    Both cards look awesome for free cards, let alone FUEL cards. Which do you think is more stacked? Which do you think will end up being better entertainment wise?

    UFC on FUEL 7

    Renan Barao vs. Michael Mcdonald
    Dennis Siver vs. Cub Swanson
    Jim Manuwa vs. Cyrille Diabate
    Gunnar Nelson vs. Justin Edwards
    James Te Huna vs. Ryan Jimmo
    Matt Riddle vs. Che Mills
    Terry Etim vs. Renee Forte
    Paul Sass vs. Danny Castillo
    Josh Grispi vs. Andy Ogle
    Stanislav Nedkov vs. Tom Watson
    Vaughan Lee vs. Motonobu Tezuka
    Ulysses Gomez vs. Phil Harris

    UFC on FUEL 8

    Wanderlei Silva vs. Brian Stann
    Stefan Struve vs. Mark Hunt
    Diego Sanchez vs. Takanori Gomi
    Siyar Bahadurzada vs. Dong Hyun Kim
    Riki Fukuda vs. Brad Tavares
    Marcelo Guimaraes vs. Hyun Gyu Lim
    Cristiano Marcello vs. Kazuki Tokudome
    Alex Caceres vs. Kyung Ho Kang
    Takeya Mizugaki vs. Bryan Caraway

    I think there will be another three or four fights added to the Japan card but I doubt they'll be high profile fights. Maybe they'll showcase some local talent. hope that Brown/Hardy makes it on the card but I don't think it will, if the fight ends up happening 158 will more than likely be where it takes place at.


    I'm more excited for FUEL 8, because of Stann/Wand (should be a war for however long it lasts) Struve/Hunt (fun fight, either Struve by sub or Hunt by KO)
    and Sanchez/Gomi (should be a great fight).

    I'm still pretty excited about FUEL 7 though, Barao/McDonald and Siver/Swanson should be great standup fights.

    Fuel 7 has it for me. Just by a little bit.

    Barao vs McDonald will be the greatest fight ever

    Fuel 8. Seeing Hunto back will be a pleasure.

    I love a lot of these fights.

    Riddle vs. The British will be a fun saga.
    Wand in Japan, shit is about to go down.
    A defending interim champion!
    Gunnar to continue being the Dark Horse.
    Marcello and Wand on the same card :O

    Have to say 7 as I am going. Barao-McDonald is a stupidly good fight on paper and anyone who moans about the main event because the names aren't bigger is an idiot.

    the overall goodyness of Fuel 7 is topped by the sheer glee of finally seeing Hunt again at Fuel 8.

    I think FUEL 8 has more star power. But FUEL 7 has some really interesting fights in it's own right. Barao may have had a less than stellar fight his last time out but he's a seriously talented kid going up against another very dangerous guy in Michael McDonald. Siver & Swanson are veteran guys who always come to fight and personally, I really enjoy watching Cyrille Diabate fight. I think the guy likely won't be making a title bid anytime soon but he's a tough dude and is skilled anywhere the fight goes. Also interested in seeing Ryan Jimmo fight again.

    But all of that, in my opinion, is trumped by the sheer epicness of Wanderlei returning to Japan. Maybe my Pride geekdom is coming out but Silva in Japan against a guy that we all know will throwdown is all kinds of awesome. Also, there's no doubt that Struve / Hunt and Sanchez / Gomi will deliver.

    Both of those are better than any fuel card ever. I'm pretty sure...

    The only complaint about Fuel 7 is there are a couple of lopsided ones in there. Jimmo will destroy Te Huna and likewise with Manuwa destroying Diabate.

    Jimmo vs Manuwa would have been a barnburner but both guys could make a title run with 3-4 fights so I guess they don't want to eliminate one of them so early

    Ufc on Fuel 8 has more interesting fights, i think Wanderlei will break his hands on Stanns Chin.

    I'm giving the edge to Fuel 8, but both cards are absolutely beautiful.

    Both are gonna be great but I'm looking forward to 7 more because I love the lighter weight classes and I have a feeling that wand will get knocked out and I don't want to see him lose again

    Both are great, but I would take 8 over 7. Thankfully I don't have to choose.
