    You can't tell me that these cards don't look stacked from top to bottom, I know there were alotta injuries in 2012, but regardless of the injuries, the cards felt so watered down. I'm glad the UFC is stepping it up this year w/ the cards they have planned in the up coming months.

    2012 did have some great match ups, regardless of injuries. But a lot of the injury-related failed match ups did leave a bad taste in my mouth. Nature of the beast I guess.

    If there a minimal amount of injuries, this year will be fucking great for MMA.

    I think many cards were praised as much last year and then they changed.

    The events last year looked great to. Until they were destroyed by injuries.

    The tentative UFC on FUEL in Japan is definitely PPV caliber.

    Yeah there were alotta cards that got derailed in terms of appeal due to injuries.
    But alotta those FX & Fuel cards aren't nearly as stacked as the up & coming cards that are set to take place soon.

    Dollaway in the co main and a womens main event are both a joke

    Idk man, you have the 1st ever UFC Women's Bantamweight championship which doesn't sound appealing, but it's a big change in the MMA culture seeing as how UFC is highly touted as the best MMA org. out there.

    You got Henderson vs. Machida for what's most likely a title-shot eliminator.
    Urijah Faber returning against Ivan Menjivar who most people probably don't know, is a rematch of a fight they had 7 years ago.
    Koscheck vs. Lawler has potential to be fun.
    Lavar Johnson vs. Brendan Schaub has to be appealing in terms of possibly seeing Schaub getting KO'd again & giving Lavar another HL Reel.
    Chad Mendes is currently riding a 2 fight winning streak & is fighting heavy handed Gamburyan.
    Dennis Bermudez is a resurgent fighter who's looked nothing short of spectacular as of recently.
    & even though not too fascinating. TUF Winner Chiesa returns to fight again on this card.

    This card is pretty appealing to me, but everybody has their own opinions & I respect that!

    Henderson vs. Machida will be fun to watch go to a decision, Henderson is always plodding forward. You never know though, Machida could get cracked w/ an H-Bomb or Machida's counter attack could KO Dan Henderson for the first time. Look what he did to Bader.
    I could see Urijah Faber getting a signature Alpha Male Guillotine.
    Mendes or Gamburyan have potential to KO one another.
    Koscheck might grind a win against Lawler, but that hasn't really been his appeal lately, he tends to favor his overhand right. If it does go the ground I could see Koscheck getting a submission though.
    Lavar vs. Schaub has finish written all over it.

    Like it's been argued a million times. Decisions are just as fun as watching someone getting finished.
