    *****************************************

    Please note that this bout order is not official, just one I put up for the sake of the thread. With that being said, what do you guys think of the UFC Fight Night 85 card live from Brisbane, Australia? I like the main card. The top 3 fights all look like they can end in some exciting finishes and although the rest of the card doesn't hold much name value there are some matchups that should produce some fireworks like Nguyen/Scoggins, Te Huna/Bosse and Jouban/O'Reilly. If I had to give it a rating I'd give this one a 7/10 on the FS1 scale. What do you guys think of this card?

    I'd give it a 7 just because I'm a big fan of Mir and Hunt. Lombard vs Magny is fantastic and the rest of the card is also pretty damn solid.

    Just seen we have viewing this thread section back - hoorah.

    Oh wow. I thought Lombard vs Magny was going to be an ME for a different card. Awesome. Lol...& they got Rin a fight, aye...? Rest looks real solid enough for me.

    7/10.

    So many exciting matchups. No HUGE fights, but it's got enough to earn a 7/10.

    I was wondering the same..I definitely remember her getting announced for this card.
    Did UFC just replace her with Rin and think we wouldn't notice?

    Pretty weak card, but they can't all be great. A lot of good cards coming up
