    Blanco and Corassani should be a damn good one! Only other potential I see is Nate and Gray. Gray may end up dropping him tho, but hey who knows. I hope not or maybe it'll re-ignite big brothers fight drive.. I can only hope

    Wow this is actually a pretty weak card now. I was looking forward to the flyweight title being on the card as well as Sergio Moraes vs Zak Cummings. Let's hope some of the relative unknown guys can step up and bring it.

    I think people are just going to have to start enjoying zero star-power cards and just watch for the fights themselves and hopefuly the fighters realize that and make you a fan of their performance, because that's the only thing that the UFC cares about, viewers at home,and asses in the seats.

    I dont complain about cards, I love MMA for the fights regardless of star power and names on the cards... Shit Jeff you should know me by now I watch everything that has some bang to it

    In a way I think the more cards the UFC holds, the better for orgs like WSoF and Bellator. If the semi serious mma fan can get used to watching and enjoying fights of guys who do not have a name and a 'brand', all the better for mma as a whole, development and smaller orgs.

    This is an extremely weak card, but anyway almost all the TUF finales are pretty bad in paper.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Hope Blanco can stifle Akira over 3 rounds. I don't see him getting a finish, but I'd like to see him succeed.

    A lot of the time the "shit" cards end up being the best cards

    Even with her losing in the first round i'd think they would have booked a fight for Shayna Baszler
