Matt fight was on the main card. that is going to be a great fight and I am rooting for Arroyo to get the sub. I don't like the idea of Dante being on the main card because all he does is LnP. I guess they are hoping Riddle gets another KO. I would have also liked to have seen Cramer fight Cale instead of Tim because I have no doubt those two would swing for the fences. But I do see Tim subbing Cale pretty quickly. But what I really want to know is what happens to the guys who didn't make this card? I hope they don't all get cut befor at least getting one fight in the UFC.
Normally if the UFC is bringing them back, they bring them back for the finale first to see what happens and then make the decision. With all the recent cuts they've made, I'm not surprised the UFC didn't bring back a bunch of the guys who lost on the show. I'm very surprised they put Matt Riddle on the main card and put Tim on the prelims. Not very fair IMO. And Matt Brown-Matt Arroyo would be a good fit for the main card too.
Instead of starting another thread for fight picks here are my picks for this event:
Tanner over Grove
Rooting for Amir but CB takes it (hope I'm wrong)
Sanchez over Luigi
Fisher over Stephens
Dante over Riddle (send him out of the UFC for good Dante please)
Burkman over Hazellet
Arroyo over Brown (rooting for Brown but he's too raw, needs to develop his talent)
Eastman over McFedries
Lister over Horn (interesting to see if Tito shows in Lister's corner)
Credeur over Yarborough
