I want to see this card but I'm going to be out of town. I can't set my DVR to tape it because it reads the channel still as the Speed channel so it doesn't even list the show!

Uriah is being "Dana-botted" by the UFC (see: Nate Diaz, Bisping et al). Dana White will insist Uriah be given at LEAST 3 certifiable cans (like Howard, probably Leben next) to fight and win. The cans are "meant" to lose so the Danabots can wrack up a win record and Rogan/Goldberg can build him up in their commentary as "unstoppable".

Howard will never be praised after his loss. He'll just be a can for someone else, maybe...

Of course, I hope Dana is wrong

dana still has to show that his creative genius TUF is still viable as a show .. he hasn't had a real phenom from the show in a while .. he thought he had it with uriah, but he lost the finale (i think he tanked on purpose) ... he is going to build up uriah as much as he can now and he put him in there with a guy who is going to want to stand ... anyone can get knocked out in this fight

Exactly. Wait and see how much "praise" Rogan/Goldberg give Howard. They will build Howard up as a potential contender who poses a serious threat to Uriah (which they are told to say).

It's part of the narrative. Then, Uriah TKO, or KO's Howard and suddenly Uriah had the "most impressive win of his career" and they will say it was easily one of the "most impressive TKO's" they have ever seen, and "they don't know if they've ever seen a fighter be so dominant" etc (all of which they are told to say).

3-4 fights down the road Uriah faces a contender for the belt and is touted as a serious contender, or "next in line". It's all part of a larger marketing conspiracy. Look at who Uriah fought on TUF. Those guys were both a joke.
