  2. Jujitsu Player says:

    Best line up so far for a FOX event. Really looking forward to seeing BJ v Rory and Diaz fight Hendo for the title.

      • Jujitsu Player says:

        You’re probably right, but I can’t rule Diaz out. I thought Cerrone would beat him and he dominated so you never know. He’s one of the most improved fighters out there.

        • aintno1special says:

          He was telling you his nickname is “Bendo”…not “Hendo”…2 different fighters there…That said my vote is for Bendo and I never can bet against an inspired and in shape BJ Penn!!… I’ll be at this fight hoping BJ comes into Seattle with an epic camp!

  3. Xaninho says:

    This fightcard is sick! Can’t wait!

  4. Thom says:

    Yeah, this is better than most of the recent PPVs.

  5. EP says:

    Here are some LOCKS … #1 and this is 110% BJ PENN finishing Rory. #2- Diaz Subbing Bendo for the Belt #3- Shogun TKO – Alexander

    The beatdown that Penn puts on Rory will be on another level. Those of you underestimating Penn and saying he is washed up, out of shape, going to get his ass beat … you all have another thing coming. MArk MY Words … Penn is finishing this fight in devastating fashion. I cannot wait to witness that roid headed punk get his ass beat and get a reality check … and taught a lesson not to disrespect Legends of the sport.

    WAR PENN / DIAZ / SHOGUN

    • BLOW JOB WASHED UP PENN says:

      HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!!!!!! You delusional child.

    • Calvin says:

      Ok Shogun had troubles with Brandon Vera and you’re going to say it’s a 110% lock that he will tko The Mauler gtfo mofo Shogun’s going to get a bigger ass kicking than the one Thiago Silva recieved.

  6. worm says:

    I could see shogon diaz Penn goin down but I hope not…

  7. Mars Ultor says:

    It’s about time we get a good card on FOX.

  8. Dd Serrie says:

    I dont care what peoplr say Bendo wont tap ya right he leaves his neck like he did against franky its over Nate is top tier jitsu fighter improving from ultimate fighter to World champion. War Diaz

  9. Korean Zombie says:

    Lets go Mike Chiesa

  10. Ryan Prieur says:

    Stacked card, can’t wait to see it and hope no one gets hurt between now and then!

  11. 123 says:

    Rory Mcdonald vs Bj Penn will be insane, the whole fight card looks insane.. guaranteed finishes.

  12. Josiah says:

    great bouts, the main card is a must see,
    -hopefully diaz gets the w, probably a sub or a choke on the early rounds, i don’t see a ko between ben & diaz
    -Gustafsson looking pretty solid on his last fight, hope he wins so that we can see something new against JBJ
    -i’m definitely with BJ, some say BJ has no cardio, i don’t care, he’s not gonna need it anyway if he ko’s rory in the 1st rnd
    -always excited to see Swick even back then, hope he wins this one against the immortal.
    -the rest of the card are also good, its nice to see Dennis Siver & T.J. Dillashaw again very exciting fighters

  13. blessedmma says:
