    Wow, yeah...2 month turnaround...didn't even realize that, I just was thinking of belts.

    Yeah, the LW's should be good but if Penn doesn't win against Edgar, they better stack that card with some awesome fights because I can't see a Edgar/Maynard or Guida or someone being a huge hit on PPV. GSP and Lesnar are the UFC's two biggest bread makers in terms of their champions, if Lesnar is going to be unavailable, I bet they end up pushing back GSP/Koscheck to the NYE card and have the LW headline an early december card.

    Man Velasquez is in for such a tough fight, Lesnar is so much bigger.

    I think that is going to be the difference, Lesnar's size. I think Carwin has the best shot @ beating Lesnar because they're basically the same person. I hope Cain wins, but I can't see him being able to defend the TD all fight long with the major size difference.

    Undefeated German fighter Pascal "Panzer" Krauss to make UFC debut @ UFC 122.

    Panzer is a damn cool nickname except it is close to pansy.

    After everybody noticed Dan Hardy's airbrushed tattoos, it's no wonder the UFC opted to leave the Brown Pride tattoo on Velasquez this time around. There was some talk they wouldn't put it on the poster.

    Forrest Griffin/Jon Jones is half way on for 123.

    One of two fighters has agreed. I'm guessing it's Jones.

    Shogun out til Spring '11, with a good possibility of being out until summer of '11.

    That is a very long layoff for Rashad. Get him an interim title shot.

    Rumour has Silva/Sonnen 2 and Edgar/Maynard 2 both on the same card, likely NYE.
