    FX prelims 8 ET
    Brad Pickett #4 vs Eddie Wineland #5
    Byron Bloodworth vs Erik Perez
    Melvin Guillard vs Jamie Varner
    Myles Jury vs Michael Johnson

    Facebook prelims 6:30 ET
    Todd Duffee vs Phillip DeFries
    Chris Caraiso #7 vs John Moraga

    It's very rare for me to be interested in every single fight on a preliminary card. Probably the two least important fights are Bloodworth vs Perez and Duffee vs Defries but both feature at least one very good prospect. Both Duffee and Perez seem to have bright futures.

    The rest of the prelims are as good as most Fx/Fuel cards. It's extremely rare you get two FX prelim fights pitting two of the elite fighters in their weight classes. Not only that but both Moraga vs Caraiso and Pickett vs Wineland could be fight of the year contenders. It says a ton about the quality of the preliminary card that Guillard vs Varner is the third most interesting fight and that Jury vs Johnson is just an after thought.

    Really solid prelim card for sure. Pulling for Varner and Wineland.

    156 is gonna have a stacked undercard too. I'm unsure what the actual lineup is but it looks like it's going to be:

    Benavidez #3 v. McCall #2
    Silva v. Hieron
    Tibau v. Dunham
    Rivera v. Figueroa
    Vokmann v. Green

    For 155, Guillard/Varner and Pickett/Wineland are legit PPV main card fights and free TV co-main event fights

    oops didn't notice you said 2012. Sorry!

    I'd assume Benavidez vs McCall or Hieron vs Silva makes the main card.

    I don't see why it should be the most stacked tbh
