I usually find the fights I can't get excited for are always the ones I talk about for weeks after the show for all the right reasons, lets hope :)

We agree.

I'm not so excited about this event. I am thinking about going to see it on the big screen just for fun but I have not decided yet.

Most Hooters broadcast UFC events.

Also, I don't know if they are doing up in PA, but a local AMC theatre has begun showing UFC events -- $20 entry, but it is on the BIG screen with awesome sound. IMO - worth it, if you aren't watching it in the comfort of your own (or a friend's) home.

I don't know why they charge so much at those. My local theater shows UFC's and they just charge the normal admission price. It is also a huge theater with a balcony you can drink in.

My bad- they charge $10 per ticket... I must've been thinking "$20" for me and my wife to go.

@Benjamin: I hope you're right:)

On a UFC 115 related note, I did read somewhere (I believe it was on mmajunkie, but I'm not sure since I go through a lot of stuff daily) that insurance costs alone for this event are $12-15M!!! Dana better be hoping this event runs smoothly and that Chuck really draws the PPVs in.

I think that this is going to be one of those cards that people are going to overlook and will wind up being a great night of fights.Usually when there aren't as many "names" they tend to be best fights IMHO

Liddell and Franklin is going to be much more competative then Liddell and Tito. And you know the Cro Cop / Barry fight is going to end with someone going to sleep!

I've got
Liddell
Thiago
Barry (if this doesn't have the ko of the night I'll be amazed)
Rothwell
Condit
Griffen
Danzig
