    Bummed that Hapa Browne isn’t fighting. Must be hard to find a replacement on one weeks notice to scrap with that guy.

    Hopefully they find a good matchup for him soon

  2. BJJWhiz says:

    Dang these are some good fights for FOX!:)

  3. TD says:

    Super bummed…Hapa would have had a strong spotlight this time

  4. obvious says:

    injury = roids are still showing up in piss

  5. J.m. Broom says:

    It seems like these guys get injured way more than they did a few years ago. Personally I think the ufc peaked in 2008, the new crop of fighters aren’t as interesting or personable as the liddel’s, hughses, penn’s or forrest and tito’s… oh and can’t forget couture and to some extent franklin
