a guy named James Lewis, whose friends with Joe Smith. Joe Smith has a direct line to God and God said the My brother is always right and doesn’t lie. So Joe Smith gave James Lewis nine dollars. James Lewis in turn gave my Sister half of that money to blow Dana White and convince him to put pressure on the Athletic Commision to cancel this Event. I know this because I was there. It all happened in the octagon that my brother originated.

    I’ll bet none of you knew that. Cantact me at I_am_a_tool@yahoo.com for proof. I’d love to share it with you. Soon I will expose this corruption…..It wont be long….any day now…..Soon…..I’ll be on the news….one of these days…..
