By Jamie McAllister
Michael Bisping vs. Tim Boetsch rumoured to be moved to UFC 149.

The UFC 149 card is still developing with Jose Aldo vs. Erik Koch, Shogun Rua vs. Thiago Silva and the addition of Bisping vs. Boetsch will give Calgary fans a solid fight card to attend.

Here is how the UFC 149 card is shaping up.

    That sucks. I’m going to be at 148. Was looking forward to super stacked card.

    ^ I was thinking the same fuckin’ thing! What’s with all this shuffling bullshit?! >:/

    The UFC should have pulled Boetch from the card and had Bisping fight Lombard

    • DMAC says:

      Damn good idea! They need a contender to fight Lombard and Bisping makes complete sense.

    • ElRammer says:

      That’s exactly what I was hoping to read when I saw the headline. Lombard needs to work his way up the ladder (if he is proven capable) and Bisping is pretty highly regarded by the UFC, for whatever reason. It makes sense. No disrespect to Tim Boetsch. I’d love to see Lombard have Bisping twitching on the mat Hendo style. On the other hand after he put on a good show against Sonnen maybe Bisping is too high up the ladder, though Bisping as a number one contender is hilarious to me.

      Lombard is fighting brian stan

    That blows. More shuffling.

  6. Elias says:

    NOOOOO! I’m gonna be at UFC 148 as well. This sucks! Please be a fake rumor please!

  7. GET RID OF TRT says:

    Funny how no Canadians in the main card

  8. GET RID OF FITCH (forever) says:

    Speaking of canadians i was looking at GSP’s record today and i was shocked to see he has only fought twice since Dan hardy. That fight was ages and ages ago. So tired of all clowns that come on here and say GSP fights 2-3 times a year. What a dicrase to 170 lb weight class. To me it shows such lack of respect for the otehr fighters to create such a log jam. Its like GSP has basiclly put all the otehr 170lbers careers and title hopes on hold. Time for a new champ who actually wants to fight. Yes he is milking his injuries just as everyone said he would. Jon jones has fought more in last 2 years than GSP did in 8 years

    • Captquakers says:

      He has been injured to be fair.

      I don’t understand why everyone hates on Bisping. He has been finished once In his whole career and yet he get no love. People are so desperate to dislike Bisping they bring up Hendo which happened around 3-4 years ago. People thought Sonnen would smash him yet Bisping showed how good he Is and yet still no love.
