    ... I really wish Stipe and Big Ben were the main event. I'm anticipating a really good tilt there and would like to see it go into the fourth and fifth rounds. It's not like the Irish people wouldn't show up if Duffy and Poirier were the co-main event. Bigger title ramifications in the HW fight.

    Still, good event for a Dublin card.

    Couldn't agree more with you TS, but that's not how business works. The championship? Fuck it.

    Absolutely. Not complaining about the card at all, just very interested in HW picture right now. 155 is kinda mapped out.

    Do I wish it was the main event? No. Reason- they're heavyweights and 3 round fights for them are better than 5 round fights (generally)... I think the smaller guys can always do with the added time, heavyweights not so much

    It's what manlets say when skinny guys are more marketable than heavier ones.

    Stipe/Hunt, Hunt/Bigfoot fights were pretty entertaining. I would expect the same type of fight here. Stipe has cardio for days and Ben is extremely tough and seasoned.

    Title implications don't matter if Cain and Werdum have to do a trilogy

    Why? Neither Ben or Stipe have fought Cain or Werdum have they?

    Edit: never mind I gotcha now. Cain won't win tho

    I hate it when HW fights go for 5 rounds. Duffy vs. Poirier deserves to go 5 rounds, I don't care what the rankings say.

    Rothwell lost to Cain already. Not that it matters

    Most HWs struggle to go 3 rounds. Why would you want to have them go 5? Besides, my actual point, is that most HW fights don't last even 3 rounds, so I would rather see two other fighters have that opportunity.
