RobinHood - This London card feels ill conceived. Like a last minute thought. It's so strange that not even one fight has been confirmed.

I would be happy with Pickett v Wineland to headline.

I know UFC will come good and we should trust Dana. But still I need some names to get excited.

PS. Notts wasn't half empty. There were lots of patches of empty floor seats. Phone Post
They've had this february16th date booked since Jones vs Sonnen was announced which was at the start of November, shouldn't have taken this long to announce at least the headline fight. Phone Post

Let's have a guess who will be on the London card....
One American that's willing to travel who is not on TRT. Pat Barry.

Representing the uk:
Ross Pearson.
Bisping.
Pickett.
Tom kong. (Outside bet for Alex Reid rematch)
Kelly.
Taylor.
McGuire.
The freakshow and the smashes uk crew.

Versus.

Scandinavian prospects, a German read: siver, a Croat, an Italian maybe sakara, balance made up by brasillians. Phone Post

No chance of Bisping fighting on the card, too high profile for it and he is fighting Belfort.

The only 2 rumours I have heard so far are Che Mills vs Matt Riddle and Andy Ogle vs Josh Grispi (I think).

My guess is that we will see a lot of the UK TUF smashes guys. Which is why we are having to wait for the fights to be announced, as the season needs to finish first. Phone Post

Barry, Bisping Pearson, Pickett, Freakshow and Siver are all fighting in the next six weeks, so you can pretty much rule them out.

Disagree that it wasn't half empty. There're we're loads of mid priced seats near me, I'm talking rows, empty and on the opposite side it was even worse. Phone Post

Sorry for the double but on my phone. Notts attendance was 7K, holds over 10k. That's a pretty poor attendance imo and price has a lot to do with it. All the lowest level had sold out, I bought my ticket the day before the event and there were tickets available at all other levels. Phone Post

This will hopefully be my first event I go to since UFC 89 up in Brum.

I won't be able to buy tickets for a good month or so, though. Will all decent seats be snapped up by then?

Sat up in the nose-bleeders last time around and I don't fancy that again.

My mate got me a ticket for this. Should be fun. Hopefully posterboy gets a good fight and either condit or koscheck end up on the card, would make for a decent night.

I really hope UFC signs Tom "Stoneface" Niinimäki now and puts him on this card.
If Jason Young hasn't been released yet, put him against Niinimäki

I believe he has been released.

Posterboy vs. Diabate.

Personally i found UCMMA at the Troxy more enjoyable than UFC at the o2.

If anyone is looking for dirt cheap hotels, try the easyhotels. You wont find cheaper anywhere in London, I stay in them when im in London. The one at the Barbican/Old Street would be the easiest as theres no need to change tubes.

So what you mean to say is you prefer watching one decent fighter vs an opponent who has no business in there with them and a selection of fat and roided up chavs?

Right..

cheap hotels for london are:

Ibis
Etap
Travelodge (there's a couple right near the wembley arena)
Premier Inn


Manuwa vs Diabate is likely

Condit and Koscheck are NOT fighting each other, one or the other is on the card. My guess is vs. Hathaway because I hear he's lined up for London too
