Jobe Watson the Bomber -  We'd be happy with Forrest on the card. that's a start. What about loser of machida v jones to fight shogun down here?

What about hendo shogun 2 in aus? Just some suggestions for you to ponder Dana. But Show the Aussies some love man, show us some love. 110 you had nog/ wandy/ Velasquez/ bader/ Cro cop/ bisping etc.

If you JUST have wand on the card, we are nearly satisfied. Phone Post
You want a big fucking main event? YOU FUCKING GOT IT.

They are definitely not B grade. I probably worded that part wrong. Phone Post

I'm hearing it will be a Fight night on FX possibly.

So expect Kampmann/Alves which is a good fight but it will be Fight night level card.

I mean you guys did get Cain vs Nog and BJ/Fitch as main events, Uk gets Randy/Vera and Munoz/Leben. I'd say you guys have gotten two good cards. So them doing a fight night this time I dont think is a big deal.

I'm sure it will be a solid event.

No no no. I can't accept that. This isn't the UK. This is Australia. We gave you crocodile Dundee, you give us a good UFC 145 card. That's how it works here.

You can cram the card with rookies and gatekeepers but all we ask is for a solid main event and co main event.

I speak for all Australians when I say that unless we get a solid card, then we might just contemplate deciding if we want to explore the possibility that we may or may not decide to potentially discuss the option of perhaps looking into and deciding if we would like to attend such an event. Possibly. Phone Post

It will cost me over $1000 to go to this event. I've been to 110 and 127. So if it's Kamp vs Alves as the main event it's not really worth the effort.

If there's an exciting fighter in there I'll be excited to go. Someone that I can say "I saw ???? fight, live."

I think a lot of mma fans in Australia are in the same or similar boat. Phone Post

lol this thread has some lolz!!!

I've been to both Aussie events, and have flown from Perth to get there (across the country).

Will definitely go again if the main event is worthy headline fighter.

PS: please bring over Shogun (minor homo)

Lorenzo Luciano -
ProteinPower -
Sephiroth - 
ProteinPower - Oh minus Hunt for obvious reasons, replace Hunt with Carwin :)

 you built a card with 2 injured fighters(Cruz, Macdonald), 2 fighters fighting on cards the month before(Hunt and Palhares),  a guy who absolutely hates traveling(Forrest) and a guy under contract to another org(Lombard). All of this on a fight night card? Complete genius.


You do realise 145 is in March? Maybe you should stick to playing Final Fantasy Sephiroth.

Cruz & Rory are expected to be ok by Feb, HUNT as i said replace with a hopefully a healed Carwin, Paul Harris is fighting is fighting in Jan (then comes Feb & then MARCH), Forrest will do what hes told by BLAF & Lombard is pretty much wishful thinking and would be a huge draw for the Australian fans.

I'd like to see how your main card.
Nobody in Australia knows who Lombard is. Phone Post
They don't need to. If you just say "He's an Australian and former champion of another promotion who is entering the UFC aiming for the title" the fans will cheer. Phone Post

Jobe Watson the Bomber - As an Aussie I can't tell you how pleased I was to hear you will return down here for 145.

110 was a great card. 127 was good too.

BUT please don't turn this card into a B squad event. No offense to Kampmann v alves (which I'm hearing may not even be at 145) or Browne v Nelson but can we please get a tasty main event.
I look at the recent uk cards and while they are great, I have no interest in perosh v nobody or Sot v fringe top 20 fighter. I'm talking tasty Dana. Tasty.

Just keep that in mind. I know it will sell out regardles but C'MON DUDE, lets get serious.
Don't UK us Dana. Don't UK us........ Phone Post

Really devo that Carwin was even hypothetically mentioned because I know it won't happen and I'm hanging onto a glimmer of hope! That'd be FUCKING EPIC! #Carwinning Phone Post

I won’t be laying any cash down for tickets, flights & hotels to attend a non ppv event. I imagine UFC on FOX (FX, FUEL or whatever) would be an incredibly drawn out event for the people in attendances. The main card would be catering for the TV audience and advertisements at the expense of those in the crowd. If you saw the first UFC on Fox and followed it from the start (on Facebook) to the finish (on OneHD) there seemed to be considerable gaps in time between fights and from memory there was at least 30 minutes between Guida vs Henderson (live) and JDS vs Cain. Also, this is additional to the fact I believe the card will be severely water down in talent and star power.

In saying this, if the co-mainevent is Bisping vs Anyone Who Can Knock His Block Off I'm there.
