    Although I won't be able to watch, I'm gonna have to go with Evans as well. I've seen him fight before, he can take a licking and still keep ticking. Although he's shorter than Bisping, I'm confident he'll pull off a win.

    Bisbing really suprised me with how well rounded he is, that said I really like Evans. Very unconventional and a good wrestler. Should be a good fight!

    I will be watching it tonight. They have some good fights lined up.

    It should be a good match up with Evans and Bisbing. I am leaning towards Evans for the win however.

    I liked Bisping until his last match in England. He clearly lost the fight, and you could tell he knew he lost the fight from his body language, but for some reason (maybe because they were in England) the judges gave the match to him.

    That's not what turned me though, it was the fact that as soon as they announced him "winner" his attitude changed and he started talking "smack"

    He didn't give the other guy any "props" at all, even though he knew he got his arse handed to him... what a punk.

    I'm hoping there won't be any doubt about who wins tongight.

    I agree with you Celtic.

    Following the bout, his attitude seemed to have changed, perhaps "winning" the bout fostered that, but he should have thrown in some kudo's to his opponent. Bisbing looked like he took a beating.

    Opinions of the fights last night?

    My .02, the fights were overall a let down. I did not see fights that I thought were there. It was more takedowns, takedown defenses and avoiding takedowns but no capitalizing on the mounts.

    Bisbing showed he was difficult to take down and he was able to get up rather easily. Evans did not seem to capitalize on any of his mounts.

    Alexander and Alves....well we found out Alexander apparently does not have a ground game and appears one dimensional (perhaps too early to say one dimensional but he did not appear to be able to do anything from the ground).

    Parisyan vs. Chonan, also boring.

    Fisher was manhandled by Edgars.

    Herman and Doerksen was a good fight.

    Lauzon vs. Rheinhart...Lauzon was quick and on!

    Overall however, I just did not see maximum effort or at least the appearance thereof.

    What a crappy UFC card. The Evans/Bisbing fight should never have been the main event. Another UFC let down.

    True...it would've been boring had it not been centered around a "party." LOL
