    UFC 126 - Saturday, Feb 5
    Fight Card
    Anderson Silva v Vitor Belfort
    Forrest Griffin v Rich Franklin
    Mike Pierce v Kenny Robertson
    Jake Ellenberger v Carlos Eduardo Rocha
    Jon Jones v Ryan Bader
    Miguel Angel Torres v Antonio Banuelos
    Sam Stout v Paul Kelly
    Chad Mendes v Michihiro Omigawa
    Paul Taylor v Gabe Ruediger
    Norifumi Yamamoto v Demetrious Johnson


    I know its a bit premature, but this card thumps UFC 125 by a mile. The main event. Griffin vs. Franklin. Bone Jones vs Bader. I am liking this one a lot. Can't wait, so let's discuss it now.

    Update on Vitor Belfort, who recently received his blue belt in Shotokan Karate, is having South American Karate champ Jayme Sandall to assist him for preparing for Anderson Silvia.

    This should be a great show - I mean, Yamamoto/Johnson isn't even making the Spike prelims.

    -- Which Vitor Belfort shows up to fight? That'll determine how the main goes.
    -- Just how much does Franklin have left?
    -- Jones/Bader has the potential to be one hell of a fight.
    -- Torres is a fun fighter to watch. Hoping he can get back to a title fight.

    A. Silva sporting the Corinthians jersey. Normally I'd say WIN to that. But considering Corinthians current form, that might be bad karma:eek::(

    I saw it. Now I know why he is wearing the Corinthian shirt. It's for Ronaldo the Real Phenom. The Phenom is Vitor Belfort's nickname. When I saw the #9, it made total sense. That bozo translator didn't even repeat what Anderson said about Ronaldo. What a poser :mad: Anyway, great event. Couple of surprises. Good TV :D

    Yeah it was legit product, although I was expecting more hands from that Franklin X Griffin. The pressure will be on for that Silva X GSP fight, you think? But GSP has Olympic aims.....allegedly.

    People won't remember this, but when Vitor caught Anderson's first kick and they went to the ground, Anderson narrowly avoided a HUGE right hand by Vitor. That was a fight ender. But Anderson was very prepared and avoided most of Vitors blows, and how do you train for a guy who can pull off kicks like that?
