    Well they replaced the original main event which would have been one hell of an even fight between 2 top guys that are never boring

    With a main event that features.. 2 evenly matched top guys that are never boring.. ;) Well as much as i hate hearing Mike Goldberg say “dont blink” i think this is one of those fights, where i sure as hell will be listening to what Goldberg is saying, and agreeing 100%

  6. King Gareth says:

    The whole card looks good. I hope Henderson drops to 185 though. That division needs some help.
