Just haven't really seen any posts regarding this PPV tonight. Anyone watching? Anyone have any thoughts/predictions?

I think that Rampage is back and focused and will probably drop Jardine at some point. If Jardine can stay outside and land some of his much-vaunted leg kicks he might have shot.

I'm not sure what to think of Carwin and GG. Seems like Carwin should be able to use his wrestling to keep it standing and bring the leather, but I've sold GG short before and he can surprise, I just think he gets out muscled here.

It's interesting to see how far Brandon Vera has fallen, from top contender to "may not be broadcast" undercard.

There are some other interesting match ups, but I think I'm keeping my $45 in my pocket tonight.

Jardine is hard to drop. You have to hit him just right. I think he learned a lot from that Alexander fight he lost. I'd like to see Jardine win.

Nah, I'm more interested in the other fights.

I'm purchasing this one because of the Carwin/Gonzaga fight. I like Gonzaga, and it's also time to see if Carwin is the real deal. I'd say Gonzaga's the better fighter, but Carwin might be able to control Gonzaga the same way Randy did. Should be an interesting fight.

I was never too pumped about this fight. And without a strong main event I don't see many buys. If it was half priced for a half decent card maybe. And this fight doesn't make sense to me anyway. Rampage just destroyed the man that destroyed jardine. I know mma math doesn't always add up but it makes it hard to hype a fight. I think this one should have been anderson vs lietes then 97 should have been rashads title on the line . Then 98 was worked out good. Then 99 has a big fight decent main event.

I don't like champs turning down fights. Bj saying he won't fight till late summer. Rashad turning down rampage. I feel if they deny a a challanger they should be stripped and shipped to the bottom of the list.

Agree with you on this card, it just doesn't do it for me, especially at full PPV price. I wonder what the buyrate for this one will be, no title fights, only one true "contender" fight (Gonzaga-Carwin is interesting, but neither of them is next in line at HW), plus a crap economy spell a recipe for disappointment for the UFC if I had to guess.

I really don't think anybody cares that much, there aren't many interesting fights on this card.
I can't imagine it will do too well on PPV,
the only fight I am pretty interested in is Carwin/GG

Just got done watching the previews on DirecTV. I have to admit that I admire Carwin's calmness and confidence. I think this will be a fight that ends brutally in the 1st round.

i'm interested. Jardine's beaten Forrest, and Liddell. both former LHW champs and now he gets another former LHW champ. a lot of upsets lately so i won't be surprised if Jardine just leg kicks the hell out of Page and gets a win.

I think this is the first time you'll see Rampage avoid those leg kicks. Jardine kicks 2-3 times as hard as Forrest and I don't think his new trainers are going to allow Rampage to go unprepared for those. If they fail to do that, Jardine will definitely tear up Rampage's knee, and he should hire all new trainers, then go tear up the streets of Miami again.

well he's gonna have to because you know Jardine is coming with those until Page shows he can stop them. if he does stop them, then Jardine doesn't have the stand-up to match Page. Page has the best technical boxing in the LHW division.

I see page adding another brutal ko to his highlight reel

Yeah, his trainers have made him move like a pro. I love the slow-mo video of him dodging Wandy's punches then throwing that left hook perfectly when the opening presented itself. Definitely the best pure boxing I've seen in MMA.

I watch for free unless it is a fight that I am pumped to pay for.
