First off i gotta say BAKADA!! BAKADA!! BAKADA!!

And why are they trying to set up another freakin match between Saku and Silva. Give it up already. If Saku looses again he'll have nowhere to go with 3 consecutive loses. They should match him up with other fighters, so that he can refresh his game plan and not become another Pride punchin bag. Saku's a great fighter, but high level strikers like Crocop and Silva are like kryptonite to him. I'd say another rematch with Mezger or even a match up with Frank would be better.

I am not really interested in seeing sak vs silva again either, but the rest of the fights look good.........

If it were to happen, I hope Ninja busts Arona up somethin' good.

This looks pretty healthy...Nog/Barnett is as close to an actual undisputed heavyweight championship fight yet in MMA. Frye and Coleman will get buy rates, as will any fight with Saku in it. It would be amazing if a couple of things go his way and he beats Silva, but I can't see it happening.

Good to see Fujita back around, a lot to like about him IMO. Henerson and Sperry should be a good match also...

If someone can get rid of Takada, we will all be happy

Having Sak fight Silva again is just plain stupid.
