England/Ireland always get the weaker cards. It's just how it is.

i like joe, and hate diego, so this is a great card for free. but not a ppv.

I think they're sorting out a main event behind the scenes. I think the card looks pretty awesome! Look at the card they sent to NJ. Now that was a shyte card!

thats dumbass though...why market British Fighters to...DUH British Fight-fans...do they think we know as little about our own as the Americans know about us?

Or does it just save them money because they dont need to export the American Fighters that all the Brits really want to see

I like the card. Stevenson/Sanchez should be a great fight. I like Marquardt, Koscheck, and Maia. Granted, I'd like to see better matchups, but those are some of my favorite fighters.

I'm way more interested in this card than any after the GSP/Penn card.

It's like the Boston Tea Party all over again!

For the record, that NJ card did suck. Glad I didn't buy a ticket.
