I'd say Dan Hardy vs. GSP is the least compelling of those match-ups. As much as I like to watch St. Pierre fight, I don't think Hardy has the tools to be competitive with the champ. His only hope is that George makes a colossal mistake or has nerves like when Serra walked in there and clubbed him.

Mir vs. Carwin, IMHO, is competitive. It should be a nice break for Mir after trying to wrestle his way out from under the Vanilla Gorilla. He'll probably test Shane's chin.

Almeida vs. Matt Brown might be the fight I'm most excited about. Brown's a scrapper and a brawler, and it's a crossroads fight for Almeida.

Lesnar just got better after a run-in with diverticulitis...so he'll be competing around April again.

Yeah, that's very similar to what about killed my mom last year. It's amazing how the body can heal itself. Doctors call it a miracle, I say science is failing to prove what doctors need to know.

These three fights seem interesting to me.

Thiago Alves vs. Jon Fitch
Alves has brute strength...Fitch has a no quit attitude. Should make for an all out war.

Anderson Silva vs. Vitor Belfort
Belfort can drop bombs and has a pretty good chin. He might be the biggest test that Silva has faced yet.

Sam Stout vs. Jeremy Stephens
Both guys like to throw bombs. Should be an interesting fight. This one should end with a highlight reel knockout for one of them.

Discwrangler- my mom had that as well last year! It is a horrible thing indeed. My mom was in the hospital for a few days until they figured out what was giving her such awful lower abdominal pain. I joked with her at first that it was mono :P But, now she can't have any nuts or seeds because they may become lodged in her intestines and cause problems.

My mom had something different, but it was similar in the way it was life threatening/inhibiting.

Jon Jones cracked Vera's orbital bone in three places with this hit.

22 years old and already people want him to fight Anderson Silva.

Jones throws gruesome elbows. I can't think of a better matchup at 205lbs for Anderson Silva

Can you believe there is talk of a Liddell/Couture 4? What would be the purpose?

I thought Dana White was saying that Chuck wouldn't fight again? He was spouting off about how he doesn't want to see his friend get seriously injured and have his reputation ruined.

Randy vs. Chuck 4 better be free on Spike TV.

Shogun looked good in his last outing, that was a helluva fight. That is what championship fights should look like.
