WEC on the 10th live on Versus, UFC on the 11th live on Spike! Good stuff on both, highly recommended! <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>WEC 46 Card: <BR> <BR>Ben Henderson vs. Jamie Varner (LW unification bout) <BR>Raphael Assuncao vs. Urijah Faber <BR>Dave Jansen vs. Kamal Shalorus <BR>Mike Brown vs. Anthony Morrison <BR>Mackens Semerzier vs. Deividas Taurosevicius <BR> <BR>Akitoshi Tamura vs. Charlie Valencia <BR>Bryan Caraway vs. Mark Hominick <BR>Wagnney Fabiano vs. Clint Godfrey <BR>George Roop vs. Eddie Wineland <BR>Will Campuzano vs. Coty Wheeler <BR> <BR>Varner vs. Henderson - This is a must see fight. Should be nothing short of exciting. Both are very very good wrestlers. Varner has an edge in the standup dept I think. Can't wait. <BR> <BR>Assuncao vs. Faber - The return of Faber. Assuncao is no pushover. The winner of this fight could be Aldo's first title defense. <BR> <BR>Brown vs. Morrison - Don't know much about Morrison, but feel sorry for him drawing Brown after losing his belt. <BR> <BR>Semerzier vs. Taurosevicius - Good matchup between two well rounded fighters. Semerzier just coming off a shocking submission win over Fabiano. <BR> <BR>Overall on this WEC card, there are 5 current, interim and former champs fighting. Great fighters to watch. <BR> <BR>On to the UFC card scheduled for Monday the 11th Live on Spike: <BR> <BR>Gray Maynard vs. Nate Diaz <BR>Efrain Escudero vs. Evan Dunham <BR>Tom Lawlor vs. Aaron Simpson <BR>Amir Sadollah vs. Brad Blackburn <BR> <BR>Chris Leben vs. Jay Silva <BR>Rick Story vs. Jesse Lennox <BR>Thiago Tavares vs. Nik Lentz <BR>Mike Guymon vs. Rory MacDonald <BR>Kyle Bradley vs. Rafael Dos Anjos <BR>Gerald Harris vs. Mike Massenzio <BR>Nick Catone vs. Jesse Forbes <BR> <BR>Maynard vs. Diaz - Conventional thinking is if Maynard wins, he will very soon get a playdate with Penn. I love watching Diaz fight, but just don't see much of a way he can win this. Maynard is a Bully. Amazing power on not the best standup, but top notch wrestling. Diaz is probably more evenly well rounded, but again, tough to beat Maynard. <BR> <BR>Escudero vs. Dunham - Both these guys are undefeated. Both have shown a lot in their brief UFC careers. I can't wait to see this fight, probably the one I'm most excited about &amp; I sense an upset. <img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/crazy.gif" border=0> <BR> <BR>Lawlor vs. Simpson - Great middle tier middleweight matchup! Simpson is undefeated, great wrestler &amp; good power. Lawlor is well rounded and, well, crazy. Another exciting fight, but I look for Simpson to take it. <BR> <BR>Sadollah vs. Blackburn - Amir coming off his victory over Baroni...Blackburn is 3-0 in his UFC career and a very good test for Sadollah. Pick em. <BR> <BR>Funny to see Leben on the unaired portion of a Fight Night card. Very interesting.

Nobody is interested in these cards?

lizzyb 01-06-2010 11:56 AM

I am very interested in the WEC card. I'm bummed that we can't be there in person. <BR> <BR>I'd like to see Varner win, as I'd like to see a rematch title fight with Cerrone. Of course, I'd also really like to see Urijah Faber win. <IMG SRC="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/happy.gif" ALT=":-)" BORDER=0> <BR> <BR>I don't like the Diaz brothers in general, so I guess I'd rather see him lose. I don't care one way or another about the rest.

notsobueno 01-06-2010 1:03 PM

I knew you'd be interested in the return of Urijah!!

lizzyb 01-06-2010 1:44 PM

I'm so predictable! He's just downright fun to watch and always puts on a great show.

ripr 01-06-2010 1:49 PM

I'm bummed that Direct TV dropped Versus...no WEC for me, so I've kind of lost interest, but casually stay in tuned via the internets. <BR> <BR>I like the Fight Night Card, though. Glad it's gonna be free and on a weeknight. <BR> <BR>I have no real favorites on the card, but I really like Maynard and want to see him fight Penn this year.

freerider12 01-07-2010 11:41 AM

I think Nathans stand up is far superior than Grays and as long he has dominant position on the ground he has a good chance. He does best when people actually try to fight him unlike Clay Guida who held on to him for three rounds. 209 all the way. <BR> <BR>Uriah is a great role model for the sport but after seeing the domination of Jose Aldo in the 145 division I dont think anyone in the WEC stands a chance. I would love for Aldo to jump up to 155 and step into the octagon. <BR> <BR>Both cards are gonna put on great shows

notsobueno 01-07-2010 2:38 PM

Maynard's gonna do the same thing Guida did. But Maynard has much much more power, so if he connects it will be a different story.

notsobueno 01-10-2010 9:20 PM

WOW....maybe the best Faber I've ever seen. Awesome. Can't wait to see him and Aldo fight.

hillbilly 01-10-2010 9:58 PM

So glad Varner got beat...What an a$$ clown after...Pulled a Tito for sure! <BR> <BR>Faber looked like he has calmed down some in the cage and I think that makes him better. <BR> <BR>I want to see Cerrone/Varner 2

bear 01-11-2010 10:08 AM

great fights, I'm glad to see that the california kid and mike brown are back! Also like jeff said I'm so so so glad Varner got beat! i can't stand that guy what a punk! "I came to fight and he came to graple" ahhh dude it's MMA thats part of the fight!

lizzyb 01-11-2010 10:54 AM

Varner is a classless tool. As much as I would have liked to see a rematch with Cerrone.. I'm glad he lost. <BR> <BR>Good to see Faber back in fighting form. Nice finish.

notsobueno 01-11-2010 11:05 AM

Yeah, he came to grapple, I came to fight.....thats why I got caught in a guillotine while I WAS GOING FOR A TAKEDOWN. <BR> <BR>I say let Cerrone beat Varner in a 3 rounder, then rematch with Henderson. <BR> <BR>Faber's finish just blew me away. Soooooo quick and locked in, Assuncao had no idea what hit him. And Assuncao is an amazing fighter.

phatboypimp 01-11-2010 1:14 PM

Certainly was a night of comeback fights, I was a little shocked that Brown, Varner and Faber all had tough fights coming off extended time out of the ring. I was shocked that Faber choked out a top five BJJ champ, impressive, although I thought he showed more ring rust than the rest. <BR> <BR>(Message edited by phatboypimp on January 11, 2010)

WOW....that Lawlor vs. Simpson fight was nice. I thought Lawlor won, but that second round could have gone either way. Great fight for sure.

notsobueno 01-11-2010 11:51 PM

Didn't I pick Dunham to win? YES. Tap or snap. Your opponents HAVE to know that if you don't tap, it will snap.

notsobueno 01-12-2010 12:29 AM

Dang I missed it

notsobueno 01-12-2010 12:57 AM

I'm sure Spike will replay it at some point. The first three fights were very entertaining at the very least....and two of them went to a decision. The main event was so blah. Maynard better not get a shot at BJ after that performance.

poser007 01-12-2010 1:48 AM

I don't see ayone beating BJ accept for BJ
