Probably some of the most competitive fights ever to be put on a UFN.

Here's the card:

Main Event
Rashad Evans vs. Sean Salmon

Jake O'Brien vs. Heath Herring
Spencer Fisher vs. Hermes Franca
Nate Marquardt vs. Dean Lister
Josh Burkman vs. Chad Reiner
Ed Herman vs. Chris Price
Din Thomas vs. Clay Guida
Ross Pointon vs. Rich Clementi

The fights between Fisher/Franca, Marquardt/Lister and Thomas/Guida are very evenly matched fights and extremely important fights for all involved. The first two possibly being for the No. 1 contender spot in their division. The O'Brien/Herring matchup should be very interesting as well as Heath makes his debut in the UFC against a good up-and-comer in O'Brien. Can't really say to much about the main event, since it probably shouldn't be the main event considering the other fights on the card. Evans looked extremely impressive in his last fight and is taking on someone making their UFC debut.

unfortunately not really as Zuffa, the owning company of the UFC, has very strict control over their stuff. I'd watch the show thursday night. If you go through some of the posts on here you will see fighter highlights we have put up here.

few questions

1) what shape is the rink?

2) what percentage of the fighting is straight punching/grabs and throws and locks/martial arts?

3) how many weight classes are there?

4) who is the big mohawk guy?

The UFC actually uses a caged octagon not a ring, Pride and other organizations use rings. I am not a big ring fan for MMA.

Percentage wise I have no idea, but the fight can be anything. Boxing, Kickboxing, Mauy Thai(Thai Boxing), Brazilian JJ, Judo, wrestling, submission grappling, Karate and so on.

The UFC currently has 5 weight classes, Lightweight, Welterweight, Middleweight, Light Heavyweight and Heavyweight.

The big mohawk guy that I think you are referring to is Chuck Liddell, the current Light Heavyweight champion.

sometimes they pound the crap out of each other, but you can have very technical grappling matches as well. If they show the Dean Lister vs. Nate Marquardt fight thursday you will probably see a very technical submission/grappling fight. Those can be just as fun and extremely interesting fights. But totally different from a standup striking fight.

yeah any highlight by robby park is good.

NK, did you see that Joe Stevenson is probably going to fight Uno in his next bout, which looks like the PPV in Texas? Lot of talent coming over from Japan lately, although I don't know if Uno and Mishima are still at the top of their game.

Yep, I was reading that.. There were also rumors of Gomi coming over because he wants to rematch BJ Penn..
