    The Fight of the Year race is expected to get an early entrant on Saturday, February 14, as the strikers' battle between Colorado's own Brandon "Rukus" Thatch and Stephen "Wonderboy" Thompson now has two extra rounds, with the UFC announcing Tuesday that the bout has been moved into the five-round UFC Fight Night main event slot in Broomfield.

    The bout replaces the original main event between Matt Brown and Tarec Saffiedine, which was scrapped when a suitable replacement opponent could not be found for the injured Saffiedine.

    "The Immortal" Brown won't be without a fight for long though, as the Ohio standout will now face off with former UFC welterweight champion Johny "Bigg Rigg" Hendricks at UFC 185 in Dallas, Texas on March 14.

    I tweeted the poll we had on here at Dana yesterday when he said something about Lawler/Hendricks III being a great fight.. maybe he actually looked at it and realised how against it everyone was. What I'm getting at is that it was definitely my doing and everyone should thank me =p

    I'm really glad that trilogy was scrapped and this match up between Brown and Big Rigg is sure to be a good one!

    Either that or Hendricks didn't want to take a load of time off like he did last time.

    So Lawler vs. Rory 2 now then, winner of Brown/Hendricks faces winner of Woodley/Kelvin for next shot? Or is the Rory/Lombard fight still on? Makes no sense if so.
