Decent card.

Little surprised to see Guida went from main card of a PPV to prelims of a fight night card.

Even Nate Diaz lost two in a row and was still main-eventing.

Big boys' night. 2 LHW & 2 HW fights for the main card. All look exciting!

UM???
Of all of those fights on the undercard they've decided we need to see those two? C'mon.

Marshall vs. the Janitor seems like the logical place to go instead. At least let us see guys who are a still a factor in the division or might have a future.

da Vinci 81 - Decent card.

They like to put guys who are high probabilities of a decision on the undercard. Smart managerial move and even smarter programming plan.

I suppose.

Seems odd though considering how much the UFC praises Guida for his relentless style and how his fights are always exciting.

I am a fan of neither guy but I am interested in this fight. Neither guy has a good chin and both have a ton of power. As long as no one falls out of the cage and can't continue me thinks someone is getting brutally KTFO!

 Why isn't Dos Santos vs Gonzaga headlining? Vera hasn't done shit and Jones has zero big wins and is coming off a DQ loss. Neither Vera nor Jones are anywhere near a title shot in a division with Rogerio, Rampage, Rashad, Forrest, Randy, occasionally Anderson, etc.

The only way Guida has an exciting fight is if his opponent makes it that way.

I'm happy to see "the napsack" on the prelims personally. I wouldn't mind if he was fighting someone who would bring it but I don't believe this will be the case.

I would much rather see the Guida fight. His entrances alone are very exciting him jumping around singing to some emo band that 75% of the people there have never heard of. How do you not love that Neanderthal?

This fight should not be on ANY televised Zuffa card.

6 days later Drwal/Palhares is going untelevised and both would rip these two apart.

Are one of these prelims a swing fight? Is this event only 2 hours? If so, why? Does versus have anything better to do?

they should keep that on the under card because it will be one of 2 things:

a) a quick ko they can replay between main card fights

or

b) a drawn out, tentative, boring fight that noone wants to watch.

 You guys must be friends or something. He's going to see the real Sakara--The Best Hand in MMA, Sakara.

Sakara will be playing Jack and Irvin will be playing to role of Vicky in UFC on VS Raging Bull

We´re talking about the same Sakara here, right? The one that got knocked out by Chris Leben and Houston Alexander...
