Some decent news. Scott Smith always expecting. Kinda hoped Travis Browne would get a big fight next or at least him fighting Mark Hunt. I expect those 2 fights to be either the ****e or Facebook prelims just because Rothwell will probably wrestle Hunt to a decision.Hopefully they resign Cyborg because I love the biitches fights.

Sucks for somebody old but on a roll like Bonnar to get hurt and have his momentum stopped and no surprised to Kendall Grove being released, alwasy exciting but never could live up to the hype.

UFC 135 starting to shape up pretty sick though...Definitely the card I'm looking forward to the most this year because Diego & Rampage always my favorite fighters.
