 he'll likely fight the Bendo vs Guida winner. I think this is the likely headliner with Rampage vs Forrest/????? as co main event.

Wow, I didn't think they'd take a title fight to Japan. Does this mean they won't be doing 2 events on the same night now, or was that (hopefully) squashed already? If the LW title is on the line, it's an easy choice what to watch.

Really? Edgar/Bendo/Clay and Rampage/Forrest for a return to japan?

If shogun loses to hendo, he needs to fight rampage in japan. The japanese fans would love that

mdh2k10 -  guida might be the first guy to make the japanese fans boo


Dana - "here it is Japan, American mma at its best"


***guida lays on frankie for 5 rounds***
  

 the chances of Guida outwrestling Edgar are 1 in 5 million. Won't matter because there is no way in hell he beats Bendo anyways.

I hope Bendo wins, because I would much rather see Edgar fight him, instead of Guida... Edgar would tool Guida on the feet with his quick foootwork boxing. Phone Post

Why is there so much hate for Guida on here? The guy has been in some of the most exciting fights in ufc history and has finished 3 of his last 4 fights. I think against Pettis it was simple. Guida was able to take him down but Pettis was good enough at jiu jitsu to defend himself but couldnt quite submit Guida. and now hes been pegged as a lay n prayer in every fight hes been in.

It's funny most casual fans love guida it's only on the ug where he gets shit on. The guy has been apart of like 3 fights of the year. And finished 3 of his last 4. Fickle fans at their finest. Phone Post

 right it has nothing to do with him having fall asleep type performances against Petts, Diaz and Danzig. It's funny how you call other fans fickle yet have decided Guida is an exciting fighter and finisher based on 3 fights. Especially when in his first ten fights in the Ufc he finished 2 opponents. If they are fickle you have an extremely short memory.

Guida is only in exciting fights if his opponent can fend off his takedowns. If not he is perfectly fine with laying in the guard throwing 2 inch punches and shoulders to the chest.

 doubt it will do any worse than either of his other ppvs did. Plus I doubt they even care. International cards never bring in big ppvs buys. Even a stacked card like ufc 134  or Ufc 110 did crap buys.

By the way you know your lame when they announce a kick ass fight like Edgar vs Bendo/Gil/Guida and all you can talk about is how bad it will do in buys.

You got to love mma hardcore fans. They shit on casual fans left and right but then blast the Ufc when those same casual fans don't buy up good cards. I've never seen a bunch of whinier pussies than anti Zuffa tards.

This. Plus if he did get past Bendo, Frankie KOs him inside of 3.

Aoki has nothing for a wrestler/boxer like Frankie except endless buttflops and guard pull attempts.
