It'll be nice to see Hughes again, and I am looking forward to Marcus Davis vs. Mike Swick...but everything else is meh. Who knows, this card might turn out to be one of the best to watch, I might even check it out at a restaurant or something. We'll see.

How this card isn't free is beyond me. Honestly...EliteXC's free card on CBS is better. WEC's live event tomorrow night is a LOT better. I honestly think UFC's last fight night card, was better. I really don't see how the UFC thinks they'll make money on this PPV. I'm barely even interested to be honest.

This would have been a great show for them to do a free us ppv like they did last year. I would watch the fight on spike for sure but not intrested enough to buy the card. I think they could have had this be something they do every year having one free ppv that may not be the best ppv card but is better then most fight night cards and has maybe some newer talent maybe as a way to get more buys for their future ppv fights.

The thing that makes it even more lame is if you want to watch it live it is on at noon. or you can fork out the money to see the replay at 7. This whole card is just a bad idea anyway. Which means if you go out to see it. You will be drunk at about 1 and then out and what do you do with the rest of your day?
The official weigh-in results for UFC 85: “Bedlam” at the O2 Arena in London, England, are in. And there’s some ridiculous news to report. Thiago Alves came in super heavy at 174 pounds for his main event fight against Matt Hughes. He will not have to shed the extra poundage — he and Hughes have agreed to fight at a catchweight. He’ll more than likely have to pay Hughes a percentage of his salary for the massive blunder and pay in the court of public opinion for the lack of professionalism.
Looks like Alves likes partying more than taking his job serious.
Sadly I'm not interested at all. I haven't been interested in Hughes since he beat Royce.
Thiago Alves isn't the next big thing. I know people look at him as the future of that division but I don't see it. Put him against a decent striker and he'll get KTFO. I'm still pissed Karo lost to him. I feel Karo deserved a title shot years ago..how he still hasn't gotten one is beyond me.
Marcus Davis vs. Swick seems to be the fight to watch. I think it might even be fight of the night.
Bisping is a beast at 185. I hope he comes with the same agressive style as he had in his last fight. He just looked so much better than he ever did at LHW.
Brandon Vera looked extremely out of shape and soft in his fight against Sylvia. Hopefully he comes out in this fight looking as impressive as he did in his previous fights.
But overall it is a weak card. It should have been free. I think I'm going to pass on this one and just wait for Griffin vs. Rampage
