Horiguchi/Montague is the fight I'm looking forward to the most from this card. I'm particularly looking forward to see what Horiguchi's flyweight debut is like. I think had he not signed with the UFC and made the drop, he'd probably win the current VTJ 125 lbs. tournament.

I like the Silva/Brown fight, just not the booking.  Seems like a step down for Brown on his current win streak and Silva being inconsistent throughout his UFC run.

One of the highlights from the prelims, Johnny Eduardo knocking out Eddie Wineland:




Also Kyoji put on a nasty beating on Darrell specifically in the second round where he pulled a Pat Barry and stumbled to the stool at the end of the round.

Dave Galera, the guy who lost to Royston Wee, may be the worst fighter to enter the UFC since the late teens. I'm pretty sure he would lose to Reinhardt. Not a doubt in my mind.

Roop beat a UFC title contender by KO. Funch was a decent prospect (New England standards at least) at one point. He got put in the woodchipper though.


Plus, Funch isn't in the UFC anymore.

Ah yes, I forgot he meant currently in the UFC. Yeah, Galera is the equivalent of Funch. Undefeated, local prospects.


Those guys from TUF China are pretty horrible too.
