    So what prelims are they gonna air?

    Nick Ring, Pearson, Gustafsson and Hunt’s bouts should be aired on the Prelims in my opinion, whats your guys view.

    I don’t get the Siver/Sots fight. Nothing against Siver but there is a 90% chance he gets submitted in this one. He’s got a puncher’s chance at best. I understand the whole International thing but Sots should be fighting a top 5 lightweight, which Siver is not.

    I agree too.

    He should be fighting the winner of Guida/Pettis or Henderson/Bocek or Guillard.

    I am a little confused. Did Siver miss weight? 156.6 pounds is not within the usual “we give you one pound because the scales are not accurate” limit.

    I like how Bisping acts all professional in the pre-views interviews, says he’s more mature than Jorge, and than says he’s gonna F’n kill him at the weigh-in…

    Why bother?? he might as well stay smaller so maybe he has a chance to use his speed to dodge Fitch long enough to KO him.

    You have like an hour or something like that after the weigh-ins to loose the rest if you come in over.

    Infront of 1000′s of fans he was bound to get pumped up and was already pissed off, Jorge was baiting him in the build up to the square-off as well and so Bisping finally let rip. Good on him, I hope he tears his face off tomorrow, Jorge’s recent antics have no place in MMA.

    Yea that and plus the UFC typically does not use digital scales, therefore any less than a pound doesn’t get recorded. So even tho it appears that they did use digital this time, I doubt they are going to penalize the fighters, who were likely not expecting the change.

    I give the edge to G-Sot, but I don’t think Siver is an unworthy opponent.

    Siver has been working very hard on his ground work, and he does have power in his hands and feet. G-Sot is not known for his striking–and Siver has a low center of gravity, so is hard to take down.

    Considering all this, I am looking forward to this fight–and I think G-Sot has his work cut out for him. I don’t see this as an easy win for G-Sot.

    If Bisping pumps up the fight–more people watch–and he probably gets more money.

    If I could get thousands of dollars just because I created a buzz for the fight, I would probably wear a mask at weigh-ins, and curse and throw chairs around.

    precisely, just cos a guy is smaller doesn’t mean he has to be disadvantaged. If he’s smaller and faster then it could be trouble for Fitch after all, with respect to striking, speed = power

    Bisping looked proper angry, I’d like him to win but I’ve got money riding on Jorge cos of his odds and potential to get the KO
